Where to Stay
First, you’ll need to figure out where you want to stay. We recommend staying either downtown or in The Gulch neighborhood. There are plenty of hotels to fit any budget, or you can find more unique vacation rentals on sites like Airbnb or VRBO. Nashville is a popular destination for bachelorette parties, so make sure you book your flights and accommodations well in advance.
If you stay in the heart of downtown, you’ll be able to easily walk to the popular bars and honky tonks on Broadway without worrying about catching a taxi or an Uber. For a luxurious stay within walking distance of Broadway, check out Omni Nashville Hotel, Fairlane Nashville Hotel, or The Hermitage Hotel. There are also more budget-friendly options like the Embassy Suites or Aloft Nashville West End.
This trendy neighborhood is known for its upscale hotels, chic boutiques, and trendy restaurants. It’s a popular choice for bachelorette parties due to its proximity to downtown and its modern vibe. Fairfield by Marriott or Thompson Nashville will both put you in the center of this lively district.
