The Fairlane Hotel Now Open in Nashville
Music City’s Newest Boutique Hotel Delivers a Retro-Modern Experience with Timeless Appeal and Classic Style
Nashville, TN. (March 1, 2018) — The Fairlane, a luxe 81-room boutique hotel, opens today in downtown Nashville’s Arts District. Driven by the clean simplicity of mid-century architectural design, the Fairlane Hotel is bringing the style and personality of the 1960’s and 70’s back to Music City. A vibrant setting is complemented by classic food and beverage with Ellington’s Mid Way Bar & Grill, Mile End Delicatessen and Union Teller Coffee Counter, establishing the Fairlane Hotel as downtown Nashville’s go-to destination.
The Fairlane Hotel was inspired by the preeminent international style of the building’s original interior and exterior architecture as the Nashville headquarters of the now defunct Fidelity Federal Savings & Loan. Terrazzo flooring, original wood paneling and travertine columns, brass elements, interior plants, open floor plans, and a green, brown and crème color palette are timelessly presented with a modern take on the prominent style of the 1960’s and 70’s.
At the Fairlane Hotel, guests will find some of the city’s largest standard size guestrooms, all complete with era-appropriate details. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide expansive exterior views of the surrounding cityscape, and semi-transparent peekaboo showers crafted from custom walnut paneling add a dramatic visual element to guestroom interiors.
“It was intrinsically important to create a space that is desirable to locals and travelers from both a design and amenity perspective,” said General Manager Ben Webster. “From the spacious guestrooms, to the widespread F&B offerings and out-of-the-box programming, the Fairlane Hotel will be the place for everyone in Nashville.”
A destination in itself, the 4,000-square foot Penthouse will be Nashville’s premier private events space. Reminiscent of a 70’s crash pad, the smoked mirrored ceilings are playfully suggestive, while those looking for discretion may take a private elevator. A wraparound terrace provides an outdoor escape, with a dedicated dining area and communal soft seating boasting unparalleled views. For guests who need to get down to business, two dedicated meeting spaces are available - the Business Room and Big Business Room. The Fairlane Hotel’s buzzing lobby is anchored by Union Teller Coffee Counter, where guests and locals alike can start their day with freshly-brewed Stumptown coffee and light bites, and Mile End Delicatessen, a Montreal-style (by way of Brooklyn) delicatessen and bar. The Delicatessen features many of the items made famous at Mile End’s popular NYC-based outposts, specializing in traditional cured and smoked Jewish Deli meats and house-baked bagels and breads, along with new offerings exclusively available at the Fairlane Hotel. Ellington’s Mid Way Bar and Grill, the fourth-floor terrace restaurant, is the prime location for those in the know to enjoy leisurely lunches, happy hours and casual dinners. Guests are invited to sit indoors or grab a seat by a fire pit on the wraparound terrace while enjoying classic American fare, a cold martini and service that will make anyone feel like a regular. “Our goal is to combine genuine service with a playful attitude and consistently deliver that to each guest, whether they are stopping by for lunch or staying for a week,” said Webster. “The Fairlane Hotel embodies Nashville’s contagious energy and creative spirit and we invite everyone who walks through our doors to soak it all in and stay awhile.”
Every day at 5:00 p.m., professional virtue is interrupted by some damn-good vice with the Fairlane at Five to end the workday. The resident ‘Governor’ circulates the lobby with a vintage bar cart serving local spirits and bottled Coca Cola, all to the tune of whatever soundtrack suits the mood, creating energy and connecting guests.
Guests can enhance their stay experience with one of several add-on packages, including a romantic getaway package providing a Polaroid camera to capture those little (or big) moments, a hot chicken tour package stopping at Nashville’s best hot chicken spots, and a chance to experience Nashville’s version of the Mile High Club during a Penthouse party complete with private in-room band or DJ, security detail and 3:00 a.m. “breakfast” delivery. Located off Broadway between Union and Church Streets in the Capitol and Arts District, the Fairlane Hotel is centrally situated near many notable Nashville attractions, including Ryman Auditorium, Riverfront Park, Schermerhorn Symphony Center and Bridgestone Arena.
