KIMPTON AERTSON HOTEL ANNOUNCES JUNE 14 OPENING
Kimpton to Welcome Guests to Midtown Nashville
NASHVILLE, TN (May 23, 2017) – Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants announces today Kimpton Aertson Hotel, located at the corner of 21st Avenue and Broadway in Nashville’s Midtown neighborhood, will officially open its doors on Wednesday, June 14. Its own unique gateway to the rhythm of Nashville, Kimpton Aertson Hotel marks the boutique hotel company’s first venture in Music City and the expansion of its footprint in the Southeast.
From the living room to the 17th floor, Kimpton Aertson Hotel tells a story true to its name, one of grit and honesty with elevated style. Homage to its neighboring university’s namesake, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Aertson Hotel recalls the humble beginnings of the Vanderbilt family’s Dutch ancestor Jan Aertson, who established the family’s roots in America in the mid-17th century. That pioneering spirit is one that drove the railroad tycoon to elevate the family name to legendary status, and one that to this day characterizes the creative and innovative spirit of Nashville and now Aertson too.
As anchor of the new mixed-use complex Aertson Midtown, featuring 350 high-end apartment residences and 35,000-square-feet of prime real estate, many of Kimpton Aertson Hotel’s 180 guest rooms, including 12 spacious suites, offer city and Vanderbilt campus views and all a welcome reprieve from the bustling streets of downtown. Upon entering the hotel, guests immediately feel a sense of genuine hospitality and community, thanks to Kimpton’s ‘luxury without the attitude’ approach. Aertson juxtaposes that authentic yet accommodating service against a compelling contemporary arts program throughout, beginning with the front desk’s commissioned creation of hand-knotted, painted rope by artist Orly Genger. The open-concept living room further extends its welcome with industrial-meets-organic details like herringbone tiled floors, a cascading curtain of river stones in front of a double-sided fireplace, and reclaimed wood ceilings.
“We are ready to bring our innovative and authentic boutique hotel experience to one of America’s most exciting cities, Nashville,” says General Manager Mark Hayes. “From the moment our guests arrive, they will be treated liked family, welcomed with a genuine smile and with locally tailored amenities at their fingertips.”
Adjacent to the hotel, and also accessible through Aertson’s living room, is Henley, a modern American brasserie featuring James Beard Award-winning Chef RJ Cooper serving a culinary menu of shareable dishes and innovative communal courses highlighting regional flavors. Henley’s full bar, wine and cocktail program evolves seasonally with a strong emphasis on whiskey, bourbon and Southern spirits.
On its 8th floor, Aertson Hotel boasts more than 6,500-square-feet of flexible meeting and event spaces to accommodate groups and parties of all sizes and occasions.
The star of the floor’s four spaces is its stunning 3,630-square-foot Patterson Ballroom with floor-to-ceiling windows and a large wrap-around private outdoor terrace, providing unobstructed views of Music City. For those looking to take their meetings and events to even greater heights, Aertson Hotel’s 17th floor indoor event space and private outdoor terrace treats up to 150 guests to 270-degree panoramic views of downtown Nashville. All of the events at Aertson Hotel enjoy chef-driven creative catering menus from Henley’s Executive Chef RJ Cooper, bringing award-winning restaurant experiences to private events and meetings.
Guest amenities at Aertson Hotel include all of Kimpton’s signature offerings, such as luxurious Atelier Bloem bath amenities; its “Forgot It? We’ve Got It!” menu of travel and vacation essentials; a thoughtful mini bar with a hint of local flair; free Wi-Fi for Kimpton Karma Rewards members; complimentary morning coffee and tea service in the living room; hosted nightly social hour featuring local blends; and health-minded wellness options, such as complimentary custom PUBLIC Bikes rentals, 24-hour access to the hotel’s expansive fitness center and an in-room Gaiam yoga mat for use during a guest’s stay. Unique to Aertson Hotel, the 8th floor also features an outdoor swimming pool and cabanas to soak up the Southern sun, and the adjacent Woodhouse Spa is available to guests for a bevy of pampering services from massages to manicures. As with all Kimpton properties, Aertson Hotel is pet-friendly, welcoming four-legged guests and providing them with their own services and amenities upon registration at no extra cost.
