The Hermitage Hotel Unveils "A Change of View" Staycation Experience in Celebration of Starring Role on ABC's The Bachelor Presents: Listen to your Heart

Nashville’s Beloved Grand Dame Hotel Welcomes Aspiring Song Writers and Tennesseans With Signature Gracious Hospitality, a New Spring Menu at Capitol Grille and Property-Wide Enhancements. 

NASHVILLE, TN (May 19, 2020) – With the easing of shelter-in-place guidelines, The Hermitage Hotel is grateful for the opportunity to welcome friends and neighbors to refresh and recharge with their “A Change of View Staycation Getaway.” Recently featured on ABC network’s hit show, “The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart,” The Hermitage Hotel welcomed three aspiring songwriter couples to chase their Nashville dreams and deepen their romance on the show’s finale, filmed throughout the hotel’s downtown Nashville location. Now, while Middle Tennessee gradually re-opens, locals can ease on down the road to find their own spark at The Hermitage Hotel and enjoy a staycation starting at $319/night, which includes:

  • Spacious and luxurious room or suite
  • A warm welcome of a dozen yellow roses
  • $50 daily dining credit from Capitol Grille and Oak Bar for in-room dining
  • Complimentary valet parking
  • A custom hotel-scented candle and a soothing bath concierge experience for unwinding in the guestroom’s deep soaking tubs

“Throughout its history, The Hermitage Hotel has always been a haven for the Nashville community,” said Dee Patel, Managing Director of The Hermitage Hotel. “These are challenging times, so we are pleased to invite locals to experience the best of Southern hospitality with familiar faces. Our team is thrilled to welcome our friends and neighbors to The Hermitage Hotel for a rejuvenating stay in their own backyard.”

Couples can take a break from the kitchen and turn the reins over to the talented team at The Hermitage Hotel. Order an expansive spread to relish in-room with customized music and viewing options, orchestrate a special seating in the hotel’s opulent lobby or return to dine in the beloved Capitol Grille, with limited and appropriately distanced seating. Set to unveil the Spring menu later this month, Chef Derek Brooks utilizes local produce cultivated at the hotel’s two-acre heirloom period garden located just 15 minutes from the hotel in dishes such as the signature sweet onion bisque with lardons, garlic chive and a brie sandwich and the show-stopping hot chicken confit, served with turnip greens and mashed potatoes.

While luxuriating in one of Nashville’s most spacious hotel rooms, guests can enjoy the hotel’s newly upgraded entertainment system and stream some of Nashville’s hottest events, from songwriter sessions at the Country Music Hall of Fame to history lectures at the Tennessee State Museum.

Guests can also tune in to curated Spotify playlists to wake-up in the morning, wind-down in the evening, or set the mood for an in-room dining experience or visit from the bath concierge, which can be upgraded to include a bottle of bubbly and fragrant rose petals. For simpler pleasures, reserve one of picturesque mezzanine chess tables with a sweeping view of the lobby to play games and sip cocktails from the iconic Oak Bar.

For over a century, The Hermitage Hotel has been the gold standard for luxury and service in Nashville, and the hotel remains committed to providing a clean and safe environment. Visitors to the hotel can expect social distancing, the use of masks, increased frequency of high-level cleaning standards and thoughtful, low-touch adjustments to the hotel’s signature intuitive service. Over the past six weeks, enhancements have been made hotel-wide with updated décor and revisiting communal seating areas to ensure there is space to socially distance. The hotel has also continued its legacy of community servitude by providing several thousand prepared meals for local churches, community centers as well as metro Nashville’s first responders.
