A Hip Nashville Hotel Puts a Fresh Spin On Southern Hospitality

The 404 Hotel, Nashville (Via Design*Sponge)

If you’ve been looking for any more reasons to visit the cultural hotspot that is Nashville, Tennessee, we’ve got a great one for you: the newly-opened, stunningly designed 404 Hotel. Located in the city’s industrial Gulch neighborhood, The 404 boasts luxe amenities, stylishly appointed rooms, and—to top it off—a James Beard nominated restaurant. Following the guidance of lead architect Nick Dryden, The 404’s aesthetic is one that combines timeless modernity with a tangible sense of history. The hotel itself is located in a retired mechanics garage, its rooms paying due reverence to the building’s industrial roots: king-sized beds and modernist furniture are paired with exposed timber and steel trusses, marble countertops with concrete floors. The restaurant, housed in a repurposed shipping container, takes this industrial juxtaposition to an entirely different level—exposed wood and corrugated metal mingle alongside chef  Matt Bolus’ neo-European cuisine. In internet parlance, the term “404” typically denotes an error, but The 404 hotel, with its charming mix of old and new, is anything but. Continue after the jump for more photos! —Max

I love the casual vibe going on at this boutique. The design elements; what I call: HOTELements! I am especially digging…the pop of orange, the awesome barn door, and an overarching mid-century inspired floor lamp is always a cool touch. Thanks for the introduction to the 404!

I am a Nashville transplant and The Kitchen 404 is our new favorite! Food and drink is inventive, delicious, and brings a restaurant worthy to be considered as one of NYC’s finest to the neighborhood. Staff are fun and friendly too!
