Dodging the RoadkillNashville, Tn — Recently I had the opportunity to stay at one of Nashville’s finest hotels.  Hotel Indigo. There are two of them in Nashville and this one is located in the heart of downtown, on Union Street.

My wife and I were going to the NHL Stanley Cup Playoff game featuring our beloved Nashville Predators and the much hated Chicago Blackhawks. (apologies to Chicago fans, but Nashville is our team).  With an 8:30 puck drop, it was necessary for us to stay over instead of the late night drive home.

We’ve stayed at this facility before, and even though it’s not where most traveling “bikers” look to stay, I think it’s important to share my experiences because after all, we all need to treat ourselves every now and again.

Hotel Indigo overlooks the legendary Printer’s Alley and is convenient to most everything that IS Nashville.  Originally a bank, the facility reflects on it’s origins, with original travertine floors in many of the rooms.

The lobby features it’s own library and lounge that featurs local artists and songwriters seven nights a week.  The restaurant features breakfast, lunch and dinner.  There are also meeting rooms for receptions, or business meetings.

You’re within walking distance to the Ryman Auditorium, Country Music Hall of Fame, Johnny Cash Museum, Bridgestone Arena, Tennessee Performing Arts Center and a variety of eateries, honky tonks and venues.

The room itself was beautiful.  High ceilings, and windows, with great views of the sprawling downtown.  The bathroom was huge, with a giant walk-in shower and all of the bath essentials you could ever need.

Complimentary bottles of water, and a stocked coffee bar greet you when you arrive.  The beds are very comfortable, and are topped with pillows, pillows, and more pillows.

The staff is very friendly, although I found the valet’s not as excited to see me as I would have liked, but that was a minor thing.

We did not park at the facility because I was NOT going to pay the $31 + tax parking fee.  Separate parking is not hard to find, and you can always take an Uber to the hotel and still not pay that kind of money.

All in all, we had a great experience and would definitely stay here again.
