The Railroad Beginnings of Our Historic Nashville Hotel
Walking through the doors of Nashville’s historic Union Station Hotel is like taking a step back to a time when travel was not a necessity, but a luxury. Originally built in 1900, the building’s imposing Gothic design with its turrets and towers was a testament the US ingenuity and energy. Union Station was a marvel of the (then) modern day, surprising and delighting travelers for decades with ornate wood carvings, sparkling stained glass, beautiful Italian marble and soaring ceilings.
Fast forward nearly 100 years, and Union Station was in need of some new life and energy. In 1986 Union Station began its new life as a luxury hotel and fall 2016 saw the completion of a $15.5 million renovation that payed homage to the building’s rich history while re-invigorating it with luxurious modern touches that perfectly combine the history what Nashville has been and what the vibrancy of what Music City has become today.
The Union Station began its new life as a luxury boutique hotel in December 1986, and has just completed a booming $15.5 million dollar renovation perfectly infusing all that Nashville has always been...and what Music City is today. Boasting 125 uniquely decorated guest rooms and suites, Carter’s Bar and Restaurant and beautifully unique event spaces, Union Station is, once again, the most coveted address in Nashville.
