NASHVILLE, TN (June 2, 2017) – Kimpton Hotels & Restaurantsannounces 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. 

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 approachable luxury level of customer care. Aertson juxtaposes that authentic yet accommodating service against a compelling contemporary arts program throughout. 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. “Our guests will be treated like family from the moment they arrive, welcomed with a genuine smile and 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.
