NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE PROPERTY EST. 1910 • NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES Opened in 1910, The Hermitage Hotel was Nashville’s first million-dollar hotel. Billed as “fire proof, noise proof, and dust proof,” the hotel served as the headquarters for the suffragette movement in 1920, when Tennessee cast the deciding ballot giving women the right to vote. Reopened after a $19 million renovation on Valentine’s Day 2003, The Hermitage showcases restored architectural details, and it is outfitted with 21st-century amenities to please the most discerning travelers. The hotel’s new grand foyer ushers guests into one of the most beautiful public rooms in America—the stunning lobby with its stained glass ceiling.
