The Fairlane, a luxury 81-room boutique hotel, has opened in downtown Nashville’s Arts District. Driven by the clean simplicity of mid-century architectural design, the Fairlane Hotel brings the style and personality of the 1960’s and 70’s back to Music City. The setting is complemented by classic food and beverage with Ellington’s Mid Way Bar & Grill, Mile End Delicatessen and Union Teller Coffee Counter.
Located off Broadway between Union and Church Streets in the Capitol and Arts District, the Fairlane Hotel is centrally situated near many notable Nashville attractions, including Ryman Auditorium, Riverfront Park, Schermerhorn Symphony Center and Bridgestone Arena. The hotel was concepted and developed by Oliver Hospitality and is managed by Charlestowne Hotels.
The Fairlane Hotel was inspired by the preeminent international style of the building’s original interior and exterior architecture as the Nashville headquarters of the now defunct Fidelity Federal Savings & Loan. Terrazzo flooring, original wood paneling and travertine columns, brass elements, interior plants, open floor plans, and a green, brown and crème color palette each are presented with a modern take on the prominent style of the 1960’s and 70’s.
At the Fairlane Hotel, guests will find some of the city’s largest standard size guestrooms, each complete with era-appropriate details. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide expansive exterior views of the surrounding cityscape, and semi-transparent peekaboo showers crafted from custom walnut paneling add a dramatic visual element to guestroom interiors.
“It was intrinsically important to create a space that is desirable to locals and travelers from both a design and amenity perspective,” said General Manager Ben Webster. “From the spacious guestrooms, to the widespread F&B offerings and out-of-the-box programming, the Fairlane Hotel will be the place for everyone in Nashville.”
A destination in itself, the 4,000-square foot Penthouse is reminiscent of a 70’s crash pad, the smoked mirrored ceilings are playfully suggestive, while those looking for discretion may take a private elevator. A wraparound terrace provides an outdoor escape, with a dedicated dining area and communal soft seating boasting unparalleled views. For guests who need to get down to business, two dedicated meeting spaces are available – the Business Room and Big Business Room.
The Fairlane Hotel’s is anchored by Union Teller Coffee Counter, where guests and locals alike can start their day with freshly-brewed Stumptown coffee and light bites, and Mile End Delicatessen, a Montreal-style (by way of Brooklyn) delicatessen and bar. The Delicatessen features many of the items made famous at Mile End’s popular NYC-based outposts, specializing in traditional cured and smoked Jewish Deli meats and house-baked bagels and breads, along with new offerings exclusively available at the Fairlane Hotel.
Ellington’s Mid Way Bar and Grill, the fourth-floor terrace restaurant, is the prime location for lunches, happy hours and casual dinners.
“Our goal is to combine genuine service with a playful attitude and consistently deliver that to each guest, whether they are stopping by for lunch or staying for a week,” Webster said. “The Fairlane Hotel embodies Nashville’s contagious energy and creative spirit and we invite everyone who walks through our doors to soak it all in and stay awhile.”
