The Kimpton Aertson Hotel creates a uniquely local and tailored experience for visitors, making them feel at home and connected to Nashville's rich history and culture. The design draws inspiration from the creative spirit of the city and the historical influence of the nearby Vanderbilt University campus. The Kimpton Aertson features a carefully curated mix of textures, materials, and unique spaces, which convey the rustic and eclectic charm of Nashville. Art plays a central role in the interior design, which includes a gallery-like space designed to display installations of curated pieces that fit into the hotel's overall energy. A natural palette with blue tones is paired with metal accents, and natural woods add a handcrafted feel.
