I travel a lot. A REAL lot. I  have been from point A to point Z and everywhere in between! Throughout my travels I have developed a deep fondness for certain destinations. Destinations I return to over and over again and Nashville, TN is one of them!

IMG_7316Yes, Nashville is located in what is known as the south’s “bible belt” but I am happy to report that Nashville has a thriving LGBT community with exciting nightlife and plenty of gay-friendly establishments, such as — Hotel Indigo Nashville Downtown Hotel.

02.22.13 Hotel Indigo Nashville Property ShootEverything about the Hotel Indigo Nashville oozes style and southern charm.

"VFMLID=54194900"My wife Jennifer and I were impressed from the moment we stepped inside the printer themed lobby (hotel is located in a restored printing press building).

The hotel is trendy without being pretentious.

IMG_7463I loved the wood decor mixed with bold purples and reds.

IMG_7466I loved the lobby lounge, with it’s comfortable seats, perfect for people watching and mapping out your day’s excursions. 

VFMLID=59434863I loved the hotel’s onsite restaurant/bar/lounge – The District Bar & Kitchen. The food and drinks were reasonably priced and very good, however, the best part was the live music!



IMG_7308We saw some fantastic local musicians playing and loved the intimate location. Live music is Monday-Saturday from 7 pm – 10 pm.

Another great feature about Hotel Indigo Nashville is that it is walking distance to all of downtown Nashville’s top attractions and famous Printer’s Alley.


IMG_7319The hotel really does have it ALL!

Upon arrival we were greeted by the charismatic bellhop, Shane. This handsome young man took great care of Jennifer and I during out stay, providing helpful tips on what to see and do.

IMG_7259As for the room — we LOVED it! Shane told us that our room was one of the newly remodeled rooms.



IMG_7266It was sleek, yet comfortable with soft lighting, a beautiful bathroom and super comfortable bed.

Knowing it was my birthday, the hotel surprised me with a little welcome gift. How cool is that?

GAY & LESBIAN TRAVEL FACTOR: Nashville is one of the deep South’s most gay friendly destinations. You will find a wide selection of LGBT nightlife options as well as an unlimited amount of gay friendly establishments. Some helpful links include: and Mine and Jennifer’s stay at Hotel Indigo Nashville was flawless.

945546_10200782957510094_1206906737_nWe encountered nothing by friendly service from the moment we checked in, until check-out. Gay Travel Information was eagerly welcome by the hotel manager. This is truly a property where individuality is not only welcome, but encouraged. The Hotel Indigo brand as a whole seems to have caught the attention of the gay market and actively promotes several of their properties on popular gay web sites, including Hotel Indigo Chicago, which is one of our featured advertisers.


Also, InterContinental Hotels Group, which runs the Hotel Indigo brand, received a score of 90% on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index. The score is based on a company having implemented non-discrimination policies, sexual orientation training, domestic partner health insurance, and company-supported LGBT employee resource groups. I personally “OUT” Hotel Indigo Nashville at LGBT friendly and worthy of our business. 

IMG_7318Nashville woos you with it’s party atmosphere! Whether you are two-stepping at some rocking honky-tonk, catching a live concert, dining at one of the areas delicious restaurants or dancing the night away at a gay nightclub….it will never be enough time. You will return. Trust me! 😉
