An offshoot of its namesake James Beard Award–winning restaurant, the small 404 Hotel lets you live like a local in the heart of Nashville's hip the Gulch neighborhood. An emailed four-digit log-in replaces check-in and key cards, and while staff members are on site from noon until 8 p.m. daily, and on call 24/7, the experience here is more home rental with perks (housekeeping, parking, room service and more) than a conventional hotel stay. Design lovers, in particular, will feel at home among the monochrome palette, custom furnishings and original artwork by local photographer Caroline Allison, and there are plush amenities including Turkish towels and Sferra linens. Kick off a neighborhood crawl with the two complimentary cocktail vouchers to 404 Kitchen across the street, and don’t miss a 9 p.m. show at the legendary Station Inn and a late dinner or brunch at stylish Little Octopus.
