Downtown Nashville's hip Hotel Indigo will be showing off it's little $5 million facelift soon. February 8th heralds the opening of new restaurant, The District Bar & Kitchen, with 33 brand new guestrooms debuting a week later (upping the total count to 130). The other 97 rooms have also received a design & furnishings freshen-up.

Fans of the hotel's weekly music nights featuring up and coming local artists (which have been taking place despite the construction) must wait til March to tour the new ground floor lobby & event space.

According to the Nashville Business Journal, the redesign hearkens to the building's Printer's Alley history, "using letter block murals, a piano key awning over the concierge desk, and a speakeasy-style bar to tell the story of the neighborhood as a printing district in the 1800s, watering hole during Prohibition, and, now, an entertainment district where music legends are discovered."

Rates from $171 per night.

Room With a Killer View: Funky Downtown in Hilton Nashville

We are suckers for a room with a killer view.  We find that we are even more likely to forgive some minor hotel inconveniences if we can stare out the window at something pretty--yeah we are that shallow. Let's help out our fellow hotel mavens by uploading rooms with killer views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. We will feature our favorites in this space from time to time. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number of the hot view.

We've been staring at this killer view until our eyes have glazed over and we're still not sure if it's been photoshopped. Is that funky building on the right for real? The rest of the set from Flickr member paparutzi look 100% authentic, so perhaps this view from the Hilton Nashville is the real deal too, or at least only slightly touched up.

This city view was taken from the tenth floor of the Hilton, from Room 1003 to be precise. This hotel got the thumbs up not only for the view, but also for the location being just "one block from it all" ... and it helped that it was an amazing hotel on the otherwise roadtrip from hell.

No wonder it was good--the Hilton Nashville promotion unashamedly tells that it's the only hotel in "America's Friendliest City" that has all-luxury suites.

Average room rates are getting close to $300 but check for regular specials.
