While the underbelly of Nashville’s 21c Museum Hotel comprises 10,500-square-feet of thought-provoking art exhibitions, upstairs you’ll find a fully immersive artsy experience. Three of the hotel’s suites double as dreamy site-specific installations—painter Sebastiaan Bremer’s Sanctuary 21c, for example, is outfitted with both recording studio and visual arts studio (the other two suites were designed by actor Adrian Grenier and digital artist Yung Jake). Meanwhile, the Spa at 21c offers individual and made-for-two treatments that can also be done in the privacy of your room.
