For travelers with disabilities visiting Music City, there are a number of wheelchair accessible hotel rooms in Nashville.
As a wheelchair user, I have personally stayed at only two hotels in Nashville, but found them both to be largely accessible. I have included information and pictures of those hotels here, and encourage you to share details of others where you have stayed in the comments below. Please note that this is not a complete list of accessible hotels in the city, only those which I have stayed in and verified.
Noelle Nashville, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel
Located just a few blocks away from the bars and restaurants on Broadway, Noelle, Nashville, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel is one of Music City’s most wheelchair accessible hotels. The hotel is thoughtfully designed, modern and accessible, and it is one of my favorite places to stay in downtown Nashville.
Accessible guest rooms have a roll-in shower with grab bars, an accessible toilet and plenty of space to move a wheelchair around in the room.

Gaylord Opryland Resort
Located just a short walk from the Grand Ole Opry, the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center is an upscale resort that first opened in 1977. The property has since undergone a number of renovations and features more than 3,000 guest rooms and suites.
Accessible guest rooms have a roll-in shower with grab bars, an accessible toilet and plenty of space to move a wheelchair around in the room. The roll-in shower (pictured above) was not ADA compliant, but I managed to use it nonetheless. My room had a balcony looking out over the atrium, which was wheelchair accessible.
Due to the enormous size of the resort, wheelchair users may have to travel long distances to reach their guest room. It was about a 10 minute journey to my own room, all indoors.
If you decide to stay at a hotel not listed here, be sure to ask questions about everything—door width, thresholds, shower/tub set-up, bed height, grab bars, shower chairs—to avoid a surprise when you arrive.
