CMA Awards
Nashville, TN . November 2024

There are a lot of hotels in Nashville. Why do you use the Noelle?

Frequently Asked Questions - CMA Awards

Located in one of the most famous music districts in the city, the recently renovated Noelle Hotel offers an authentic Nashville experience. Noelle is in the center of the downtown action, but insulated from light and noise. The emphasis on art, design, and local artists and designers will help you get to know Nashville.

Tucked inside a completely renovated 1930s building, isn’t your standard new-hotel-in-an-old-building. Rather, it doubles as an art experience. Local artists designed the space and the art, drawing on inspiration from notable Nashvillians.

There are also several food and drink outlets in the Noelle. The lobby’s Drug Store coffee counter is run by the people who operate the Barista Parlor shops, a Nashville mainstay in the coffee world. Also on site are the Makeready Libations & Liberation, The Rare Bird rooftop deck, Trade Room, the open lobby bar, and Hidden Bar are all gathering places for guests and locals.
