The Harpeth Hotel, Curio Collection by Hilton, managed by Valor Hospitality Partners, announced its official opening today in the heart of historic downtown Franklin. As the town's first boutique hotel, The Harpeth Hotel pairs modern-day comfort and timeless charm, offering spacious guest rooms and suites, upscale amenities, two unique dining venues, and thoughtful design with subtle nods to Franklin's rich history.

The Harpeth Hotel boasts 119 elegant guest rooms, including a vast range of room types for the curious and experience-driven traveler. Rooms and suites include lavish bathrooms with oversized showers and tubs, in-room Keurigs, modern technology and Frette robes and slippers. Guest rooms mimic a traditional Southern home, with features such as mudroom entryways, expansive bathroom vanities, herringbone and chevron patterns and local artwork. All rooms and suites are pet-friendly and include a welcome pet amenity.

In addition to stylish accommodations, The Harpeth Hotel introduces two new dining venues to Franklin's culinary scene. Both hotel guests and locals can dine at 1799 Kitchen and Cocktails, an upscale restaurant serving Southern-influenced contemporary cuisine with a private dining room overlooking the courtyard. Completing the space is a full-service bar with a heavy focus on handpicked bourbon, rye and American whiskeys, as well as handcrafted cocktails. 1799 will also host a weekend brunch with expanded offerings and live entertainment. For a more casual dining experience, McGavock's Coffee Bar & Provisions, named after a distinguished Middle Tennessee family that resided in Carnton during the Civil War, is a European-style cafe featuring meticulously roasted offerings from Franklin's own Honest Coffee Roasters, as well as a variety of specialty breakfast and lunch items from Franklin's local purveyors. McGavock's Coffee Bar & Provisions serves a handpicked selection of beer and wine, in addition to seasonal craft cocktails.

The Harpeth Hotel is the ideal destination for weddings, corporate events and social gatherings with more than 5,000 square feet of flexible meeting space with abundant natural light, including the Riverside Ballroom and tech-forward Maury Boardroom. The hotel also offers a beautiful courtyard with a grand staircase and picturesque fountains for wedding receptions, galas and corporate events.

The hotel is complete with a special whiskey keep that guests and locals can utilize after a day exploring the Tennessee Whiskey Trail, as well as a library with a cozy fireplace and a wide range of Franklin and Civil War themed books curated by Landmark Booksellers.
