When representing my furniture protection product in Nashville, I always stay at the Gaylord Opryland Resort. It is my favorite place to stay because it has it all. Great spa and fitness center, close to local golfing and great dining.
Gaylord Opryland, the flagship property of our Gaylord Hotels family. On the banks of the Cumberland River, our landmark Nashville hotel is just minutes from Nashville International Airport and a short drive or riverboat cruise from downtown Nashville. Underneath our climate-controlled signature glass atriums, you’ll discover our nine acres of indoor gardens, cascading waterfalls and indoor river with our very own Delta flatboat.
Because of Nashville’s affluence, the high-end furnishings abound that, of course, require fabric protection. The interior designers in Nashville prefer Ultra-Guard as their choice in Fabric Protection because it’s a onetime application.
Discover the attractions of Nashville at your own speed on the hop-on hop-off trolley bus tour. Forget about driving or parking the car: Just sit back and relax and get off and explore at any of the 15 stops. A great way to see Nashville.
Stain Protection is often referred by the commercial designers who furnish the famous plantations to assure the tourists don’t soil the beautiful fabrics with drinks or food.
One of my favorite tours is the Belle Meade Plantation. Travel back in time with a 6.5-hour tour of 3 of Nashville’s most historic mansions. Discover the history of Belle Meade Plantation and enjoy a wine tasting. Head over to the Cheekwood Estate to explore the beautiful botanical gardens and art collections.
Stain Protection application prior to sitting on their beautiful furnishings is very important. The furniture protection formula dries very quickly to the touch and one is able to sit on the furniture protected in 6 to 7 hours. The fabric protection formula resists spots and spills, beading up to allow a quick blot with a clean dry cloth.
Like much of the South, Nashville experiences a humid subtropical climate, but its altitude makes the city slightly cooler than other parts of the region. During the summer, temperatures hover in the mid-to-high 80s while winters are decidedly mild and feature temperatures in the mid-40s to low 50s. With all that in mind, the best time of year to visit Nashville is during the spring (though not if you have severe seasonal allergies) or fall, when the weather is comfortable, and humidity is less bothersome.
Fabric Protection is often required in Nashville hotels for the stain guarding of the lobby furniture and the convention room chairs. Stain Guard is essential for these areas.
Nashville’s live music scene is legendary and not to be missed. If you’re more of the plan-ahead type you can nab tickets to a show at The Bluebird Cafe or patiently wait in line for some bluegrass at The Station Inn, but you can also drop in to see who’s playing anywhere along lower Broadway at the city’s famous honky-tonks. Sure, it’s touristy, but it’s also part of Nashville history. My recommendations? Robert’s Western World always has a laid-back vibe and Miller High Life for $2.50 a pop, while Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge where early Opry stars would sneak out the backstage door of the Ryman Auditorium and pop across the alley for a drink in between shows.
Most Design showrooms in Nashville recommend Ultra-Guard fabric protection for their textiles. Stain Protection is sometimes applied before it leaves the store and sometimes, they just recommend to their home furnishing clientele to call Ultra-Guard to have it applied to furniture in their homes. Then they can sit on their fabric protected sofa and chairs and walk on their protected rugs without worry.
