Nashville

Fitness centers, outdoor pools and spas are common amenities at hotels these days, but want to know one of our favorite features offered? Live music! We’ve visited quite a few hotels that are a fun place to catch a show, whether you’re a guest or live in the surrounding area. From poolside DJ sets to soulful jazz in a cozy lounge, hotels give their guests a unique way to enjoy the city without leaving the grounds. If you’re someone who loves to kick back and enjoy live music, you’ll definitely want to bookmark these 10 hotels!

Ace Hotel and Swim Club, Palm Springs

Ace Hotel

This upper-middle-range, 180-room hipster haven has a palpable party vibe and frequent music nights with a live DJ. The style is retro, with 70s details such as record players and vinyl in the rooms. The property draws a young crowd and can get quite loud with its purposeful off-the-beaten-path vibe. Their Swim Club members get year-round access to the outdoor swimming hole, gym, spa and poolside happenings like their DJ events and the Reggae Sol party on the last Saturday of each month. Although it gets crowded, lounging by the pool while a DJ spins sounds like a fun way to spend the day to us!

Hotel Impossible host Anthony Melchiorri.

Last night, hotel guru Anthony Melchiorri took his Brooklyn roots down to the heart of the South — specifically to Fiddler’s Inn, located in Nashville, TN. And despite it being so close famed country music landmark, the Grand Ole Opry, Fiddler’s Inn was struggling for business — but thanks to the help of the Hotel Impossible crew, it’s now blossoming more than it ever has before. Find out what we loved the most about last night’s episode after the jump — besides a new-found love for country tunes, of course.

Santa may have thought you were nice this year, but there were probably a few things he didn’t see… So enter New Year’s resolutions — the pledges we make for the new year to atone for our sins of the year before. Maybe you told a few white lies, partied a little too hard, or claimed that Justin Bieber was your baby daddy (actually, we think that may have just been her). But that’s all in the past starting in 2012, the year that’s going to be the best ever! Not only have we started working on our own resolutions, but we’ve come up with a few for some hotels and their wild, raucous — and sometimes home-wrecking — guests. Below, check out our resolutions list that’ll set these hotels (and their notorious guests) on the straight and narrow.

For Lindsay Lohan at the Chateau Marmont (many, many times): Resist partying it up when you’re on probation.

Lindsay’s had some trouble with the law this year (and the year before that…and the year before that…). In November, she served a four-and-a-half-hour jail stint (better than the 30-day sentence!) for violating her probation. Yet only a couple of weeks later, this party girl was seen making an a.m. dash from the Chateau Marmont in the same outfit she wore the night before! Sources say she can often be spotted late-night at the hotel bar, where witnesses once saw her stumbling to the point of requiring assistance from hotel security. Hopefully she’ll be able to get together for 2012 — we miss the adorable Linds from The Parent Trap.
