Set in busy and bustling Midtown Nashville, the State Street Hotel — part of the Sonder hospitality brand — offers a breezy, bright respite in the center of the city. Powell Architecture + Building Studio reinvented an existing apartment building into this 14-room boutique hotel, bringing a harmonious home-away-from-home energy to its studios, suites and exterior spaces. Inside, playful colors and clean, midcentury-style lines define the living areas, playing off light and sleek kitchenettes and baths; outside, a full bocce court, firepit and lounge, all set amid private green space, give guests a chance to wind down, in style.
