The welcome could not have been more sincere - Katelynne was exceptionally friendly and provided great direction on where to dine, drink and wind down after a tough day. The rooms are well appointed and super unique. As a traveler who spends about 200 nights a year in a hotel, this was a refreshing experience.

The last time I went to Bristol, I stayed at The Bristol Hotel and we decided to change up this time. The Sessions was still being built when I was in town the first time, so I decided to give it a go this one. We were not disappointed! I did the romance package, just because. No special occasion, I just decided to surprise my boyfriend with a weekend fishing trip. The room came with a bottle of champagne, a gift card to one choice of two local restaurants, and rose petals. There was also a super cute little wooden “do not disturb” sign shaped like a record. (I like the little extra details— especially ones that could make cute Christmas ornaments.) The staff was beyond kind and the rooms were extremely clean. They DEFINITELY did a great job with following CDC guidelines.

Pros:
•On-site parking
•Pet friendly, but doesn’t smell like dog
•Easily accesible
•Right in town- walking distance from everything (especially Blackbird Bakery)
•Rooftop restaurant
•Super cool spots for pictures!

Cons:
If I had to find a con, the floors in the bathroom a little slick when it gets wet, but they provide mats to prevent. So I dare you to find one.

We only stayed for one evening heading to another destination. Rooms are large and very stylish. Nice bathroom and they have a restaurant on site. The food at the restaurant was OK but most things are fried - gets lots of good reviews but we didn’t like it very much.

Thank you so much for your review. Glad to be your choice on travels. Southern Craft BBQ is mostly BBQ smoked onsite so it's definitely a specific food style. We hope you come back soon!

I stayed here back in November 2020 for just one night. This time I stayed 3 nights for my birthday. Hubby asked where I wanted to go for my birthday and I immediately said The Sessions. He fell in love with it as well. Love the area too. Southern Craft food is simply amazing and I actually crave the pulled pork when I'm not there. That was another main reason I wanted to go there again. Met the cleaning staff this time and they are all so friendly. They do an excellent job too. Saw one of the guys picking up the mattress to clean. How many hotels have staff that do that?? Katelynn at the front desk is so cool and friendly. I met her last time and was so happy to see she is still there. I met a new front desk clerk that was really knowledgeable and forgot to get his name! He was great too. Everyone there is so sweet. The property is really unique and beautiful. Mixing luxury with the original aspects of the buildings is just so cool and really works for this property. We explored the property and walked around outside looking at all the original things they kept. Even the walls, old doors, and hardware is neat to see. I took some of my records this time and borrowed a record player from them. They have reignited my love of vinyl. I went to some shops and bought more. Since being home I bought more and a new record player too. My old one is large and from my childhood. So now I'm listening to vinyl again and remembering my stay at The Sessions Hotel. It really does have my heart. We enjoyed State Street and all it has to offer. Be sure to check out the Birthplace of Country Music Museum even if you're not into country music. It's worth it. And be sure to eat at Burger Bar. Amazing food. Anytime I need another getaway weekend, The Sessions will be it for me. Next time I will stay in the Presidential Suite. It has a listening room! A nice cabinet style record player and a chair to relax in and put your feet up. Stay at this hotel. You'll he glad you did!! Get the breakfast bowl with the pulled pork at Southern Craft. Heavenly!!

I stay in alot of hotels due to work and having to do lots of travel. I booked this hotel for the first time with my husband and oldest son otw to drop my son off back at college after winter break. This is my most favorite hotel I've booked. I love old warehouse remodels and this is definitely full of character. It reminded me of the Moxy in downtown Nashville but way more space and character. It's walking distance to restaurants, museums, and the best antique stores. There is a roof top bar that was closed due to weather. I can't wait to go back once it warms up. I travel to this location often for work and this will be my go to hotel for now on! Katelynne checked us in. She was so friendly and helpful with where to eat. I loved her energy and it added to the experience of staying here. The room was specious, very unique, and very comfortable. I can't wait to come back!
