After we had dinner, we walked through the older part of the hotel called The Observatory. We walked around on the second floor looking at the many hanging decorations.
This is a balcony where groups play but no one was playing when we came strolling through.
There were all kinds of hot air balloons hanging up at different heights.

Scattered among the balloons were large stuffed animals each with a musical instrument hanging around his neck.
We went down to the first floor where the original lobby was and it was decorated beautifully.
The original chandelier was still hanging and both Prince and I remember it from years ago.
The kitty justice if you are in Nashville no matter what time of year you should schedule one day for just walking around this wonderful hotel.
I think they did a great job in getting the hotel repaired from the flood. At some points ten feet of water was standing especially in the newer parts shown in previous post.

When I saw the first picture...I thought...that looks like the opreyland hotel....and then the stairs and I knew for sure. Have been there and it is indeed beatiful but I think Christmas made it magical.

Beautiful pics. Someday I may get there.
The flood was a tragedy but the whole world heard how the town pulled together and and returned the town to maybe a better town. MB
