The Cadence by WhyHotel is a top choice for those traveling with pets. They offer spacious studios and apartments with separate living rooms and kitchens, meaning your kitty has plenty of space to explore and run around.

The Cadence welcomes pets but charges a pet fee, starting from $150. While the cost is a little steep, we find it’s totally worth it if you’re staying in Nashville for a while. The huge apartment-style rooms ooze a homely feel. So, your fur child will feel much more at home here, as opposed to in a standard hotel room.

You can opt for a room with an enclosed balcony with wire fencing. However, if you choose a balcony room, be sure to keep the door closed as it’s not totally cat-proof. You’ll have access to the outdoor pool, fitness center, sun terrace, and lounge area with billiards tables. Check for availability here.
