It’s time, to be honest; while most hotels offer amenities like Wi-Fi and large rooms, you will likely be stuck if you want a room with a theme. After all, luxury is a theme, but if you want something more, a standard city hotel won’t cut it!

So, if you want to stay in a hotel or at a resort where the room is the view, then themed hotels are the way to go. And if you are visiting Tennessee in 2023, these are five hotels you simply have to check out!
