I like to stay in room 530 in the converted Union Station — it's one of the rooms under the arches in the photo below. But Wyndham has bought the hotel and is remodeling it, so the hotel was full when I tried to get a good walk-in rate.
If you're interested in new traditional architecture, visit Robert Stern's Nashville Public Library, and David Schwarz's Schermerhorn Symphony Center. The library sits at one end of Nashville's War Memorial Plaza, opposite William Strickland's wonderful state capitol building. To the side is McKim, Mead & White's War Memorial building, one of their best buildings, but not one of their best known.

If you're still there, also check out Strickland's Egyptian Revival Presbyterian Church (1851) at the corner of Church and 5th, I believe.
