The largest hotel in Tennessee is the sprawling and gracious Opryland Hotel in Nashville. And at 2,881 rooms it's also the largest non-casino hotel in the country.

The tallest hotel in Tennessee is the Nashville Renaissance which I think is pretty ugly.

The only thing though is it's not. Over half of the tower is condos.

The Detroit Marriott RenCen and the Westin Peachtree in Atlanta are the tallest. Both designed by John Portman, both basically mirror images of each other.

Four Seasons

If the antenna on the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel was counted it would be 830 ft tall.

What's really funny is that this is John Portmans home town. I find it a little strange that he would design the Detroit tower a few feet taller than the Westin.

Interesting random factoid - he worked his way through college as an usher at the Georgian Theatre, which was torn down to build the Westin.

I could've sworn the tallest hotel in the US was the Four Seasons in Miami. I heard it was one of the tallest residential building in the US.

According to wikipedia the Detroit Marriott Hotel at RenCen is the tallest hotel in the USA.

It is polo, just not the tallest pure hotel tower. The condo's knock it out of this comparison.

The Hyatt Regency is the tallest hotel, but its pretty short, only 30 stories, I think.

The Hilton Americas is the largest hotel, with over 1200 rooms.

Ugh, both of Houston's and Dalla's tallest hotels are ugly, though.
