This hotel is about 15 minutes from downtown and was very nice, quiet and clean. Great beds too. The free breakfast and $25.00 roundtrip shuttle downtown was really convenient. This hotel is across from Opryland and Opry Mills, which you could walk to if you wanted to get a bit of exercise in. Personally, there isn't a lot to pick from food wise on this side of town, but that's just my experience. Overall, great hotel to stay at.
