I travel often for work and leisure, and I have to say Hampton Inns are my favorite hotels. This Hampton was wonderful; great location and walking distance to many restaurants and stores, near a huge park and Vanderbilt University which is also great for walking. The pool looked really nice although I did not use it, but several guests were. Breakfast was very good and had a lot of good options. Staff was incredibly friendly and the room was clean...and most importantly, the bed was comfortable! I would stay here again -- downtown Nashville is nice, but this is a little quieter and in a very nice and safe area. The only thing I wish they had was a shuttle -- maybe they could consider sharing a shuttle with other area hotels?
