“Great cake, good margaritas, needs a spruce up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have stayed here twice while visiting relatives in Nashville.

The great: I love their signature red velvet cake. They also make a fine margarita
The good: Only ate at the restaurant once, everything other than the cake was good.
The not so good: Service in the restaurant was a little slow. The hotel common areas and stairwells (I take the stairs sometimes) need some work. Parking was a challenge one night on my second visit due to some group staying at the hotel. Otherwise no parking or traffic issues. Water pressure on the 11th floor varied a lot while showering. It seemed be both hot and cold so no temperature swings but still a bit annoying.

Other:
The fitness center is hoo hum, but my second visit I was able to go for a run around an adjacent residential area with lots of hills. And the price on my second trip was steep on the first night, again probably due to the group.

Room Tip: Get a room on an even numbered floor if you want easier access to ice machines. Go for odd number i...

We were headed to the airport and decided to go a day early. Chose this hotel for great location but ended up loving the hotel for so many more reasons. The staff was great. Everyone we met had a smile on their face and they were so pleasant. The accommodations were fantastic. The room was super clean and fresh. I would highly recommend this hotel and can't wait to stay their again.

I stayed here because it was close to airport and it was something different. I am used to staying at brand names and decided to give this hotel a try. Parking was good. Check in was fast and as other reviews mention this hotel is trying to be "hip" or "modern". Its not there yet but its not bad. The environment inside is red and black colored theme. Room was big enough with comfortable bed. We also had option to get fish tank or lava lamp in our room, which we thought was pretty cool. They also had pillow menu. Shower was great! In the evening I did go to their bar, where they had some musicians there, which was pretty cool. They have one pool table there(ofcourse you have to pay) which kept me busy. It was nice laid back place. I didn't try their restaurant or breakfast in morning so can't comment on that. Everything was good except I did like the fact of some type of techinal college being next to them. They almost share same parking lot. When I was checking out, that same time college had got finished, so all these people were speeding through parking lot. Pretty unsafe for guests with kids. This is not hotels problem but something they should look into.

Room Tip: Away from the elevator.

Hotel is trying to be "hip" with color and design, hallways dark, rugs need to be replace throughout the hotel, but the rooms were fine. I expected a lot of noise since it is close to the airport but there was only one plane in the morning that I heard. Bed was comfortable, room clean and bath products good.

Restaurant was fine, food was good and inexpensive...service good.

It has the opportunity to be a very chic hotel but probably needs better management and design. The worst part was the internet service is extremely slow but free.

My review will be straight and too the point, just like this hotel property. You sleep there. You will sleep well, but that's all you should plan to do there.

The bar is meh, the restaurant is meh, the rooms are pretty good, although the first room they put is in didn't have hot water.

Room Tip: rooms away from the elevators at this place!

Stayed one Saturday night Dec 15 at the Hotel Preston. We chose this property due to it's proximity to the airport. They also had a shuttle which took us to our flight and picked us up the following week. And, they let us leave our car parked there for the duration of our trip, which was very convenient. We liked the room, the furnishings and the bed and bathroom. It was a large room with two beds. Really the only problem we encountered is the noise. There were guests in nearby rooms who made for a miserable night. You know the types I'm sure: Loud talking in the hallway. Slamming doors, TV's up way too loud, kids running wild, in and out of the room many times. Yelling across the hall to travelling companions in adjacent rooms. I guess I should have called the front desk, but I don't like to complain. It actually wasn't the hotel's fault. Just stupid rude people with no consideration. It's just that you expect a little more courtesy in this type of hotel. Made for a pretty short night & a miserable experience as we had to arise at 3:30AM for an early flight. Other than that we enjoyed our stay and the convenience of the airport shuttle and parking, perhaps, made up for the lack of sleep.
