As a hotel, The Hilton Garden Inn Nashville/Vanderbilt is just what you'd expect from Hilton. Where this hotel excels is with its staff. At most hotels, visitors probably couldn't provide you with the name of one staff member let alone three. My husband and I were so impressed by the service we received in the bar from both Edward and Geoffrey and the shuttle drivers especially Larry. Not only did they make an impression on us but when talking with other visitors found them equally as impressed. If you are looking for a hotel both convenient to Vanderbilt and downtown Nashville this place fits the bill and has a staff that will make you want to us this hotel again so you can see them again. They feel like friends.
