It was our first time to Nashville, TN - and we loved it. As a Holiday Inn Platinum member, we were pleasantly surprised to get free breakfast tickets and free wine vouchers redeemable at the restaurant for our entire 4-day stay. Kudos to Irene at the front desk for hooking that up for us! We usually stay at HI Express hotel whenever we travel for fun because they give you free breakfast...so the free food was a nice perk that stands out as *the* deciding factor that would make me choose this hotel (Holiday Inn) again over an Express if and when I had to return to the Nashville area.
Speaking of breakfast... Erin - our server in the restaurant - was awesome! The breakfast set-up is buffet-style, so she wasn't like an actual waitress who took our order. Iinstead, she made sure we had everything we needed in terms of drinks for the kids, and table condiments when we came down each morning to dine. Her attention to detail, speed of service, and enthusiastic demeanor absolutely made our morning each day we ate at the hotel's restaurant. When your server remembers things like your kids' names, the fact that I like sweet tea WITHOUT ice, and that my wife likes THREE creams in her coffee...it makes a real impression. Erin consistently delivered 5-start service to us, and made us feel like we were her only customers.. although she was busy assisting other guests as well. If you want to have a stay to remember, ask to sit in her section.
I was a little curious about the hotel's pool/hot tub set up at first. The pool area is an open-air space which borders the hotel's dining room; so as long as you're comfortable with a potential audience of restaurant patrons watching you swim - you should fine. My wife and two kids took a swim and after a few minutes, I didn't even notice people at the bar sitting just 15 feet from the kiddie pool.
While we were there, the hotel upgraded it business center - which was open all the time. They put new flat screens for the monitor, which made the experience of searching the internet more visually appealing. However, they require that you e-mail the front desk administrator any documents that you want to print, so that they can print them for you. I'd prefer that their business center go full service and allow guests to print their own docs.
Overall - we loved our stay. I have a theory that when traveling to a city for first time on a leisure trip - if you have a story to tell about the hotel you stayed in, its probably going to be bad...Not the case here. Quite the opposite at the Holiday Inn Nashville Opryland.
