“Great for vanderbilt visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Perfect for visiting Vanderbilt. This is the one to choose. I have stayed in all the places around the campus, and this is the one. Only catch is the expensive parking, but there is no other good option on parking.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

If you're visiting Vanderbilt University, this hotel couldn't be more convenient. You're right next to the stadium and a short walk to most of the campus. On the other hand, the hotel charges $29/day to park your car...and there aren't any cheaper options around. If I'd known this, I'd have taken a taxi from the airport. The other quibble is that the air conditioning in our room didn't get rid of the humidity. It was 90 degree weather and, while we weren't exactly sweating, it was just damp. On the other hand, the staff was friendly and helpful, there's a big Starbuck's in the lobby (with regular Starbucks prices), and the beds are super-comfortable with down mattress toppers.

Thank you for ensuring we are aware of the humidity issues during your stay. This certainly is not standard and understanding how frustrating this inconvenience must have been. I will work with the engineering team to ensure this issue is not repeated in the future!

I have stayed at this location twice in the past year. The staff are wonderful and the rooms are very clean. Valet parking staff are very helpful when it comes to recommendation for attractions and food. I had breakfast downstairs and it was really good. I would recommend this hotel for anyone that may be traveling to Nashville.

The Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt is the best full- service Marriott property in the greater Nashville area. I had the pleasure of staying in one of the wonderful king suites. The bathroom was very spacious. The king bed was also very comfortable. The living area was spacious and nicely appointed. The Concierge Lounge was great. I really enjoyed the hot appetizers in the evening as well as the hot breakfast items in the morning. The hotel is nicely appointed and elegant. Special thanks to Steve Sines, General Manager, and Adam Henderson, Front Desk Manager. Jim Steers, Revenue Manager, was also very kind and accommodating. Scott Ferguson, Front Desk Supervisor. was very kind to us during checkout. Gail Bryant in the Concierge Lounge was kind and helpful. Jevon, Brittany, and Taylor at the Front Desk was also very helpful. I had a wonderful stay at the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt.

Room Tip: The Concierge Lounge is very nice.

Me: Marriott Platinum Medallion of many years, average hotel stay one night, travel throughout the country.

This hotel, IMO: Above average Marriott. Clean, quiet, nice Concierge Lounge, very good staff.

Be Aware: There appears to only be valet parking, and it's expensive. For those not on an expense account, be prepared. It's not something I'd expect at a hotel in Nashville.

Thank you for choosing the Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt. I trust this feedback will be helpful to others when choosing where to stay in Nashville. Our parking arrangements are a bit unique due to the fact we don't own the parking structure itself. We do offer both Valet and Self options with no additional charge for the Valet service itself. Again, thank you for your feedback!

A nice hotel with a great view of the Vanderbilt football stadium from many rooms. Parking is expensive and a bit of a walk with luggage. (Also got stuck while trying to leave the parking garage because the card reader wasn't reading our room key for in/out privileges.) Close to Rotier's and the Barnes & Noble that is the official Vanderbilt bookstore. Was chastised by a manager in the hotel restaurant because we had a doggie bag from an upscale restaurant and asked for a plastic fork. We may stay here in the future, but more because of the location than anything else.

This Marriott is everything you would expect from the brand. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful with information about Nashville. Price was a little higher than I would have expected but it was a busy weekend with 4 different wedding parties and the University of Alabama baseball team staying there. Our room overlooked Vanderbilt's football stadium.
