Nicely located hotel central to downtown and Vanderbilt. Downtown is a little bit of a walk from here, and I’m not sure I’d make that walk in the dark, but the Vanderbilt area has dozens of restaurants and bars within walking distance and is a wonderful area to be in at night too.
The employee at check in, though a bit scripted for my taste, was very friendly and did a really good job explaining the hotel’s offerings and also explained the shuttle within a three mile radius offering to me. As a result, check in took about five minutes, but I appreciated her efforts.
This is a sort of odd hotel. It seems a bit simplistic. The room is more on par with a cleaner Extended Stay America room, not even close to the level of a Homewood Suites studio room. The furnishings in the room are very “modern” (translation: cheap). If you like lime green and yellow, you will love the colors here. Personally, I could go without the yellow but like the lime green. But the room was functional and I liked it well enough. As far as Hilton brands go, this is the most bare bones I’ve seen a Hilton brand. I really think some upgrades to the bedding, towels, and bath amenities (dispensers? no lotion? Really?) are in order. Also, I get the whole “green” theme in the hotel but some cups to take coffee out of the room would be nice (they have a very limited supply of take out cups in the lobby that you can take up to your room though). Also, given the “green” theme, why are there no recycling bins in the hotel room itself (Doubletrees have recycling bins in room)? Especially, given the practically ice bucket sized trash can. I walked plastic bottles out to the hallway recycling bin.
Also, given the “green” theme to the hotel, why is it that I cannot take the stairs between the room and the lobby? You can go down the stairs and then immediately be placed outside, but you cannot go up the stairs from the ground floor.
I feel as though the marketers are trying to make this brand seem “green” on the surface, but the attention to detail is just not there.
Parking is $20 extra and in a shared garage with the Hilton Garden Inn. Easy walk from room to parking.
