I booked this hotel because it was the cheapest place close to the downtown area. My wife and I were in town for a concert at the Ryman and wanted to be able to walk everywhere. After booking I read a lot of reviews complaining about the quality of the hotel and several other features. The building is incredibly old and has been renovated, some people complained about the old building which made no sense to me. My wife and I really liked that part. People complained about noise, breakfast, and the homeless people outside. For our entire stay I can honestly say we didn't hear one noise outside of our room. The breakfast was all out on time and everything that my wife and I had was exactly what we would expect from a free continental breakfast. As for the homeless people and not feeling safe, I am from Atlanta so I could be much more used to this type of thing, but the people in Nashville were neither scary nor did they bug us much for money. The only true complaint I have is that the fitness center is really lacking in equipment. One treadmill (that was out of order), one bike, and one elliptical machine. A couple of mats and some medicine balls. This is the only are I think they could live with upgrading. Overall it was a great stay and my wife and I would definitely stay here again.
