The Homewood Suites is a safe, solid bet for a hotel in downtown Nashville. The suite was clean and well-appointed, although being an atrium room did mean it was a little dark. All staff we encountered were friendly and helpful, from the breakfast manager to front desk staff and valet attendants. The location is fantastic, being completely walkable to all attractions in the downtown area. Previous reviews that say you have to take the shuttle to get to downtown are flat-out wrong (perhaps they meant to review the Homewood Suites Vanderbilt). One of the few drawbacks to this property is the self-parking situation. The garage is about two and half blocks away, making it a pain to walk uphill with luggage back to the hotel. And the linen service could use some improvement. The bath towels were frankly worn and stained. But overall this is a great bet for a Nashville home base.
