We chose the Hampton Inn after a great experience at another Hampton Inn this summer and we were not disappointed. Only about a mile from downtown and very close to Vanderbilt, the location was great. The staff is super friendly and helpful. And they have a shuttle that takes you within a 2 mile radius in the afternoon/evenings. This was perfect to get us downtown and the shuttle driver was very friendly great at pointing out things to see and places to eat as this was our first visit to Nashville. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
