“Excellent Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

I had a great stay at this hotel. I was in town for a friends birthday and chose the hotel for its price and location. The staff was extremelty helpful and friendly. They allowed me into my friends room before she arrived to decorate it a little. The rooms were a nice size and clean as was the bathroom. Water pressure in the shower was good. The shuttle was convienent for getting to/from downtown. Centennial Park is directly across from the hotel, so I was able to go for a nice walk every morning to get my day started. Vanderbilt's football stadium is directly behind the hotel, and I was told that during football season they close the hotel parking lot for tailgaiting. (If you're staying here during football season you might want to ask about that.) Overall we had a great stay. If I'm ever in Nashville again I will definitely be staying here.

Amazing location and great energy in that hotel! When we got to the hotel we soon realized that there was going to be a party going on all night on our floor. We went downstairs to ask to switch rooms. The woman at the desk didnt hesitate for a second to switch us and gave us free breakfast vouchers for the next morning. We enjoyed our stay and the location was perfect.

The Holiday Inn Vanderbilt is a solid four star stay with clean rooms, a great location and excellent staff. Sam at the front desk was triple eight and the courteous professional manner with which she checked us in got us off to a great start at this hotel. Rest of the staff (this hotel's best asset) were also good. You can tell it's an older hotel that has been made over reasonably well and we would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at this location for over a month on business. Great location close to downtown and many restaurants. Always something happening in the evening in the hotel restaurant, live entertainment. Staff are friendly and helpful. Will stay again.

Room Tip: try to get a room facing West Ave on an upper floor.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Nashville in early March for a business trip. My room was clean and comfortable but the best thing about the hotel was the staff. They were very friendly and helpful (and professional). I needed their help with directions a couple times and they could not have been nicer! I also like that on Monday night they had music in the restaurant bar, it lent a really festive mood to the hotel. I will stay here again the next time I'm in town.

I recently made an unexpected trip to Nashville due to a loved one being admitted to St. Thomas Hospital. My mom and I made the decision to stay near the hospital so we could get back to the hospital early and try not to miss the doctors doing rounds. We arrived at the hotel at 9:30pm without a reservation. The front desk advised us they did have a room, but king bed only. We were too tired to care. They asked us what brought us to town, and we told them about my stepfather being at St. Thomas. They immediately offered us a discount! The staff was very caring and compassionate. We did this again on the third night of my stepdad's stay and was again treated with respect, and made us feel welcome. The rooms were standard. Nothing luxurious, but then I wasn't on vacation. The hotel caters to business travelers, college students, and relatives of people who are in one of the three big hospitals near by. There is a restaurant/bar with live music in the hotel. It's in a great location with many restaurants close by, several within walking distance. The two different nights we stayed here made a difficult, stressful situation a little easier.

Room Tip: The double rooms have a bit more space, but smaller bathroom than the king rooms. Either side of th...

I stayed here for a couple of nights on a business trip. The staff was very friendly and courteous. My room furnishings were older, but still clean and comfortable. I was within walking distance of Starbucks and lots of other restaurants. There was a nice coffee bar in the lobby of the hotel that had plenty of options too. Overall it was a pleasant stay.
