“Nice hotel, good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

The hotel is across the street from the Parthenon and within walking distance to Vanderbilt University. There is a shuttle that will take you within a 3 mile radius including downtown to all the bars/restaurants that have excellent live music.

So well located to Vanderbilt's campus. Just minutes from Broadway, the heart of the downtown music/bar scene, and the hotel runs a free shuttle every 15-30 minutes, so there's no worry about parking. The staff was helpful. The room was very comfortable. We really enjoyed out stay.

The hotel has a convenient location if you need to be close to the Vanderbilt campus. If you plan this hotel as part of your visit to Nashville it can be a little far though they have a shuttle service. After stayed there I feel like it´s a little pricy if I compare with other hotels I stayed before.
The pool can be busy and noisy when it´s hot outside so keep this in mind and ask for a high floor room.
I agree with all the other reviewers that complain about the cafeteria hours. I had to wait a long lane to get a coffee and finally I went to Starbucks which is around the corner and has better store hours. Also, no coffee in the lobby was disappointing and unexpected; almost every motel has that at anytime!
The rooms were comfortable and clean. Those that face the Vanderbilt Stadium have a very little balcony, nothing to do with those that face the main street.
Next time I´ll look for another option.

This hotel is located a mile from Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. The staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. The carpet was stained some, but it is a hotel. Also, the rooms were very narrow. The beds were comfortable, and there was a microwave and mini-fridge in our room. My husband and I booked the single king size bed, and there was a sofa and coffee table in our room as well.

We enjoyed our stay here - the rooms were spacious, with a mini-fridge and microwave. I did feel that the bar and restaurant hours were much too short and inconvenient. Weekend breakfasts especially did not go late enough. Also I have gotten used to having coffee available in the lounge/reception area in most hotels and there was nothing available here. Of course there were coffee pots and supplies in the room, but if you wake up early and want to go out of your room so as not to disturb anyone else in there, you cannot get anything complimentary downstairs. So if the bar/restaurant is not open, you have to leave the facility to find anything.

I have a high opinion of the Holiday Inn line of hotels, and this is one of the best. They are currently undergoing an extensive renovation, but they do an exceptional job keeping the mess and distraction hidden. The staff is incredibly helpful and kind (of course, I'm a native Tennessean and am biased), and the accommodations are extraordinary. The morning breakfast bar was well done, the pool was refreshing, and the location was incredible. Just across the street is beautiful Centennial Park, and the hotel is about 0.8 mile from the downtown entertainment district. Onsite parking is free, and the hotel offers a courtesy shuttle that will take you downtown and back, so you can go out, have a good time, and get back to the room safely. This is a great place, very affordable, and conveniently located.

This hotel sits in the parking lot of the Vanderbilt stadium. It was so nice to park our car so close to the stadium and walk everywhere we needed to for a gameday. The hotel is older but was very clean and has balconies on every room. It was very quiet and the beds were comfortable. The restaurant and bar closed too early for post game celebrating but the Marriott is next door and they stay open late. I would stay here again if the price was right.
