This hotel is right around the corner from Broadway, where there are many joints playing live music almost anytime of day. It is across the street from Bridgestone Arena and just 2 blocks from the Country Music Hall of Fame. Aside from cowboy boot shops and an American Apparel, though, there are no places to shop within walking distance. Though close to the action, the hotel is quiet. My room was clean with a very comfortable bed and down comforter. There is a shuttle that runs from the Nashville airport to the hotel, which was convenient. There is a nice, spacious hotel bar with contemporary decor and a Starbucks in the lobby.
