I absolutely LOVED the Union Station hotel. I had booked this hotel before looking at reviews and some weren't too pleasing to read...many people remarked on the loud sounds of the bypassing trains or unclean rooms or a cold staff. I found these remarks to be completely wrong in my case. Upon arrival, the valet parkers were extraordinarily friendly and helpful to us (valet parking is $24 a day, but if one knows ahead of time, it's not much of a shock...but it is worth it. I promise.) They carried all of our bags and parked our car. When you choose valet parking, you can retrieve your car at any time and it doesn't cost more to re-park it. Anyway, the staff was extremely hospitable upon arrival and the hotel lobby was truly a grand view and sight. The architecture was exquisite and superbly clean on all accounts, and the people working the front desk were cordial and amiable. We called earlier to request a room non-trainside, and they managed to get a beautiful one for us! However, Nashville is not a huge train city (only a few trains passed the whole weekend we were there and never sounded their horns). The room was large and spacious and everything was very modern and clean, but still retained the charm of a 4 star luxury and historic hotel. The room service was also very prompt and friendly. The food was from a lovely restaurant in the hotel called Prime 108. It was a bit pricey but delicious and hot nonetheless. In the morning following our arrival, there was renovation and restoration being done to the windows so we were abrubtly awakened and it was quite unpleasant. When we voiced this to the staff, they profusely apologized and told us that the workers were finished on that side. And they were in fact...no harm done! But this hotel was fantastic because it was within walking distance of nearly everything in Nashville! Broadway is the main street for entertainment and dining, and Union Station was just a few short minutes away! Also, there is a lovely art museum right next store with a lovely cafe for lunch. Overall, our stay in the Union Station hotel was superb and I FULLY recommend it to anyone travelling to Nashville for business or pleasure, or just to experience its majestic and elegant charm.
