“Good room and friendly staff, but overpriced”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Positive: Friendly and professional staff very efficient at the front desk. Good location right next to Centennial Park.
Neutral: Some infrastructural repairs occurring while I was there. Odd tear in floorboard of first floor. One elevator broken with fans in it, presumably from water damage. Did not affect my stay, but also did not look super nice.
Negative: Above average expensive in price for what you get. Standard Hampton Inn quality but at higher than normal Hampton Inn prices.

The Hampton Inn on Elliston was the perfect location for our weekend getaway. The close proximity to points of interest in Nashville is an added bonus. Centennial Park, Vanderbilt and Music Row are within walking distance...as well as some of our favorite restaurants...P.F. Chang's, Outback, Maggiano's.The entire staff was very amicable and hospitable...the room was immaculate. Hope to return soon.

We stayed 2 nights (Sunday and Monday). Staff were very friendly and quick to offer assistance with everything and anything we needed. The free shuttle into town is very convenient but didnt operate on Sunday afternoon however we had a car so this wasnt a significant issue for us. Free parking was a big drawcard. The rooms are well appointed and clean although a little more light wouldnt go astray and the bathroom exhaust fan didn't cope well with warm showers. Best value for money I could find in such a convenient location

A couple of big events in Nashville shut us out of the downtown hotels, so I got a room at the Hampton Inn near Vanderbilt. Maybe it's just been a while since we stayed in a Hampster, but I don't remember them being this nice, The location is great - next to Vanderbilt, college town amenities, and Centennial Park. The park is a great place for an early run, and there's a nearby Starbucks at the end of it. The Hampster staff was incredibly courteous and helpful - all the front desk people were great, and the Breakfast Lady was inhumanly nice at 6 AM. Speaking of which, the breakfast was great - good variety (including fresh fruit). We're not too demanding restaurant-wise, and found some old favorites (Moes, PF Chang) within walking distance. Nonetheless my personal favorite was the meat-and-three right down the street, Rotiers is a bit of a greasy spoon I guess, but sometimes roast beef on white bread smothered in gravy is just the ticket. All-in-all a great weekend away at a nice hotel in a fun area. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Get a king room. It's pretty tight with two queens.

My husband and I had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The suite was very comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. We were within walking distance of several restaurants and shopping areas. We were within five minutes of the Vanderbilt Medical Center.

The outside of the hotel didn't impress - this is a Hampton Inn, after all - but everything else did! Samara - our friendly front desk person - was the consummate hostess, and she pointed out a great restaurant across the street for dinner. Breakfast was included and plenty filling (if not gourmet), while the proximity to Vanderbilt's admissions office (our destination the next morning) was the best you could get: about a 5-minute walk. Nearby is a park for running, complete with a replica of the Parthenon! Didn't see that coming ;)

I have been staying here quite a bit the last few months. I think it is one of my very favorite Hampton Inns. However, it is one the most expensive. I found that most hotels in this area are equally high priced. The facility is clean, new, with excellent staff. The king suites are just a like a one bedroom apartment, which is great if you are staying for several days. It is convenient to restaurants, and grocery stores. I wouldn't want to stay elsewhere. I am a Hilton brands fan, and believe this is nicer than some of the Embassy Suites I've stayed in!
