We stayed 2 nights at the Doubletree Nashville-Downtown in August, 2013 for a 3-day sightseeing weekend. The hotel itself combined with a convenient location made it a great place to stay for tourists and we'd happily stay again.
We checked in around 5:30 in the evening on a Saturday without a line. The clerk at the front desk was very friendly and helpful and got us up to our room right away. We had an executive king room, which was one of the largest hotel rooms I've ever been in. In addition to the king-sized bed, there was a full-sized work area, large dresser, large closet, easy chair with ottoman, armchair, and work chair at the desk. The room was bright, clean, and well-maintained. The room did not have a safe, which was disappointing, and no minibar. However, there was a well-stocked convenience shop in the lobby that was open 24/7 and had a wide variety of drinks and snacks. The pillow-top bed was very comfortable -- not too hard or soft and the pillows provided the right amount of head and neck support. The climate control system did a good job against the August Nashville heat and humidity and wasn't too noisy. The soundproofing in the room could be better -- we could easily hear doors closing in the hall and the conversation/tv of the room next to us, but things were fairly quiet on the Saturday and Sunday nights we were there, so noise wasn't a problem.
For a room so large, the bathroom could have been bigger, but it had a good variety of toiletries and included the rather unusual addition of a toothbrush, toothpaste, razor, and shaving cream. We had remembered to bring all of these things, but I thought it was a nice touch by the hotel. The shower operation was a bit odd, but it had good water pressure and plenty of hot water.
The hotel has a nice array of facilities. The fitness center was bright and clean with plenty of modern equipment, although a bit oddly located among the guest rooms on the second floor. The pool area looked very nice although we didn't go swimming. We did not eat at the hotel, opting instead to head to 417 Union (right across the street) for breakfast (I'd highly recommend it, by the way) and having our other meals based on where we were. However, we did have drinks at the bar one evening and found the prices to be reasonable for a downtown hotel. The valet parking charge isn't cheap, but it was convenient and very fast.
The hotel's location seems to be great for tourists and business travelers alike. It's located in the business district but less than a 10 minute walk to the bars and clubs on Broadway or 2nd Avenue, the Country Music Hall of Fame, Ryman Auditorium, Bridgestone Arena, etc. LP Field also seemed to be within walking distance (we could see it from our room). Although the area around the hotel is pretty empty on a weekend, we weren't uncomfortable walking back late at night and wouldn't hesitate to do so again. There's a few restaurants and bars in the immediate area, but most seem to be geared toward the business lunch crowd. The hotel also offers a shuttle for destinations a little farther away. Service was quick and friendly.
In all, we were very happy with the Doubletree Nashville-Downtown. It will certainly be on the list of places we'd look to stay the next time we're in town.
