Well, I really went by mostly great ratings on Trip Advisor for this one. Because it was NOT cheap!! Check-in was confusing!! The valet wasn't sure what to do with my car, I was not sure what to do with my car, they didn't know whether or not I should take my luggage, if there was room to store my luggage.....all in all CONFUSING!! Then, when I checked in, the gentleman at the desk (surprisingly not very friendly, sort of seemed annoyed more than anything) briskly answered my question about the StandyBy upgrade I had submitted by saying "There are seven weddings here this weekend you're lucky to have a room." Okayyyyyy. The lobby is pretty. The room was pretty. Everything was pretty and......okay. The AC system is CRAZY!! You are either freezing or HOT!! And it was very warm in Nashville the weekend we stayed there....in the 90's. Really not a great system for cooling. The beds were nice, but really, the whole pick your firmness level thing did not impress me. Not saying it is not nice, but for me it was....okay. The shuttle is great, the driver is VERY VERY nice!! Unfortunately, we missed the midnight cutoff and had to walk back from the Ryman....3 miles!! And no lie...80% was uphill!! And did I mention it was HOT?? But that was our fault not the shuttles. And do NOT even think about getting a cab if there are any hot concerts in town. Trust me, you will NOT get one. Do NOT miss the shuttle!! So all in all this hotel is.....okay. For the price, I was hoping for just a little more than okay. There is a LOT of competition. Maybe I hit it on a bad day, but I really think they want to strive for more than okay. And I am truly NOT hard to please. So just a note, an okay from me would probably be a really not okay from another traveler. It is a very nice hotel and I don't know that I would absolutely not recommend it, it's in a nice location BUT I would have to know that it was going to be better than just okay.
