“Great location and value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Pretty typical Embassy Suites which is a good thing. This hotel is in a great location, walking distance to Vanderbilt U. and easy short drive to downtown. Room price was comparable or better than many other hotels in area and you get so much more here - large true suite - great for families , good breakfast and of course the afternoon reception. Only beefs were (1) the workout room was small and the two treadmills broke down, leaving only two other machines for the whole hotel, and the adjacent indoor little hot tub wasn't too exciting, (2) even though its free they need to do better on the liquor brands offered at the reception - really low grade stuff. We would stay here again on another Nashville visit.

Just a few minutes from the music row area of Nashville, great location. There are several excellent restaurants within a very short walk (a block or less) from the hotel. We ate at Soulshine Pizza and Chuy's Mexican restaurant and would recommend them both. We also enjoyed cupcakes from Gigi's across the street from the hotel. The room was a good size and clean, and quiet. Be careful when parking, garage had pillars in almost every space which makes the openings narrow... but they are probably average. The staff is friendly and helpful. We have 5 in our family and we made use of the pull out couch in the suite, which was quite comfortable.

I stayed here last March for the beginning of the NCAA Tournament to see the University of Cincinnati Bearcats play. We needed a hotel that wasn't very expensive, still nice and close to Broadway. I was blown away by how nice this hotel was and would recommend anyone staying here again. The free breakfast in the morning is by far the best breakfast I've ever been served at a hotel, the free happy hour at night was another added plus. The rooms were nice, the beds were comfortable, the weather was nice and it was perfectly fine to walk from the hotel to Broadway, use the shuttle Embassy Suites provided or even take a cab (it was less than $10). Great hotel and I continue to try and stay here anytime that I plan on coming to Nashville.

This hotel is located on Broadway right in the middle of the trendy West End area. You have so many wonderful restaurants within walking distance of this property. You are only blocks away from the downtown honky tonk scene...but need a cab, too far to walk. 5 minute drive maybe. Rooms are very clean, nicely appointed and spacious. Updated and looks new. Very beautiful lobby and breakfast area. Huge wall fountain to enjoy while having the free evening appetizers & drinks (unlimited), or the wonderful breakfast buffet each morning. Best hot breakfast buffet I've seen in an American hotel. Really enjoyed being there!

We stay at embassy suites as often as possible, when traveling and this particular one was as nice as all others.I was a little agitated that when i checked prices on monday it was $159.00 and when i booked the following day it was $229.00 Staff was wonderful and very helpful with giving us information on local attractions.One downfall is we were told it was within walking distance from downtown...as far as distance it's possible, but found out the hard way that there are very busy intersections to cross that are a safety issue if you walk.hotel offers shuttle service but we also found it can be quite a wait as this hotel is VERY busy.Much easier to get a taxi as it only costs $5 to $8 one way.Also found the breakfast area to be very congested and a 15 minute wait to have an omlet made.Breakfast staff was very pleasant but it was impossible for them to keep up with restocking as busy as it was... so it lead to them being out of foods,coffee,bowls etc. quite often.needless to say set your alarm and be at breakfast as soon as they start serving.

We stay in Embassy Suites almost exclusively when we travel, so we assumed that our experience would be similar to other ES stays (which is consistently good). It was for the most part with the exception of the valet service and some room details. No sheet set for the hide-a-bed in the room, and no answer in housekeeping when we called was a minus. Also a huge red stain on the carpet in our room...looked like kool aid, but still kind of tacky. We paid close to 300 bucks (including tax) for our suite, and expected more. The valet service was kind of a mess. Couldn't find our car because our name was spelled incorrectly in the computer. We heard apologies, but they didn't sound sincere. The hotel was very busy, and I think all of the staff seemed frazzled.

This is a great hotel. You will not be disappointed. The complimentary breakfast is just awesome. The cocktail party is very nice. It is a great place to stay for close to downtown events. The staff is wonderful and helpful. The are very quick at there jobs and even in busy times they are organized and not chaos. I'm staying again in a few weeks. It's worth driving to the Bridgestone Arena ( 5 minutes drive ) and pay for parking there than pay for a hotel within walking distance for 1 &1/2 to 2 times the price. AWESOME hotel...stay one time and this one will sell itself to you.

Room Tip: They are all great suites... Don't worry about where they put you...
