“Solid hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

The breakfast was hot and pretty good, but the lady preparing the omelets and waffles was not at all happy to be there. There's no pool, which came as a surprise (but probably shouldn't have).There was an adequate fitness room and an unappealing hot tub.

The hotel is really in a good location. We had a king bed and a pull out couch. breakfast was good, although a little crowded and hectic due to it being a buffet with a few different stations that you had to bounce between.
Walking distance to 5-6 good bars, including Winners/Losers, Mojo, the Red Door, Rebar, and a good restaurant with a patio called Tavern.
One elevator did not work, and the lobby restrooms were not really clean, but again, breakfast in the lobby is mayhem so I wasnt suprised.
The shuttle downtown was great, you can even make a reservation for your party for specific times.

It was a beautiful hotel to stay at. Very clean rooms, with VERY comfortable beds. Close to downtown. Its within walking distance if you don't mind a little stroll. If not, valet service will hail you a cab. You do have to pay for nightly parking which seems to be the norm in Nashville. The complimentary breakfast, and complimentary Happy Hour surely made up for that. I highly recommend this hotel for your next visit to Nashville. You won't be disappointed.

Stayed here for a long weekend getaway with my sisters. The room was spacious, and allowed 4 adults to not be stepping on each other's toes all weekend. The breakfast was very good, typical of what I expect from this chain. Made-to-order omelette and waffle line seemed to move fairly quickly. The happy hour was nice, but the appetizers weren't. One evening we had fresh veggies and delicious pita chips with some other stuff, while another evening other we only had some stale tortilla chips, pretzels and some weird dips. We never had any hearty appetizers that could replace a meal.

While the door between the living room and bedroom minimized noise, the sound proofing between the rooms and between the room in the hallway wasn't great. We could hear the people in the room next to us, and were awakened each night by drunks in the hallway. (Our room was right by the elevator - perhaps this wouldn't be a problem with a room at the end of the hallway)

There are some bars and restaurants near the hotel, but the main bar area downtown is too far to walk. There is a free hotel shuttle that will take you downtown, but you have to reserve it far in advance on a weekend. We ended up having to drive, although taking a cab would have been an option.

Parking was expensive, but we never had a problem finding a spot near the entrance to the hotel.

Overall a good stay, just wish the rooms were a little quieter.

Everything was great about our stay. The free breakfast offering omlettes/eggs any way you want, waffles, bacon, sausage, etc. was fabulous. Fruit selection was just ok...the classic fillers of honeydew and cantaloupe were present, could have used more bananas. I don't feel like I can complain, though, it was free, and good! Happy hour nightly 5:30-7:30 was a nice perk as well if we were back for it. Shuttle service took us right to where the action was. No negatives. Great location and you can easily walk to the Vanderbilt campus.

Hotel was extremely loud, filled with drunk people, vomit in the elevator! Trash, empty beer cans and cigarettes all over hallway between parking garage and hotel. If you are seeking the party frat house environment, this is the place. Otherwise, save your money and stay at another hotel!

We had a fabulous time in Nashville not only because of the fun things to do and see but also because of our EXCELLENT stay! The valet supervisor and staff went out of their way to ensure that we knew about the great attractions and provided excellent directions! For the sites downtown, they provided prompt and courteous shuttle
service! Excellent breakfast buffet fit for a King!
