“Rejuvenated Marriott at Vanderbilt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

This recently so-so hotel has been rejuvenated. The lobby is dramatically re-designed with clean, open lines and a welcoming restaurant-lounge combination that offers surprisingly good food in robust amounts. There is now no immediate need to go elsewhere. The reception and service staff are also welcoming and eager to assist. Parking is a wee deficiency because of the need for a 50 yard uncovered walk but valet service is offered at only a whisper above self-parking fees. (We found parking fees in Nashville - and especially at the airport - to be uncomfortable.)

Room Tip: Depending on your preference, you can overlook Vanderbilt's football stadium (close enough to se...

Nice, clean, comfy hotel with super friendly staff. The location is great, not too far from the interstate. It is right across the street from the Parthenon and next door to PF Chang's and Fleming's. Car service convenient for a ride to the Pancake Pantry. Being on campus, I did not know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised and would stay again.

A 2 night stay for a family wedding in Nashville. The breakfast omelets need to be included in your visit....not to miss. Room very nice with great view of the Vanderbilt football stadium. Close to many attractions, restaurants and parks. Valet car service is available and is top notch for only a few dollars more. Highly recommend.....

All of what is best about Marriott: consistent quality across the board. I arrrived late and hungry, and the restaurant was still open and fixed me a nice steak with a good glass of wine. The room was comfortable, the shower excellent. The only way to improve on this experience would have been a Nespresso coffee maker in the room with a nice selection of coffees. One can only dream!

Very helpful hotel staff, valet parking was convenient and quick, room was nice, clean, overlooked the Parthanon and had a very comfortable bed. Restaurant/bar staff also friendly, helpful and attentive and had Starbucks. Overall wonderful experience. I used to stay at Opryland, this is better.

This hotel is very nice. Free shuttle and directly across from a park and Vanderbilt stadium. The resturant service is the slowest I have ever seen. They are friendly but when you wait 30 minutes for the check after you have asked for it is not acceptable. Great hotel- the dining service.
