Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is an upscale hotel and therefore, meets the standards for cleanliness and service. The front desk staff is friendly and efficient. The lobby is large and open and connects to a nice restaurant/bar. The location is great! Adjacent to Vanderbilt Univ, a few blocks from Belmont Univ, across the street from Centennial Park and close to downtown Nashville. The area around the hotel offers a variety of dining and entertainment options. The hotel offers valet parking at a reasonable cost and the valet staff was friendly and sufficiently staffed to get cars in and out quickly.

Located in Nashville's West End, the hotel sits adjacent to Vanderbilt campus, across the street from Centennial Park. (I could see the Parthenon from the valet and Vanderbilt Stadium from my room!)

All the staff were great. The front desk and valet folks exuded friendly customer service and were always ready to assist. This particular property also operates a complimentary shuttle that carries guests anywhere within a two mile radius. One of the operators, Michael, was extremely helpful, recommending plenty of local restaurants with an exceptionally friendly demeanor. Hats off to the valet team.

The lobby and café were very well designed, clean and aesthetically appealing. The rooms were okay but not the best. You could tell they've had wear and tear but the hotel does what it can to maintain a positive guest experience. Most importantly, it was pretty quiet throughout my stay. (Although, I have to mention it was a Monday and I was travelling on business. I can't imagine what the place is like during Vandy football games!)

There is complimentary wi-fi in the room, provided you're a Marriott Rewards member. Guests who are not Rewards members are charged for internet, which can easily be charged to the room.

There are plenty of restaurant choices - both chains and local fare - near the hotel, so you're definitely not limited in any way. I didn't get a chance to see the workout room or the pool, but from what others have written, I wouldn't expect much. I did, however, see plenty of runners in the park and around campus.

Overall, I'd definitely stay here again and would recommend it to friends. There are a couple of other choices right around there (Holiday Inn, Lowe's, and a couple of others) but the Marriott proves an excellent value.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor overlooking Centennial Park or overlooking Vandy stadium.

Location, food, view, rooms, cleanliness, friendliness -- got it all.
Though not extra-ordinary in each of the individual counts above, as a package above average for each and hence excellent overall.
Good food joints nearby. Though the hotel has good food too. Has a view of the University football stadium (at least had from my room). Near the park (Centennial Park).
It has got all the other smaller amenities (like a convenience store, shuttle service to/from airport, laundry, etc)
I would suggest, all those who are looking to stay in Nashville, to give this a shot.

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!
