I spent two nights here during the Country Music Marathon Weekend. Overall, the hotel is fantastic and all of the staff I encountered were fabulous.
Pros: Location, location, location. The prime location of this hotel cannot be overstated. It is directly across from the lovely Centennial Park, near great restaurants and shopping. Plus, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle within a three-mile radius. The room was very comfortable, but could stand to be updated a bit. Our room on the eighth floor overlooked Vanderbilt Stadium. The bed was very comfortable with nice pillows. I can't say enough about how helpful and accommodating the staff was. I'm a Marriott Rewards member and was thanked for my loyalty upon check in. The hotel also gave out information about the marathon at check in and everyone seemed to genuinely care about our experience. The Starbucks in the lobby is a great convenience and the rooms have coffee makers in them, too.
Cons: Not many. Valet and self-parking is pretty pricey at $29 per night. We parked on the street about a block away for free. Also, the bath towels are really shabby. They are worn out and not soft at all. I expect more from the Marriott.
Overall, I recommend this hotel and would stay here again, but maybe bring my own towels!
