“Weekend in Nashville”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

A group of friends and I stayed here this past weekend. It was a good trip. We were looking for a place last minute and found this location. We were on the 7th floor looking across to a Cancer home. Friday night was pretty quiet in the room, the pull out sofa fit 2 fine and so did the queen sized bed. I would request or bring with you extra blankets if you plan on sleeping on the pull out sofa. Our room got a little chilly and the thin sheet and thin blanket wasn't really enough for sleeping on the pull out sofa. Bathroom was large & roomy. The room was okay, décor isn't my taste but we were only staying there for the weekend so it didn't concern me much. The location is a little further away from the main part of Broadway (there is a shuttle that does go downtown til 12pm on the weekends) however Music Row wasn't a bad area we found some bars and restaurants worth stopping at over the weekend. We enjoyed some live music at SoulShine and enjoyed our dinner at Tavern. Saturday night unfortunately we must have had some college students because at about 4:30am they were making all kinds of noise, yelling, sounded like they were jumping off the beds. After about 15 minutes of that we heard security come to their door then things got quiet. Other than that it was a decent place to stay. The parking was $20 a day which was hefty but looking at the parking situation in that area I can see why they charge a premium. Decent stay overall.

Dear sunshinevt,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review on tripadvisor.com! I am glad that you and your friends enjoyed your weekend with us. Thank you for the note regarding the blankets for the sleeper sofa. We always keep extras on hand, so next time be sure to ask and we will deliver one for you. I also apologize about the unruly nextdoor guests. As we are in a college neighborhood with hotspots for partiers, so we sometimes get our share of wild guests. But I am glad to know that our overnight staff took care of it right away. Thank you again for your review on tripadvisor.com and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Sincerely,
Merrily Bell
General Manager

Stayed at the Home2 Suites while attending a conference in Nashville, Tn. The overall condition of the hotel was very good. There was a little construction in the lobby due to a crack but it was managed very well. The only small compliant I have is the bathroom. It was clean except in the corners of the shower. It could stand a little deep cleaning. Did see a few small pieces of trash that the vacuum cleaner missed while working out on the floor. I do like things clean at home and away from home so I'm not trying to be over critical. The staff was great especially the courtesy van drivers: George, Anthony, Toby and another guy's name I can't remember but but his son graduated from high school while I was there. The hotel isn't in the heart of downtown but it's just a quick shuttle ride away and these guys get you there! I would recommend the hotel and I would stay with them again.

This was a GREAT hotel! Very close to downtown Nashville! There was a free shuttle that took you to and from where you wanted to go (within 3 miles of the hotel, which most things are). Free breakfast was impressive, staff was great, rooms are HUGE! Great hotel!

We stayed at Hilton's Home2 Suites in the Nashville/Vanderbilt area. We spent two nights, and booked the hotel primarily for the location and that it was a Hilton property. While I understand what Hilton is trying to do here (green lifestyle, hipster appeal) - it was "not my cup of tea" (as my mother would have us say when we didn't like something). The rooms were sparse, cheaply decorated in an IKEA /dorm room look. The bed was not queen size as stated (we sleep in a queen size bed at home). What really bothered me was the curtain that separated the couch area from the sleeping area - making it a suite. The same curtain appeared in front of the closet - instead of a door. The small kitchen area, complete with dishes and dishwasher was nice - but not something we needed. The large screen TV was nice. We were annoyed at the $20.00 fee to park, difficulty loading and unloading, with inadequate space to park your car to do so. Breakfast promptly ended at 9AM, which did not fit our schedule.
We have stayed numerous times at Cambria Suites - which I am going to guess is the look and feel of what Hilton Home2Suites is trying to emulate. Look at Cambria Suites closer and get some ideas of what can be done better. They have the modern, sparse, green look - but done in a much more appealing way. If this Home2Suites location does not work out, I am sure Vanderbilt would love this property for a dorm.

Room Tip: We had a horrible view - perhaps staying in even numbered rooms across the hall would be a better id...

Green Features: Definitely environmentally friendly at the expense of the comfort of its guests.

First time travelers to Nashville often prefer to stay in downtown Nashville (and understandably so). However, staying near Music Row and Vanderbilt Univ offers some good options, including this hotel. This new Hilton brand is very similar in spirit to the established Homewood Suites brand by Hilton. Home2 is an updated version based on its color schemes, furniture, and themes of sustainability and conservation seen in areas ranging from housekeeping to breakfast. I would even categorize the rooms as utilitarian or efficient. The room is shaped as a narrow rectangle; a curtain is available to separate the sleeping area from the "sitting" area. The window treatment just consisted of a white shade; no curtains. My third floor, rear facing room had an uninspirational view of the parking garage. Other aspects of the room were fine, including mattress comfort, lighting, lamp mounted outlets for iPad/computer charging, water pressure & temperature, and wall insulation (quiet). The lobby decor and breakfast area is "modern." Food quality is probably better than what you would find at a Hampton Inn; not as extensive as an Embassy Suites. Located less than 5 minutes from the Demonbreun exit off I-40 on the west side of town. There is an attached parking garage where you can either valet or self-park (both costly fee). The hotel offers a 24 hour shuttle bus service to the center of town. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance of the hotel. A special acknowledgement to the staff working here; all who I met were very extremely polite, friendly, and helpful. It made a positive impression.

Room Tip: If view is important, get an upper floor.

Couldn't have been happier with my four-night stay at this hotel. The room was great, but what really impressed was the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff members. The complimentary shuttle service is also a great facility.

Price was jacked up due to Vanderbilt Graduation but I'd still stay there again. The place is kind of trendy and cool. It's in a great location for Vanderbilt and the West End. Climate control in the room was the only real problem we had.
