Spent two nights and probably would have written a different review if only one night.
Picked the property due to location and reviews - within 6 blocks to the northeast end of Vanderbilt campus and an easy walk if you know where you are headed. Parking as noted is expensive but easily accessible. I doubt you will find reliable parking around the area on the street during evening hours.
Our room faced Division Street and directly across from the popular Patterson House "gastropub", with waiting crowds evident on the outside (took some research to figure out what it was as there was no signage). The first night I slept well and was not aware of traffic noise. The second night, Friday night, thanks to a next door room party that kept me awake, I became very aware of all the street noises as well. If you wanting quiet, ask for a parking lot "view" to avoid the street noises.
The comparisons to a dorm room are apt - lots of desk space and upper bookshelves (for what I don't know), but overall a comfortable sized "suite", although the furnishings are somewhat stark or chic (your pick). The sofa has lots of space to spread out. The bed itself is on the small side of queen size, so if you have two large persons, you may not be happy. Everything looked fairly fresh, although the bathroom had only a shower for those who care.
The breakfast was okay, although the hot items lackluster and there was an outside area for a few to sit on benches near the sidewalk. Did not use the relatively limited exercise room; there were some laundry machines as well.
I would have been disappointed if I paid the listed price but got a reasonable deal with Hilton points on a busy Vanderbilt/Nashville weekend. If you want the proximity to Music Row or Vanderbilt and find a decent price, I wouldn't have any reservations about staying (bad next door neighbors can happen anywhere).
