My favorite hotel in downtown Nashville. It is an awesome hotel, and the location is excellent. 1 block from Broadway, Bridgestone Arena, and the Ryman. More food, drinking, dancing and entertainment than you can experience in a weekend, and a simple walk home. All with a great view, great lounge, and excellent service, you will not be disappointed.

Overall, our stay was a nice one here. I was a little nervous about the location being so close to the convention center, but it was very good for what we wanted. We wanted to be near all honkytonks. When we arrived, we were asked if we wanted a high floor or a low floor. We asked for a high floor because I had read that you might be able to hear all the noise from the bars. They did not have a high floor (although we could upgrade for an extra $20--which I have never been asked before--usually if a hotel has offered an upgrade it's been free. Needless to say we did not pay extra for the upgrade). We were on the 7th floor facing the street/garage and didn't have an issue with noise. Overall, decent size room and pretty decent hotel. I didn't have an issue with staff, but didn't really interact much with them. We choose to do the valet because we knew we would take the car in and out to do things during the day. Very expensive, but the valets did retrieve our car quickly and always asked if we needed directions. (Valet was $29.50 (that was with tax?), while self park was $8, but you have to pay every time you go in and out.) Walls are a little thin. Not too much of an issue since our neighbors weren't too noisey, but could hear them talking on the phone and coughing. Also did use the pool. It wasn't all warm, but still refreshing. Jacuzzi is nice but not overly hot. Not sure how often they service it b/c a bandage near the ladder was not removed while we were there and same room key was left on a table. We did not use the bar or restaurant, so not sure how that was. We were minutes away from the Ryman, 2nd Ave and Broadway, and some other things like the hockey arena and the country music hall of fame. We thought 2nd Ave was a little touristy and the bars seem to be more sports bar types of places. It seems like if you want the live music, go to 2nd Ave. If you want to be near Vanderbilt, this probably isn't the place for you. It was a little pricey, but so were a lot of the others in the downtown area.

On a side note, we went to Opryland for dinner one night, and it seemed really confusing. Self parking there was $18, so for dinner we had to pay for parking.

I would probably stay here again

Overall, I thought the loca

We booked the hotel for a romantic kid free getaway and to enjoy Wicked at TPAC. Although it is a typical convention/business hotel the rooms were more than suitable to our needs. The Bridge bar was great for after show drinks with the friends. The hotel was fully booked but did not feel crowded. The elevators were overwhelmed for a good while until the visiting NFL team retired.

The king rooms have my favorite Marriott bed. The pillows were the disappointing tiny one hotels seem to insist on putting on large beds. The shower head was properly located over my head yet was one of the more disappointing conservation models. Furnishings were modern and the TV was HD and large.

Location is the biggest selling point. It is no more than two to three blocks to everything worth going to in downtown. Mortons where we ate dinner is very close as are the lower Broadway and 2nd ave tourists traps.

We had a wonderful capital and library view. I would suggest requesting staying on the same North side. Quieter and more attractive view.

From Sept. 26, 2011 to Oct. 2, 2011 we attended the International Bluegrass Music Association, exhibit & fanfest in Nashville, TN. While there we stayed at the Renaissance Hotel, which was very adequate for all events, which, with the exception of the Awards show being held in the Ryman Auditorium which is directly across the street, were all held in the Nashville Convention Center which is attached to the Hotel itself making it VERY convenient. The staff was cheerful but not really helpful as in two instances I made a minor request and the replies seemed as if they read their answers off a queue card....bottom line was they couldn't, (read that "wouldn't" do anything).
Our first visit to Nashville was an eye-opener, especially as to costs. EVERYTHING is expensive, (forget the restaurant in the hotel unless you have a credit card with a high limit), PARKING....Nowhere in the downtown area is there free parking.... absolute minimum is $8.00/day and most are $12 to $15/day with NO in-and-out privileges. (The hotel's valet parking was $27.00/day and again, no in-and-out privileges). Our room cost was $175 per day, which was a "special" group rate.....normally $235/day, plus, of course the tax which was an additional $29.19 per day.
Our room was on the 21st floor, small & carpets needed shampooing badly. The bed was comfortable and the mattress slept very well. For a 4 star hotel the Renaissance leaves A LOT to be desired. I have stayed in many 3 star locations, ( and even a couple of 2 stars when the situation at the moment required it), that were at least equal to, if not exceeding, the Renaissance.
There are only 5 guest elevators and waiting upon them became a real pain almost from the beginning. With 25 floors and 649 rooms and all rooms full, 5 elevators are just not enough.
The only real high point of this hotel is the convenience.
