Maybe snotty is not the right word... Here's what happened. We booked through priceline, and the hotel obviously knows this, so the room they gave us was TINY and on the upper level along the roofline where the walls are slanted. There was barely space to walk in this room or its bathroom. Not to mention, the bed was a DOUBLE! Not good and definitely not expected from such a nice (and normally very pricey) hotel. I'm pretty sure they reserve these rooms for priceline customers only. When we asked to switch to a bit larger room, they did so. The room we ended up in was a little bit larger (with a fairly large bathroom). Still a double bed. So, we called the desk and asked if they had a bigger bed available and of course they said "No". Now, this was not a busy weekend for visiting Nashville, and not exactly in the busy season, so I'm pretty sure there was a room available and that they wouldn't allow us a bigger room because of priceline. Hence, a bit snotty. For me, just the tiny bed is not worth staying in a fancy hotel, however nice it may otherwise be.
However, despite the smaller than any couple can comfortably sleep in bed, the room was absolutely gorgeous. There were very large windows, so it had plenty of light (and wonderful black-out blinds), beautiful cabinetry, granite counters, etc, etc. Also, the bedding was incredibly soft & luxurious. The water pressure was extremely low, but I'm just being picky. I highly recommend this hotel to those who are willing to pay the normal prices, but otherwise beware of the consequences. Oh yes, and the one thing I really don't enjoy about higher end hotels (call me a hillbilly) is the lack of a continental breakfast. Especially in Nashville where you couldn't find a coffee shop to save your life.
Also, there was no free parking. You either get valet ($22/night+tip), or a pay lot ($15/night). I think that this is pretty normal for a downtown hotel. As for location, it was within about 5 blocks of all the nightlife downtown, and probably ~10 blocks (not really walking distance) down the road from Vanderbilt/Centennial Park.
