worked great for us

hotel is still undergoing exterior renovations but the room was great. breakfast exceeded our expectations. staff was very friendly. we were able to check in early when we arrived at 8am which was a welcome surprise. good location for downtown at the right price. would stay again as long as you don't mind some construction going on.

Great place for an on-the-go guest

We do not spend much time in our hotel room when traveling, so this establishment provided a prime location and comfortable atmosphere for a rest between our outings.

Tore Up

The place was very much tore up with remodeling. The staff was very helpful and congenial, but the conditions made the stay a relatively poor value. In hindsight, I would have stayed elsewhere.

Renovation

Hotel was undergoing major renovations. Our room had noise, wires outside room, and traffic.there was one elevator barely functioning. Your travel site should have listed under renovations and we would have chosen another hotel. Also the hotel was no longer the hotel we had chosen. It had another name.

Room was nice but reconstruction needed!

What I liked most about staying at the Best Western Downtown Convention Center was the price, which was probably lowered because of the construction. Nonetheless, I found the location to be convenient to downtown, as well as a clean room, a comfy bed, and a very nice staff. I didn't like the construction, although I'd read about the revamping in a review and knew what to expect. If you can overlook the sawdust and ripped-up parts, you'll find the BWDCC a good place to stay at a price that will leave you more money to use toward having fun, fun, fun in Music City!

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

It's a restaurant called "The Southern" and it's darn good! I dined there in 2013 and it lured me back. It was, once again, a deliciously lovely experience!

Great location!

This hotel is in a perfect location in downtown Nashville - accessible and walking distance to so many sites! The hotel is currently undergoing a lot of renovation so I imagine it will be a nicer place to stay in the next couple months. The price was a good fit for us and the continental breakfast was a plus.

Bachelorette weekend

We stayed here for a bachelorette party. This hotel was perfect for us because we were only there to sleep and get ready. The rooms were super clean but a little small. The location was great, we were able to walk everywhere. The continental breakfast was a plus. Parking was a great deal compared to other hotels in the area that I've stayed at. The staff was awesome! They were so nice and friendly!

Good location but looks terrible

When I first came to the hotel I didn't actually realise I was there because the whole place looked like a working space. The entire facade of the hotel is being renovated with dust and debris, noise from 8 AM and so on. But the rooms were actually very nice, clean and comfortable. There should be some information about what is going on at the hotel. Or better- close it until all work is done.
