Holiday Inn - Nashville/Vanderbilt

Good views, even from lower floors, and conveniently walkable to just about anything and everything around the Vanderbilt campus. Big plus is live music and decent food right off the lobby. Staff is unceasingly helpful and friendly, as well as remarkably diverse.

Excellent mid-range business hotel

This is a great hotel - I heard other travelers in the lobby compare it unfavorably with a higher-end hotel next door which I have also stayed in - and of the two, I preferred the Holiday Inn! Rooms are large and clean, with mini-fridge and microwave as well as the usual coffee etc. Being right next to Vanderbilt, the hotel is in easy walking distance of numerous dining options from white-tablecloth to fast food. It's also on West End Avenue, a straight shot into downtown Nashville (about 10 minutes even in 8am traffic). I'd definitely stay here again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Within two blocks, there are several good restaurants - Bricktops (American, casual-to-midrange), PF Chang's (Chinese), and J Alexanders (upscale American). There were also numerous options I didn't get to investigate, but there's definitely something for everyone.

unbeatable location

This was my first trip to Nashville. I was there to attend the UGA- Vanderbilt football game so the location was perfect! It was also easy to get to and from the airport. The computers in the lobby were very helpful to print boarding passes. It was a pleasant walk to many nice restaurants and a great bookstore. I felt safe and would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to friends. The staff was nice and helpful!

Not Bad

This is a big Holiday Inn with a pool and restaurant / bar, which has live music Tuesday - Sunday. The band I heard was good. There is a great dive bar with karaoke across the street. Down town Nashville is too far to walk but a short cab ride away.

Chi-Town -> Nashville

Very nice, newly remodeled, located in a excellent spot in downtown Vanderbilt (Practically on campus). Walking distance to many good/hip restaurants. Downtown Nashville is a 10min car ride and the hotel offers a shuttle that also runs frequently into the city. Didnt mind staying out of downtown Nashville for the price.

Convenient & clean!

This hotel had great on-site, live entertainment in the lounge (no need to fight the weekend evening crowds in downtown bars!). When we needed to get downtown, [...] was our friendly chauffeur that was available when we needed him for a ride or pick-up. While this location was not in the heart of Nashville (just outside), it never seemed like we were too far from any conveniences.
