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!

Hotel is very clean and well appointed, servicing of my room was very well done and consistent, hotel is a little off the beaten path vis avis music row and downtown, but otherwise very good for the price

Nice, tough competition though

The room's were quite large and the location is fine, right between the Parthenon and literally next door to Vanderbilt's stadium. The 12.5 m pool is a little short if you want a workout. Parking's ample. And the courtesy shuttle was great getting downtown and out to dinner. The beds weren't the best, but not bad either. Holiday Inn though is right in the neighborhood of (at least) two other great hotels. Holiday Inn is more focused on the business traveler than the tourist, so it's bit less trendy and focused on luxury-amenities.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

I'm not a country music fan, but I still got something out of the Country Music Hall of Fame (though once is enough for me). But I got next to nothing out of the Grand Ole Opry museum. Probably just my personal taste though.

Will use them again.

I was in town for medical appointments at Vanderbilt, so this was a great location. I could walk to finer dining or fast food as both can be found within 2-3 blocks. It backs up to Vanderbilt campus and stadium and sits across from Centennial Park, so you can stoll if the weather is nice. You are less than a 10 minute drive from several other sites of interest and main interstate connections to get to the airport or on your way to your next destination. The hotel was not plush, but more than adequate with nice rooms, good heating / cooling,and more than just the basic amenities. Good breakfast buffet with friendly wait staff. I would stay there again.

rooms really small

The neighborhood was not what I expected, it was on a really busy street. The rooms were small but clean. Kind of expensive for what we got.

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.

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.

Hotel includes a decent lounge showcasing some excellent local talent in country western music. Good venue for listening to songwriters' original work in shifts of four. It can make a urbanite into a fan.
