A night away from home

A night away from the kids and chaos. We stayed here to celebrate our 8th anniversary. Great location. Walking distance to several resturarns, parks and shops. Nice rooms that were very quiet. Great food on the breakfast buffet. We were sent home well rested and feed.

Great Location

The experience was good. It was a nice clean hotel to rest your head at the end of the day. Today, all hotels should have free internet as people travel for business and the need is just as common as cable TV. To have to pay for that type of service makes customers feel like there are always hidden service charges and they are being nickeled and dimed to death. You could have simply taken your laptop to the Starbucks in the same plaza and gotten free wifi. Also, when you stay at a hotel, parking should simply be included. Other hotels, in the same area, had parking lots for their guests at no charge. Fix those two items and this hotel would have been a GREAT hotel.

We were surprised they made no comment about saving water since one water plant was down while we were there right after the flood.

Good Location, Good Hotel

Enjoyed the hotel. I was dissapointed with the parking charges. I'm sorry but a hotel should include parking, no discussion. I don't care about alacarte pricing; should NEVER include parking as an add on.

Top Notch

My husband and I decided at the last minute to go to the CMA fan fest so hotel rooms were scarce. I can't believe how lucky we got. The hotel was great and our room was spotless. I'm very picky about clean rooms and I could find nothing wrong. The hotel offers a free shuttle as well which made getting downtown a breeze. All of the employees were very friendly and helpful as well.

Vanderbilt University Experience.

The hotel was very clean and met all my my needs. I wished that the font desk was more knowledgeable of the Vanderbilt Campus and events. Shuttle service gave us a ride to the country music district, but did not answer for the return ride. Cabs were inexpensive and readily available. We at at Jackson's down the street and food was really good. If you are visiting Vanderbilt for any reason, I would recommend this place. They charged $.250 for a drink in machines and $4.00 for a bottle water. This was a negative and I would suggest bringing your own if you plan on drinking more than the one provided in the room. I did purchase because of the convenience but would be more prepared if returning again.

My review of Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University

Centrally located and easy ride from Airport. Room was quite nice and very clean. Only criticism would be narrow room service menu and exhorbitant pricing. We ended up going down to lobby to get coffee in the morning.
