Awesome place to stay

This was an awesome place to stay and the staff was cool and hrlpful. We used the shuttle and went to a restaurant and it was very fast butbthe best part was the close proximity to everything on west end and downtown, best of both worlds. Parking was also a huge plus and it is across the street from the Parthenon/centenial park. I'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Expensive and noisy in the mornings

Bar and restaurant not open all weekend. You better want to get up very early, because people start slamming their room doors at dawn; rocks the entire floor and no way you can sleep through it. People are rude.

OK room with easy access to Nashville hotspots

The room itself had slightly outdated decor and could be the slightest bit roomier. But overall it was a clean room with comfortable beds and a great shower. My husband commented that he was impressed by the water pressure. This is a perfect location to stay if you're going to a Vanderbilt football game although that was not the reason for our stay. The shuttle service to downtown was awesome and we never had to wait too long to catch a ride. The shuttle stops at 11 PM though and many times is was hard to get a cab back to the hotel after an event let out. But I would recommend the hotel and would stay there again.
