Nice standard hotel it’s disappointing that while the rest of the country has indoor dinning, Marriott under the guise of covid continues not to have the concierge lounge back to what it was They could require masks for entry and do what restaurants do. Covid has not stopped them from not having the bar or restaurant open.

Great hotel with a convenient location to the university, nightlife, restaurants, etc. The room was clean, spacious, and had everything that we needed. We didn't eat at the restaurant in the hotel, but it looked nice as well. Would stay here again; however, we would find somewhere else to park. Parking was pricey: $35 for self-parking and $40 for valet per night.

The hotel is nice and well situated. The staff wasn't terribly friendly and couldn't really help out-of-towners find things to do or places to eat--and didn't seem terribly inclined to help. We had to ask for sheets for the cot twice.

Beds are hard, wish they had pillow top. Staff was wonderful. Great location

Close to school! Have free shuttle to downtown ! Staff very helpful! Just din’ Have shuttles to airport!

I was charged by Orbitz when I booked the room 4 weeks in advance. Upon checking in I was charged again. The room was very expensive. I'd say zero value for the money. After paying almost $400 for the night the hotel charged parking and Internet fees. Rediculious. The room was very cold. I was not impressed but felt cheated.

To start, I would just like to point out that NOTHING is included for this hotel. You pay $32 to park at their facility, you pay for WiFi, and of course breakfast is about $25 per person. We stayed on a Saturday night and planned on sleeping in for a bit on Sunday morning. Unfortunately, there was a baby in the room next door. Obviously, I don’t fault the hotel for this, however, the walls are so paper thin, it literally sounded like they were at the end of our bed. I was seriously disappointed and wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

Did not receive the room we booked, as they were overbooked

We stayed here for the eclipse - right across from Centennial Park, choice of restaurants to walk to. We were delighted to return after the eclipse and find trays of orange & red "sunset" drinks and giant eclipse cookies being served to guests! Rooms were comfortable, clean and modern. Staff was friendly and efficient.

The staff was incredible, very accommodating. Michelle and Tee were awesome! Clean room with comfy bed and big fluffy pillows. Very easy to get around, free shuttle at hotel and Ubers were $3-5 to get to Broadway and the Gulch district. So convenient. Across from a nice park with 1 mile loop to get a workout in after a night of serious drinking.

Conveniently located next to Vanderbilt University. Easy access to Downtown, Broadway and the Gultch. Highly recommend this hotel!

First time in Nashville and will definitely return. We liked that we were just a short cab ride/uber ride from downtown (or a long walk) as opposed to staying in the craziness of downtown. Hotel was great and we had no issues, they even allowed us to check in early.

The staff was very helpful and answered all my silly questions. Convenient shuttle. Would be awesome to be there for a Vandy football game as our room looked right over the stadium. Pillows were awesome! Charge for parking and breakfast was way too high. Overall a good choice

Excellent stay. Great local for Belmont or Vandy sport events. Clean, excellent breakfast and friendly staff. Parking over priced.

Gave us an excellent location to stay for a football game. Will return

Nice stay, good location, close to downtown...nice and friendly experience

This was our first trip to Nashville, and we really enjoyed it. The hotel staff was amazing, they were very willing to please and the room was very clean and spacious . I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Nashville.
