The location is a bit on the outskirts of the downtown main area, but is within walking distance (good 20-30 minutes from Honey Tonks on Broadway). It's very close to a few others areas with restaurants/bars about 5 minutes. Nashville is a decent size city but I was surprised the downtown main area has pockets of areas that are spread out. Free parking - bonus.
Hotel staff was exceptional. Very nice and accommodating. I was happy with our room. Very clean, had a refrigerator and plenty of space. Decor was better than expected. Not the most up to date room, but yet it didn't feel old. It had some new mixed with old touches. The bed was SUPER comfortable at first. I noticed as the night went on, I felt like I was sinking too deep. It could just be a different type of mattress I'm not used to, or else the mattress needs to be updated.
Breakfast was fabulous and stocked full the entire time. If you walk away hungry it's your own fault. Scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits & gravy, made to order pancakes & waffles (with toppings), yogurt, fruit, oatmeal with toppings, bagels, toast, juices and of course coffee. We were so full from breakfast each morning we weren't hungry until dinner. The staff working the breakfast was super sweet. I loved the sausage and my only complaint is you have to be careful not to get a piece at the bottom (dark brown edges) which is overcooked and hard. The breakfast area is huge with plenty of seating and an abundance of TV's and free newspapers (bonus)
Check out is later than most hotels @ 12:00pm - and breakfast ends later than most hotels @ 10:00 am. We booked this with a discounted price via Expedia for Sunday/Monday night and got a great deal. Not sure what the normal price is - but it was totally worth what we paid. It's very clear to me this hotel and staff is very accommodating and all are trying to do their best - to make it the best they can. less
