Best Western Downtown Convention Center
Travel Blogs from Nashville
Friday 30th May Got the van washed by professionals. But it took them forever, one member kept replacing the other and washing the place the other one had just done. It drove us crazy. Handed the van back, again lots of checks and waiting around before we were finally dropped off at the hotel. In the evening we had a supper cruise on the General …

... we got back to the hotel we had a drink in the sports bar, got talked into a flatbread pizza neither of us wanted ( the waitress was very persuasive) but our pizza came and the couple at the next table got their order too but theirs looked MUCH better than ours. Tod and I picked at our pizza and looked longingly at the next table... So we ate all the pepperoni off the pizza and a few of the mushrooms and declared we were done but wanted some of what ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Best Western Downtown Convention Center Nashville
Stay away from this place. If they foul up, they will not accept responsibility. You are on your own.
Great Location! Smelly hotel!
This hotel has a great location. That's the best thing I can say about it...
The air conditioner worked fine and the free valet parking was quite convenient. Also, everyone we talked to that worked at the hotel seemed quite friendly and helpful. The lobby is nice -- the constant supply of free coffee in the lobby was a nice touch.
However, there were many downsides to the hotel. Every hallway/room of the hotel had a different unpleasant smell. There was blue mold on the shower ceiling. The toilet moved when you sat down. Nothing felt especially clean about the room, and dirty towels were left in our room and not fully replenished...
Though the price was reasonable, I would not stay here again.
I am a rather low maintenance guy and easy going. I don't ask for a lot, just a roof over my head and a place to lay my head at night. I don't need your fancy lotions in my hotel bathroom or a plasma TV on the wall, heck I really don't even require room service to make my bed each morning. However I must declare, I was appalled & disgusted with my ridiculous experience this past week at the Best Western Downtown Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. Not only was the customer service staff cold, unconcerned, and unhelpful, but the physical infrastructure of the hotel, plumbing, and electricity was a comedy show. Don't get me wrong, I knew going into this that staying at the Best Western was not going to be heavenly; it's no Marriott or Hilton. I was trying to save my company money, but what I endured was well below anyone's expectations.
We checked in 2:00 am Xmas Day. Our reservations should have been from Dec 24th - Jan 1st, instead they had us checking out Dec 31st and no rooms available for New Year's Eve. This turned out to be a good thing as we checked out at 7:00 am Xmas Day. When we arrived at our rooms (2 couples, 2 rooms) there was no heat. Being exhausted we turned on the heat and went to bed, fully clothed and with the blankets from two beds on one. It was so cold the only thing keeping us warm was body heat. I awoke at 6:15 and upon my return from the rest room discovered my woolen socks, which I slept in, were soaked. We soon discovered the entire carpet was wet and by pushing on it with our shoes you could see the water coming out. By 6:30 am we were on the street seeking lodging. At -4 in Nashville, it was warmer than our room. Fortunately we found 2 rooms at the Sheraton across the street and by 7:15 we were moved in. Warm rooms and dry carpets. The staff and accomadations were great and we would definitely stay there again. W
Great location; walking distance from everything. If not, front desk employees were more than happy to call us a taxi. Continental breakfast not bad. Housekeeping was reliable. Friendly employees.
Not close to convention center
This hotel is not close to Convention center at all. Good 15 minutes walk, uphill. False advertisement. Rooms are filthy, with bad bad Customer Service. Would never never stay here again. Also has bugs in beds and linen, horrible stay.
Over sweetest day weekend my wife and I stayed here when we attended a wedding at the Hermitage Hotel which is a couple blocks away. Upon arrival we were very pleased to find unlike what previous reviews that the hotel had a cozy feel to it and our room was very nice. The furniture and and room in general appeared to have been remodeled with nice cherry furniture. We were very pleased. There were some negatives. We unfortunately shared a hotel with a bunch of party people. We like to party as much as the next person but these partiers were absolutely out of control. It seemed like we shared a hotel with a bunch of florida spring breakers. I suppose this could happen anywhere but for the price we paid we really should not have put up with it. The hotel staff didn't control the situation. Would we stay here again? Maybe, maybe not. I would check the sheraton next door. If price is a factor though you can't go wrong staying here. All in all, really nice room but bad timing.
This is an average hotel with a good location. The convention center is a few blocks away and the main Broadway music area are a short ~15 minute walk. You are staying next to the Sheraton and Hermitage hotels which are both in the $150+ range. This hotel is typically under $100 and you are paying for location, not elegance. If you want to save a few dollars, you can stay near the stadium and still walk to the Broadway area.
Fine another hotel
I guess when a hotel is the cheapest in downtown Nashville, there is a reason. It was definately not near the Convention center, it was a four block walk, up a hill!! The first room we had smelled like urine, but we stuck it out until the next morning. They blamed it on shampooing the carpeting and not leaving the door open to dry. We moved to a new room, somewhat better. When we returned one night the light in the bathroom was out, and we were told there was no one that could change it, so 2 of us took showers in the dark. After insisting someone change the bulb, the manager came and was very agreeable in changing it. It seemed the front desk person just didn't want to let him know. Certain front desk employees were just not interested in giving any customer service.
A grot shop
The hotel is in a reasonable location and looks quite nice from the outside. However, do not be fooled by this. The room we had was disgusting, filthy carpet, burned bedspread - need I go on. We wouldn't stay in this hotel again if it was the last one in Nashville, or in Tennessee for that matter.
