Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree by Hilton Nashville-Downtown
Smooth visit. Kind of pricey, but there were no problems and the doorman was really helpful.
Are we all talking about the same hotel ?
We stayed at the Doubletree from 3rd to 7th March 2004. The rooms were
pretty standard but had everything we needed. They were clean and the
towels/bedding were changed everyday while we were there. We used the
pool and fitness room several times, ate in the restaurant and
frequented the bar ! The staff were friendly enough, especially at
breakfast. The location was excellent, and all in all, I cant find
anything to complain about. I would not hesitate to stay there again.
Doubledive would be a better name
The most overpriced, poorly maintained hotel I have ever had the displeasure to stay in. EG; no hot water for morning shower, in late Dec. The mattress was very uncomfortable and appeared to be, by it's out of shape condition, either very poor quality, very old or both.
Very noisy, the walls must have been paper thin. There seemed to be only one working elevator at a time. Simply put I would sleep in my car before using this $150 a night hotel again!
I was not impressed by this hotel and would probably try another one if I was wanting to stay downtown. My check-in experience was fine and the people I talked to were all very nice. Our room was actually pretty big (another review said the room was small) but I agree the toilet/shower room was small but didn't really cause any problems for us. My main complaint was just the fact that this hotel was quite dirty. The bathroom was dirty with hair on the floor behind the door and in the bathtub. Walking down the halls, we noticed the doors and walls just needed a good scrubbing. Our room was the same way -- just use a little cleaner and wipe the dirt off the doors and walls and it would look so much nicer! One of the 2 double beds had a twin size blanket on it that didn't overlap the sides at all - just fit on top. Also, the mattress liner (which just lays on top of the bed -- I HATE that kind!) wasn't placed in the right place on the bed. I had to take the fitted sheet off and move the mattress pad up to the right place. And the pillows were sideways in the pillow cases so, again, I had to take them out and put them in straight. I know this all sounds trivial but it just goes along with the rest of the room -- the cleaning staff just didn't care about doing a good job. We had our room "cleaned" one day and it was really a joke. We were out of kleenex and it wasn't replaced. Since our coffee maker had overflowed in the morning when we used it (it was broken), we had to use a couple of towels to clean it up and they left these obviously dirty towels on the floor in the bathroom. Really all that was done were the beds made up. We had left a candy wrapper on the bed and when they made it up, they very neatly replaced the candy wrapper on top of the bedspread. We got a kick out of that! Even with the problems, I wouldn't say it was the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. The beds and pillows were comfortable and we enjoyed the location.
The valet parking was a good price and was convenient but I don't know why valet was $12 and self-parking was $18 in the same garage. I'm sure there's a reason but I couldn't figure it out. Next time I'll try another property and who knows -- maybe I'll think this wasn't so bad after all!
Many Hotel Guests Are Awful
True, the Downtown Nashville Doubletree Hotel leaves a lot to be desired. However, as any hotel employee can attest, the average hotel guest can be difficult, petty, mean, combative, and insulting. The Doubletree has rather low rates compared to many other downtown Nashville hotels. As a result, it gets a clientele that would be better suited for a Motel 6. When these guests check in, they immediately consider themselves to be royalty, and demand to be treated as such. Anyone who hesitates to bow down and acknowledge their clearly superior status is subject to their wrath. Many business travellers do not operate under the belief that checking into a hotel suddenly elevates you to Supreme Being status, and thank God for them. They will always be welcomed. As for the other demographic - maybe you should consider other options. Not everyone will choose to buy into your selfish fantasy.
Not worth the $
I got a 50% discount for the nites I spent here. The hotel is o.k. - that's it. I didn't really have any problems, other than when I checked in. They gave me a key to a room that was already occupied. No big deal, it happens. They gave me a free breakfast for the mix-up. The furniture and fixtures in the room clearly showed their wear and use. The lamps in my room were crooked and mishapen. This hotel is nothing special. I might stay here again because of the location, but only if it was a great money saving deal.
We stayed at the downtown Doubletree in Nashville on January 4, 2003. The room was absolutely nothing special. Barely big enough to get around in. The bathroom was small too. The internet said this was a first class hotel. I would hate to see a third rate hotel in their opinion. The location was the only convenience. The front dest attendants were rude. I have never had such a horrible experience as I had at this hotel. I would not recommend it to anyone. I am also contacting the hotel directly. I just want to make sure that people who book sight-unseen know what they are getting into.
Checked out after 30 minutes of arrival
We checked in for a one night stay. They didn't tell us the pool was closed. The rooms were dated and the staff were not friendly. We checked within 30 minutes of checking in.
Not really a vacation hotel
The location's good, just a couple of blocks from Printer's Alley and 10 minutes walk to Broadway, but this hotel just has no atmosphere. The front desk staff weren't particularly friendly and seemed to be trying to look down on us because we had booked at a discount via Expedia rather than direct with them (heaven knows what they're like if you get it through Priceline!).
Their security is also dreadful. I took a safe deposit box for passports and money etc, and never once got asked to sign when I accessed it. On the day we checked out the hotel key was already in the room with the boxes and again, I didn't have to sign. Just be warned if you're leaving valuables.
The rooms were adequate but nothing special. We had planned to stay again en route from Gatlinburg to Memphis, but decided to cancel and go straight through to Memphis.
This hotel is probably fine if you're in Nashville on business, but for a vacation you want something with a bit of life.
The location is excellent for those seeking entertainment downtown Nashville. The overall accomadations weren't up to the standard of my previous experiences at Doubletree at other locations though. Valet parking was nice & not much more than what you'd pay just to park at thier hotel. The staff is A+. You can get awesome room rates at this location by going through Nashville Chamber of Commerce too, that makes the price & the location well worth the $.

... hours, but Nigel's wincing soon sorted that out for me. We made a quick lunch stop at our favourite American eatery, Taco Bell, and switched half way through the drive. The drive was mainly high way and not too breathtaking, mainly because the breathtaking bits couldn't be seen due to darkness, but we did pass through a very interesting wind farm in Indiana which stretched as far as you could see. We managed to cross through 4 states in this one drive ...

Tony and I grabbed a high table towards the back to listen to the two guys on the bar stools taking request. They were pretty good crooners. ...
... across the road from the TITANS NFL stadium. Robyn heads inside, firstly to ask how much for a room and secondly to use the ******!!! All things done Robyn comes back out telling us the bloke behind the counter said to her that the room was $88 plus tax and that he didn't care how many people were in the room. So what if we were a family of travelling wanderers with a trailer full of lamas? Could they stay there to? As to be expected we give it a miss and head down ...
... red coating that seared my chest inside-out just by breathing nearby. I got my picture though, swollen-lipped and red-faced.
I believe that most trans-american trips must include a visit to an unfamiliar Walmart for some culture. I quickly bought my 10$ watch and got House rigged up with some fishing equip. In the parking lot, a family in an RV has been parked (apparently for several weeks) there with signs exclaiming their despair ...
... came across an Amish community riding their carriages on the road. As we had not seen them before it was very interesting to see how they dressed etc, in fact it didnt look like they had changed for 100 years! As we pushed on it was getting hotter and hotter and we just wanted to get to the hotel pool to cool off so I decided to jump onto the I-40 for the last 30 miles. Boy did that pool feel good, a little chilly but so refreshing! In the evening ...
