Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Hotel Nashville at Vanderbilt
My wife and I booked this hotel on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews. Vacation. Five nights. Spacious and comfortably furnished two room suite. Clean, comfortably furnished and quiet. Most rooms overlook atrium. Ours overlooked atrium and had the bedroom facing a quiet side street. Conveniently located in west end. Walking distance or easy drive to downtown attractions. Rate includes a great breakfast and a manager's happy hour. Good restaurants within quick walking distance. Parking in adjacent parkade - a bit awkward. We highly recommend this hotel.
Pancakes to die for!!!
I loved this Hotel. Staff were very helpful here. All rooms in the Hotel are suites I understand and obviously a world apart from what you find in Europe in terms of size! Breakfast here was the highlight of my stay. Pancakes and omelettes cooked to order!! Grits are offered for the adventurous to try and locals to enjoy... yes, I tried them, but not too fussed on seconds!! I would not hesitate to stay here again... I could not complain about a thing!
Perfect place to stay for business near music row/vanderbilt university
I Recently finished a 3 day weekend business trip in the music row and Vanderbilt/Belmont universities area and couldn't have picked a better hotel. I considered the Leows Vanderbilt hotel, but am glad I chose the Embassy Suites West End. The ES was much less expensive, within minutes of music row, and provided free breakfast and evening cocktails, both of which I used daily and appreciated.
My suite had plenty of space, a separate living and bedroom area, with a solid, locking bedroom door for extra security and quiet. The on site "Omaha Steaks" restaurant provided room service...steaks are a little pricey, but the food was tasty, and delivery to my room was a great convenience.
Fitness room equipment is a little sparse, (two treadmills, two stationary bikes and an outdated stair climber--no eliptical machines, and one small rack of 5-30 pound hand weights) and you may have to wait to use the equipment in the mornings... but it was adequate to get me the exercise I needed on the trip.
Valet parking at $16/day was prompt but too pricey for Nashville--they'd do well to drop the price and eliminate the complaints...
Staff was helpful and polite, and the onsite shop next to the front desk had sodas and a few snacks available if you needed them...but there's a great little deli 2 blocks down the street if you need more than that, so there's really no need for a larger selection at the "gift" shop.
I forgot my laptop so I didn't have a chance to check out the internet service available. I also rented a car, so I don't know how sparse cab service is, or walking distance to restaurants and attractions, but the hotel has its own free shuttle bus and I noticed it was used often by other guests at the hotel.
All in all it's a clean, quiet and comfortable hotel...and the breakfast bar and evening refreshments are a great feature......prefect place to stay if you're on a business trip in the area.
Nice hotel -- well-decorated and clean; upscale; good value for the money. Would stay there again.
Breakfast needs more staffing to get tables cleaned and to make and serve the food. Parking should be free -- $16 is too much!
I stayed here after the hotel first opened. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong, so maybe some of the management issues have been corrected by now, but the over crowded and dirty buffet breakfast area/tables were the worst. I will never return.
STAY AT THE EMBASSY
Just had a great weekend stay at this hotel. We had a wedding with a group of about 40 rooms and everyone loved it. The staff was just awesome, could not have been more accomodating. From the shuttle drivers, to the staff setting up breakfast, to the front desk, to the sales folk, they met every need. We had other folks at Marriot, Holiday Inn Select and they all wished they were at the Embassy.
Good stay but management improvements needed
Stayed at the Embassy Suites Vanderbilt over the 4th of July weekend. Hotel was very convenient to downtown and tourist sites. Room was clean, quiet, and neat--absolutely no problem with the room. It is necessary to pay $12 per night minimum to park in an archaic parking garage next door (UGH!). Management of the breakfast area was not up to Embassy standards--lines were long and unannounced to the clientele, the management did not treat Monday July 5 as a holiday for breakfast serving. July 5 is a holiday by just about everyone's standards! This resulted in a breakfast closure 90 minutes earlier than a holiday schedule. Service staff tried hard but were understaffed creating long breakfast lines. Management improvement is needed for the breakfast event.
Great place to stay!!
I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and highly recommend it. The suites are very nicely appointed, quite comfortable, and well kept. The bathrooms are large - bath towels are a generous size and very plush - no need to request extra towels, four sets are provided. The free cooked-to-order breakfast and evening cocktail hour are plesant ways to begin and end the day. Staff is extremely polite and accomodating. Valet parking is available.
If you are looking for a hotel where the employees are helpful, polite, friendly and just about any other good trait, stay at the Embassy Suites Vanderbilt on Broadway. Everything was exceptionly great!
This hotel was brilliant!It was only opened in 2001 so everything still looks new.There was four of us sharing a 1-bedroomed suite and even though it wasn't huge it done us fine. There was a managers evening reception from 5:30PM-7:30PM every night and there was free drinks,beer,wine,cocktails,spirits plus cheese/crackers and nibbles.
There was a breakfast buffet every morning with everything imaginable plus cooked to order eggs. The staff were so friendly,always smiling and joking. The only small downside I would say was that it is a bit out of the way if you're doing the tourist thing,I was with seniors and it was a bit too far for them to walk to the main bars/shopping areas,but the hotel do a free shuttle bus that take you within 2 miles so we used that,and they gave us a card to phone them to collect us anytime before 10pm!Only once we're they not available to collect us and we got a cab,but that wasn't a problem.I would recommend this hotel highly.

... service from the campground where we were staying to the downtown area. We arrived just as the sun was going down and all the neon lights were coming on in the lively music district. All the bars on Broadway, the main street, (and there were many) had groups or singers in the front window with the music broadcast into the street. If some sounded good to you, you could go in, get a cold one and sit and listen. We were told that with a few exceptions, all ...
... really quickly. Ended up eating 2 hard-boiled eggs and some yogurt for breakfast. By 9:15am, we were on the road to Adventureworks. We got there at 10am, following their printed directions. There was sufficient signage on the roads to get us there even without the printed directions though. We started on the dot at 10:30am and it took our group of about 10 people 2 hours to do the course. It was terrifying at first but soon I was zipping ...
... in our group onto the bar, we decided it was probably best we left. I passed the blame for coming to the bar onto someone else, with limited success.
On our search for a new bar, we stumbled across what has become my favourite story of the holiday thus far. We were stopped by a guy who asked us if we wanted a free bar for the evening. That's an interesting opening gambit at the best of times. He then said if ...
... music. The Ole Opry is home to the longest running live radio show in the USA and it attracts all the biggest names in country music. That night we saw five acts, one of which was fresh from his performance on American Idol the previous week. The show was set in a grand old theatre and was one of the best nights of our trip so far.
Next stop, the Great Smokey Mountains and Dollywood!!!!
... through a cave. We were in a group made up wholly of American families, and a tour guide called Tommy. When they found out we were from Britain, one sweet family from Indiana, with two small boys, piped up that they'd been travelling around Scotland, and had loved it. The walk through the cave was really cool, and Tommy pointed out formations that looked like bacon, fish, turtles and candles. There was a taped commentary as we completed the walk, and at the end, Ruby Falls itself ...
