Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Nashville/Vanderbilt
We were immediately disappointed by the tiny bathroom, and then totally disgusted by the slimy toilet, complete with several hairs. We immediately complained to the desk and left; when we returned the sludge and hairs had been moved around but not removed. Good thing we brought our own cleaning supplies. Yes, we had to clean our own toilet in a Hampton Inn charging over a hundred dollars a night in the fine West End/Vanderbilt area of Nashville. Otherwise this hotel is minimally adequate. If this is the nicest HI someone has stayed at, per another review, I shudder to think where they've been, although a few come to mind.
Very nice stay.
This is in most ways like a standard Hampton Inn, but seems above their average. The staff was very friendly and efficient, breakfast good with a nice array of choices, rooms spacious and generally clean. Didn't try the outdoor pool. The area has several types of restaurants and fast food nearby. Good value. Will stay again.
The best Hampton we've seen
We stayed in this hotel for three nights the middle of February. The hotel appears to be new. Everything was clean and fresh. Our room was comfortable. The only glitch was a mal-functioning coffee maker, which was replaced as soon as we reported it. The location on West End is convenient to a number of good restaurants within walking distance. We would stay here again.
Stayed in this hotel for 7 nights. From the moment we checked in the staff were friendly and helpful presenting us with Maps and adviding us where to go and what to do. The room was spacious, Clean and very comfortable. Would definately stay here again if we ever get the chance it's reasonably priced and in a very good location.
"Sunshine on a cloudy day"
Just back from an excellent six nights at the Hampton Inn. As an earlier reviewer mentioned, Anita the breakfast hostess offered "Sunshine on a cloudy day" as she put it, with a basket of delicious cakes.
Great gym - pool, however is not to be recommended at this time of year despite a very mild November, icy cold water!
The only problem we encountered was one day our room was not made up as the chamber maid arrived too early. We did sign a form though, to confirm that was okay. Putting the do not disturb sign on display on subsequent mornings remedied this.
All in all, we'd definitely recommend Hampton Inn Vanderbilt.
Excellent value !
I just returned from a week at the Hampton, and couldn't have been happier. The room was both large and well layed out, I especially appreciated that the AC unit had an option to vent outside air. The bed was hard, but anything is compared to my Tempurpedic at home.
The breakfast spread was above average, with plenty of seating.......Anita the breakfast hostess was so friendly and personable, she really tried to brighten everyone's day.
Couldn't have been finer!
We stayed at this hotel, last August, it was close to everything we wanted to visit. It was very clean, and comfortable. The front desk, was very helpful, even the security guard, was helpful and friendly! The breakfast was wonderful. It was close to the downtown area, so we had easy access to and from our hotel. Would defintely stay here again. By the way very nice pool area.
I trusted the other reviews
I stayed at this hotel because of the raving reviews that I read. It is not so great. There is a brand-new Hampton Inn & Suites - The University just two blocks away that is tons better. I was sorry that I didn't stay there. My colleague stayed there for the same price I paid and she got upgraded to a suite! West End is a nice area in which to stay. Lots of restaurants...and very easy drive or taxi ride to downtown area. The only nice thing about Hampton Inn - Vanderbilt is that there was a brew pub right across the street.
Excellent hotel and location
I stayed at this hotel after fleeing from the disgusting Days Inn up the road. It was well worth the money. The front desk was incredibly curteous, even at 11:30 PM, the room was huge, clean, and well-lit. The breakfast the next day was substantial and varied, with the aforementioned KK doughnuts. To top it off, it was a three minute to the medical center the next day. All in all, a great value on West End Ave.
Great place to stay near Vanderbilt University
I've stayed at this Hampton Inn twice and enjoyed it very much both times. The rooms are slightly larger than most Hampton Inns and, as you would expect with this chain, everything is very clean and well-kept. The desk staff is very friendly and the continental breakfast is above average for a Hampton Inn (gotta love the fresh Krispy Kreme doughnuts -- the real thing, not some store brand).
When I lived in Nashville I worked at Vanderbilt University and this was where we always reserved rooms for candidates for positions we were bringing into town for interviews. It's about a block from the campus. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance ranging from fast food to brew pubs to nicer sit-down places. Noshville, the popular deli, is within walking distance, and the Thai restaurant that's more or less across the street from the hotel (Salathai) is also very good and a good value.
I would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay there again when I'm in Nashville.

... was very interesting. The foyer has lots of old bits and pieces and history on JD and information about the prohibition and how it affected the company and also a "how to make the whisky" model. Geoff - we must make a still.

... this horrific wedding party staying in the Hostel, like the bride, groom everyone. It's like Gypsy wedding crossed with Cowboy trash. They all spend the whole morning getting ready in the hostile communal bathroom and the brides maids have fluorescent orange dresses on and boots and the bride has the sparkliest dress I have ever seen. I mean I shouldn't judge, but I ...
After lunch (where it was actually hot), it started completely pouring down on the way to the hostel. Ironically, our guide Kate's 'rainy drive' music is the beach boys, so we sung along to Cocomo for a while :). We soon made it to the hostel, which was actually really nice and funky. It was super exciting to have a bed to sleep in though, so I am definitely going to sleep well tonight.
We headed out to ...
... song, "You take me places, I've never been," which we found out was by Mark Wills. The lyrics and tune were lovely and would have made an excellent song for our travel-themed wedding! It only took around three hours to drive to Nashville, but as we had been so engrossed in Graceland, we were well behind our pre-planned schedule!

Nashville is a truly awesome city. We didn't really know what to expect except lots of country music, and that we found.
Walking down Broadway Street is a very cool experience. There's loads of bars and restaurants all with a live band or solo singer, boot shops selling the most fabulous cowboy and cowgirl boots, clothing shops stocked with everything you need for that real southern look and giant neon signs outside every bar.
