There was some worry when I left home around Noon about the weather as there were tornado warnings throughout the state. However, as we drove South, the sun started shining and we got a little warm in the car. It took 30 minutes for me to get to Becky's house where she and Reba were anxiously …

Our little 9 hour venture to Ohio took us up to one of the country's most northern states. That venture meant the next day, we had to drive all the way back down to the southern state of Alabama.

It's the wrong Hilton- I swore at the front desk ( not at the very helpful lady but in general - turns out bollocks is ok, but **** will bring a disapproving look). Never mind back we go, with clear directions and finally reach the double tree hilton (same road, similar name - give a girl a break, she's been awake for 19 hours). Checking in is smooth - Beth was lovely, and we head to the room. The bed is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Homewood Suites by Hilton Nashville-Airport
We stayed for 6 nights and had a great experience. The breakfasts were more than adequate. Our airconditioning was just fine-and we like it COLD in the room-wasn't noisy at all-maybe we were just lucky. We even ate dinner three nights. What a value! The pool was clean and refreshing. Staff was very helpful and extremely friendly. We even used the laundry facility-the machines were clean and in good working order. The location is ideal. After a couple of days we had decided to extend our stay and they gave us a better rate for the entire length of the stay.
We had stayed at this hotel in 2005 and we were so looking forward to a return trip. We were very disappointed this time and had to check out and did not get to stay there.
Researched Tripadvisor to find this hotel and what a nice place. Outside is not fancy and you can't see the pool area, but after checking other locations (Opry area) we decided quickly to keep our 5 day reservations for this 1 bedroom suite. Full size refrig, dishwasher, 2 burner stove, micro, dishes, pots/pans, etc. combo kitchen, dining and living room (with pull out sofa bed), 2 tv's, vcr, and the bedding was fresh & new (elegant). There is some minor construction (1 miles?) on Highway 155 than could affect your on/off ramps to Highway 155 (takes you to Opry area) but the accomodations are worth the minor inconvience. This is a lovely large suite hotel in a quite area. Fast food chains, drug stores within 1/2 - 1 mile. Area restaurants were nothing special. Highly recommend this hotel. A good half-way point between downtown and Opry.
I travelled to this hotel with my husband and 3 yr old daughter and 10 month old son. We had the 1 bedroom suite and my daughter slept on the pull out couch. I really liked that we had a kitchen and full refridge in our room, especially with small children. The morning breakfast (hot foods, not just danish) and the "evening social" meals were excellent and saved us a few bucks. The evening menu is posted for the month in your room and I think we were there for the best week. We enjoyed the pool even though it didn't have a kiddie pool. The hotel is near the airport so that means the planes are going over very low (and loud). But it is also near the Opryland Hotel and the Opry Mills Mall (with several good restaurants including the Rainforest Cafe and The Aquarium).
My extended family and I ( eight people) stayed in a 2 bedroom-suite at the The Homewood Suites near Nashville airport and we were very pleased with the accomodations. The rooms were spacious and clean, and well-furnished. They also provided a wonderful breakfast free with your stay every morning. It was an excellent location, far enough away from the hub-bub of the city, yet within 15-20 minutes of all major attractions. We would definately stay there again.
It is a little unfair to give a very low rating to a hotel when you didn't stay there and your only contact was with central reservations. I have stayed there - in March this year - and was delighted. The suite was excellent, and very comfortable, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The hotel has a shuttle bus which will drop you off and pick you up at Opryland, and we were even taken to Famous Dave's Barbecue Pit, even though it was nearly seven miles away. I understand where the reviewer is coming from though. Central Reservation staff can be a pain, but I find it is best to contact the hotel direct. On my last trip driving nearly 10,000 miles, I sometimes arrived a day or two early, and I used the Hilton group almost exclusively. In all but one case, there was never a problem, and I certainly never paid more than my advanced booking rate. The Homewood Suites hotel does do a fantastically cheap weekend rate, considering its location. It is easy to get to the entertainment centre of Nashville from there, and you have the added bonus of being near the airport (with the shuttle service) without having any of the noise. I'm going to stay there again in four weeks time; that's how impressed I was.
This really isn't directed at this property in particular, but it was the hotel for which I had made reservations. Made reservations several weeks in advance for a Saturday night stay at $77/night. Plans later changed and we would be arriving a day early needing to stay both Friday and Saturday. Called 800 reservation line to add Friday night to my reservation and was informed that the only rate available was $92. I verified that I would pay $92 for Friday and $77 for Saturday. "No sir! You are changing your reservation, therefore BOTH nights will be charged at $92", I was informed by the reservationist. To make a long story short, the supervisor I spoke with next confirmed that because I wanted to say another night, my rate would be increased for BOTH nights to $92. In all my years traveling I have never heard of such lunacy! If the original rate can't be honored for the additional nights, when adding dates, I have been charged the hirer rate for only the night(s) added. I then asked to make a reservation for Friday night only at $92, knowing I also had a reservation for Saturday at $77. The Supervisor then informed me that she GUARANTEED I would be required to check out by Noon on Satuday and not allowed to check back in unitl after 4:00 the same afternoon if I held the two separate reservations. Needless to say, I took my business elsewhere and will never stay at another Hilton or Hilton affiliate again. Bad business policies or uninformed employees: I don't have time or money to support either.
Enjoyed our stay.
We stayed here 7/04 for two nights. The rooms are two rooms suites. We found everything to be clean and comfortable. The breakfast was large with eggs, bacon, cereal, grits, yogurt, fruit and more. Coffee, hot chocolate and tea are available all day.
Excellent stay - June 2004
Stayed at the Homewood suites for two nights at the end of June 2004. The room was excellent and the management was very accomodating. I have stayed at numerous Homewood Suites and this is one of the best. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Nashville.
Loved Homewood Suites
We loved the Homewood Suites - airport location. It surpassed all of our expectations and more. A staff member of the hotel suggested a local restaurant called EllenDales just a few blocks away. It was the best dinner we have had in a long time! Would recommend this hotel and the area very highly.
