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.
A/C Needs Maintenance
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.
The room looked lovely as it did before. However, the Air-Conditioner was making so much noise! It sounded like a freight train rolling through the room. The room vibrated from the sound.
We called the front desk and they said the Maintenance man was out driving the shuttle van and would come and check on it when he returned. An hour or so later he showed up. He said the A/C units were all 7 years old and all made lots of noise and that he must be honest and tell us that nothing could be done about it.
There was no other room to move us to because the hotel was sold out! So, we checked out and left.
The front desk was pleasant and understanding about our dilemma.
We were very disappointed not to be able to stay at what was previously our favorite hotel in Nashville.
I can no longer recommend it to anyone because apparently they have A/C issues that cannot be fixed.
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.
Would stay there again
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).
The only drawback was that our room was very far from the main desk and the only 2 elevators so we had a good walking distance everytime we went out. The day we arrived we asked if they had a rolling cart for our luggage and they did, they told us to just take it. Would have been thrilled after a 14 hour drive to have had them assist us. I returned the rolling cart and inquired about a high chair for our room and was told that they have some in the dining area and to just help myself. Again, the long way back to our room carrying a high chair was not my favorite part.
Overall I very much enjoyed the hotel and we would stay there again.
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.
Don't be put off be central reservations
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.

... information to read and marvel at. We were also given an audio guide, which gave extra anecdotal information about many of the exhibits. We saw Dolly's dresses, boots belonging to Alan Jackson, a huge display dedicated to Kenny Rogers, dresses worn by winners of the CMAs and cowboy hats a-plenty! There were constant snippets of music being played, interactive video exhibitions and, behind glass panes across from the exhibits, huge archives chock-full of even more memorabilia, as ...

Somehow, the house seems smaller. The front door is red now. Later, we ...

I hassled her about her order while I ate the complimentary cornbread that came with my dinner. If ...

The home of country was remarkably dancing to the beat of an R&B drum as all the pretty young things from the local campus and suburbs flooded the street to take-on the tourists. Bars with names such as Bootleggers, Whisky Bent Saloon and Honky-Tonks blared out loud and brash chart-toppers from up to the minute artists which just felt strange - it wasn't what we had come here for and we didn't seem to be the only ...
