    Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Nashville at Vanderbilt University

    An Outstanding Experience


    What a great hotel! My bathroom was wonderful, large, marble, lots and lots of towels, as well as BodyWorks products. The buffet breakfast was excellent--anything on the menu, basically, along with the usual buffet fare, all for $11.95. The bed was fantastic; if there weren't so much to do, I would have slept the whole weekend. The front desk people were also very cordial and efficient. The only problem was the flushing mechanism on the toilet: it has some type of conservation device that requires frequent flushing and at one point (at 5:30 AM!) it wouldn't flush. They sent someone up within a half-hour and everything was taken care of. Finally, as a Priceline find--the room cost a total of $75 per night!

    Need to find a reason for business to take me back here!


    Stayed here in mid-June for work. Thought it was a really nice property. Room looked out over Vanderbilt. Everything clean and new. Only complaint might be parking. You have to have a valet park your car in the garage and as I remember it wasn't cheap. I would definitely stay here again, though. Enjoyed the stay.

    A pleasant hotel with nice up to date rooms.


    This is a bustling busy hotel property with many business meetings and Vanderbilt related activities. You can see the Vandy football arena from the rooms! Valet parking costs @$19 per night--lots of congestion in parking area but also lots of valet help to get your bags. Web internet on TV($9.95 for 24 hours) and pay per view movies available in all rooms. Hotel restaurant is ordinary but right out the door is an excellent Chinese restaurant and Wendy's. Room service is available.The rooms could use some updating especially in bathrooms. Our shower was leaking and only 2 towels were left per night. Located on very busy road so avoid at rush hours if possible.

    Service not up to scratch for a business hotel


    I've stayed here on a couple of occasions now & feel that although the location & fitness facilities are quite good (the pool is a bonus in Nashville), the service really isn't up to scratch. Laundry left with the front desk was not done (I had to take home dirty clothes when they finally located them) and room service trays left the night before were still in the corridor the morning after.

    Great hotel


    This was our first time in Nashville and I'm happy to say the Mariott at Vanderbilt turned out to be the perfect place to stay. The hotel is great and the location is wonderul. Centinenial Park is across the street (great for jogging or walking); lots of restaurants around.... Starbucks, Bread and Company, PF Changs, Flemnigs Steak house, all within the same complex. It also easy access to other areas of Nashville. Will stay here again should we return to Nashville. **Also try the hotel restaurant -- the food was great -- but very few diners the night we were there --made for a very quiet and enjoyable dinner!

    State-of-the-art, in prime location


    New, modern hotel in a prime Nashville location -- on the Vanderbilt campus, across from beautiful Centennial Park, adjacent to nice restaurants and shopping, and a short 5-min taxi ride to downtown and fun night spots. An excellent Marriott property.

    Super Hotel, great location!


    Great hotel, very convienent location, very close to Vanderbilt hospital. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Loved the indoor pool, very relaxing. Will stay there again next time in Nashville.

    Awesome Hotel, great location!


    Stayed over the weekend at the Marriott by Vanderbilt, went to the UK/Vandy BB game. Great location, right next door to the arena. Staff was friendly, rooms were very clean. Did not eat at the restuarant, it looked very nice though, had dinner at the PF Changs Chinese place next door to the hotel, great! Will stay there again next time I'm in Nashville.

    Great place to stay!:)


    When my friend and I decided to attend Fan Fair in June 03, we decided to stay at this hotel. When we first arrived, we were immediatly impressed with the hotel lobby- very nice. The customer service was excellent, and they offered shuttle services into town to help us in getting around to the fan fair events. Our room had a gorgeous view of the Parthanon, and there was a Wendy's right across the street which cured late night hunger! I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Nashville- and especcially Fan Fair. Having it been our first time to the city, the hotel staff was very helpful and we will definately be returning for future Fan Fair vacations!

    Very Nice Property


    Well appointed hotel with an excellent staff. Rooms are very new. Excellent experience on the club floor. Great location.

    ... you like that stuff, check it out.

    We arrived in Nashville around 330ish. Paul no sooner pulled into the parking spot at Opryland Resort and blew the tire. It hit a storm drain and blew big time. We all took a deep breath and went inside the resort to check it out and get our room. We left it for the time being because regardless we are here for two nights and apparently, we don't need to go anywhere once you step inside. It is incredible. It is nice too. ...

    Today we woke up at a normal time and had breakfast. After breakfast, we packed up and headed to our first activity, Escape the Room - Nashville. Yes we did it again as our first time we were paired with some veterans and didn't get to interact as we felt we should have. This time around we did a different room and had the whole room to ourselves and I ...

    A little line dancing and a little boot scooting

    ... people yelling back at their waiters and just generally it was like being back at camp with all the kids again. They even make hats for everyone with abusive comments on them. I haven't laughed that much during a meal for quite a while. Once we were all done we headed onto a honey tonk called the wild horse saloon. We had one reason for going there..... Line dancing. Obviously a must when in the country music capital. ...

    Three to get ready, now go cat go!

    ... lunch and music combination at Robert's Western, we raced back to the hotel to change ready for the main reason for us coming to Nashville. We changed into our best clothes, grabbed the car and drove out of the city towards Opryland on the outskirts. The enormous arena, home to the show that used to be hosted in central Nashville at the historic Ryman Auditorium, was our destination for the evening. We picked up our tickets for our VIP backstage experience and waited with the others ...

    Sleep is overrated

    A travel blog entry by elainesj on Aug 16, 2014

    After finally crashing at 3:30am and sleeping fitfully, 8am came around very quickly. I woke up feeling like a truck had hit me. Still, with ziplining in my future, I got my body down to the breakfast room as quickly as possible. The Sleep Inn was nice (I like their new fresh look), but the breakfast at this particular hotel was very uninspired. Normally, I'm happy to eat biscuits and gravy anywhere. Here, the gravy was a thin, watery slop that I ...
