    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.

It houses a huge Bass Pro Shop, a hotel, the Ducks Unlimited Water Fowling Heritage Center Museum, a 32 story high outdoor observation tower and a realistic indoor Cypress Swamp habitat inhabited by live ducks, catfish, sturgeon and alligators. I had decided to stay at the RV park to do a little laundry ...

    Well, we will see what’s in the cards for tomorrow. We will have to come back here someday, because there is far too much to see and do for the short time we will be here. Also, with Harley and no A/C we are ...

    ... it's only my iphone in my pocket etc) that it was a fun 10minutes. The main strip in Nashville is like a smaller version of Las Vegas or New Orleans with all the neon lights - it looks great. Every bar has a live band but some are really crowded, we find a quiet one in a side street and the band is really good even if it is country. We walk further on and stop at a cowboy boot store, Peter, of course, wants ...

    ... While some of the group headed back to the campsite, the rest of us carried on to WannaB's Karaoke/club. No karaoke for us, but we did bump in to some of the guys and gals from the other group who did sing. A few more drinks later, because clearly we hadn't had enough, we headed home around 1:30am. I fear that during the course of this trip I'll either get really sick by abusing my liver or become a raging alcoholic!! Next stop the Appalachian Mountains and Washington ...

    ... So I go in introduce myself and leave them with a CD. All in all I think it was fine, I didn't babble too much! Could never imagine going that in London though, they would never let me through the door. Walked back through The Gulch, it's meant to be the hipper area of Nashville. I went into 2 old hippies, which is pretty cool as they do some scenes there for ABC's Nashville. Everything was soooo expensive and ...
