Millennium Maxwell House Nashville
Travel Blogs from Nashville
We started this morning with a tour of Nashvile, led by a local lady (full of 'oh i tell you' 'we're miiiiighty proud' and 'y'alls'. We crossed the city, checking out sporting arenas, country row, parklands and historical sites. Tennessee I think is my favourite state of all so far. It's such a pretty state, and Nashville is a really clean town. …
Continuing from yesterday, much of today has been about Elvis
We arrived at Graceland, the home of the King first thing this morning
You start across the highway at the visitor centre (6 exhibits with adjoining gift shops - FOR EACH ONE!) and then shuttles took us across the highway into Graceland itself (named after previous …

Nashville is the unexpected jewel in the heart of Tennessee.
After a good night's sleep, Mel and I started our explorations by hitting up the Pancake Pantry. Though the line was out the door, the food was worth the wait. Our server played the down-home waitress very well. She made some excellent recommendations, including sweet potato …
... Sun Studio, and finally Graceland (no picture included). Then we took what we'd looked forward to - a ride down the Mississippi on a sternwheeler. Well we actually just floated around within sight of Memphis while we received a local history lesson - very well delivered by a lively and entertaining southern coloured gentleman. Fascinating. Then we drove to ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
We stayed here for two nights with a large tour group.
The lobby regularly has musicians playing and there is wifi available in the lobby. Dont bother with the wifi in your room - it isnt worth the hassle. The rooms are well appointed with lovely smelling toiletries. The shower curtains are TERRIBLE and resulted in water flooding the entire bathroom.
All the staff were friendly and welcoming. The shuttle into the city is a great service, especially since the hotel is a bit out of town. We had the breakfast buffet on our last morning and there were heaps of options

Great Place to stay
I stayed three nights while on business, hotel was nice, staff was great and very friendly, however the only negative would be the distance from downtown, not far just isn't in downtown so a little distance between the tourist "traps". Room was nicely decorated with sink outside bathroom so nice for 2 people trying to get ready, room had a chair with ottaman for ability to watch tv without having to be in the bed. Overall great place to stay for the price.
Good Nights Rest!
My husband and I travel quite a bit and know hotels. This hotel is nice, clean and comfortable. The room was nothing extraordinary but it was quiet and the bed was comfortable (which is very important to me). There was a nice work area in the room and a comfortable lounger/chair. Bathroom was very small but how much time does one really spend in the bathroom?? It was only a 3 minute drive to downtown but you may want to take a cab considering parking was hard to find and it's about $10 to park anywhere and then you're left walking anyway.
We stayed at this hotel for a week in May 2004. It is about 2 miles from downtown. Taxis are apparently very high between downtown and the hotel (someone told us he paid $18 US one way in the evening); however, the Millennium provides a complimentary van shuttle service between the two, as well as the airport, and Opryland which is about 15 miles away (twice daily at a scheduled time). This was a greatly appreciated service and run by pleasant young men.
Many other hotels in Nashville better
This used to be the best hotel in town. That was many years ago. It has been badly maintained. Parking lot is crumbling. Rooms were designed badly in the first place. Needs new carpet. New management. Etc.
Why would anyone stay here unless every other decent hotel in town were full? Stay at even a Hampton or Drury over this place.
We stayed at The Milleninum Maxwell Hotel while in Nashville. The shower was mold ridden. The sink was cracked and leaked onto the carpet below. We were charged $6.00 for one piece of toast, when surrounding Hotels offer, at minimum, a continental breakfast.
This past weekend I attended my cousin's wedding at the hotel. We also stayed there for the weekend. I was looking forward to getting out of the city and enjoying some southern charm. Upon arriving to the airport, we called the complimentary shuttle service that runs every 10 minutes. We waited about 50 minutes before the shuttle showed. We were understanding until the driver stated that he had just been dispatched 10 minutes ago. We arrived at the hotel at around 5pm. At check in we were told that our room wasn't ready. Instead of giving us an estimated time and offering us a drink in the bar, the very rude front desk person pretty much just ignored us. I asked to speak to the manager, but was informed she was away. After about 1 hour, a lady, who identified herself as the manager spoke to us. She had been sitting there the whole time and obviously didn't view us as important guests. After 2 hours, we finally checked into our room. Might I add, they didn't even offer to store our luggage.
We recently stayed in this hotel for 3 days. We had 2 very unclean rooms. My sons white socks were almost black from the dirt after only a little while walking on the carpet, and this was in both rooms, there were also peanut shells under the bed. The air conditioners were emitting a sewer odor that the manager didn't even investigate. And lastly the person checking us in told us calls were $1 for the first half hour and 10 cents a minute thereafter for local AND long distance, yet the bill for the 2 rooms was $127 at check out. When we complained to the manager she said the clerk made a mistake quoting the rates like she did and offered to cut the bill in half. Considering it was the clerks mistake, I refused to pay any more than the original quote which she eventually agreed to. There were also other problems with the staffs lack of organization.
Attractive Hotel--Needs More Attention To Detail
This is a nice hotel that could be a magnificent hotel with a little more attention to detail. Lobby is very attractive and welcoming and staff is very friendly.
Bedroom area itself is pretty decent. Beds are very comfortable.
However, the smaller details leave a lot lacking: 1. coffee maker took forever to brew 4 cups of coffee; 2. bathroom needs a major OVERHAUL.
My friends' room was the same. Peeling wall-paper, stains on the tub, dirty caulking etc. 3. Lamp between beds didn't work.
Don't get me wrong; I'd stay here again. I just think it's time to sink some money into renovations.
Great place, great people
I spent the weekend at the Maxwell house a few weeks back. It was perfect. The service was great, free rides to and from anywhere, perfect dining suggestions, and the room/view are nicer than your "average" hotel. Try to meet Jimmy if you make it there, and find out about some hidden Nashville secrets.
Great Place, Great Deal
My husband and I have stayed at the Maxwell House three different times in the past year, and we always look forward to returning to it. The rooms are in good taste, very clean, and comfortable. We feel the hotel is a well-kept secret, sitting in an isolated part of the city but yet only a couple of minutes drive to the capital and downtown. The staff is very courteous and they treat you like family. The breakfast buffet is so good that we didn't even think twice about missing out on eating at The Pancake Pantry, a local favorite.
