Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Nashville Hotel
Very nice hotel
This was a good stopping point between Dallas and Cleveland, and travelling with teenage daughters, we were glad to find a hotel that was easy to find and offered excellent room service to tired travellers. Arriving at approximately 6 p.m., the valet parking in front of the hotel can be confusing to say the least...my advice would be to head for the private structure directly across the street ($5 every time you exit [or $5/for 24 hours--we paid $3], compared to $18 valet--although that is a daily rate). If you choose the structure, park on the 4th floor, cross the sky bridge that connects with the 3rd floor of the hotel, take the elevator to the lobby and check in...then you can head back for your luggage after you've checked out your room. Otherwise, if you valet park, you'll need to tip the valet for unloading you, and oddly enough (the valet service is a private company), they take the luggage just inside the lobby and hand it over to the bell boys, who you'll need to tip again...so I recommend the structure.... In any case, as it happened, the first room we were put into had a non functioning toilet (we never take luggage up when we check in...we just head straight up, check the room, run the water, flush the toilet, etc.) -- found out about the toilet immediately, called down and asked for another room (they offered to send an engineer up but we declined). The staff accomodated our request and moved us to another room immediately. Everything functioned fine in the new room. We ordered room service; it was delivered promptly and the quality was suprisingly good. Probably the fastest and best room service we've ever experienced. Likewise for the room service the following morning. Very nice hotel. And a really great elevator...I'd read a review on trip advisor that criticized it...but, being from LA I guess, we really appreciate an elevator that gets you where you want to go and doesn't waste time (ok it drops like a bomb...but its not a problem)...And despite the fact that our stay was on a Friday night, the hotel was filled with nice quality people and very quiet. We recommend.
Very comfortable and friendly
Got our room on priceline for $80 using Bidding for Travel. Great hotel especially for seeing downtown. Upon checking into hotel, valet service (Charles) very friendly and gave us helpful tips. Room and view just lovely and hotel very clean. Concierge service also very helpful with directions which were needed due to freeways being closed down. Felt very safe in hotel and the area. good healthclub and pool area. Can't go wrong staying here.
Odd rules in Tn
Odd rules at the Nashville Renaissance.
We tried to arrange a rollaway bed for our 7 year old daughter to sleep on as we have 3 children.
According to the hotel we cannot have more than 4 people in a room, not very user friendly for any family over 2 children.
They stated fire rules, fair enough, however having a family sleep in two different hotels is not an option and this is what they suggested!
I am disabled and need my eldest's assistance sometimes.
It looks like we will be staying elsewhere, shame the conference is being held at the Renaissance.
This was to be the start a family trip of a lifetime.
A poor start.
Best place in Nashville
Everyone at the Renaissance was so kind. The hotel is beautiful, we stayed on the 21st floor and what a beautiful view of the city. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. We went to the Renaissance during the CMA Fest for the first time to Nashville and the staff was so very kind and helpful with all our questions. Thanks again Renaissance for making it so much fun
The rooms were wonderful, the view was great and the service fantastic.
The location can't be beat for seeing downtown. You can walk to Rymansand the Gaylord center, Eat at the Palm or Morton's. We even walked to a Titans game from the hotel. The food was adequate in the hotel, but the service in the restaurant was a little underwhelming.
Would stay again.
Nice view, but underwhelmed..
We arrived for one night - New Year's Eve. The hotel was easy to find by car and the valet services were very good. Check-in was a nightmare as they had the wrong information for my reservation. They had split the charge/reservation between my husband and me. When I had called and changed the reservation, they only changed part of it. The check-in person was very nice and helpful, but of course it had me worried that they would charge me extra nights. (They did not by the way, however, roomservice tried to make me pay cash because they kept trying to ring it under the wrong account due to the mixup - that took 30 minutes to straighten out). Our room was on the 22nd floor with a spectacular view. The elevators are AWFUL! G-Forces are not something I want or need in an elevator! Amenities were normal for a hotel of that type.
However, the rooms were very loud. I could hear everything the people said next door and in the hallway. You can imagine what that is like on New Year's Eve! Overall the hotel was okay, however, we will not stay there in the future. If staying downtown or near downtown, we will try Loew's Vanderbilt.
A trip advisor user,
We stayed at the renaissance the weekend of Dec12th. We drove down from chicago and advised the Hotel that we would be arriving in the am, we were told it was not a problem as we pre-paid and our room would be awaiting us. When we arrived we were told our room was cancelled for being a no-show, this was quickly rectified and we were given a room. The hotel was very nice but upon returning to our room we found that it had never been cleaned. We spoke to the hotel desk who stated they would look into the matter, well they never did get back to us and the matter went unresolved.Our room was cleaned the remainder of our stay, so other than those mentioned problems we did enjoy the property and it's excellent location in downtown Nashville and would recommend it to anyone.
Our favorite in Nashville, loved it
I can't say enough positive about this place. The hotel was beautiful, the employees accomadating, the restaurant lovely, the entertainment Frank and Diane, jazz) was exceptional. The price reasonable and the location perfect. The room was spotless, the view was outstanding and the fresh flowers throughout the hotel was uplifting. We loved it.
Really nice hotel!
My husband and I were really impressed with this hotel. The room was spotless and beautifully decorated. The hotel is within walking distance of almost everything.
First Class Hotel!!
Excellent downtown 1st class hotel!! Beautiful lobby area. Rooms are beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Room service menu is a bit limited but the service is very fast and pleasent! All the modern amentites one would need and expect a big city hotel. Close to all major attractions. A definite winner!!

... because of Lulu C. Naff one of the few businesswomen of this era. Known as the Carnegie Hall of the South, in 1943 Mrs. Naff signed a contract to rent the Ryman out on Saturday nights for a popular live radio show. This decision changed the course of history for the theatre and country music. During the Grand Ole Opry's residence from 1943-74 it was known as the "Mother Church of Country Music".

... probably picked cotton not far from here. I feel a separation. An us and a them. I dismiss it. The drive back starts with some photos in daylight in front of the Casino. The Yellow Camaro looks great, and I drive out of the car park and straight up an off ramp - the wrong way! Jock, Jock... Mark is yelling. We make it up the ramp and I drive across to the right hand side checking both ways. So easy to do. The highway drive is great. It's a beautiful day. The ...
... how random and quirky this trip is. We were taken on a tour of the distillery from the fermentation process to the bottling processes and the wax seal finish, the tour ended with a whisky sample session but as I am not a whisky fan and also felt a wee bit ropey from the night before I decided to pass on the sampling. Shock shock horror horror Michelle declined a drink :) After the tour we ate lunch in the car park and ...

We hit the road towards Nashville and its pretty much the same scenery as it has been all road trip. For those of you that know me well you would be aware that I have almost ZERO musical ability, playing an instrument, singing, dancing etc. Despite this lack of ability I have been known to give it a shot ...

Hattie B's (best hot chicken in the land..scratch that, the world)
I'm just going to transcribe the conversation between myself and the respectable employees of this fine establishment.
Me: So how hot is the "Shut the Cluck Up" hot chicken?
The Entire Kitchen (and some customers): "Oh Really? OK, this kid wants to die today alright! Wooooo!"
