Loews Vanderbilt Nashville

Nashville, Tennessee

The hotel

Understated: Loews Vanderbilt Hotel Nashville has a quiet confidence in its location, style, and features. And quite rightly so. Just steps from Vanderbilt Uni and the recording studios that made Music Row (and indeed Nashville) famous, and a mile from the honky tonks where the studio sounds play out for all to hear, this Music City maestro celebrates Nashville’s past and present with cool poise and even cooler styling. They’ve thought of every traveller essential: complimentary WiFi, charging stations for your gadgets, and 24-hour fitness facilities in case sightseeing doesn’t wear you out. And, if experiencing Nashville’s sights and sounds does take it out of you, you can always retreat to enjoy Mason’s modern Southern dining, Ruth’s Chris Steak House’s prime beef, and Mason Bar’s pre-prohibition style drinks, served in its namesake mason jars under a mason jar chandelier.

I spent about 80 nights in hotels last year and am on pace to do the same this year. Everything from Fairmonts to Super 8s. I can count on one hand the number of stays that were memorable. Loews Vanderbilt is now at the top of the list (okay, maybe second on the list...the Fairmont in Ottawa is literally a CASTLE. They win the memorable category). To prove I am not biased or being paid off, I start with some criticism: it was very hard to find somewhere in the (standard king) room to put my suitcase while I unpacked it. Also, they haven't yet embraced the overhead lighting trend that has started in many hotels. Now the good y'all... literally everything else. No wait to check in. There was apparently a problem with my reservation but it was fixed immediately and with a smile. Lobby was clean and had a great vibe. Elevators may be the fastest I have seen in any hotel. My room was comfortable. Nice, inviting chairs, a good work desk, and crisp bedding. Bathroom was simple and stocked with nice-smelling toiletries - and an amazing hairdryer. I didn't try the provided robes, but the towels were great. I turned the television on once- they seemed to have the standard channels. My room was spotless the entire week. I loved the "please clean my room" hangtag they use to show housekeeping when you are out. One thing that wasn't bad but sorta weird... The towel I used as a rug on the bathroom floor was folded and left in the shower instead of replaced (different from most hotels' rule of taking everything you leave on ground). Not a problem but I have not seen that before. The housekeeping staff I encountered in the hallway were always exceedingly polite. I was there for a conference. The catered meeting food was hands down the best I have ever had. I will dream about the steak that was served in the lunch buffet they gave us. I did not use the onsite coffee shop or the free car service, but both got rave reviews from people at my meeting. The two onsite restaurants- Ruth's Chris and Mason- were superb. Great, safe location right at the Vanderbilt campus, and with several quick service restaurants an easy walk from the front door. A couple of staff members deserve special recognition here. First, the nice man in the gift shop. Loews is lucky to have an employee with such a great attitude. And Karen from social media... I sent in a question on Facebook and got both a quick reply and also a handwritten note and very thoughtful gift from her. In general, the hotel seems to really embrace feedback/questions/concerns as shown by their 'text if you need anything' policy and by the friendly concierges in the lobby. Not only would I not hesitate to stay again, I am already looking for an excuse to come back! Read less

The hotel was home base for a convention I was attending. The facility was clean, upscale and relaxing. The room was nicely appointed and very comfortable. The ultimate accolade belongs to the Management team that created an extremely positive customer service environment, at every encounter. The doorman remembered my name throughout the visit. The parking attendant was eager to relieve me of my marketing material and load them in my car. Raven at the front desk offered to print some materials for me. The waitress and bartenders were attentive, friendly and added to a great experience. As if this was not enough, a Ruth Chris Steakhouse was under roof a simple elevator ride downstairs. Read less

I attended a conference at this hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The food served on banquet buffets was much better than average. Parking charges seemed really high, but proximity to Vanderbilt U. likely explains that.

The manager at the hotel did not want to hear about our complaints, nor was he accommodating. They sent out fliers asking people to check out early as they were so busy. Knocked on the door and woke us up doing this

The staff always met us with a smile. The robes and blow dryers in the rooms were exquisite! The atmosphere, food, etc. were all wonderful. Will definitely stay here again! Highly recommended to anyone visiting the Nashville area. Did I mention the firepit outside?
