Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University

Nashville, Tennessee

The hotel

Giving you a unique take on Nashville, staying ‘on campus’ at Vanderbilt University means you get to experience buzzing Music City like an undergrad – albeit one with better digs and free use of a fitness centre. Your setting lets you immerse yourself in the soul, spirit, and soundtrack of this sweet-sounding city, with sights like The Parthenon and Centennial Park within walking distance, and downtown destinations just a free shuttle trip down the road. And you can return for beer, cocktails, and American dishes around the flatscreen TVs at Park25 Bistro, in a swish setting that’s a far cry from a uni canteen.

Spent a few days in Nashville and we decided on the Vanderbilt Marriott. Great choice. If you are visiting the college, its a short walk and... located just in front of the Vanderbilt football stadium.

Stayed here recently for a quick trip in and out of town. Location is perfect, parking is very expensive but there is metered parking nearby. Check-in was swift and friendly. the room was very nice and clean. I would definitely stay here again.

I keep visiting here hoping my experience will change, but I think I'm done. Fourth visit in the last two years. Long line to check in (15-20 minute wait) and Armon at the front desk was not the least bit apologetic, empathetic, or engaging. No acknowledgment of my titanium platinum status. My room preferences were ignored or, according to the front desk agent, "didn't transfer over from my Marriott record to the hotel reservation". Again, no apology. I asked about the concierge lounge to which he curtly replied "it's closed for renovation". The property should've figured out a way to provide some sort of compensation or temporary substitute. Elevators were glacial in their responsiveness. My room phone rang twice, once at 4 AM, and once at 4:30 AM with no one on the line. At checkout, I was charged for valet parking even though I took in over to the property. When I asked the front desk how they decided to charge me, no apology, just "it must've been a mistake. We'll take it off." Front desk staff could definitely use some lessons in customer service. . Read less

This is my second time to stay at this Marriott hotel and another great experience, despite it going through a remodel. The staff is always friendly and very helpful! Located to may great restaurants and Vanderbilt! Specifically, I wanted to recognize the gentleman who was tending bar on Aug. 6th, Medhat. He was the only one tending in a room full of guests at the bar!!!! He he had a smile on his face even though people kept bombarding him with questions and asking for drinks! He kept his cool and remained very professional! Well done Medhat! Read less
