The airport area offers the best rates as it is the most competitive area for hotels. Parking is free, the area is safe and serves as a good location to get around the Nashville area. Almost all downtown and West End hotels charge for parking and cost more to stay.
I have enjoyed stays at the following in the airport area- Club Hotel and Suites, Sheraton, Marriott, Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Courtyard by Marriott, Residence Inn, Radisson among others. I have also stayed at Fairfield Inn but this one is an inferior Marriott property.
Finally, search for a 3 star hotel or above on Priceline and you can usually catch a good rate.
Just got back from several days in Nashville. There are at least 3 Hampton Hotels in Nashville. I am aware of one downtown, at the airport and in the West End/ Church Street area at the ole Father Ryan school site. There may be more, but I do recall having noted all three of these. I have not stayed overnight at any of these three, but they are in good locations. It simply depends upon what your purposes are in selecting a hotel.
Each of these three is located in areas that are generally safe and business and tourist friendly.

We stayed at the BW DT. The hotel was nothing special (although I did like having a micro wave, coffee maker, and frig), but the location was great and the staff were wonderful. The parking was free, and IIRC, breakfast was included.
As noted above, the airport area has many good choices; it's a quick drive to downtown (except at rush hour).
The Comfort Inn on Demonbreun has free parking and is near the music row attractions, though the area isn't good for walking around at night. I stayed there in November; our room was just fine, but I did note that many recent TA reviews are quite negative.
The West End (Broadway, West End Blvd) is a good choice for a short straight shot into Downtown, but your preference, Hampton is under renovation there, and has temp. limited parking. The Holdiay Inn, West End is nearby, and has free parking. The benefit of this location is the neighborhood, which is safer and within walking distance of good restaurants. www.holidayinn-nashville.com
Have a good visit in Tennessee!
