In town for the Nashville St. Judes 1/2 marathon. Due to availability I had to move hotels on the Sunday in order to get closer to downtown. Although no fault in the first hotel, I was especially impressed with the service, location and price of the second hotel, Hilton Garden Inn Vanderbilt.
There was a slight blip in my reservation upon check-in but I was very pleased with how courteously and professionally it was dealt with. My room had a bay window (the Evolution Room?) which, as long as you didn't look straight down into the carwash below offered sweeping views of the hills and the city skyline. Bed was incredibly comfortable and the complimentary breakfast (I think thrown in due to the slight blip) was outstanding with omelettes made to order. Shell mini-mart right across the street for snacks and drinks was nice
I know they offer a shuttle but I often prefer to walk (build up a thirst) and it is a safe 15 minutes to the heart of Broadway should you prefer to go this way. Given what was the price differential between being in the core and this location I feel this was excellent value for the money.
Finally, I booked an airport shuttle for 3 PM with the front desk on my final day. Although not concerned, by 3:02 the front desk staff was already following up by phone to see the cause of delay - very impressive.
Will not hesitate to stay here again and look forward to it because Nashville was a hoot.
