07/03/2009DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Nashville Downtown
I stayed at the hotel for a few days recently. The first thing that I noticed was the location of the hotel. It is in the middle of a business oriented area. During the day there are a lot of people walking around but after 4 o'clock or so 95% of the people is gone. When I asked the hotel personnel where everybody was, they said that it is like that everyday. Well I was not looking to be in the party town of US but I was expecting a little more life. It is a very quite place, if that is what you are looking for during your vacation. The valet I believe the see so many people during the day that they have a very undesirable neutral attitude. Because I was driving a company car I was uncomfortable with the idea of somebody else driving my vehicle. So the valet did not waist time to tell me that there was a public parking across from the hotel. It was not across from the hotel it was about 200 yard from the lobby entrance. This is just to the entrance of the parking lot and then you have to park. When I finally decided that it was not a good idea to walk that far with all my thing the valet guy continued asking me all this questions even when I told him to give me some time while I put my things together. It was very annoying. When I was ready then he took his time finishing with other vehicle and making me wait. The hotel has a pool on the 2nd floor and a gym. The gym is not bad and the pool is O.K. The room is another story. I have been in cheaper hotels that offer more that this one. The TV programs were very limited, the bathroom was very uncomfortable and there was not refrigerator for whatever you may want to save for later. You are force to either walk to a place where you can buy things that would not go bad or to buy directly from the hotel at their prices. The front desk I have to say was very nice and attentive. Also the bellboy crew was very nice and helpful when I ask about the foot. I think they understood the problem with the location and most certainly other guess probably have asked the same questions. There is a fairly good walk that you can take to Broadway (It just last about 3 blocks of almost fun). If you are a bar person, that likes to sit at the bar and drink, while listening to some cheap music well have at it. Do not expect Broadway to come back to life until late at night. I found out that the places to eat late in the day or at night are very few and the menu can be very good and expensive or limited and cheap. Bottom line the hotel looks good but because of the other factor for me it is not worst the price luckily the company was paying this trip. Broadway probably was good on other time; it did not look that good for me, so not big deal. Up to you what you would like to do...
01/29/2014Best Western Plus Music Row
The Best Western Music Row is probably the prettiest Best Western I've ever set foot in. Stepping into the lobby is a bit of a shock because the interior is so posh and elegant compared to the boring, cement exterior of the building. It's like stepping into a tank and finding a penthouse. The place is within walking distance of BMI, ASCAP, and a host of other Music Row powerhouses, as well as the nightlife district on Demonbreun Street near Buddy Killen Circle. It's also a short jaunt over to The Gulch. All the rooms come with thoughtful little amenities like a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, and safe, so it's the perfect place to relax and grab a bite after a hard day of sight-seeing.

You get your bang for your buck. It's a $60 a night hotel. I'm realizing some of the comments come from guests who don't realize that. The staff isn't going to suck up to you, and there's no complimentary champagne on check in. The bed was clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly, and it's centrally located. It can use an upgrade, sure, but can I stress it's a $60 motel? It only cost us about a $7 uber ride go get to downtown.If you're looking for an easy and cheap place to crash, this is your spot. If you're a weirdo and want to spend time in your hotel while you're visiting places, fork over $200 a night and stay at a resort.
01/22/2014Best Western Plus Music Row
If you come to Nashville for the music industry, you have to stay at the Best Western Music Row. You're a stone's throw from major players in the music business, and centrally located to all of the live music and nightlife in town. The room is pretty basic, but not bad considering the location. Free hot continental breakfast is provided (woohoo!), and you're in walking distance to entertainment and dining on Demonbreun Street and in the Gulch. If you have downtown plans you'll need to take a cab or drive on your own, but there is plenty to do in the general vicinity of the hotel.
We were helped immediately during check in and was told about internet (strange it worked great), ice machine (close by), parking (free), breakfast hrs ( 6-9, surprisingly, potatoes, sausage and strange powdered eggs with the usual fruits bread, juices and coffee that wasn't too bad) and some helpful hints on directions. Place is being painted and looks like some remodeling going on. No noise from that. Good bed, hot water pressure good and no noise problems (we stayed farthest from the freeway)
