Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by eep82 Thin Walls - Don't expect a good nights sleep
Stayed for three nights (Wed - Fri), and was lucky enough to have a couple with a baby who cried non-stop through the night one room next to me, and a drunk couple who decided 2AM would be a perfect time to argue about their relationship issues in the other room next to me. Each room has connecting doors to the adjacent rooms, so noise travels really easily. Needless to say, I probably slept a total of 6 hours in the three nights I was there.
Value wise, the price was good for the location, and the bar downstairs was nice with good live music every night.
I am Gold member with another hotel chain, and only stayed in this hotel because it was sponsored by the conference I was attending. There is a reason I stick with them, as I never had an issue in any of their properties.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NAIAdad Vanderbilt area Holiday Inn was great
This hotel is very convenient to Vanderbilt in fact it backs up to the stadium. The Parthenon park is across the street. Many shops and restaurants within walking distance. The hotel was very soundproof and you could not hear any noise from the hallways or adjacent rooms. Our experience was good here but the price was what I would have expected for something newer. The room was in the start of showing its age. Our stay included breakfast in the restaurant ( was a group package). The service there was great and the food good. The kitchen was a little slow in keeping the buffet stocked.

I really appreciated the free laundry, the courteous reception, borrowing your umbrellas, accomodating up to four people per room, the music in the restaurant, and the clean comfortable beds!

So I've been searching for a hotel in Nashville for a few weeks. I'll be spending 9 weeks a year there and I wanted to find the right hotel. Well I finally found it here. The staff was very friendly and attentive. This is the only hotel I've ever been to where the doors close very quietly. I can't stress enough how important this is to me for sleep quality. The balcony was very nice. The A/C didn't get as cold as I liked it. The room service food was average. But there are lots of food choices in the area. I'll be staying here every time I come to Nashville.

This hotel has been my "home away from home" for 18 years. The quality of the staff and the room comfort is beyond compare. Everyone is very committed to making the guest experience the best that it can be. The location is safe and close to great restaurants and to Vanderbilt University.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ImmediateFamily Good hotel
We've recently been in the Nashville area dealing with family health issues over the past month or so. We've stayed all over town, trying to find that balance between cost and comfort, convenience to the hospital, and cleanliness. Much of this was necessitated by the day-to-day nature of our visits, and to the fact that at certain times, finding an affordable hotel that you would want your family to stay at in Nashville is next to impossible.
We arranged a room at a corporate rate with this hotel via patient family services at the hospital. Of all the places we stayed over the past month, this was the best overall, especially at the corporate rate, which made it an exceptional value. We stayed for two evenings and found the rooms to be comfortable, quiet, and absolutely spotless. I wish we could say that about many of the other places we stayed during our time in the Nashville area.
Unfortunately when we tried to extend for another night, most of the rooms were booked and they would only offer us the standard rate on the ones remaining, which was nearly 3x what we had been paying. So we had to change hotels AGAIN. I understand, after all, they are in the business to make money. But still, it was very frustrating to have to deal with searching all over the place on a night when just about every hotel is booked, yet again.
Overall it is a good hotel, well kept and maintained. But when things are busy in Nashville, it is almost ridiculously expensive for what you get. At the corporate rate, it was an exceptional value for us.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this Holiday Inn. Right in the heart of the Vanderbilt campus, but also easy access to downtown.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sleep deprived#817 Poor control of tobacco smoking and poor control of noise
This older style hotel still has internal doors between adjacent rooms. Those may partially explain the very annoying noise transmission between rooms. Not only does this place attract a very raucous clientele, they seem to cater to busloads of heavy drinking youngsters who return to the hallways at 2 am and seem to make every effort to bash down their friends' doors and punch holes in the walls that line their stumbling paths.
The good news? The air conditioning units are the antique window unit type; they make so much noise you can use them to try to mask some of the aforementioned ruckus.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SanSim333 Unlucky with neighbors. Cant believe I had to pay for this.
Sadly, bad neighbors that smoked and had friends visiting late into the night. Hotel staff tried to deal with them, however like children, these bad neighbors only listened while someone was watching. You pay high room rates for this location and unlike other hotels, you do not get breakfast. Hotel walls are thin. Hope you have neighbors with regular hours if you stay here.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cheesemonger2 Paper-this walls
I couldn't sleep due to paper-this walls and partying guests next door.
When I called the desk, they did call the room and ask them to be quiet - which they did - that night, but next night back at it.
Also restaurant turns into a music venue at night and only a very limited menu available in the lobby.
The room was clean and the hotel has a good location but I'll not stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Berrygirl Love Staying at this Hotel!
I've stayed at this property several times in the past two years. Each time I've been quite pleased with the comfort and excellent customer service. The location and convenience are a bonus. The coffee bar in the lobby is a welcome extra. For the first time we had a room with a king bed and loveseat rather than an easy chair and ottoman. The loveseat was comfy and inviting. We found it a better option than the easy chair. One minor limitation was the size of the bathroom. It was a little narrow and I couldn't avoid bumping my legs on the toilet while using the sink. An extra foot of space would have been welcome. However, I did like the shower/no tub arrangement. Much more practical than a tub/shower with a curtain. I look forward to another visit!

The staff at the Vanderbilt Holiday Inn was incredibly helpful and the room was great. We stayed at the hotel for 7 nights due to our child's surgery at the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. The staff went above and beyond to help make our stay perfect.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by havey noisy in halls and TV channel not able to view
can your bathroom pocket doors get any heavier?
the doors from the room to the hallways get slammed and they are extremly loud - put some signs up - that little door knob attachment does nothing anyway..
now on to the TV channel not available - heard everything from in contract negotiations to blaming the NCAA - could not watch any of my shows on TV due to CBS channel not being aired. Come on give me a break - ridiculous!
the staff at the front desk are wonderful.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by frequent express guests state employee
This hotel used to be a favorite when we were required to be in Nashville for meetings and trainings. However, it seems the upkeep is not a priority anymore. The elevators were out during our stay, our rooms were not completely clean, and the restaurant was so crowded you could not get in for breakfast. And this was after we had to reschedule our meeting because there are so few rooms offered at what the state will reimburse us for.

In town for business, this hotel is exactly what I come to expect in a Holiday Inn (HI Express). Quality is good. Bed is about average. Room was clean. This hotel did excel in staff, everyone was very VERY friendly, courteous and informative. It really makes a huge difference when you are traveling by yourself to have a friendly hotel staff that greets you. Big thumbs up for Joy, Allison, Barbara Jean and Henry. It's the staff that makes all the difference.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TXgirl2014 Perfect location for us
We had hoped to find a room in downtown Nashville for our first trip here - 3 generations of women - thinking we would be able to walk everywhere. But this hotel turned out to be the perfect location for our trip. We hopped the free shuttle service downtown to walk music row. We could walk to the Parthanon museum across the street. And the easy access to the major highways was a great plus for trips to Franklin, Murfreesboro, and The Hermitage. We would stay here again (our first choice next time). Clean rooms, friendly staff. We didn't eat in the hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Computer Lady Very Friendly & Accomodating Staff
We spent 2 nights at this Vanderbilt Holiday Inn. It was filled to capacity but the staff was anxious to answer questions and make sure we were satisfied. The bed was very comfortable. The room was clean and well stocked with toiletries & coffee. The shuttle was a definite perk. The drivers were very pleasant and knowledgeable about any questions we asked. My only complaint is the breakfast should have been included for the price of the rooms.

The staff at this hotel were very friendly and helpful! Their attitudes were pleasant and they seemed willing to go out of their way to make your stay more comfortable! The rooms were clean the beds were very comfortable! There is a card to fill out if you want extra items for your room which we did and received all items we asked for! The USA today newspaper at your hotel door in the morning is also a great extra! We did not eat lunch or dinner at the hotel but the breakfast buffet was wonderful! There are several eating places in walking distance (2-4 blocks) and there is also a grocery store about 2 blocks away! This was also an added convenience as the room has a microwave and refrigerator! Would recommend to anyone to stay here!
