Excellent area and friendly staff.
Hotel was in great walking distance to most major attractions and broadway district. The bed was super comfortable and the shower was great. Wi-fi worked well too. Hotel staff was very friendly. Very nice free breakfast with lots of sitting room.

Fair 4.0
Old and musty
They have tried to update this hotel but have failed. Looks like they started and ran out of money maybe. The rooms smell musty, there were stains on the pillows, furniture old. Not a great area of town either. Most expensive hotel during our stay and would not recommend to anyone and would not return.
Judy, ca2 night romance trip
Good 6.0
One night stay in Nashville
World's smallest hotel room. We had four people in a two bed room, and it was TIGHT. Like stacking suitcases so you've got room to move TIGHT. Furniture in the room showed some wear & tear and could use a refresh. Only one slow small elevator as well, so you'll be taking the stairs quite a bit. Valet parking is the only option if you are going to park at the hotel.
