Meet the Marriott Nashville Vanderbilt, a Stone's Throw from Honky Tonk Division Street


We arrived in Nashville on our first night in Tennessee quite late as we were being lazy (rightfully so) at the Jefferson Pools in Virginia for the previous two days and nights.

Our first Nashville “stay” was two nights at the Marriott Nashville Vanderbilt which is located on the Vanderbilt University campus. Marriott Nashville is noted as one of the area’s premier West End Nashville hotels.

There’s the typical range of amenities on offer including wi-fi, 32-inch flat-panel TVs, an indoor pool, the adjacent Park 25, featuring Chef Dean Donnell’s eclectic American menu, and the fact that it’s a stone’s throw from one of the main honky tonk drags in Nashville — Division Street. Below, one of their suites and below “it,” one of their more standard rooms.

The indoor swimming pool, which is a godsend regardless of what time of year you happen to be in Nashville.

While the property is not in downtown Nashville per se, it’s an easy 5 minute cab ride to pretty anywhere you’d want to go and an easy walk to Division Street as noted above, which is full of honky tonk venues and there’s also a range of restaurants nearby.

Below, is a shot of our room (we had a city view and a small balcony) before we headed out on the town one evening.

Below is the lobby area, which has a bit of a creative flare. Bottom line, if you don’t want to pay downtown prices, want a reliable and comfortable option a few minutes drive away, then the the Marriott Vanderbilt is a great choice. The staff is also quite knowledgeable about the area and able and willing to call venues to help you line things up and provide seamless directions to where you need to go.
