The glamourous Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University sits a moment’s stroll to the Vanderbilt stadium and an easy 10-minute walk to the Parthenon at Centennial Park. When you’re raring for some great Nashville sound, Music Row is under two-miles away. This gorgeous four-star soars 11-floors up with 305 guestrooms and six suites. Rooms come in one king or two doubles and include flat-screen TVs, a mini-fridge, marble bathrooms, and an evening turndown. Some rooms have a Parthenon view or a stadium view. Suites come in king-bed only and offer more square-footage and a pullout sofa. Upgrade to a concierge room and receive lounge access that serves breakfast and small plates at dinner. Onsite dining includes the Park25 (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and an onsite Starbucks.
The property has a gorgeous fitness room stocked with cardio, weights, kettle bells, and yoga balls overlooking a view. There is a fee for Wi-Fi but Marriott Rewards members receive free Wi-Fi. The Marriott has a first-come-first-served shuttle taking guests within a two-mile radius.
Nashville Marriott at Vanderbilt University sits 2.3-miles to the Country Music Hall of Fame, 1.4-miles to Music Row, and 2.8-miles to downtown Nashville.

Coming from someone who travels for work regularly, and is a loyal Marriott guest, I absolutely blown away by a sweet gentleman that is part of the maintenance team. His name is Dre and he is my hero! My very special opal necklace fell into the sink and slid down the drain at midnight. In sheer panic I called the front desk expecting them to say they couldn’t send someone to help until the next morning. To my surprise Dre showed up and I’m not gonna lie... I was in tears thinking I would never see my necklace again. The newly renovated rooms have wood paneling that hides the drain line of the sinks but he didn’t care. He didn’t what he had to do to fish my necklace out of the drain. I am forever grateful that Dre went above and beyond to help me and was so kind. You are a true Gem yourself Dre!!
During the same visit, Marshell (valet attendant) was extremely kind and friendly while taking care of guests Hustling to get in/out. It was raining and he still ran to get everyone’s vehicle, which was impressive.
Thank you for a wonderful experience during this trip!
