Stayed at the Hilton Garden for a bachelor party. It's about a mile from lower broad/County Music hof. They have a shuttle. You can usually get a room for $139 before taxes. That's about the cheapest you'll find and closest.

Another suggestion is the Holiday Inn Vanderbilt. They have a shuttle to Legends Corner. The shuttle shuts down early so count on cab fare if you stay out past 8:00 pm.
The real plus for staying there is the parking. It is free. No valet to tip.

Good suggestion Hawk. I enjoy Legend's as it's not overrun with the younger crowd.

fyi, Prince's does not open till noon, but you should get there by 11:30 and wait outside with everyone else. Don't worry about the shooting that happened in the parking lot a couple weeks ago, it was at night. If you don't make it to Prince's, hit up Hattie B's for hot chicken (West End area).

Robert's is great as so it Layla's and the Station Inn.

Personally, I'm not a fan of Loveless, but it's not bad if you want to wait and hour of so. I'd recommend Arnold's on 8th avenue, but it is closed on weekends. So go to loveless and buy some jam and a t-shirt.


Did I say Loveless? I meant Arnold's Country Kitchen. -probably the only restaurant with "country kitchen" in the name that has won a James Beard award. BTW, Prince's Hot Chicken just won a JB award as well. -right up there with a bunch of high end restaurants serving haute cuisine.

I don't get to go to a lot of the good restaurants when the ol lady comes with me. Her family health history and her high cholesterol pretty much keeps us from a lot. If I'm by myself I can or if a restaurant has healthy stuff we go, but you get tired of the small list of options. Anyways thanks for the help fellas.

So I'm looking at the Nashville Airport Marriot. Seems to be close to a lot of things downtown. What do you guys in Nashville think about the location?

The list of where to *Not* stay is right on target. I'm also not a big fan of the White Bridge Rd. area, though I think it's been cleaned up quite a bit.

A lot depends on what you want to do. As far as eating, I'd suggest checking this site first:

If it's "gunfree," it's not for me! \:\)

That right off I-40 and Briley Pkwy. It is accessible to much of Nashville, though do not expect much in the way of character as far as the immediate location of your hotel: That area is all strip malls. If you just want a place to sleep that's within 15-20 minutes of downtown, that should be completely fine and reasonably safe/secure.
