Nashville update -- EPILOGUE

    Bought Bon Jovi tickets for Ms. Slappy next month in Nashville at the Sommet Center.
    Am looking for a nice place to stay and would like to surprise her and stay downtown, instead of going out to Hickory Hollow area or Brentwood. I'd also like it to be under 200 bucks -- which rules out anything Hilton...

    Never stayed there, never heard of it, but it showed up on hotels.com at $166 a night for a random two-night stay in the middle of April. Without exact dates, I can't help you much.

    PM me the dates if you want. I love finding hotels!

    Union Station is nice and a short walk down the hill to Sommet Center.

    There's a Courtyard by Marriott downtown and one near Vandy that are also good-n-cheap.

    Or you can stay at my parent's house if you promise to mow my dad's yard.

    The Hampton Inn near Vandy is a lot nicer than I expected and pretty cheap, if I recall. Seemed to be close to just about everything, too.

    My wife and I stayed at the Courtyard downtown in 2005. Great location. Ryman is right down the street as is Music Row. The food in that area leaves a lot to be desired (other than some pretty good BBQ restaurants). The food's much better near Vanderbilt. You can walk to the Sommet Center, too. It seems to me that your experience might be nicer if you stayed near Vanderbilt and took a taxi to downtown. It's pretty cheap, IIRC.

    That is by far my favorite Hampton Inn. And I'm an expert on Hampton Inns.

    I highly recommend the Opryland.

    Oh, it fails.

    I got my parents a room off priceline when they wanted to come visit me. Ended up at a Sheraton downtown, near my office. They had to move to three different rooms, including one that flat-out didn't have an a/c unit. Just a big hole in the wall to the outside.

    Their final room they took just because they didn't feel like fighting any more.

    Re: Nashville question

    bw, with all due respect, if you tell me I'm getting a room at a 2 1/2-3-star hotel, and that room has a massive hole in the wall and a terrible desk help situation...then you've failed. Either they don't keep up with the status of the hotels they recommend, or something. But that's a failure.

    Sorry, Princess. Since when do 2 1/2 star hotels have walls without holes?

    My wife and I love Hotwire, too.
    That's if you don't pledge allegiance to a specific hotel chain.

    Re: Nashville question

    I think it's probably the Best Western someone mentioned earlier.... right across from the state capitol building. (if it isn't a Best Western, it might be Days Inn). It's pretty much a plain room, but it's inexpensive and only a couple blocks walk from the show and Second Ave. bars.
