Great! CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, LOVED IT!.
I personally enjoyed this hotel. My husband and I stayed here for our Anniversary because it was near Silverados. The lobby was nice, the room was spectacularly clean, the bed was the most comfortable I've ever slept in (including my own). It is by the airport and of course you are going to get NOISE near an airport but it wasn't unbearable. The lounge was very nice, clean, great entertainment. When we first pulled up to the hotel it was a little uneasy feeling because of the part of town it was in. We had absolutely no problems, everyone staff, other guests were super friendly. Locals were friendly. A BIG PERK. They took us to Silverados (a local country dance hall) and picked us up, so we could relax, drink and not have to worry about driving or renting a cab...
The only bad thing I have to say is that when we got back to the room after midnight, we wanted something to eat and dialed Room Service and the phone rang and rang and rang...
I highly suggest this hotel.
Look elsewhere, first time staying here and was disappointed, the website painted a different picture than my actual experience.. The best offering of this hotel are the beds and newly remodeled rooms and that's about it. The location is not convienient and directions somewhat confusing. The pool is your typical rectangular shape and is small in size. The wireless internet service is a daily charge of $9.00, less expensive hotels offer this service complimentary. Hotel is not located in an ideal location, very rough neighborhood surrounds the hotel with less than desirable characters walking around the grounds. I was surprised to find out that when arriving at the hotel at 9:30 p.m. on a Saturday night that there were no parking spaces for myself and that many of the parking spaces were filled by local people non-guest of the hotel visiting the hotel bar and dance floor. I demanded a parking space since I had a parking permit and space was included in my room charge. What is the point of a parking permit if local people fill the parking lot without a permit? I was also not pleased to see basically street thugs hanging out in the lobby when I finally got my parking space and entered the hotel.
Not what I expected. Upon arrival we see the lobby under construction, carpet ripped up, ceiling torn up and construction lights hanging all over the place. It would have been nice to have been informed of the renovations to the lobby upon making the reservations. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Unfortunately, the walls and windows are not sound proof. From about 7:30am until 6pm we could here construction workers on the 4th floor drilling, sawing, etc. This didnt bother us to bad as we were out of the room by 11am and didnt return until 9pm. Well, at 8pm the band in the lounge starts up and on the third floor we could hear every note and lyric. On top of this every time a plane would take off or land it would shake the window. I guess I cant complain too much being that this is a glorified Clarion. Would I stay here again, NO. It seems to be a popular place for those not wanting to pay the high rates at Opryland and those not interested in downtown/midtown Nashville. Also, the hotel is located in a pretty sketchy part of town. If you're looking for a cheap airport layover hotel or an alternative to Opryland then this place will probably serve you well. Otherwise pay the extra money and stay at Union Station, Lowes vanderbilt, etc.
Overall the Best Hotel period end of story! Best Beds, Starbucks in room, Bathrobes, Pet Fish, Cookies...... I just reread my review from 1/11/05 and had to laugh......I voted this Best Weekend Getaway for a very good reason people! Yes it's unique, has a cool vibe and is really romantic, but apparently it helps with conception too!!!!! We didn't make it back for New Year's 05 because my daughter was three months old at the time!!!! You do the math....We sure did celebrate New Year's weekend 04 at the Hotel Preston and brought our four month old daughter back to celebrate Valentine's 2006. The relaxing environment and I'm sure fabulous cocktails made for a New Year's we will never forget and we go back now for Weekend Breakfast with Santa at Opry Mills and shopping at the Children's Place. You Go Hotel Preston!!!!
We love this hotel!.
If you are only in Nashville for the weekend make sure you book this hotel. The location is not the best but once you step inside its worth the trouble. What a fun place to stay. The rooms are nice yet don't smell all that great (its an old building) and there is a great little bar downstairs. Make sure you utilize all the extras that the hotel offers...from complimentary to over the top packages everything is worth it. I usually go ahead and reserve a lava lamp and fish for me when I book because they always seem to be out of those. And before heading up to your room check out a cd from the front desk.
They have a complimentary shuttle within a 5 mile radius which I think is great.
pampering and good service. Stayed at the Hotel Preston to "get away" but not too far away ... and was not disappointed. They strive to be different and are. Really good service, great room, great bed (and linens), the restaurant was good, the staff in the restaurant was great (and nice and talked either just enough or not at all depending on what I wanted), the bar was good (but the bartenders were GREAT), the pool could use some pizazz, but overall it was nice -- and their whole goldfish/lava lamp schtick is cool. They also stand by their promises, i.e., if you want milk and cookies, they'll bring it. Had a great massage while there, too. It's great. And, hey, they can't help that Briley Parkway is a nightmare, right? Stay there! You won't be sorry.
BEST BEDS I'VE SLEPT IN!!. MY HUSBAND AND I WENT FOR OUR ANNIVERSARY, TO AVOID THE HIGH PRICES AT THE OPRYLAND HOTEL. IT WAS LOVELY....THE ROOM THAT IS. THERE IS ALOT OF CONSTRUCTION OUTSIDE SO THE VIEW IS SHOT. NO HOT TUB, NO INSIDE POOL. FOOD GREAT!!! THE BAR, WELL ITS A HOTEL BAR, NOT MUTCH TO SAY!!! AS FAR AS SURROUNDINGS FOR THE PRICE ITS GOOD BECAUSE YOU ARE CLOSE ENOUGTH TO DOWNTOWN TO ENJOY A NIGHT OUT. AND THE HOTEL OFFERS FREE SHUTTLE RIDES TO AREA ATTRACTIONS!! THE BEDDING IS AWSOME, BIG WHITE AND FLUFFY SHEETS, PILLOWS, AND BLANKETS!!! LOVE IT!! BASICALY IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO BE CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN BUT NOT PAY DOWNTOWN PRICES STAY HERE AND WANT GOOD QUALITY AND NICE GERM FREE ROOMS, STAY HERE!!!!!
Great Hotel. Everytime I have stayed here, I have loved it. The only drawback is the location. Not near much and in the middle of a construction zone. But, that does not stop me. Great weekend getaway. It's such a great experience each time.
great !. The room was extra clean. The beds the best thing next to home. The staff frendly and very helpful. I will stay here again.
best hotel in nashville.
My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon and frequent this place during trips through Nashville - we have nothing but positive things to say about Hotel Preston! The rooms are beautiful & stylish, the beds are so comfortable, and it is in such an ideal location (right off the interstate) - be sure to order room service - we especially loved having breakfast in bed!
We definately recommend this hotel if you are looking for high quality for a great price.
