Courtyard Nashville Vanderbilt/West End Hotel Review: Opened in 1995, this reasonably priced, eight-story hotel welcomes guests with a beautifully lit, well-appointed lobby awash in lots of greenery and alight with the presence of a friendly, efficient staff. The property is just one mile south of downtown and even closer to Baptist Hospital, Music Row and Vanderbilt University, all of which contribute to the eclectic, budget-minded clientele. From sleeper sofas to cable TV, this hotel has a firm grasp on the standard amenity. Its Family Rooms are popular with folks with kids, its meeting rooms draw in business travelers, and both appreciate such little extras as the spa and a reasonably priced breakfast buffet.
