Nashville is full of surprises. It’s an all-American destination with a full-sized Greek Parthenon, it’s a bustling state capital that doubles as a down-to-Earth college town, and it’s a city that’s best known for country. (Music, that is.) There’s quite a bit to take in, so when visiting, base yourself somewhere that keeps it simple. Wyndham Nashville is a comfortable, convenient retreat, with two seasonal outdoor pools, an indoor pool, two children’s pools, a playground and suites with a kitchen or kitchenette apiece – plus an address just five minutes from the Grand Ole Opry by car.
The hotel sits right on the edge of town, and all the other best sights, like the aforementioned Parthenon replica and the Country Music Hall of Fame, are just a slightly longer drive. All the major neighborhoods, like the Gulch and Downtown, are also within easy reach. Pick one, and spend the day uncovering its coolest joints for fried chicken or fruit tea, its most charming green spaces and its best performance venues. After all, with all the necessities accounted for back in your suite, you’re free to scout out the coolest new musicians – before the rest of the world hears about them.
No rooms here; just suites, all with respective kitchenettes, washers and dryers. Each is also comfortable, simple and conveniently furnished, with a minimum of two TVs (one in the bedroom and one in the living area) and a sleeper sofa.
Amenities- Full bath?- Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi- Cable TV- DVD player- Dining area- King bed in master bedroom- Complimentary local calls- Electronic/magnetic keys
Nicknamed Music City, U.S.A, Nashville is an international country capital, and you’ll want to swing by one of the famous venues – The Bluebird Café and Station Inn, for instance, along with the minutes-away Grand Ole Opry – when you visit. Another legendary attraction is the full-sized Parthenon replica (built for the 1897 Centennial Exposition), while an assortment of parks and gardens add a bit of green to the cosmopolitan destination. For a one-of-a-kind day trip, head to the Jack Daniel’s whiskey distillery, about an hour and a half southeast.
How to Get There
This is a nice quiet resort close to the action in Nashville with cheap shuttle service to downtown. But DO NOT get within 100 feet of a member of their sales staff. This is unless you like to waste your time and listen to alot of lies. We allowed them to waste our time, ruin our morning and miss our bus into Broadway. They were rude and obnoxious. Worst time ever at a Wyndham in regards to the sales pitch.
We were accompanying friends who were trying out Wyndham Timeshare. They checked in and were offered with $10 and $15 Opry tickets if we 4 sat in on the timeshare presentation, 90 minutes (that is the first lie you are told). We set the appointments for the following morning. The free breakfast is a simple buffet style of a few items, nothing worth hours of your vacation time. Needless to say we were stuck for 4 hours even though we kept telling our advisor we had to leave after 90 minutes. We watched a video, interactive pitch by one of their sales lady who tried to convince us how wonderful Wyndham is and spoke of working for a company of Ethics – go figure. Turns out they don’t mind sending people off into more debt after hearing repeated no’s to their pitch. They just kept making us wait, forcing us to view different resorts on the tv to try to persuade us, or making us tour the 4bedroom staged condo. We spoke to a few different people, many closers but we wouldn’t give in, as the offers went lower and lower. They basically try to force you to “invest” $20-30,000 that day however an investment grows in value with time. This is just a waste of your time. That’s like someone forcing you to buy a car in a matter of an hour!
By the end of it I was done mentally and didn’t want to have to EXPLAIN why I didn’t want to buy it, I just said “I’m not going to buy it.” I didn’t want to waste their time, but in fact they were wasting mine! I have a friend with Wyndham who hates her maintenance fees going up and up. By the end of it all they do send someone in to take an Exit survey, really? We got our Opry tickets and left. We would just pay the full ticket price next time! Don’t waste your time with the presentation. This ruined our day!
Our friends stayed a FULL 8 hours, they kept telling them no but they wore them out. Waste of a day for us and them! Why would a company selling VACATIONS waste your vacation with sales pitches! On top of that they made us fill in info to see what incentives we would receive and now we have their dumb credit card coming, which I will cancel!
The property – dated, thin walls, kitchen was dirty and had ants, chair was torn, and carpet was stained. Resident deer was nice to see, as it is set in suburbs away from the city. Building 19, 2 bed/2 bath suite was fine for 4 but a bit tight with 6. Kitchen was tiny. Location is super close to the Opry and Gaylord resorts. We recommend Mission BBQ nearby, and the Monarch shuttle from hotel to downtown Nashville is $10 per person per day. They pick up every hour. We recommend a show at the Opry and seeing Broadway.
AVOID TIMESHARE PRESENTATION!
The next Wyndham we stayed was Great Smokey Mountains - larger suites and cleaner!
We love this resort! For us, it is the best location in Nashville! It's tucked away in a priviate feeling corner of the world, but it is literally right next to all of the action. Directly across the street from the Opryland Hotel, the Opry House and the Opry Mills shopping mall, there is a lot to do in the neighborhood. If you want to go downtown, the hotel has a shuttle that will drop you off! It's great to avoid driving in the traffic and paying for parking. And the Nashville Hop On Hop Off trolley, along with other tour buses to local attractions, will pick you up right at the resort, for various activities, and drop you off at the front door when you are done. The resort itself is very comfortable, spacious units, beautiful pools, helpful staff. We can' wait to return!
