I've never been to Nashville and I'm a little overwhelmed by all the hotel options. I'd like to stay in a hotel that is central and gives me good sense of what Nashville is like. I'd love to know where locals tell their friends to stay when they visit, and why those areas and hotels are special. thanks!
We have stayed by Gaylord Opryland Resort and downtown. I would much rather be by Opryland. Downtown wasn't what I would expect it to be. Nashville isn't that hard to get around, so you can stay on the outskirts and still be close enough.
