If you are looking or expecting The HILTON or The WALDOROFF....DON'T stay at the Drake Hotel.
If you're looking for a an older hotel where celebrities have stayed and films and music videos have been filmed.....then THE DRAKE HOTEL is for you! This pleasantly kitschy hotel was probably a hit in its hay day......Dolly Parton stayed there and other up incoming country western stars.
Try to get or asked for one of the mural rooms......the room I had was The Elvis Presley Room......two murals of The King on each side of bed!
The front desk staff were accommodating and FRIENDLY....one friendlier than the next!
BUT BEWARE......the area and neighborhood THE DRAKE is located in is NOT one of Nashville's finest.......if you're driving you'll be fine. You are warned not to walk around at night AT ALL!
The Lane Auto Museum is within walking distance as is one of Nashville's finest steak houses ......during the day you're fine to walk around but NOT AT NIGHT!
The location is conveniently very close to DOWNTOWN Nashville maybe 2 or 3 miles.........but DO NOT WALK THOSE 2 or 3 miles AT ALL! There is a city bus stop close to the hotel about a block away...walk no further!!
All in all.....if you are on a budget THE DRAKE HOTEL is the place for you......if you extremely fussy and expecting a 5 star hotel.....do yourself and the hotel a favor stay (and pay for) The Hilton or The Omni!
My stay was fine and very pleasant.
I would recommend THE DRAKE HOTEL just know the pros & cons!
Could not walk without shoes
Floor was dirty for real
Pool was closed had we known that we would have went
The pool was for us but it was very dirty leaves and bugs floating on the water
When you walk in the pool it stirred up sediment such that it clouded the water
Not a good idea starting there
Stars not even the thought
A waste of time and money
