Verified Reviews of Capitol Hotel An Ascend Collection

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great Location and Rate for What You Get"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We stayed at the Capitol Hotel for two nights a few days after Christmas. It seems to be in a quieter area of downtown Nashville and it was a great location for us about a block from the Capitol building but a few blocks of walking to Broadway, which was not a concern for us. Price wise, it is probably one of the least expensive hotels in the area. It's an outside entrance older hotel, but all the renovations, esp in the lobby/bar area, have made it more modern. All the staff we interacted with (front desk, bartender, maintenance, valet, breakfast room attendant) were very friendly and greeted us each time we walked through the lobby. Each day, we enjoyed the free hot breakfast, which we thought was adequate. Overall, we would definitely consider staying here again on our next visit to downtown Nashville.

"This hotel was very clean and safe."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We like this hotel because it was very clean and safe. Having a shuttle that took us over to Graceland was great. The shuttle was free and convenient! Especially because if we drove our own car to Graceland we would of had to pay a fee. There was a water problem the first night at hotel. Construction going on down the street turned the water all brown. So there was no coffee anywhere in the hotel. The hotel never sent an email to inform any of us. I felt that was wrong. They should have given us the resort fee of 10.95 for one day free. Other then that is was a beautiful safe hotel!

"Clean and convenient."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The room was clean and convenient to downtown attractions but I feel it was a bit overpriced. It looked as though a modern front was put on a Red Roof Inn. Everyone was nice and helpful but now that I am more familiar with the layout of Nashville I would search for a better deal or a larger room. We stayed in downtown Louisville the night before and had a suite at the Gault for less.

"Not What I Expected."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I booked at The Capitol for its close proximity to our event. When I booked, both the ad AND my confirmation email quoted that there would be no charge until check in. I was instantly charged! When we got to the hotel to check in, they had a difficult time finding my reservation in the system, even after me providing the confirmation # in my email. Ms Gwen who checked us in was surprised when I told her I had already been charged prior to check in and confirmed I had been charged on 2/22 for my 3/1 check in. She took my card and let me know the charge would be reversed and then took my mother's credit card and charged for the room on that. (My mother had previously offered to pay for the room for my daughter's competition). Well, it is now 3/5 and I am still waiting for my $$ to show back up in my account. Although I am disappointed with the situation that happened, Ms Gwen that checked us in and the gentlemen that assisted us with valet provided excellent customer service! They were very helpful and polite. Unfortunately, I do not trust the company itself due to the payment fiasco and would not feel comfortable booking with them again.

"Excellent room for the price!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Great location. Everything downtown is within walking distance. Breakfast was excellent. Rooms are a little outdated, but all we were there to do was to hit the downtown and go back to the room to sleep. I read reviews about the street noise, our room was on the street side and it wasn't an issue/problem.

"three Day Stay for Conference."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
My conference was a ten minute walk, but Best Western provided an affordable rate and a comfortable stay. Room was very clean and comfortable. Daily cleaning was excellent. The hotel is under construction which makes it look ugly on the outside, but only until construction is finished. I had no problem with construction noise because I was away during the day. On the downside, several loud and obnoxious (read very drunk) guests arrived back at all hours of the night. Don't know why they have to make so much noise, talking very loudly, cackling, etc. One even yelled about waking up all the guests. You might expect similar behavior at other city hotels where there is so much night life and I don't know what the hotel can do about it. I used ear plugs on my last night and slept much better. Breakfast was good. Service was very good in general. If you have to get up early and work during the day, I recommend ear plugs.
