Vanderbilt Family Hotel Discounts

Several of our local hotels have partnered with us to offer discounts to our parents and families when they come to visit their students. While there are hundreds of lodging choices in Nashville to fit multiple needs, those closest to the campus will be in the West End neighborhood of Midtown. We don’t recommend one over the other; however, all of these will offer you a “Vanderbilt Discount” if you book through the links below or mention the Vanderbilt discount
