Calling all sports fans and athletes! If you are visiting Music City to catch some of Nashville’s incredible live sports, or are part of your own traveling sports team, the Marriott Nashville at Vanderbilt University is the perfect home base. We’ve got everything you’re looking for in a home away from home, including:
Our Vanderbilt University hotel is also home to the Park25 Bistro, a full-service restaurant and bar that serves up classic cuisine with a distinctive Southern Flare. With plenty of local Tennessee beer and signature cocktails (including the Anchor Down – a favorite among Vandy alums), Park25 Bistro is a neighborhood hangout that’s perfect for fueling up pre-game or continuing the celebration after a big win.
Vandy sports are a big deal in Nashville. With 16 teams, 14 of which compete in the Southeastern Conference, this Division I school has earned national championships in just about every sport over the university’s rich history. In fact, seven of Vanderbilt’s 16 teams were ranked in the Top 25 of their respective sports in 2007, and the men’s baseball team won the NCAA national championship in 2014.
Currently coached by former Tennessee Titans wide receiver Derek Mason, Vanderbilt’s football program is also among the best in the nation and one the university’s most popular sports. Fans can watch the Commodores take on rivals like Ole Miss and the Tennessee Volunteers right next to the hotel in Vanderbilt Stadium.
Located just a four-mile drive from the hotel, Nissan Stadium is the home of the NFL Tennessee Titans as well as the Tennessee State Tigers, and offers an amazing experience for any die-hard football fan. Titans football is fun for the whole family and offers the perfect addition to any weekend stay at Marriott Vanderbilt. Nissan Stadium also hosts a variety of special events throughout the year, such as:
Hockey fans can watch the NHL Nashville Predators take on the competition at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. The team has invested $36 million back into the arena, representing a serious commitment to their home ice as well as the city’s hockey legacy.

With so many talented singers in Music City, it’s not a surprise, but it certainly is a memorable experience!
Bridgestone Arena also regularly hosts other professional sporting events including SEC Tournaments, the NCAA Women’s Final Four U.S., figure skating and even the U.S. Gymnastics qualifying competitions.
