We will be visiting Nashville in late September for an NFL game at the Nissan Stadium. We arrive Sunday (The Day of the game) and have a free night at either the Hotel Aertson or Holiday Inn Express downtown. The holiday inn looks closer to the stadium and an easier walk but the Hotel Aertson looks like a nicer more updated hotel. This hotel will just be for Sunday night.
We will be switching hotels to the Hyatt Place downtown for the following few nights. This is locked and I don't plan to change it.
Holiday Inn Express: Closer to stadium, downtown location isn't as needed since I will be staying following nights in downtown.
Hotel Aertson: Further from stadium but would give us a different area to explore for the day. Also looks to be the nicer hotel.
Also are hotel pools still open in late Sept or first week of October?
