Vanderbilt Valet

Students have had good experiences with the services of the Vanderbilt Valet. The turnaround time is approximately 3 days for dry cleaning, and the prices are reportedly reasonable. See University section for more on Vanderbilt Valet.

Lobby of MCN and Children’s Hospital

Village Cleaners

Offers a 10% discount to Vandy Students and is used by many of the medical students. Overnight service (ready by 5 pm the next day). Was listed as one of the “Best of Nashville” by CitySearch. Convenient and good prices. However, be aware that Village Cleaners may turn down intricate clothing (i.e. heavily beaded) and they don’t have someone in the store to fit you for alterations (though they will do alterations if you pin the clothes).

2010 Acklen Ave

West End Alterations

This place has quick and reliable service (they will work with you on meeting any deadlines). Also, they are knowledgeable and friendly (won’t alter something if they know it will not turn out well). It can be hard to find in the plaza, but keep looking; I promise it’s there! Also, they only accept cash or checks.
