Should we stay at Opryland during this conference, or should we stay downtown and commute?

I am going to a conference at the Gaylord Opryland Resort, and will be bringing a plus one who isn't attending (but will be remote-working some of the time). Looking at previous askmes, it seems like there isn't much to do around Opryland besides a mall. We are not fans of malls.
But we ARE fans of music and art and cocktails and walkable cities. Should we get a hotel downtown and pony up the money to get a car to get me to the conference each day? Is there a more fun/easy neighborhood near downtown we should stay in? Will the traffic or other considerations make one area/hotel better than another? Or is the Opryland Resort so much nicer than I think that we should stay there?
