    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard By Marriott Nashville Downtown

    We loved this hotel!


    My husband and I stayed here in October of 2005 and had a great time. The hotel was modern and clean and the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed we've ever slept in. We normally miss our bed while on vacation, but for the first time ever - we were in no hurry to get home to it. All staff members were friendly, courteous and helpful. The parking ramp adjacent to the hotel made it easy and safe to park and access our car. We will definitely be staying here again. I'm actually looking forward to lounging around in that bed again!

    Had to change hotels


    We had reservations to stay 7 nights at Courtyard but the service was HORRIBLE. We (my husband, mother and I) got to Nashville yesterday and checked in around 3. We were kind of shocked at ALL THE CONSTUCTION downtown. What a mess! Anyway, we pulled up on the curb (valet parking only) and checked in. As many posts as I read I don't remember anyone mentioning how slow the valet parking was. We were told to call 15-20 min. ahead for our car. Well, we called down to get car in the early morning (to pick mom up from casino trip) only to find out they don't have valet through the night. So after we were outside looking for the car we went in to ask the desk clerk where our car was she told us she would have to call maintenance to go get it. I don't undertand why she didn't call maintenance to retrieve car as soon as we requested it. And this was after we didn't get our wake up call (alarm clock didn't work). They had no explination for not giving the wake up call. And sure didn't act like they cared.

    Well, we got through that and went out for breakfast (pancake pantry, good food, way too long to wait), then to the farmers market by Cen. park (awesome fruit, and veggies). We got back to the hotel only to find there were cars parked all up the side of the street unattended so we decided to take a ride around the block hoping a spot would become available, ha ha, after the 3rd time around I decided to just get out and go ask for someone to park the car. Well there was only one young boy working and he was doing the best he could, but clearly overwhelmed. Got up to our room (3pm) room had not been cleaned (no big deal) but we had no toilet paper, or kleenex (back up you know) and the alarm clock had not been replaced (very important sice we can't depend on wake up call). There was no maid on our floor so we were S.O.L. As much as we hated to pack up and leave it was just too much crap for just 24 hours. We are now at the Hamton Inn satisfied as usual. One more thing, we ate at Monell's yesterday and it is the BEST food I have ever had. If you are traveling to Nashville you MUST go there.

    Excellent hotel


    We stayed at this hotel for the CMA festival and found it excellent. The room was large and spotless. The staff friendly and helpfull. The breakfasts good value. Overall no complaints.

    Best birthday yet!


    I rented 2 rooms for a weekend of partying in Nashville and not having to get home, and I LOVE THIS HOTEL...they catered to us like we were the only customers, and they were so sweet- I will be staying there every trip I take to Nashville.

    Do not stay here Thursday through Saturdays!


    I know that this review will seem a little blunt, and I usally try and write nice things about these hotels when I am doing a review, but I had just a horrible stay at the Courtyard Nashville Downtown, that I have to just get it out. I was there from a Wednesday through Saturday, and I think I got the two worst nights of sleep in my life on Thursday and Friday nights. Across the street from the hotel, facing the side of the building that my room was on, is a dark alley filled with nightclubs and bars. From between 2am and 3:30am the entire street and alley was full, and I mean packed, with loud, drunk, screaming people, and a couple hundred cars and taxis picking them up, each basting their car horn.

    When I called down to the front desk the first night at 3am to ask what was going on, the reply I got was "Oh, nothing special." When I asked about it the next morning, I was told there was nothing they could do to control public crowds next to the hotel. The way I see it, if they know that goes on every night, they need to beef up the glass in rooms on that side of the hotel to keep out the noise. I've stayed in hotels in NYC, LA, SF, and never once have I been woken up like that by street noises.

    For a better bet try the Renissance Downtown Hotel. My convention was there, and it seemed like a much nicer hotel, and the staff was great there!

    Awesome Hotel


    We recently stayed at the Courtyard by Marriot in Nashville and could not have been treated any better! The service was excellent from bellboy to reservations to housekeeping. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They even brought us four extra pillows to watch the game in our room. The hotel is very convenient to Printers Alley as well as the Broadway clubs. Parking is a little pricey ($15/day) but all in all a great place totay in Nashville!

    Not impressed


    We stayed here for five days while attending a Convention in August 2004. The room was in need of remodeling - very dingy. Maid service was poor, they forgot something every day we were there. The desk personnel on the weekend were very helpful and nice, but during the week they were "just there". The breakfast was very good and the attendants were also friendly and nice, but the girl in the bar at night was awful. She "closed" the bar at 9:00 p.m. even though it was supposed to be open until 11 p.m. and people were still there.

    There was also some service person who hung out around the bar and then appeared behind the desk to tell us we could not have late check-out the day we left. When we called the desk later, we were given late check out by someone else.

    Downtown Nashville is a blast and this hotel is great!


    In early July of 2004 i was in downtown Nashvillle for business and pleasure. The Marriott Courtyard is a wonderful hotel. Valet parking was fast, front desk very courtious (I waited for two minutes to check in and the guy aplogized for having to wait). I was put on a higher floor and went into my spacious, clean and perfect room. Being downtown, you normall have noise from the streets, however they have sound proof glass over the windows. Awesome!! I slept like a rock. In the morning I worked out and took a hot tub and both were way above par. Great place. Also, I got this place for $45.00 / night through

    Final words, excellent hotel! Good job Marriott.

    Typical Courtyard


    This hotel is typical of the Courtyard chain. It is clean and functional, but far from luxurious. By far, its best characteristic is its location. It is conveniently located to Second Street, the GEC, and other downtown Nashville attractions. If you are looking for value and good location, stay here. If you are looking for luxury, or anything close to it, stay elsewhere.

    Spartan Convenience


    Travelled to Nashville on business and, as usual, chose a Marriott

    property close to my business destination. This started out to be one

    of the worst Marriott experiences ever. Requested Non-smoking...none

    available. Was given a wheelchair access room behind the elevators (did

    not request this). The room was one of the most basic, drab rooms I

    have seen in quite awhile. The beds were very soft (old?), the sofa was

    very well worn, the carpet was loose, bathroom dark... Definitely not

    what I would expect from a Courtyard. More like a La Quinta, Best

    Western, etc.

    The next day I asked to move to a non-smoking room. Was upgraded to a higher floor and a "much better" room (in the words of the manager). The views from the room are great, the room is large but it is still very basic.

    Bottom line, this is a comfortable hotel, pretty good staff, excellent

    location that is close to everything in downtown, especially

    restaurants, bars and Nashville attractions But don't expect any

    upscale accomodations in the rooms.

    Really good time in Nashville

    A travel blog entry by misu5321 on Oct 19, 2015

    We left Memphis around 3pm on Monday after spending all day at Graceland and the Civil Rights Museum.

    The ride was straightforward down I-40 for 3 hours. It was another great day for riding and we really didn't mind riding later in the day. We rode 213 miles.

    We made it to Nashville around 6:30 and checked into the hotel.

I was consumed by 18 year olds with their tops off, I felt pretty old and also covered in others sweat which has never appealed to me, not even at 18. But I had fun, we went on to this rooftop bar at the bottom of Broadway, Acme I think it's called. I spent most of the night chatting to Callum and taking the mick out of jocky American ...
