Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Rioddi Volterra
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.
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!
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!
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 priceline.com
Final words, excellent hotel! Good job Marriott.
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.
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
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.

On our way to Nashville we stopped in West Memphis for a night at Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River RV Park where we had stayed on our east to west trip earlier this year. Jon and Aaron visited the Rock and Soul Museum and went to the enormous pyramid shaped Bass Pro Shop building in Memphis. We had seen it by the highway last time we passed and Jon was determined to see ...
... We found a different road to take to get out of here to avoid all the nasty traffic we saw coming in a couple of days ago. The road was a bit narrow and winding, but it was quite nice. It gave us a chance to see what life is like around the area. There were a lot of nice houses along the route with large lots and for the most part, no fences between properties. That seems to be pretty much the norm back east.
We connected to the 441 and headed ...
We arrived at the home town of country music at around 5:30pm and after a quick shower, change and dinner, we headed out to a local high school to catch a game of football. Sat on the bleachers, it wasn't quite NFL, but for $6 vs $80, I wasn't complaining. Unfortunately we didn't stay longer than an hour as the heavens opened and we were so not prepared for the rain. Shameful Brits!! So we headed in to town to continue doing what we do best.......drink! First bar of the ...

Nashville is as lively as expected - plenty of bars with live music and people everywhere. Plenty of places to buy cowboy boots! The only trouble is there is a long wait for food so we start wandering the streets (as you do!). By chance there was this lovely lady also walking down the street in the same direction as us. We got talking apparently she (Gail) was here for the weekend as she ...
... 50 per night, we rented a tent in someone's backyard! When we arrived to this persons backyard, it was full of tents. In fact our arrival meant the owner had to buy another tent. At least with a new tent, it was waterproof. Five tents and five couples camping in a dodgy neighbourhood with a makeshift shower and bathroom facilities, next to the chickens. I have to say, it was all kinds of weird but it was an experience. The last experience, from our RoadTrip across America.
