Spartan Convenience A review of Courtyard By Marriott Nashville Downtown
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.
