“Convenient central Nashville hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

We booked this hotel for a wedding weekend, the options we had were this one, the nearby Hilton (a bit more expensive) and a hotel by the airport. There was a convention in town the same weekend, so out options were very limited. We choose the Courtyard by Marriott since it was good balance of convenience and price.

The room was a good size for two people (king bed room) and split up a bit between a desk area and the bed/tv area with a chair and microwave. The sink is outside the actual bathroom.
The hotel is only a block away from Puckett's and a few blocks from Broadway.

The staff was really helpful and let us have late checkout (1 hour extra) since we were super hungover. They held our bags while we went to brunch. The front desk staff also called a cab for us to the airport, which came quickly and was a good value. Definitely one of the better Courtyard hotels I have been to and I would stay here again.

This Courtyard stood out for its excellent service compared to the one in Brentwood. The staff is clearly trained on hospitality and going beyond the call of duty to serve its guests. This made the stay a positive experience.

The hotel was formerly a bank and the dining room/bar off the lobby has an incredible ballroom feel with what have to be 40 foot ceilings. Great place for a drink.

The glass on the building is single pane and does not insulate as well as modern glass. Not a big price to pay for the history. It did cause the air in my room to run more than usual and I woke up with a stuffy nose because of the vent location in my room. A minor issue on an overall good stay. The flat panel tv was adequate, but not as large as some upscale hotels in the area. Again, not a big deal.

If you favor historical buildings and excellent, personable service this is a great choice for a stay downtown. Go to Demos (a block away) for dinner and you'll have a perfect night.

Room Tip: Room layouts differ a bit in this historic hotel so you may find one suits you better than another...

I stay at this hotel on most of mu business trips to the Nashville area and like it very much. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The lobby is newly renovated and looks much better than it did.
It is a little off of the highway, but it is easy to get to and you can valet a car.
It is a short walk to Broadway and some other excellent local spots that are worth visting.
Overall, it is a very good spot

Booked a king room months ago, Courtyard even confirmed my preference in an email, but when we checked in I was told that the king rooms were all taken. How do you give away my confirmed room? The desk clerk then have us a room with two small double beds for a whole $15 discount ($165!).

Location puts you within walking distance of food, fun and entertainment. You can park the truck when you arrive and not have to see it again until your ready to drag yoursel to leave. This has been the choice spot for my friends and I when we choose to indulge in the live music on Music Row.

My husband and I stayed here October 30. We were attending a concert at the Ryman Auditorium that night and were able to walk from the hotel to the concert. The valet gave us an excellent recommendation for dinner (Merchant's), which was also within walking distance. Our room was great, very quiet and comfortable. Bed and pillows were comfy. Our room faced the building next door, but we didn't mind since we weren't there for the view. We had a great experience and we would definitely stay here again.

As Marriotts go this one is just OK. I realize that it is an old building but it just felt somewhat cheap. I was hoping for a more historic feel given the location and possibility for the building itself but just didn't see that. It's not a bad spot at all and the staff were friendly enough but the location itself needs a lot of work in a lot of small ways which in the end really takes away from what the experience could be.

Room Tip: Take a look at all of your options downtown before booking this one.
