Hotel was located in great place, easy walking distance to everything. Staff was friendly and room was clean and comfortable. Parking was a little pricy but worth it. Parking is hard to find downtown and they kept your car in a secure place. Easy to get if you needed it.

We enjoyed our stay at the Marriott in Nashville over the Thanksgiving holiday. You really can't beat the location. You can pretty much walk to all the main attractions such as the Ryman, Country Music Hall of Fame, all the famous bars and restaurants, and Printers Alley.

Upon check in, we realized my husband had inadvertently booked a queen size bed rather than a king. They kindly upgraded us to a suite with a king bed at no extra charge. The room decor could use an update, but the room itself was very clean and spacious! The lobby and restaurant are beautiful especially as they already had it decorated for the holidays.

If we ever get a chance to visit Nashville again, we would absolutely stay here.

The location of this hotel is great, but I think what really makes this hotel amazing are the friendly staff. The valet were always standing by my door ready to open it by the time I turned my car off. They also assisted us with unloading and loading our luggage. They also offered directions every time we left the hotel. They also offered good suggestions for fun places to go downtown. The front desk staff were always there to answer any questions with smiling faces. There were a few times valet didn't answer our call, but we just called two minutes later and they did, they're busy, stuff happens. Love this hotel, won't stay anywhere else the next time we are in Nashville.

We had an adorable view of the Printer's Alley sign which I loved. Great hotel within walking distance to everything happening downtown. The hotel hallways were a little cramped. Would def. stay here again in the future tho :)

Location is great. I won't waste time complaining about the room set up. It's an old building, not much they can do about the nonexistent view of the windows. The rooms were fairly clean. But... valet never answered our call. We were locked out of our rooms by 9 a.m. on the day of departure? They took care of that pretty quick but still kind of a nuisance especially with the price of the rooms. Check out. I believe is at noon, not 9.
Just glad we were too busy seeing the wonderful sites of Nashville to spend a lot of time in the hotel. Not to mention the fact that we tripped over window washers every single time we came back to the hotel. Parking was nonexistent anywhere near the hotel. Just not the business friendliest hotel I've been to. There are several downtown, near the attractions, choose a different hotel.

Dear Guest from Western PA,

Thank you for the feedback and sharing the concers you had. I would truly appreciate the opportunity to review the isswues and apologize personally if you have an chance to call me.

Thank you for noting the positive points in our location and cleanliness. It appears your key may have been magnetically deactivated (cell phones are one situation that can do this). We have checked again and confirmed that our keys are set to deactivate at noon. I am also sorry the window washing activity diswturbed you. We do this four days a year and try make every effort to perform that cleaning safely and at minimum disruption to our guests.

So I travelled to Nashville and had the pleasure of staying in this hotel on the night of the County Music Awards, and you guessed it, the entire city was full of tourist and celebrities. This hotel made the best of all the people and the rain!! We were immediately greeted with an open umbrella and the valet's got our luggage inside quickly and out of the rain. We found our way to our room and we were very impressed. The room was nicely appointed and the bed was comfortable. I do have to state however, that the television had only a few channels and the guide in the hotel directory showed a multitude of additional channels that just wouldn't come in on our television. So we had no local television stations. Plus only about 10 channels overall. We made do and didn't see the need to drag someone upstairs to work on this and since the entire city was full we didn't think another room was an option. I would definitely reccommend this hotel.

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend for a mini-vacation. Staying downtown in a big city can be expensive, but this hotel reminded me why it is worth it - this location is just ideal. We walked to everything we wanted to see: Broadway, Country Music Hall of Fame, Hatch Show Print, Printer's Alley, Ryman Auditorium and Riverfront Park. The hotel is just 2 blocks from 2nd Street (great shopping and dining) and just a few more blocks from there is the famous Nashville Broadway area. For the location alone, I would highly recommend this hotel. I also had a good night sleep, the room was quiet and clean and the people were friendly and helpful. You can save on the parking fee if you do a little research before you go too.
