Great hotel in the heart of downtown Nashville. Steps away from Broadway Avenue honkytonks, restaurants and activities. Has a concierge, bell hops, night locked doors, Starbucks and great food in its lounge.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has unobstructed views as some rooms face the side of the building next door mak...

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of CMA fest in early June. This is my 2nd stay at this hotel for the same time frame. The staff is always so welcoming and friendly. They offer valet parking but I have always parked in the garage right next door, or across the street. We were given a corner room on the 8th floor with two beds and a couch (not sure if it was a hide-a-bed, we didn't look). Room was very spacious and had a small refrigerator. Only complaint is the counter top around the single sink is rather small. There is a shelf below the sink to help store items though. The Courtyard is within walking distance to the Riverfront, Broadway and a block from the Ryman. I will always check this hotel first when I travel to Nashville. Again, the staff is tremendous!

Just visited Nashville for the CMA Music Festival and stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. It was perfectly situated to enjoy the festival and be able to come back to the room for a break or a shower before heading back out for the nighttime activities. Yes, as others have stated the rooms are dated but everything was clean and I had the best water pressure I have ever had in a hotel (an important feature). And every person we encountered on staff was fabulous - friendly, helpful, and warm. Our room charge was part of our travel package so I can't speak to price but I would recommend this hotel based on the great staff and fabulous location.

My husband and I have stayed at Courtyards before and weren't disappointed in this one. We stayed for 3 nights in May 2014. The location is great, near the honky-tonk of Broadway and Printers' Alley, and walking distance to the Ryman Auditorium and Museums. The Visitors' Center is 2 blocks away; stop in for maps and info. Our room was a "king whirlpool" and actually had a whirlpool bath in the bedroom! A little weird; the space could be better used for a small seating area. But the room was comfortable and clean. Instead of having breakfast in the Bistro, we went across the street to Dunn's Coffee. Thee valet parking is pricey (we could have found something cheaper), but convenient. The lobby and bar area is spacious and inviting. We definitely would stay here again.

Room Tip: When booking, ask the price difference between a "king" and "king whirlpool". I...

We are Marriott Platinum and thought this Marriott Courtyard had a great location, but felt the rooms didn't quite match the high price. We initially were given a very oddly laid out long room and asked the front desk to be moved to another one. The nice lady at the front desk explained that the hotel was built inside what was one of the oldest banks in Nashville and all the rooms are very different because they were renovated offices. Our second room was definitely an improvement, but the furnishings seemed very worn out - especially the couch. Everything was very clean, though, and we enjoyed the 5 minute walk to the action on Broadway. Be sure to park in one of the self-parking lots to save yourself from having to use their super expensive valet.

Stayed in a king room, a little on the small side, but clean with a work desk and single seater armchair. Good sized bathroom. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The valets were excellent, friendly and welcoming. Hotel is in a good location with about a 5 min walk to Broadway. Printers Alley is just around the corner from the hotel. The breakfast, included in the rate, was a breakfast sandwich and coffee. The sandwich was unappealing and didn’t taste great. We went elsewhere for breakfast the next morning. At the time we stayed, unbeknown to us until arrival, Taylor Swift was in town. We didn’t have a lot of accommodation options available. The hotel rate was exorbitant and certainly not great value for what we paid for 2 nights. I certainly wouldn’t stay here again at those rates. Half the price and I might consider it, without breakfast included.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel from May 12-16, 2014.The service provided by the hotel staff on our arrival was exceptional.Vale'ts Matt and Austin who we met on our arrival did their best to ensure our experience at the CourtYard Marriott was unforgettable.We rated the service they provided from the time we arrived to the time we left a 10+. The hotel should be proud to have Matt and Austin working as Valet's and the first ones customers see when they arrive!
