“Chilling in Music City”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Stayed in Nashville visiting our daughter who moved back to Nashville after 2 years in Colorado. Even though it was "move in" weekend for Vandy and a bit hectic, the folks at the Courtyard were super friendly and helpful.

The property is well maintained, with a fresh lobby, nice pool and comfortable rooms. Location is central to Vanderbilt and close to Hillsboro Village, 12-South as well as downtown.

A pleasant stay.

Room Tip: We were in a higher floor in the the tower away from the lobby, a bit quieter than the main elevator...

Have stayed at this hotel about 5 times because of its close proximity to Vanderbilt University which my daughter attends. At first I was totally happy with the experiences at the prices paid. With the Marriot rewards card I often stayed a nitght free with the purhase of another. I recall having paid $118 or so for the paid night. This August I wound up paying over $300 for two nights and that was with a $89 Orbitz credit I had applied.. Marriot changed their point system and upgraded this hotel to a higher rating so I was unable to use any points during this stay.The number of points needed at a mediocre hotel is ridiculous.
Marriot did do a total upgrade to its lobby and adjoining area...however it was in sad shape and was sorely needed....very worn and dirty furniture. But why do I need to pay so steeply for a lobby upgrade? All in all its still a modest hotel.
My daughter is graduating in May and I have made reservations at a different hotel with a higher rating at a coparable price.

Room Tip: Don't get the kings-sized bed. For some reason it seems rickety and youcan feel every twitch fro...

I stayed at this Courtyard for my first time in Nashville, and I would stay here again. The hotel is very conveniently located. It is walking distance to a variety of restaurants, bars and Vanderbilt. Also staff was very friendly, and the rooms were comfortable enough for the price i payed. I definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for average comfort, awesome location at a normal price.

I stayed at the Marriott Nashville Vanderbilt/West End hotel in Nashville while Summer NAMM was in town. The room was very average, small with 1 King and a sofa bed. The sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable (as far as sofa beds go).

The sink was outside of the bathroom, but was very small. The tub drain didn't work so well so I was standing in water for the 2nd half of my shower.

The fitness center and pool were nice, though small.

The lounge area was very popular later at night, with a young crowd.

The hotel is within walking distance of a couple of nice (low key) restaurants, which is a plus.

I would possibly stay here again, though it would really depend on the rate I could get.

This is definitely not the nicest Courtyard I have stayed at.

PROS
Nice lobby
Friendly/helpful staff
Good location

CONS
Rooms are small and a big dated. Bathroom sink has virtually zero counter space
Towels are terribly thin and small.
Rooms felt run down.

Nice rooms. Balcony overlooking city. Great service. Shuttle takes you everywhere. For the price its worth it. There is so much in this area that can take up a day. Make sure you go to winners or losers behind the hotel.

DOSJohnston, Director of Sales at Courtyard Nashville Vanderbilt/West End, responded to this review, 31 August 2013
Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. Many people only think of the well known downtown district of Nashville for places to go and don't realize that some of the best places to get a true feel of the city is in the midtown area. We are the best of both - as the complimentary shuttle can get take you to experience downtown and midtown is in walking distance. There is so much to do and see that it usually takes a few visits to get it all in. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you visit us again in the near future.

We stayed here earlier this week while visiting colleges for our daughter. We are a family of four so we had a king bed and sofa bed. When the sofa was opened the room was definitely tight for 4 people, probably so for more than 2. However, there was good wireless, the location was very convenient and the staff was very accommodating. Their shuttle will drop you and pick you up if you want to go downtown at no charge. Staff was overall very friendly and responsive. We would stay again.
