Fodor's Expert Review Courtyard by Marriott–Airport

2508 Elm Hill Pike, Nashville, Tennessee 37214, United States See on Map

Mary Margaret Harris

This handsome low-rise hotel offers amenities often found in higher price properties: spacious rooms, king-size beds, oversize desks, and ergonomic desk chairs. It's near the Nashville airport, Opryland complex, and Opry Mills outlet mall, and it has a restaurant, pool, fitness center, and business center.

The hotel has a car rental service.

The hotel's 134 rooms are simple, but clean and modern with plenty of room for guests to relax. Guests can choose from standard rooms with a king bed and sofa sleeper, two queen beds, or two double beds. For more space, book one of the 11 2-room suites. Ideal for families or larger groups, these rooms include a king or two double beds in one room, a sofa sleeper in a separate room, and a balcony with a courtyard view.

All rooms include a sitting area, desk and chair, television, and in-room coffee or tea. The non-smoking hotel is also fully mobility accessible.

The guest rooms were recently renovated with new carpet, wall coverings, and bedding.

Average bathrooms providing adequate space are stocked with Paul Mitchell products. Each bathroom has a shower-bathtub combination with a shower curtain for privacy.


Though the hotel may appear dated from the exterior, the interior has been entirely renovated. Guests will find a modernized hotel with a welcoming lobby, complete with a split front desk for added privacy to the check-in process while accommodating multiple parties simultaneously.The lobby includes ample seating with televisions for guests to gather at as well as a market pantry with snacks and drinks for purchase.

A business center with several computers and printing capabilities is available for guest use.

The hotel's courtyard provides a comfortable setting with modern outdoor furnishings and lanterns for alfresco gatherings during nice weather.

Enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening drink by the lobby fireplace for a moment of relaxation during the day.

While the hotel does not have a separate bar, drinks and cocktails can be ordered at The Bistro.


Getting Around

Nashville is a sprawling city, and the key to getting around while staying outside of the city center is to drive or Uber. The hotel is a little out of reach to make effective use of the public transportation system.

Guests will appreciate the hotel's free parking lot.


Try Monell's at the Manor (8-minute drive) for classic Southern entrées, or Darfons (3-minute drive) for daily chef's choice with fresh, seasonal ingredients. A trip to Nashville isn't complete without a stop at Biscuit Love (12-minute drive) in the Gulch.


For a drink without heading into town, try McNamara's Irish Pub (5-minute drive). Though outside of the city, the hotel is a short drive to one of the mainstays of Nashville nightlife, Pinewood Social (10-minute drive). To hit the honky tonks and other classics like Acme Feed and Seed (11-minute drive), head to Broadway.


Courtyard by Marriott Nashville Airport is the best of both budget travel, business travel, and family-friendly travel. Providing updated digs with all the comforts and essentials, guests have the option to dine in or eat out as well as easy access to the airport thanks the hotel shuttle. Though close to the international airport, the hotel's location is perfect for exploring downtown as well, which is less than six miles away.
