Came here for a conference, and I have never stayed with Courtyard before. This hotel and chain is superb. I will look for them when traveling from now on. I love how the front desk is open and staff aren't boxed in. Very welcoming when you walk in. When I checked in, staff almost apologized for being sold out and...

Our company hosted a 2 day conference here within the hotel and it was by far a superior experience all around. Staff were polite and ever present for assistance. We did passed hors d'oeuvre one night and they were tasty, prompt and kept everyone taken care of. Buffet lunch and breakfast were also so tasty - best roast and chicken...

My wife was at a conference held at the Courtyard. The check in staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was spacious and very clean. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom and shower nice. The bistro looked good, too.

We held a conference for >100 people here. Couldn't have asked for better service. They catered and food was amazing! Staff, especially chef, went above and beyond to help. Beds were the best ever, soft and comfortable . Clean rooms, nice fireplace in lobby. Meeting rooms sufficient. Overall would definitely recommend!

This hotel was clean, and the staff friendly. From the car, up the walk, through the vestibule and on up to my room, it was very clean. The room was spotless and did not have that industrially deodorized smell. Great shower too - one of my top three items. Anytime I passed any staff, I was always greeted with a...

I checked in immediately after what appeared to be a good ol' boy convention judging by the number of Dodge Ram pickups in the parking lot and number of mid 40s guys with gotees drinking beer in the lounge which were quite loud. As a Marriott platinum member my first impression wasn't stellar and as I tried to ignore the...

Stayed at the Courtyard over the Christmas holiday. The hotel is well maintained including rooms and common areas. It is a disappointment that there is no longer a cocktail lounge. There is a market area where one can buy beer and one choice of wine, refrigerated/frozen microwaveable items and other snack items from a cooler and pantry area. Rooms have...

We have hosted many meetings at different locations, and this hotel and team make us look great EVERY time! Great food, great accommodations, great service. We've also had breastfeeding moms who attended who needed a private room for pumping, and the Marriott staff handled that request right off!

Not actually sure if the hotel is new or recently remodeled, but very nice and clean. Staff were also nice and helpful and good food and drink options from the little mini restaurant/cafe. Rooms were also clean!

My wife and me stayed here one night, in November, We were greeted when we came in the door. Fast check in, and a great 4th room. That was roomy,clean and quiet. There's a small bar in the lobby, along with a bistro of sorts. We did get drinks from the bar and go outside and sit at the fire...
