I would just like to recognize someone who's position is well overlooked as she works the night audit and doesn't have much interaction with guests to make an impression BUT she made a HUGE impression to me.

Visiting family in Alexandria and get a better deal here than the Marriott's there. We were able to check in early and park our RV at the back of the good size parking lot. The hotel is next door to a grocery store which was handy. It's on a busy road (Hwy 50) but road noise was not an issue.... More

This was a 3 night business stay. The location is fairly good, but along a rather busy road. It is next door to a grocery store, so buying staple items or a quick meal is easy. It appears like an older property that has received a facelift - Bistro added, lobby updated etc. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable.... More

My husband and I were in town visiting friends and had booked the Courtyard by Marriott online prior to our stay. We found our room clean and comfortable with up to date furnishings.

I stay at Marriotts exclusively (lifetime platinum) so I feel I have adequate experience when it comes to making hotel reviews. This is a typical older Courtyard that had the Bistro facelift and some minor room updates. I'm ok with the hotel amenities and location.

This hotel was gorgeous. I could not believe we got this room for the price we paid. The only downside was they do not give you anything free for breakfast. You have one cup of coffee in your room. I had to ask for another cup for my husband. Besides that it was awesome.
