Marriott maintains a certain standard of excellence but not all Marriott hotels meet that standard. This one exceeds it! Everyone who works at this hotel from the maids, maintenance personnel, waitresses and the front desk really care that you are comfortable and your visit is perfect. We stayed there for 10 days and found it to be one of the...

This was a reasonable and pleasant place to stay. The location was fabulous: close to restaurants, shopping and the parks. I was surprised not to have a microwave in the room, but we did have a nice refrigerator. The old style air conditioner worked well but was a bit noisy.

I've stayed at this property a few times over the years and keep coming back for the consistency in a nice facility (not high end - but everything you expect).

I stayed at this property for two nights when in town for a site visit at another property that could not accommodate me upon my arrival. This hotel is conveniently located to the theme parks, and to the highway. The room was clean, quiet and met all of my needs. The staff at this property were kind, courteous and helpful....

Stayed here 4 nights. Room was fine if a bit dated, reasonably large, 2 double beds. Shower nice and hot, bathroom clean. Our only complaint is that the aircon was very loud. Location is good, plenty of restaurants around. Free shuttle to Disney and Universal. We heard it was quite cheap to extend your stay here. Breakfast good and not...

One night stay, wanted close proximity to the airport without the high prices. It is about a 15 minute drive to the airport and within walking distance of several restaurants, which is convenient. The staff is friendly, but the hotel room itself needs updating and some basic maintenance. The sink barely drained, took about 20 minutes to drain after a...

We are Marriott rewards members and have stayed at Courtyards before as well as other hotels in the Orlando area. This one has not been updated in quite some time except for the beds and bedding so it almost is a hotel of a different time period.
