The staff were very friendly and professional, the location's great for a place if you're looking for a place downtown, and the place and my room were pretty much spotless. If these things matter to you, you may like this place.
These things matter, so why not higher than the 3.5 / 5 I'd like to give?
The ice machine in the hallway right beside my room was as loud as some lawnmowers. In fact, I think I've heard quieter lawn mowers than that machine. Perhaps it was powered by Briggs and Stratton? Doubt it, but it certainly sounded like it. I asked a staff member who I met in an elevator if it was usually that loud - yep, definitely. So the hotel knew it was ridiculous and that was fine with management was the conclusion I drew. All of that would typical earn a place a really bad rating with me, but amazingly, the room was well enough insulated that this ridiculously loud thing did not keep me awake. Also, the staff member offered to move me if it was an issue. The staff person absolutely did his/her part, and I appreciated it - the people with authority to spend the $ to replace or fix the ice machine really should do theirs.
The pool, while pleasant, was second smallest i've ever seen. The only one smaller was an exercise pool where the water moved, not the swimmer. If you really like going for a swim and you're taller than 3', pass on the Courtyard. The workout room was on the tiny side too.
