I'm a fan of Marriott generally; of the standard chain hotels you rely on for the odd overnight stay, they are pretty reliable. I'd say the Courtyard was a little shabbier than some I've stayed in, with a distinctly fusty smell to the room, impossibly hard beds and needing a lick of paint and some grouting/silicone in some areas. The proxomity to the airport is tge big sell. The HARD sell is the restaurant, which you are advised to book for during check-in 'because it's going to get busy'. We had decided to eat there anyway so it was no great deal, but this was pure hussle from the hotel staff relying on having a captive audience. Needleas to say, we needn't have booked - the restaurant was about 20% capacity when we ate. The food was OK (my lemon sole was fine) but £40 for a t-bone steak?! I'd probably look elsewhere next time I fly out of Gatwick.
