I stayed at Marriott Courtyard for 4 nights from 23-27 May 2014, at room 809.
This is the summary of my experience:
Location: Convenient and secure. It is a few min walk from the BTS station ( Rajadamri) . I feel safer knowing that the hotel is not on the main road. This provides more security as the anti-coup protests seem to be on the main roads and at the BTS stations. Also, whenever taxis arrive at the hotel, there is a security barricades and the hotel security guards do check car boots. I walked to Siam Centre, Paragon Siam, Amarin Plaza, Siam Square, MBK etc from the hotel, the it took only 5-15 minutes. But if you are not fond of walking or tire easily, a quick BTS ride will bring you to any of the popular shopping destinations.
Amenities: Surrounded by shops and cafes, restaurants etc. Very well-located in a bustling vibrant part of Bangkok. The hotel also has a good-sized gym and heated pool.
Café Momo at the hotel : Good food at reasonable prices. Paid about 750 baht for the Friday seafood buffet, excellent grilled beef and big fat juicy prawns. Nice side dishes and very warm smily service from the staff at Café Momo all round. I also ordered room service on one of the nights. The phadthai was delicious and the Caesar salad was decent enough. Generous portions and food arrived hot and fresh.
Room: VERY VERY Spacious by anybody's standards. Bed and sheets were comfy and befitting of Marriott quality. There was an iron, hairdryer, mini bar, water kettle, tea & coffee station and a large writing desk, a corner coffee table with 2 large armchairs. Housekeeping was discreet and polite, rooms were immaculately clean. I was staying on the 8th floor.
Soft finishing : Modern with soothing autumn colors. Lots of wood elements. Nice clean carpeted floor.
Tech stuff : Free wifi in room and lobby area ( reasonably fast!). Flat screen TV. Fantastic universal wall plugs for your gadgets.
Bathroom: Good Shower with marble finishings. Shower stall even has a marble bench. Shower pressure is good.
Service: I would say that service was efficient and swift in general, but not all staff were particularly warm. The trainee female conceirge staff were very polite, always smiling and warm, quick to react to guests and very professional. Checking in was done very efficiently but do not expect much smiles or much warmth from the female staff at the check in counter. But professionalism is not lacking. Maybe it is just my personal expectation that staff at the checkin counter should make guests feel welcome since they are the first point of contact.
Tutuk drivers and the porters and operations manager ( all male staff ) were friendly and professional.
Pros: Safe and good location, spacious comfortable room, very clean facilities and efficient check in/check out. Good food too!
Cons: There was an initial muskiness to the first room which they gave me. But the issue was quickly rectified with a room swap to 809. Quick response to guest complaints. Thumbs up !
Overall : I would stay at Marriott Courtyard Bangkok again ! Excellent !
