I have come to Ahmedabad on a relatively longer trip ( 12 days) and was not really expecting a very nice accommodation on my limited budget, but Courtyard by Marriott came as a very pleasant surprise. Their long stay offer, which I discovered on internet, is really excellent value of money, and those little extras like complimentary breakfast, complimentary internet and complimentary laundry are really very useful.
Rooms are spacious and very well maintained, breakfast buffet menu is interesting and fairly comprehensive, and public areas are well maintained but above all this, very nice and helpful staff makes all the difference. Two incidents make special mention. On my day one in the hotel, I was in the breakfast buffet, and as I was getting late, I was hurriedly leaving the buffet after gulping down a glass of carrot juice. The young staffer at the juice counter noticed this, and having noted my hurry to leave for office without completing breakfast, politely asked me whether she could pack some croissants, muffins and fruits which I could eat on my way to office. And within less than two minutes, I had packed breakfast in my hands. It was not only a touching gesture but also a good helping and extremely useful help. Second instance worth a mention is very helpful 'at your service' phone help which was a one window help for almost everything. I had some difficulty with internet. Gaurav did help me with this, and a day later, even followed up to make sure that everything is working fine. Housekeeping staff and everyone coming in touch with you is quite polite and professional. My wife, who joined me in middle of the trip, was also very happy with attentive and courteous staff, and particularly with south Indian touch to breakfast buffet.
On the negative side, perhaps room service menus could offer more variety and food a little less spicy generally.
Excellent value for money. I am very delighted to be here and would strongly recommend this place.
