“Great hotel - tips for best experience w parking!”
Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

My family stayed here last night on our way to a wedding. We were very pleased with the hotel. It feels updated and clean but still has a lot of character being in a renovated building downtown. Comfortable beds, large rooms (we travel with two kiddos pack and plays- one easily fit in the bathroom and the other in the entryway.). The parking is a little unconventional for a smaller town- when you arrive you turn into the bottom of the parking garage to check in. Once checked in you get the code for the overnight garage. We unloaded our luggage onto a cart on the first level, my husband and kids took it to the room while I parked the car. It worked great but I could see it being a bit of trouble doing it any other way. We also moved our car down before loading up to leave. Restaurant area seems like it had strange hours- it was closed when we arrived and when we got downstairs in the morning. Not a huge deal- there was coffee in the room which helps! We had a great stay and would definitely recommend it!

Thank you for staying with us and enjoying our hotel. We are very fortunate to have a beautiful building with a wonderful Historic background. We always encourage our guests to take advantage of moving their luggage to the room before transfering the car to the parking garage. Due to our Historic status we do not have an elevator in the parking garage, however we do offer complimentary garage parking to all of our guests. Our Bistro is open daily for breakfast and dinner, I hope next time you visit you can enjoy our relaxing Bistro. Thank for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon.

I stay in Marriott Hotels all over the place, and this is a very cool Courtyard built from a historic building downtown. Pretty cool vibe and a 3 story parking garage next to it that was free to park in for guests.

I'd stay here again.

The hotel itself is exactly what you would expect from a Courtyard. The rooms are in good shape, of a good size, and the furnishings are in good shape. Two things tip the scales from "Average" to "Very Good" for me here:

1) There is free garage parking. Even though Amarillo isn't a large city, I rarely encounter free parking at downtown hotel locations, so that was an excellent perk here. The fact that it's in a garage is even better, especially if you're traveling (as we were) during a winter storm. Not having to scrape ice at 8am the next day was fantastic.

2) The staff is excellent. We arrived very late in the day after a long day of driving through a blizzard. No area restaurants were open or delivering due to the weather, so even though they had already closed down the in-hotel Bistro, they re-opened it for us and made us a pizza. In addition, the staff displayed excellent patience and kindness toward frustrated guests who were only there because their travel plans had been disrupted by the weather (including us!)

I can't really speak to the location other than it's downtown so it's likely convenient to whatever brings you to Amarillo. As I said, the city was basically shut down when we arrived at 10pm on a Saturday in the middle of a snowstorm.

Great stay at Marriott in Amarillo. We were there in the middle of snow storm, so not a lot was hoping outside. Staff gave us great recommendation for dinner at Italian restaurant around the corner. Staff in the bar/kitchen area were really friendly giving us great tips on driving etc. As we weren't used to driving in snow they showed real concern for us and when we checked out the next morning the receptionist had a list of numbers for us to get traffic advise on. Room was large and overall hotel was spotlessly clean. Undercover parking was a bonus with the snow.

Stayed here Nov 15, 2013, a Friday night. Wanted a hotel downtown where we could walk to bars. Parking was free, we walked in and were warmly greeted, offered bottled water and were checked in promptly. The room was so nice, my wife was ready to just stay in until I talked her into going to the bars across the street. We were the "old folks" at the bars...at 61, we always are now, but everyone was welcoming and fun. Breakfast not included, but was really pretty good in "The Bistro". I would definitely stay here again in Amarillo!

Comfortable and clean. Good free wifi. However, even though we were up on the 10th floor it was still very noisy from the bars and clubs opposite into the early hours. Not recommended if you want a early quiet night. Typical Courtyard - nothing was free except for coffee in room, no bottled water etc.

For a different experience (especially if not from the US) I recommend the movie drive-in which is about three miles north of hotel and has a digital screen so picture quality was excellent. Two of the latest movies for $8 was great value and good fun.

We had car trouble last summer, and wound up with an unplanned stop in Amarillo. Everything on the interstate was booked because of a conference of some kind, and this was our only option. High priced, not much close by, very expensive food items a la cart in the lobby. Uneven service at the front desk, ranging from very helpful to icy. Made for a strange stay. And the furniture in our room had large stains.
