Reviewed 18 June 2013

I will be commuting for a year to Huntsville and selected this hotel as my base. Since I will be paying my own travel expenses, value was key to my decision making process. This is my first week and so far I have been very pleased with the experience. Lisa, Naquesha, and Fred went out of their way to make my stay pleasant from the moment I walked through the door. They ensured I had the room I desired (I do have some quirky requests on room location and layout). The Pros: Staff, Location (nearby shopping and restaurants), room layout, Value. Cons: I agree with others that you really have to know where the hotel is located since it is set back from the road (now I just look for the Pizza Hut to know when to turn), the internet could be a little faster (may have been an anomaly). I will update this review periodically as I have more stays available to critique. So far, I think I made the right choice!

Nice hotel and the staff is outstanding....good central location with plenty of good places to eat close by....highly recommend! Can not say enough good things about the staff. No problems finding the hotel, checking in, internet service or anything. Made for easy and enjoyable travel. I stayed here when they were very full, yet when we needed extra pillows for our pullout bed, they immediately brought them.

This is a very nice hotel. The public areas were modern and comfortable. The staff was nice and helpful, But, the best part was the room. It was a very nice size with a sitting area and a king size bed. There was also a sliding glass door with a patio with comfortable chairs.
The room was clean and the comp shampoo was Paul Mitchell.

No problems finding the hotel, checking in, internet service or anything. Made for easy and enjoyable travel. We stayed here when they were very full, yet when we needed extra pillows for our pullout bed, they immediately brought them. The housekeeping did a great job and even left some inspirational quotes and candy on the kids' pillows!
Not a free breakfast; but still a good value. This is why we ranked it a four and not a five.

Room Tip: Suite was nice; marginally better than regular rooms. Only $40 more than regular room.

We stayed in the Huntsville Courtyard by Marriott on the first night of our trip from NW Indiana to Gulf Shores, Alabama.

We arrived around 9:30 p.m. very tired and ready for a good night's sleep - which is exactly what we got.

Upon arrival they had a contest going, so they asked me to spin a wheel for prizes. I ended up with 1,000 extra points added to my Marriott Rewards Program.

This facility is a standard Courtyard in design and layout. While not overly exciting in decor, it was clean, tasteful and comfortable. The beds were extremely comfortable, and we had a good sleep. Because this was a Courtyard, breakfast was not included. We choose to eat our own breakfast from items we had in a cooler to keep us from withering away during our trip! I believe there was an area where you could purchase a breakfast - not sure to what standards.

I was able to make coffee for us in the room, but the unit had a little leak. I don't know if that was my fault in preparation or if the unit was leaking, so I let the front desk know in case it was a problem with the unit. They were so gracious and friendly. The lady at the front desk immediately took me over to the coffee area where, I believe, they were serving Starbucks coffee and said that we should have some coffee as we shouldn't miss out on our morning coffee. Her genuine, helpful attitude was so uplifting - a great way to start the day. Of course, there was no charge for the coffee. (Not sure, but I believe there would have been a charge otherwise.)

We also used the exercise facilities in the morning to try to avoid the onslaught of too many additional pounds from eating during vacation.

I am giving this four stars for value, because I would like to see a complimentary breakfast included at this price.

All in all a great stay!

A standard Courtyard in décor and layout. It is relatively well located in Huntsville (about halfway between downtown and Redstone). The staff was extremely friendly and helpful…they typified southern hospitality. I had dinner at their café (a Caesar salad and turkey Rueben), both were excellent. It made my dinning in choice a good one. The water pressure in the room was outstanding. They also offer a good Government rate.
