We stayed at the Courtyard Marriot and were very happy with our room and service. The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was located down the hallway away from the elevators, so it's nice and quiet. The room is nicely furnished without feeling crowded. The beds are very comfortable and the pillows are wonderful. The room features many electrical outlets in convenient desktop or lamp mounted locations, so charging electronics is easy. There are a few quirks. The air conditioner is very loud and alternates on and off frequently. In order to hear the tv over the AC, you must turn the tv up really loud. When the AC cycles off, it sounds as if the tv is blasting, so you constantly have to adjust the tv volume as the AC cycles on and off. The room comes with a mini fridge, but it does not have a temperature control. Canned sodas on the shelf are frozen while sodas in the door are merely cool. Finally, the bathroom light needs to warm up. When you first turn it on, the room is very dim, but after a few minutes the light achieves full power. If you need to take a shower, turn the light on early so that you can see what you're doing in there. Overall, I'm very happy with the quality of the hotel and the friendly service. I would definitely consider staying here again. The quirks are just that...quirks. They are not deal breakers.
