Thanks for the nice review. We just finished renovating at the end of February 2014 in the new Marriott Cynergy décor package. We are glad you liked it.
We have stayed here many nights in the past but this time was not one of the best. The room price was quoted at $279 per night so we used our free room certificate. The hotel has been recently updated/renovated and the rooms are varying shades of gray! UGH. Depressing. The King room had a sofa which was believe it or not, more uncomfortable than the old, outdated one. If you sit on the sofa to watch tv, there is nowhere to put your book, drink, snack, etc. because there is not a table.
Additionally, we are Marriott members and a room was not available for "early check-in" but we were advised to return in an hour and a half. Upon return, still no room and there was an excuse of "having to move people." Thank goodness we weren't paying $279+ per night! Will stay at the Residence Inn next time although we have always loved this hotel and its location.
Dear Teressa G,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at our hotel on TripAdvisor. We greatly appreciate your feedback so that we can continually grow and offer the best accommodations to our guests.
As you know from staying at our hotel in the past, our rooms were ready for the renovation that we just completed. We are very excited for the upgraded experience for all of our guests. We are one of the first hotels to be renovated in Marriott’s new “CY-nergy” décor for Courtyards. We are still waiting for the end tables to arrive, as that will complete the new rooms. The rooms are quite a departure from what they were previously, but the new sleeker design reflects Marriott’s updated vision for its hotels.
I would like to apologize to you for the run around you received regarding your request for early check in. We should have been able to meet our given timeframe for check in. We will be sharing your comments with our Front Desk staff to ensure that they continue to provide the service that our guests are expecting.
Again, thank you for sharing your thoughts about your stay at our hotel. We hope to be able to serve you again in the future.
This was a great place to stay. It was right in town so it was convenient to walk to shops and restaurants. It was also very quiet. My only complaint is the price! It was more than $200 a night and that's a bit much for me!
My stay at the Courtyard by Marriott was pleasant. Helpful staff, good free internet connection, free parking on site, little shop in the lobby to buy things, short walk to UVa campus and The Corner with its plethora of restaurants and shops. Safe area. Definitely would stay there again.
Thanks for the review. We are in a great location. Next time you should try riding the UVa. free trolley. It moves around campus and the pedestrian mall downtown. Thanks again.
This was a really nice Courtyard! Looked very recently renovated, excellent staff! Really nice staff that went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. I don't know if you can beat the location - near the university but also near the "mall" area in Charlottesville. We could easily walk down to the mall to restaurants, bars and shopping.
Thanks for the super review. We are in a great location and the staff has one goal in mind: to serve and make your stay as comfortable as you can be away from home. We did finish our renovations as of 2/28/14 so we have completely renovated the hotel and it shows. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip.
The renovations made to this hotel were done the right way. The rooms were spacious,clean and beautiful. The bistro/bar was nice to grab a drink or some breakfast. The staff was very friendly. The little connivence shop was nice for things you forgot to pack or to grab a snack. The pool and fitness center was pretty standard of other hotels. Will stay there again
Thanks for reviewing the hotel. We are now finished with complete renovation from rooms to the lobby and restaurant and as you know have the Starbucks in the morning now and great work space for anytime. We look forward to seeing you again.
