“An Aussie stay at the Courtyard”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2004

Having booked six months in advance, was pleased to arrive after a long flight, at 10.30pm, to a smile and recognition of my name. Our room was clean and well maintained and very comfortable. The staff were always pleasant and accommodating. We stayed for eight days and nights and enjoyed breakfast downstairs in the dining room. We ate dinner most nights in the dining room - the menu was probably a little limited for an extended stay but the food was plentiful and tasty and always served with a smile.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stayed - being central to the Macquarie Centre and the waterfront. A visit to the Nauticus and the Douglas Macarthur Memorial is a must.

Just spent one night at the Norfok Courtyard. I don't know how old this place is, or if it was just recently renovated, but it is extremely nicely done. The lobby area is very handsome and the rooms are richly decorated. I can't agree with the previous guy's comments about the staff, as I found them to be quite friendly and helpful. The only negative comment I can make, and this is a matter of taste, is the bed.
It is extremely soft and anyone with back problems might have a problem with this. I did not sleep well, but would be inclined to try the hotel again when next in Norfolk.

I tried this hotel since it is new hotel in Noroflk but I will never be staying there again! The service is so bad with staff being so rude, rooms were so dirty and breakfast area was so unhealthy. I am not staying there ever again.

This hotel surpsassed my expectations of a courtyard in every way. The room is very well appointed with everything you would expect in a high priced downtown room including complimentary high speed internet service. There is a full service restaurant and bar which i decided to use since it was rainy and windy out and i wasn't up to walking.
(although there are many dining choices near by to investigate on my next trip). The quality and presentation of my meal was much better than I was expecting. All staff member were friendly and helpful. My only negative would be that many seemed to be a bit on the unpolished side as if they were new hires... but there intentions were always in the right place.

After a terrible stay at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott, I felt compelled to write what a great place the Courtyard is to stay. The hotel is almost brand new. The beds are some of the most comfortable I've ever slept on. The staff is great and room service is very dependable. While it doesn't offer all the amenities that a Marriott does (no bellhops or concierge), its far and away the best hotel in Downtown Norfolk. Currently, high speed Internet is FREE (for all those business travelers). Not sure if Internet pricing will change in the future.
