“Very Nice!”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

My wife & I spent several days here in July/2013 and both of us agree that it was a pleasant stay. We had chosen a river view and we were glad we did, because the views were awesome! The Hotel was quiet when we were in our rooms even though the place was very busy with many people staying there. It is situated in the heart of La Crosse with so many places to visit from restaurants, shopping, river trails, etc. We ate breakfast a couple times at the hotel and the food was very good I must admit, even if it was a few dollars more expensive than normal. The great food was well worth it! Everyone who worked there was nice and the Hotel was recently updated throughout, so the entire Hotel was clean and updated to include our rooms!
No problems and a nice pleasant....you can't ask for much more!

This was my second stay at this nicely apportioned facility. We found the staff to be warm and welcoming, and used the decent fitness facilities.

There are nice options on site here for food and refreshments of all kinds. The rooms are a nice size with very modern decorating.

This is an outstanding stop if you have plans in Downtown La Crosse. We stayed for a show at the La Crosse Center and were back in our room before many of the guests at the show had gotten to their cars.

The view is scenic here and our river view room at the far end of the building was quiet. I slept very well and look forward to returning here.

Room Tip: Rooms close the elevator might get a little noisy.

This Courtyard is on the riverfront and has been recently refurbished. Rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. Staff was friendly and the little side café/bar is nicer than many I've seen in similar hotels. The only drawback is it's pretty close to a plant and a traffic bridge going over the river, so it can be noisy for some but I didn't notice it much. Price was reasonable for that downtown area. Good restaurants in the area - several options within walking distance. Overall a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the riverside if possible and on the north end - away from the plant and bridge...

We have come to like the newest version of the Courtyard chain by Marriott. This one was no exception. Friendly front desk staff, very helpful staff in the bistro (on side café/bar) - yes, you must pay for breakfast - but it is fast, convenient and reasonably priced.

Good place to stop on either personal or business travel. Clean big room on 3rd floor, riverside - ours had a king bed, desk, comfortable couch - perfect for business traveler or a couple. "Seniors" or AAA members get a good discount on the room price.

Location is just south of the Riverside Park area near the US14 bridge over the Mississippi - within walking distance of several good restaurants. It was raining the night of our visit so we just walked across the street to Piggys (see our review on Piggys - good place).

This hotel is located in downtown La Crosse right on the east bank of the Mississippi river. It's about 4 1/2 miles off I-90 if exiting at US 53 (exit 3 in Wisconsin). If arriving during "rush hour" it can be a slow drive in heavy traffic. Under those conditions we prefer exiting I-90 on the Minnesota side of the river (exit 276) to go south on US 14/61. This approach is about 4 miles farther if coming from the east - about 4 miles shorter arriving from the west. Take 14/61 south back across the river and follow signs/GPS etc. to hotel (left on 4th, left on King, left on Front can get you there from US14).

Room Tip: Third floor room overlooking river toward north side of building - quiet - nice view.

I stayed at this marriott for a conference. It was a typical Marriott and did not disappoint in that area (except that I really miss the breakfast that all marriott's have done away with).The location was great with easy access to the LaCrosse Center. My only complaint was the factory that is located right under the bridge. I think it is a glass manfacturer. I heard the grinding of machines all night long. I was at the south end of the hotel.Ask for a room at the north end. Plus my car was covered in dust when we left.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north end.

Dear Carol_1961,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our hotel on Trip Advisor. I'm pleased to see that your sere happy with the cleanliness and service of the hotel. I'm sorry to hear that our neighbors at the concrete plant were working so late and that you ended up experiencing sleep problems. They typically work during normal business hours only up until 6PM at night.

I will contact them directly and find out if schedules have changed or if this was an isolated incident. Thank you for letting us know so we can investigate.

We welcome you back to our hotel anytime.

Wonderful hotel with friendly staff, clean & well appointed rooms and beautiful view of the Mississippi River. It was however, rather pricey. Also it is in great proximity to a couple nice restaurants and a lovely walking path along the river.
