Courtyard Downtown

A well stated hotel with upscale location and view. Beautiful local restaurants, and ease of use for parking and quick walk to downtown core. Minimal decor well placed to express the rooms style. Staff opened and knowledgeable, yet not overbearing.

Positives: The bed was very comfortable, room well appointed, shower pressure great, good location for parking.

Negatives: Internet was cable, not wireless, still worked quite quick and efficiently.

Courtyard Downtown

The decor inside the room was modern but the color palette and choice of fabrics were better suited to a casino. The front of house staff was not welcoming or particularly helpful. No one helped us with our bags and the front of house staff did not explain any of the hotel amenities (that is, room service,breakfast options, etc).

Positives: This hotel had a convenient location and was very clean.

Negatives: The bed linens were thin and uncomfortable and the staff was not particularly helpful.

Courtyard Downtown

We enjoyed our full weekend stay at the Courtyard because it was so clean with friendly staff who took their duties very seriously. We walked to different restaurants and attractions within minutes. Our room was very comfortable, clean and with many extras, hairdryer, iron etc., and above all it was non smoking. We loved going to the huge Farmers Market just next door. I would like to do a summer stay, and be able to enjoy all the warm weather activities that are handy.

Positives: Loved the size of the room, and the fact that it was non smoking.

Negatives: No tea bags, lack of vending machines.
