The good: Rooms and foyer recently updated (shower/bathtub are still original and not very nice). Comfortable beds. Clean rooms. Paul Mitchell toiletries. The so so: Elevators have not been updated, so they are slow and clunky. The bad: The location is good if your goal is highway accessibility. Otherwise, this location feels like it's in the middle of a cluster... More

Courtyard Hamilton has consistently delivered a great stay. Well kept, maintained and staffed, we don't hesitate to return. The staff are the key to the success of this property. Centrally located to the Lincoln Alexander highway. We will be back.

There are few hotels near this area so we felt forced to stay here. A very pleasant surprise with good service, clean rooms, and quiet surroundings which itself is a surprise given the major street it faces

Stayed a nite at the Courtyard Hamilton on a business trip. On arrival, the hotel looks new with hip furnishings. Got my room key card, and waited for the slow elevator to arrive. Proceeded to my room, only to find that both my room key cards did not work. The room itself was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable,... More

The Marriott Courtyard brand stands for quality and convenience at a fair price. This particular hotel met that standard. The front desk staff was very helpful and pleasant. The wifi came in handy. The rooms were predictably clean and well appointed. Will it change your world? No. Will you have a pleasant stay? I think so.
