Not the fanciest MARRIOTT you'll find, but clean with a nice staff. Concerned when we drove up and saw outside opening doors, but rooms are standard Courtyard quality and most still open to indoor halls. For the price, would definitely stay here again.

This is a renovated motel or an odd layout for some other reason. first floor rooms have doors from hallway and outside. A little odd, but generally convenient for me. Everything else is to current Courtyard standards.

My family stayed here a weekend to attend a UGA game. Hotel is just a block from downtown restaurants and shops. It is about a 10 min walk to the stadium. The staff is very friendly. I dealt with the manager there and he was very professional and helpful. Despite it being packed, it was quiet and very clean. This... More

Got a chance to stay here a couple of days back . the hotel is nicely made. Very cozy. The room was very comfortable . the bistro is just fine . quality of food was decent . good only for a quick bite. One thing tht did bother me was the unprofessional behavior of Mr Kevin at the front desk.... More

What a great downtown 'boutique' feel Courtyard! Room had been beautifully updated, the Bistro cafe in the lobby had a charming warmth, and the staff was stellar! Made our stay in Athens more pleasant. Highly recommend this Marriott Courtyard!

I guess we were disappointed with this hotel. Our room, although very clean and comfy smelled of damp. The bistro was virtually non exhistant and was more like a very basic Starbucks. It is in a good position for exploring Athens and the staff were friendly.

We checked into our room ahead of time utilizing the Marriott App. We were going to arrive in Athens about 2PM Friday afternoon for the weekend. We received an email at 10AM Friday morning indicating our room was ready. When we arrived check-in was fast and efficient. Our room was EXCELLENT. We had a couple of special housekeeping requests and... More

The rooms of this hotel are great and SO many wonderful staff who take care of you. Miranda, in particular, was most kind and helpful. The pool scene was nice and I loved sitting out on the outdoor balcony with a glass of wine. However, on that note, the prices on drinks at the bar are so ridiculously expensive that... More

Stayed three nights at the Courtyard Athens Downtown and it was quite nice. Good location about 3 blocks from downtown and a couple of blocks from the UG campus. Very friendly staff at the front and provided an upgraded room for my Marriott Platinum status. Breakfast area with Starbucks coffee just off the lobby. Outdoor pool and small fitness center...

This hotel is hidden just west of downtown. The entrance is off a one-way street, so you have to go around the back to get to it. It looks more like an apartment complex than a hotel. Price was decent. Rooms are very dated. It is also a kind of motel/hotel. For rooms on the ground floor, there is both... More
