In town for amateur hockey games at Niagara University. Reasonable group rate and great overall accommodations. Rooms clean and roomy. I would recommend that all rooms have a microwave oven. Front desk staff very professional, engaging and helpful. Stayed in room 231 on entrance side and was peaceful. Would return in the future!

This hotel is not bad but considerably overpriced, especially for the area. Perhaps I can most charitably say that they are taking advantage of the fact that there are few mid-range hotels in the area. For the price, breakfast ought to be included, but it is not. Rooms are up to Courtyard standard.

Another great stay at the marriott, rooms are huge and very comfortable, staff are excellent and always available to help and offer suggestions for eating out, only downside is the small selection at the "restaurant" but it's not a big deal breaker. Ideal location to walk along sheridan to various places.

This hotel has clearly been recently refurbished and displays the current Courtyard styling and decor. The reception staff were engaging and welcoming on arrival and helpful in answering questions during my stay. My room was at the back of the hotel on the third floor, and quiet and adequately equipped for working. The WiFi was, at times, a bit slow... More

I'm a Marriott Rewards Platinum member and stay about 100 nights a year at various properties, most of them Marriotts. This hotel was a great surprise. Incredibly clean, beautiful rooms and great service. If you need to be anywhere in this area, this is as good a hotel as you'll find for the money.

My family and I stayed here for one night while we were visiting Niagara Falls.. upon arrival, I asked if it is possible to have a microwave in the room, rather than using the common one in the lobby.. The front desk, did not even try to check the availability before saying no. I found this behavior rude. My daughter... More

Okay - I am a sucker for properties that have great fire pit areas. It's amazing the kinds of memories that can be made as you are circled around a fire pit (either with family & friends or new friends of the moment!). That's why I was THRILLED when I saw upon check-in that this Courtyard by Marriott had a... More

Nice hotel, we picked it because it was in the middle of Niagara Falls Outlets, and between Walden Galleria. It's a nice hotel, service was horribly painfully slow, as no one was at the front desk when we arrived, and then a few of us ended up waiting to check in. When I was waiting to check out there was... More

Nice courtyard, nothing really in area. Stayed for family business. Easy check in. Would rate 3.5 if able to. Small gym. Front desk not the best. Had reservation price issues that weren't brought to my attention until checkout. Would've stayed else ware if I knew of issue. Lobby is nice.

The hotel had very nice business amenities. It was very comfortable and the staff very friendly and professional. The rooms were large and the beds comfortable. The bar and food was good and convenient.
