4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

Stayed here for one quick night in town visiting some friends and all the starwood locations were booked. I wasn't really excited about it but VERY surprised when I got there. SUPER friendly service and a very nice remodel of the place. Totally surprised and a place I'm happy to recommend for a quick stop on business.

The front desk staff was upbeat and accommodating, allowing us to check in early (Marriott points program evidently is its own reward!). There is active renovation going on; our room had been redone in very nice quiet tones of blue. I liked the wood floors with carpeting by the bed area but it isn't a reasonable solution for a hotel... More

Stayed there for a business trip. On the positive side had a large, clean and renovated room. But that was it. Payed top rates (USD 300+) due to conference and service/state of infrastructure was appalling. First night: arrived late,unpacked, wanted to have shower - no hot water. Had to move rooms. Second day: air conditioning went nuts with noise every... More

Great staff who were friendly and provided excellent service. CONS: For the rooms I would have given four stars if it wasn't for having no water pressure on the last day. It was a bit of a pain trying to get cleaned up and prepare to leave with no water. If possible, it would have been nice if they notified... More

Hotel has been recently updated and remodeled. Needs a little signage in the halls, may be missing due to recent paint. Restaurant and bar on site are very nice. Would definitely recommend the place. Thermostat barely worked, could have been operator......

We stayed two nights over Thanksgiving to be near family. We often travel to Long Beach for this reason, and we have stayed at The Courtyard before. There was no mention prior to check in that this Hotel was undergoing major renovations. Our room was on the 7th floor, and was nicely furnished and one of the "new" rooms. However,... More

A nice Courtyard newly renovated and very close to the Long beach action. Upper floors offer some great views. Within walking distance of many good shops and restaurants including a special restaurant on premises.

I have to tell you, we stay at hotels very frequently, maybe once a month; Hilton, La Quinta, Best Western, Ayers...etc. I've not been to a Marriott in years, but this was the best price, value location for going to Catalina the next day and going to the Queen Mary that night. ANYWAY, Eric at the front desk was SO... More

This hotel is a find.! The staff is professional, friendly and each takes empowerment seriously. The GM should be commended for the staff training and attitude. The restaurant coulkd be a destination in itself. Menu is really varied.
