We stayed at this Courtyard for our daughters wedding. We only stayed one night but it was very good. The front desk personnel were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and comfortable. Decatur Georgia has some excellent restaurants and Brew Pubs. Many are within walking distance of the hotel. Also the hotel provides a shuttle to places...

I was treated very well from the moment I walked in the front door. Check-in was painless and the employee that checked me in was polite and helpful as he pointed out where everything was to me. The other hotel employees I encountered during our two day stay were cordial as well. We found the room and the beds to... More

My family stayed here to attend my niece's wedding. Absolutely convenient to Atlanta through nearby Marta station. But Decatur has so much in the way of restaurants and shopping. We particularly liked the Indian Street Food Restaurant. The staff was very helpful with any arrangements we needed for transportation. The hotel even has a van that will take you in... More

The greeting at the front desk was very cordial. The room was spacious and comfortable. The room was not the quietest. I could hear the conversation in the adjoining room through the connecting door. This is a problem in many older hotels. Luckily, my neighbor was pretty quiet. It is well located in the heart of Decatur with lots of... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a fantastic location. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and so were the pillows. However, the noise level throughout the night was worse than any hotel I have ever stayed in. The problem with the noise level seemed to be caused by three or more factors. The first issue we had was... More

My husband and I stayed here 3 nites for a Wedding, and although the location is minutes from downtown Atlanta, in a quaint town with many shops and restaurants, the service is poor and I was disappointed that we had to pay more the first night than the next 2 nights, since staff said there was no wedding rate available...

Stayed two nights recently while attending the spring graduation exercises for Emory University. Yes, the parking garage is a little tight - we had no trouble but were very careful. And on leaving we did have a little trouble with the key card reader. Other than that, however, we had a really nice stay and were very pleased with our... More

A group of us had to travel to Decatur last week for a friend's funeral after she was tragically murdered in her home the week before. It was a difficult time, to say the least. We'd all stayed at this hotel two years ago when our same friends were married and were pleased. However, on this return visit, we were... More

I apologize our staff didn’t show a level of compassion that should be given when a person is grieving. Please be assured, I will determine why... More

I come quite often to this hotel during business trips. Hotel is perfectly located in Decatur downtown close to many restaurant options. Hotel is nice and clean. Super friendly staff. Best option in Decatur by far. I can recommend this hotel.
