I hate to ever give a mediocre or poor review, but this Courtyard disappointed despite paying under $60 per room (we had two) per night on Priceline. I guess this was one of the rare occasions where I got what I paid for and I'm a bit bitter. The place DOES have issues despite some good staff. Here's what we... More

I stayed here for a 2 night business trip. The hotel is in a great location, centrally located with very many bars/restaurants in walking distance. The lobby and restaurant are brand new and very nice. But the rooms are outdated and a bit rundown (stains, torn curtains, grimy bathroom). Mine had an incredibly strong "air-freshener" scent which was overwhelming every... More

Convenient location! A layover in Louisville in route back home (September 2nd 2012) and it just so happen that the Louisville Cardinal’s defeated UK that night and the sky was filled with fireworks. With that said, my room had a wonderful view of the firework show. The hotel is centrally located near freeway as well as walking distance to Fourth... More

I am not sure if it was because i booked on business rate, but I got free breakfast. Breakfast is a bit different than usual courtyard - it is kind of a cafe setting. You can pick things up at counter order order cooked from their (limited) menu. I just grabbed a yogurt parfait to go. The bar is the... More

I wish I could post pictures of my room on here. The location is great as it is very convenient to many restaurants and the Yum Center. I will also parking is convenient and the lobby is very nice and updated. This is where the positives end! My room is on the eighth floor and the wall is literally open... More

I was responsible for 5 room nights including mine on a recent stay. My room was an absolute wreck. The lobby appeared to be to a different hotel. I am from Louisville and selected this hotel over all others. I was shocked, embarrassed, and disappointed in the room quality. My room had extensive stains in the bathroom, furniture that was...

My wife and I stayed here for a concert at the Palace. The hotel has a free van shuttle which will take you to nearby events which was easy and convenient. The room was clean and comfortable as most all Marriotts are. I did have an over charge on my bill which i had to call about. The Hotel removed... More

The room and halls lacked the style and aesthetics seen in the lobby. The bathroom felt like a hospital bathroom, but not as clean looking. But the bed was so comfortable! We were able to walk to our destinations without the crowds. The food was over priced in the hotel, but just down the road around the block are plenty... More
