For us the hotel's location was perfect, walking distance to several great restaurants, breweries, and attractions. Overall the accommodations were clean and comfortable,as would be expected, and the staff was pleasant. Two things would have bumped this review up a notch. First, the air conditioning unit in the room. It turned on and off loudly nearly every fifteen minutes all... More

In an effort to just "get away" for the night, we decided to get a hotel room and pretend we were on Vacation. Excellent choice with the Downtown Courtyard Marriott. From the time Valet took the car to when we got back in it, the staff was very friendly and professional. Not only treating us as "customers" but more as... More

While there are more expensive options in downtown Grand Rapids, the Courtyard offers very comfortable rooms in a convenient location. While walking on street level or using the elevated walkway, you are close to where you may need to be. Parking is easy in, easy out if you need to drive. Recommended.

The room was clean with an extremely comfortable King sized bed. The only issue with the room was that the water did not get very hot- my significant other and I both had to take luke-warm showers at best. Despite this, we had an amazing time in Grand Rapids. The staff was extremely friendly and even wished us a happy... More

This is our portal to downtown Grand Rapids. Across from the Bob. On the raised skywalk right into the Van Andel arena. No traffic, no weather worries. The hotel has all the rest. Amenities, service and great staff. Comfortable beds!

I stayed here for one night on in June 2014 for business travel. Both the lobby and the room were clean and well maintained and the staff was friendly and eager to assist with directions to nearby restaurants. I stopped in the lobby bistro for coffee and found the staff to be super friendly. My room had a microwave stacked... More

Beautifully clean hotel, situated nicely in downtown with a lot of nearby action. Don't really care for paying to park when a guest at the hotel. If parking was included, would have been a 5 (excellent). Even with the parking charge, still recommend.

This hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. My room was very comfortable and temperature perfect. Across the street there is a very fun bar called "Bob's". Food service good and reasonably priced at Courtyard as well.

We were in for a quick overnight. And everything as usual went as we planned for a Courtyard property. Friendly quick check-in, and as requested, we got a room at the end of the hallway. Very quiet, nice bed. Fitness center had decent reliable treadmills. Easy walk into the downtown, where we enjoyed some of that awesome Madcap coffee. Mere... More
