First impression was good, but arriving into the room resulted in disappointment. Old carpet, tile and fixtures. Beds need to be replaced with the Marriott's signature mattresses. Dresser is knee high with flat TV on top - unable to watch while laying in bed. Just an ok and hotel, shouldn't carry the brand name. Staff was not impressive, after arriving... More

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. I liked the black-out pull shade to support the more decorative shutters to block out the morning light. The sink area is separate from the bathroom which is nice, but the bath fan was excessively loud. The heating/cooling system could use updating as it is an older model that just offers... More

Stayed here on business in early April 2014 on a corporate rate. The rate included breakfast (as I confirmed at time of res. and time of checkin) but got charged for breakfast the first day.

We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott on a weekend trip to the mall and local attractions. The bathroom was VERY dirty. There was clumps of (private) hair in the shower and black dirt specks in the corners of the tub. When I brought this up to the manager (even showed him cell phone pictures), he just said he would have... More

I stay in Marriott hotels, including Courtyards, frequently. This is hotel is average at best. I'm focusing on the room mainly, because that's obviously the main function of a hotel. The furnishings in my room were worn and in bad need of an update. The HVAC system was difficult to control and blew stale smelling error (hint: replace the filters!)... More

Room was big and clean. The beds were comfortable. Pool was freezing!! They claim it's heated but must only heat it to 68 degrees or less which was too cold for my family and everyone else in the pool! We thought about trying next day but people in elevator said it was still too cold. We paid for heated underground... More

I stay here often when in Minneapolis, but it feels as though it is getting worn and is not being taken care of. Unfortunately, I am beginning to see that with all of the Marriott family. As examples, I attached two pictures. One is of a chair that is in the lobby. It wasn't the only one in this shape,... More
