I stayed 1 night in the Federal Way Courtyard and found it very comfortable with modern décor and amenities. The best was their helpful staff. Right from the airport pick up driver, to the receptionist and the hugely entertaining and engaging old lady at their Bar and Restaurant....everyone was upbeat, courteous and went the extra mile. The rooms were well... More

Easy to find just off of I-5. I found the staff friendly and helpful. Very clean rooms with comfy beds. Free wifi was a nice plus. Good location for shopping and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again!

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past three years. Unfortunately, it has fallen a victim to the "New Lobby" gimmick that Courtyard has been employing. That is they completely renovate the lobby of the hotel and make it look extremely nice, yet completely neglect the rooms where guests will actually spend most of their time while... More

Courtyard located just off I-5 south of Seattle in Federal Way. Close to multiple restaurants and shopping areas for essentials. Staff was polite. Like the cafe style that the Courtyards have gone to as for breakfast it is fairly easy to grab a quick bite. Service was quicker there than many of the other Courtyards I've visited. workout room nicely... More

This Courtyard was pretty good and met all my expectations. The only concern was that the room was dated and although there are balconies, I don't think you can go out on them (I couldn't in my suite). The location indeed was very convenient.

Hotel has newer lobby, but rooms seem dated with thin scratchy towels. Room was clean, staff pleasant. Breakfast isn't free and they overcharge for what you get. They have a shuttle to airport, but limited hours 6am-8pm. Location is great, walking distance to decent restaurants easy on/off I5. Just remember to ask for room not facing highway. Charging for breakfast... More

I was here on business several times last year. Why did I give it a 5/5 for your traditional Courtyard? It's because of all the factors that most people choose in a hotel. Hotel shuttle service? You got it. Friendly staff? They all knew my name and always wished me a good morning/good evening/welcome back. Breakfast? Among the best I... More

This is a nice hotel, but it has a fatal flaw. There is no coffee available after 10 am. They close their little restaurant and don't open again until dinner time. It was very frustrating to be holding a workshop on site and to not have coffee available for purchase during break! Government rules prohibited us from providing any food... More

Everything you need is here. Quick check-in, nice little store in the lobby for anything you forgot, and a wonderful little café for breakfast or evening cocktail. Rooms were dated but very clean. Pool is great for the kids too.
