The room was nice, the staff attentive, and the dining area very continental. I did not get a chance to try the exercise facilities but I did take a peek and the equipment looks to be first-rate. They also have a nice-looking indoor pool. It was, however, a little pricey ($175/night)

I stayed at the Marriott for my daughters dance competition. The location was perfect since it was so close to the La Crosse Center. The staff was very friendly. Maybe it was because of all of the high school girls, but it was really noisy in the morning. Overall, nice hotel wit great central location.

Right on the beautiful river, with a gorgeous view. The hotel has a patio outside with a fire pit, and is a great place to hang out during the warmer months. The staff has always been friendly, and has made me into a regular. In downtown, but away from any noise. You can walk to several restaurants, and it is... More

Clean rooms, attentive staff & typically overpriced restaurant. Good - Rooms, staff and location. Bad - Crappy Internet (they have 'free' and 'enhanced' both were bad) and high priced food. I would stay again just for the location.

This hotel is a standard Courtyard by Marriott hotel. It's very clean and updated but feels corporate. We had a pleasant stay in December in a huge room. We ordered a cot for our daughter, and the "cot" seemed more like a twin bed and was very comfortable. The bathroom was tiny compared to the size of the room. The... More

We stayed in a 2 queen room on a recent Saturday night.

The room and other accommodations were OK, the front desk staff efficient and friendly, the internet connection adequate for our very limited purposes. We make it a practice to avoid any Marriott property but the folks we were meeting in La Crosse had already picked the Courtyard and we wanted to stay in the same hotel. We felt the emphasis...

Friendly staff, great view and cool location. Marriott Courtyards are nearly identical everywhere, so when they are different it is noticed by Elite/frequent visitors. Usually I am told at check-in whether breakfast and/or coffee is included. That didnt occur.

We stayed here because we could not get a room at Staybridge, which is where we normally stay. We were not disappointed. Nice location. Very clean. Beds were good.
