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. So the next morning I went for my coffee, I listened to the guy behind the Bistro explain how they weren't... More

The room and other accommodations were OK, the front desk staff very efficient and friendly, the internet connection was fast. 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. I think a company that made $15B... More

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. I prefer a softer bed, but I have certainly slept on worse. Great service. I guess my only complaint is that the rooms are a little dark. But, this is a... More

Very good location in downtown La Crosse with the west side overlooking the river. Updated decor and comfortable lobby and Bistro. Staff is great, very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and so is the property. Nice work out room, not huge but enough to burn some calories. Plenty of parking. Close enough to walk to shops and restaurants, even... More

I am a fan of the Courtyards for small market locations and business travel. Particularly the new styles with the expanded lobby areas. This hotel is a very nice hotel and has a great lobby area to meet with clients or others. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Because of a smaller shower area, I would suggest that you...

I stayed here for one night while attending a meeting at the convention center. I was pleased by the clean, modern appearance of the hotel. As a Marriott Rewards member, I received a friendly greeting, and all my preferences were already noted. I got a complimentary upgrade to a King room overlooking the River. Sweet!

We stay at Marriott properties all over the world. This courtyard is spacious, clean, and friendly. Pool area is large and welcoming. We spent some time relaxing in the hot tub. We had a room with 2 queen beds, and the room was particularly spacious. Very happy with this property!
