This Courtyard has a great location and a great,great staff. Parking is provided, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The hotel is not in the middle of downtown, but it's an easy walk to everything else, especially the convention center. Driving -- the hotel is easy in and out, and back on the road the next day.

Hotel is very clean and staff was very pleasant. Patio on the river is nice and my kids loved the pool. We watched July 4th fireworks and it was great, they even had nice surprises for the kids. Service in bistro was also very good.

The parking was free, which is a nice perk for a downtown hotel. It is located right where the river walk begins which is a nice amenity for this river front town. There are restaurants and river boat tours within easy walking distance. All of the river front hotels are expensive. The rooms were starkly decorated, very modern, but clean... More

Halfway to Chicago, with my cellphone charge depleted, I realized that I left my charger in the room. I phoned the hotel, and immediately reached Monica Berra. While I waited online, she sent housekeeping to my room, verified that the charger was there, and mailed it my home in Minneapolis. It arrived before I returned to Chicago. Also: great waterfront...

This property is in a great location on the river close to many great restaurants and activites. So if you are willing to pay the exorbitant price for that convenience, then this is the place for you. Be aware that the bathrooms are the smallest we have ever experienced. We have stayed in places 1/4 the price and had much... More

An upscale hotel at the edge of the downtown area...unfortunately for us this hotel is not close to tourist attractions we enjoy, which was a disappointment. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon...not much to do in the downtown area near the hotel...not many good restaurants near the hotel (at least not restaurants recommended by hotel staff). Small off-street parking area,... More

LaCrosse is such a fun city in the summertime! The kids had a blast, lots of parks and great restaurants. We loved Edwardo's Pizza, Fayze's for breakfast, and the Pearl for ice cream. It was a great mini vacation, and the Courtyard was an excellent place to stay.

I chose this hotel based on it's location close to everything downtown and was not disappointed. A short walk is all that is needed to reach multiple bars and restaurants. The free parking and beautiful view of the Mississippi River are simply a bonus!

I stopped off in La Crosse for food before but never stayed in the area since the first mile or two off the freeway looked run down.

I've stated at this Courtyard several times for business and have never been disappointed. It's is very clean, friendly and accommodates my needs. I even enjoy sitting in the Bistro with dinner and a good Cabernet, watching the boats on the Mississippi and answering emails.
