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. Check in was quick, info was right, room was clean, and it's in an area within a short walk to a lot of restaurants, etc. Great Christmas lights in the park!! Our room was 3rd floor but stuck behind some buildings, so no view. I was pushing the... More

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...

Dear Mr._Bohemian, Thank-you for your response, I am happy to address your comments regarding your recent visit. I see that you were in at a discounted rate which is lower than what our regular rates go for at this time of year. As far as the envelope you mentioned, you must have mistaken us for different hotel, as we do... More

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

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.

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...

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!
