Just had a short stay at this Courtyard. Very quiet room, soft bed, clean, wifi, but breakfast was offer for extra cost. Figured $280per night breakfsat would be included. Water pressure good, check in and out quick and easy. Would recommend and would stay here again.

We stayed at Courtyard in March for 8 nights - a couple with a 4 year old son. We really loved staying at this hotel. The building is beautiful and the staff were really friendly without being obtrusive or insincere. The hotel is in great location - we were able to walk to the waterfront and restaurants easily. The room... More

This hotel is in a former bank and has a very grand foyer with a fantastic ceiling. We were shown the vault in the basement which still has some of the original safety deposit boxes. Our room was large and comfortable though we didn't have much of a view from the window. The coffee in the room was not very... More

We travel quite a bit for our kid's activities and have never had such a wonderful, accommodating experience. The staff was not just friendly, they were warm, sweet, offered my kids tours of the historical building. At the restaurant, the suggestions were honest and right on - the food was delicious and family friendly (even for my picky kids!). Literally,... More

Nice Hotel. A little old. But the staff is outstanding. Very helpful, honest and courteous. I would have given it a "3" if it were not for the wonderful hotel staff. The trolley or tram is right behind the hotel. The trolley can bring you either to the convention center or northwards to the outlet stores. There is also a... More

We stayed here in late March as a family of four. The hotel is centrally located, very very well priced and beautiful. The fact it's in an old bank building complete with a vault is amazing. The lobby is simply beautiful. Our room, though compact was beautifully decorated and comfortable. What makes this hotel stand out from all the rest?... More

My husband and I ended our wonderful trip to the California Desert (Death Valley and Joshua Tree National Parks) in San Diego in order to visit Balboa Park before returning to NY from the San Diego Airport. Making our way on arrival to the downtown area was a bit of a challenge. However, from arrival to departure the employees of... More

I gave a this hotel 5 stars because I couldn't find anything wrong with it. It doesn't have a pool which I would have liked but all the positives make up for that.
