“A place to take the kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

One of the nicer Courtyards I have stayed but why shouldn't it be for its only four years old. However, the entrance floods each time it rains and if there is more than one car present you may need to wade through to or three inches of water. The check in could have gone better as the welcome staff was aloof and unfriendly and were not hired for their personality. This was reconfirmed when we subsequently ask for tea in the room instead of coffee and were told they did not furnish tea and we should go buy it at the Bistro. Not withstanding their attitude the rooms were well maintained and very nice. This is a good place for a kids for the hotel has a nice pool with water slide (See Photo). A large IMAX theater across the street. The hotel also has city trolley service to the waterfront on Friday - Sunday so you do not need to pay for city parking. A couple restaurants are located nearby and breakfast is served at the Bistro for $10 which is reasonable for Marriott prices. I would stay here again inspire of the surely staff. A small outlet mall is located next door.

You know what to expect when you come to a courtyard. This place is exactly what you would expect.

Clean room and comfortable bed. except for the old tea bag in the coffee pot.

Located real close to 401 in a outlet mall. It is a few km from downtown.

The room could have been cleaner, the pullout couch in my room had popcorn, chips and a marble underneath it, the rug was dingy looking. There was something wrong with the toilet and it didn't always flush. BUT.... There was a copy of the globe and mail outside the room daily. There was a bar fridge and micowave in addition to the standard coffee maker most hotels have. The staff was helpful and vert nice. There is also a great outlet mall just next to the hotel.

Thank you very much for staying with us!

We appreciate you taking the time to write your review of your stay.So sorry to hear we needed to improve on our cleanliness and the maintenance matter of the toilet. We certainly do not expect anything less than the best for our guests, and we certainly did not provide that for your stay.

We are happy to hear that overall we are in the positive, though we certainly could have improved on that. Please accept our apologies.

We hope you will revisit us on a future stay in Kingston and give us a chance to redeem ourselves.

Yours in hospitality,

The Courtyard Team!

Stayed one night at this hotel, which is in the low-to-middle brackets for cost. Brand-new and sparkling clean. Excellent room design. Good friendly service; various refreshments available. A Starbucks cafe that seems to be open 18 hrs a day and serves a hot breakfast. Complimentary newspaper in the lounges and at the doorsteps of rooms. The water slide wasn't open-- a drawback for families. Two small complaints. First, the clerk frowned when looking up my reservation, perhaps, because I had booked online through an agency. When I was departing, a second clerk requested I call the hotel chain before booking anything through an agency, to "obtain the same price." She then said the hotel could "suggest a range of options," which sounded like the hotel would push for you to upgrade to meet the original room price. This was awkward and strange -- can't remember the last time a hotel groused about a booking at reduced rates. Secondly, the hotel is very hard to spot in the surrounding streets when you exit the highway. It needs either a large, illuminated sign on top, or very visible street signs, right at the exit ramps. Right now, all you see when you come into the actual street is the cheaper and older motel by the restaurant strip -- don't be tempted by that choice.

This is a new offering in hotels in Kingston. As such it was clean and fresh and an overall great place to stay. Rooms were spacious. Fun shopping, dining and entertainment within walking distance. And just off the highway for easy traveller access.

Nice room, got a reasonable rate. Close to the 401, close to restaurants etc. Unlike most roadside hotels this place had no free breakfast. With cheap choices around we didn't go for the restaurant in the hotel. Overpriced we thought.

Also no bathtub in our room, just a shower. A trend we don't really care for.

Greetings from Kingston!

Thank you very much for staying with us and taking the time to submit a review here!

We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and appreciate your feedback.

We do not provide a complimentary breakfast, as we strive to provide a quality, freshly prepared and served experience with a wide variety of options. We also do have rates with options of included breakfast that are a great deal for parties of two and especially those with children.

Our hotel has a variety of rooms with either a tub or a shower only. That is certainly a question we neglected to pose upon your check-in. Please accept my apologies for that. If making a reservation, please do not hesitate to request a room with a tub. We would be most happy to oblige.

Thank you and have safe and happy travels!

Yours in hospitality,
Matthew Fry
General Manager

Brand new hotel! Everything impeccable, including the rooms and decor. Close to shopping and restaurants. Pool and waterslide open on time and the kids had a blast. Not worth buying the breakfast package. It is NOT a continental breakfast as I thought but, given a choice of only a few pre-selected food choices. Almost everything on the menu had eggs so, if you don't like eggs, you're going to be hungry! Would recommend the stay here without breakfast.

Room Tip: upgrade to a suite
