My partner and I stayed at the Courtyard Marriott in early Jan 2014. We booked using points but this review is based on what the full price would have been worth.
Firstly, the taxi driver, and most of the staff at the Taxi rank at the HK airport had never heard of the hotel and were really not too sure of the location even thought its quite straight forward (in my view). My suggestion is to take a print out, in Chinese of the name and location, that might help. The price was $375HKD on the way there (including tolls and baggage costs) and $330 on he way back (not sure why it was different)
Second, to my only real problem with this hotel, the location. It is quite far west on the island and does take 20 mins or so to reach the first MTR train. Now you can also take a tram, which only takes 8-10 mins but I would really prefer a location far closer to Central / Wan Chai etc so that most for the aspects of HK you want are 5 mins walk away. At the end of the day, its not a huge problem as the tram makes it simple, I would just prefer one closer.
The reception staff were efficient and friendly getting us checked in within a few minutes. The room was really quite large for a HK room with a very comfortable king sized bed. The bathroom was quite large also and very modern. As per most HK hotels there was about 40 channels on the TV with lots of English options.
I can not comment on the food in the hotel as we did not eat there. There is a circle K, Seven 11 and Star bucks within 30 seconds walk of the hotel so that makes it very convenient. Given they offer a fridge its nice to be able to get a few drinks and store them in your room for when required....
All in all we can highly recommend the hotel. The rooms are very comfortable, the beds were super comfortable, there are convenience stores a stones throw away I only wished it was a little closer to the main action of HK but with the trams right out the front, its not really a big problem. You will not be disappointed if staying at the Hong Kong Courtyard hotel.
