“Great weekend in AC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

I came in on sunday afternoon. The hotel participates in NFL activities which the staff was dressed up with favorite teams, etc.
They had popcorn & snacks out for the guests.

The hotel was very nice and the rooms very clean.

Alot of reviews people were concerned about outside area.
Area is well lit and 1 block away from casinos. Walk down to Boardwalk by the North Carolina ave way to Boardwalk

Had a great time

Have a group reservation for tomorrow. 3 large adults are expected to sleep in two double beds. Call to to switch to king and pull out sofa, none available. Okay I need a roll away, sorry we do not have those at this hotel. Oh, I can upgrade you to a suite for $20 more. Great, I will take it. Sorry, I made a mistake it is $120 more. Urgh!

I am afraid the hotel has no way of knowing the size of and the number of people staying in the room that they have booked for their stay. Local fire codes do not allow for rollaway beds to be placed in guest rooms. Your best option would be to book a second room for the three adults in your party if you feel that you all will not be comfortable in one room. We are happy to put the rooms next door to, or across the hall from each other. There is another Marriott just outside of Atlantic City if our hotel does not suit your needs - there will be no penalty for cancellation. We are sure though that once you have actually stayed with us, you will be pleased that you did.

We had originally booked a room at The Showboat because we were going to be in town for a concert at the HOB. After reading the many negative reviews at The Showboat, we canceled our reservations and chose to book the Courtyard by Marriott based on its great reviews. We arrived early and were greeted with prompt, courteous service by the valet guys and the front desk staff. This service continued throughout our stay. Valet parking was mandatory, at a very reasonable $12 per day fee and when needing our vehicle, it was quickly brought out to us.

We were on the 17th floor and had a side view of the boardwalk area. The view wasn't the most pleasant in the daytime, as one block back from the boardwalk area, you could definitely see signs of poverty. We weren't there for the view, so it really didn't matter.

Our room was spotless and the only negative I could find were just a few worn areas on some of the wood furniture pieces. Otherwise, the room, walls, carpets, upholstery and linens were in excellent condition.

The bathroom was well lit, with a large vanity perfect in size to have all toiletries out of the suitcase. The bathtub/fixtures looked brand new. There were no signs of rust or mold/mildew. The water pressure did have a few moments during each shower where it appeared to weaken and go back to full pressure.The towels were thick, fluffy and smelled fresh.

The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of extra pillows, as requested at booking.

The a/c worked perfectly and we were able to have the fan run all night, which always helps to drown out most noises. Our first night, we were awakened by guests in the next room at 330am. For a good 40 minutes, they sounded as if they were have an argument. Finally, they must have settled it or given up and fallen asleep.

We did not dine here, so there are no comments.

As far as safety in walking to and from the boardwalk area, we felt comfortable enough that we were planning on walking back to the hotel from the HOB after the concert. We ended up taking a cab because I was too cold that evening. The cab fare from the Revel to the Courtyard was about $7.

If you are looking for clean accommodations, friendly staff and don't mind being off of the boardwalk area this hotel is the perfect choice.

If ever in AC again, we would certainly stay here.

I stayed at the Courtyard this past weekend with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. The rooms were very clean and the property seemed to be more updated than a lot of the casino/hotels along the boardwalk. It wasn't too far of a walk from all the action is either, and it was kind of nice to be removed. The only downside is, the streets are a little bit sketchy at night so if you're going out to Harrah's or the Borgata or even one of the casinos or clubs on the boardwalk it would be advised to take a cab and definitely not to walk alone.

Overall it was a really nice weekend, the staff was helpful in getting us a late check-out and the valet service was great for getting us cabs and parking our cars for the weekend. The only complaint we had was the beds were really tiny (we had a double room) which made sleeping a bit difficult at times.

If I'm ever back in AC, I'll be looking to stay at this property again.

I stayed in a King two room suite with two friends. Although the suite was immaculate and very comfortable, we were annoyed to find that there is no door separating the bathroom from the bedroom.This would be fine for a couple but was inconvenient for a group of friends. I called the front desk but they said that all the suites were this way so we had no option but to stay there. There are doors for the bathroom portion with the toilet so no worries there. Our workaround was to close the bedroom door and wait in the living room whenever someone was showering or taking a bath. So just be aware if you are considering booking one of their suites with a group of friends. The front desk staff was very helpful and gave us a map and took the time to point out all of the nearby attractions. Everyone we encountered at the hotel was friendly and helpful. Parking is mandatory valet which was a breeze (as it should have been for the $20 a day price tag). The hotel restaurant also offers a delicious brunch (I think it was $16). The hotel is comfortable, clean and in a great location-- close to the boardwalk and there's a jitney stop right in front of the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to those who aren't booking a suite with a group of friends.

Stayed in this Courtyard for 1 night in April. They let us check in about a half hour before the official check in time. Our room was very clean and nicely furnished, definitely newer than many of the hotels on the Boardwalk (accdg to reviews I read). It's close enough to walk to the boardwalk about 2 blocks if I remember correctly, close to the end where Resorts and Taj Mahal are. Overall a good experience. Didn't use the free internet connection. I'd definitely consider staying here again and would recommend it if you don't need to be right on the boardwalk. I'm only giving it 4 stars because I was kind of disappointed that parking and breakfast are not free.

Came into town with my 2 sons to celebrate the youngest 21st birthday...the weekend was spent gambling, drinking and sleeping in no particular order. The hotel was clean and smoke free with a cheerful staff. It's a couple of short blocks off the boardwalk and at no time including the wee hours of the morning did we not feel safe walking around. FYI there is a daily valet parking charge. I would stay at this property again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 14th floor facing the ocean but you can't see it from this property
