“Great clean Marriott Courtyard as expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

Lives up to expectations for a new Marriott Courtyard. Clean, new facility, nice rooms, 24-hr market, breakfast buffet, valet parking, friendly staff, welcome refreshments, and all at a very reasonable price. All good!

First time to AC. The hotel is fair enough but in an area surrounded by rundown houses and people standing around looking very sad - this is not Vegas.

The room was in need of decorating, but the worst part was being able to hear conversations through the walls and other toilets flushing in the night. Very noisy toilet flushing systems.

The best part of the hotel are it's staff. Very friendly and helpful. The staff would bring me back here, but the location would not.

Room Tip: East end of hotel for sea views.

My wife and I stayed here 12/4-12/6/12. We attended the real estate convention so, as a convention special, breakfast was included. The Marriott is right next to Resorts and Trump and across from the Atlantic City Bar and Grill. Our room was clean and comfortable. There was no in-room safe but safety deposit boxes were available at the lobby desk. There was a nice exercise room with a hot tub open 24 hours. The breakfast had a person making eggs to order and you could make your own waffles. Sausage and bacon were also available. Valet parking was $10 per night and that included unlimited in and out. There was a full bar open in the evening and the bartenders, Victoria and Amanda were very pleasant as was all the staff. If you don't like staying in the mega casinos, this is the place for you.

Room Tip: There are 17 floors. If you don't want to wait for the elevator, pick a lower floor.

The Courtyard Marriott provides the standard you would expect of this chain: nicely appointed, clean and spacious rooms with free wifi, coffee/tea and a much better than average shower and good night's sleep. What sets this particular Marriott apart is the attentive, caring staff. After checking into the room we received a call to see if everything was all right. From the breakfast staff to the lounge staff to the folks at the front desk, I felt like I was taken care of at all times. The hotel was quiet yet very close to the Trump Taj Mahal and boardwalk. The breakfast buffet, at $10.95 is well worth the price and includes made to order omelets and make your own waffles. Do ask for a room on the higher floors for a better view. The staff here make the difference!

Room Tip: Choose a high floor for a great view.

I stayhe hotel here on business and found the property to be well managed and the staff very professional and friendly. Valet parking is the only option, but its only $10 per day. This Courtyard does not have the new Bistro thing they have at others, but the food and service has very good.

Room Tip: If you like Casinos, this may not be the place for you. If you like clean, quiet and professional...

I stayed here recently for business. I was very pleased with the courtesy shown at checkin, and the additional gift they gave for Marriott Rewards members. Nice touch! Valet parking is the only real hotel parking option. It's not the best, but at least it is available. The room was okay sized. I was a little surprised that the insides of the elevators and areas near the elevators were so shabby and outdated, but, overall that's not a huge deal. I'd say the location was only so-so. You still have are a few miles away from the big casinos.
I would stay here again for business.

Stayed here on business a couple weeks after Hurricane Sandy. The hotel seems to have fared very well, minus 1 of the 3 elevators. I was disappointed that there is only valet parking, at $10+per day.. plus the tip every time you need to retrieve it. Just may be me, but I hate mandatory valet parking at hotels or restaurants.

The staff and check in were friendly and efficient. The twin bed room, I would call it 2 full size beds, not queen, was roomy and nicely appointed. It had a nice sized walk in tiled shower, with a good sized single sink vanity. The toiletries were of good quality.Bed was comfortable. One nice feature, not standard at every Courtyard, was a small 'frig in the room. No microwave in the room was a minus. Another minus was the inconsistent internet connection. It would be fine for a while, then just 'hang' and say there was none, only to come back with a page refresh. It was free however and easy to connect with.

The breakfast buffet (or made to order omelets/waffles) is normally $10.95, but our group was free for Platinum members. It had a very nice variety of fresh cut fruits, oatmeal with fixings and the aforementioned made to order. We had nice servers for basically coffee each day, especially Victoria.

The valet car retrieval was very fast and friendly each day.

A nice choice if you don't want to stay at a casino property in AC... just wouldn't walk around too far at night, even to nearby casinos.
