“Great Downtown Hotel Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

As a travel agent, I have booked small groups at this hotel. From all the feedback from clients and my personal experience in working with the hotel staff and closely with the group during their stay, I can assure you that if you are in Amarillo on business or pleasure this is a premier hotel with a big city feel in a small town. Upscale, in a historic building, this hotel is beautifully appointed. Starbucks in the lobby offers a convenient and refreshing breakfast. The lobby is gracious and welcoming. Great parking, close to good restaurants and wine bar, this downtown area is convenient to anywhere you need to be or see! The rooms are spacious and delightful. It's as if you have your own private suite! Good spaces for business meetings or just meeting friends. No matter what kind of traveler you are, couples, family, or solo, you will be pleasantly surprised to find such great service at great rates in this darling of a hotel in downtown Amarillo Texas!

Room Tip: The corner room with large windows overlooking the city center street is a favorite. However, with o...

Nice hotel in a historic building in downtown Amarillo. Nice little historical displays around the lobby showing some of the hotel's past. Great beds, nice big rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Starbucks in nice lobby for coffee and hot breakfast. Steps away from Ohms and Crush Wine Bar. Both places worth a visit if in town. Few mile drive to a Route 66 area, 5 miles to Big Texan Steakhouse, 20 miles to Palo Duro Canyon.

I would stay here again.

Room Tip: We got a high floor for a better view although downtown Amarillo doesn't really have views...

Had a stop over in Amarillo on a roadtrip and stayed at this Courtyard in downtown. Very nice facitliy and rooms were very spacious and clean. I was suprised by how quiet the hotel was as well. The staff was very friendly and parking very convenient. Hotel is located close to lots of differnet places to eat or drink as well, which is always a plus. Definitely would stay here again when in Amarillo.

Everything about this hotel is great. We had a top floor, corner huge room with lots of windows. Beautiful views, especially of the sun rising over Amarillo. Nice staff, easy garage parking. I will always stay here when in Amarillo.

Room Tip: Ask for a floor on the top floor.

Historic building downtown, newly repurposed, nicely done. Room was a generous size, 8th floor afforded a great view. Large bathroom, lots of closet space. Very quiet. Good bistro for breakfast downstairs. Quite a step up from the other chains in town. Some problems checking in due to their internet being down, but the staff worked diligently to resolve.

I've stayed at this location 10 nights in the last 12 months. This weekend was the worst. We were next to a room that first had a party...then went bad! Couple fighting, crying and cussing (I know all about his Mother!) until the security should up at 3:00am. When I talked to the front desk at 9:00am (with very little sleep) I found out the couple was staying two more nights, but they would move them or me.

I was out of my room from 9:30 until 3:00pm. The room was never cleaned. At 4:30, someone brought towels and shampoo (based on another call to the front desk) but never offered to clean the room.

I am a Marriott rewards member, but this may be the last for me. I can understand unruly guests, but the lack of professionalism of the staff is something I won't ignore.

Room Tip: Down the street...

Thank you for letting us know about your experience for your most recent trip. We apologize you stay was unsatisfactory. When our front desk staff was advised the following morning, we offered the option of changing rooms and our offer was declined. While we understand that changing rooms can be an inconvenience that was the best solution we had. Please let our staff know immediately of any noise complaints or other issues and we will address them immediately allowing you and all guests an enjoyable experience.

I stayed here for 2 nights on business. The Hotel and room were very clean and spacious. The Bistro was very convenient with great coffee and lots of healthy menu items. My room had plenty of work space with free internet. The bed was very comfortable. The gym has just 2 ellipticals and 2 treadmills for equipment, but that never seemed to be a problem as no more than 3 people were in there at one time. They also had free weights which was nice. My only issue with the room was with the heater that was loud as it came on so it kept waking me up in the middle of the night. This could have been a problem with just my room, so I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I had a corner room - that may be why it was more spacious.
