“My Choice When Traveling To Amarillo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Have stayed here in the past and this hotel continues to be at its best. Like others who have reviewed this place, downtown Amarillo is very quiet on night and weekends, with just a Mexican place open on Sundays (across the street). Good night's sleep every night. I shall return!

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the 7th to 9th floors for the view of downtown!

The hotel itself is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and it's a great choice for a weekend stay. The check-in procedure requires parking at the bottom and carting everything to your room first...then parking. The only problem we had was our key rooms both stopping working and we couldn't get into the building without calling the desk. The hotel doesn't have a swimming pool, which is something that would have added immensely to this property. I booked the downtown location because it would be easy to get to everything and we like going out in the evenings for drinks. The night-life is almost non-existent downtown. We had drinks at Acupulco across the street then Rain (inside the Paramount) the next night and made do with what we had. The view from the 9th floor was awesome, so if you want a view just ask for the highest floor available and they'll put you there.

Stayed here one (week)night when passing through Amarillo. The area of downtown was a ghost town - we drove down the interstate for dinner. The hotel itself is typical Courtyard, clean, spacious rooms. Front desk was helpful. Because the area doesn't have the safest feel, I was happy to see the parking garage.

Spent two nights at this property and can't say enough good things about it. Had a corner city view king suite.The only things that need tweaking are the hours of the cafe...they should get room service because the food in the neighborhood ain't that great. Expand the menu another 4 or 5 items and stay open til Midnight for those getting in around 9...by the time you are getting your bags down and into your room...they are closing downstairs.

The parking situation is a bit annoying with no elevators on each level so everything must be packed and unpacked from a few available parking spots outside the garage door exit from the hotel.

It is a BEAUTIFUL and historically rich hotel and definitely would stay again. Just avoid Acapulco Mexican Restaurant across the street. Horrible food and service. It needs a Bar Rescue episode done. Place smells horrible too.

Ice machine on the 10th floor was broken so that was truly the only annoyance having to go to other floors to get ice and the TV in our room causes you to have a sore neck the way it is positioned to watch it from bed.

Room Tip: Corner King City View Suite

Our Historic Hotel is one of many historic properties located in downtown. I hope you had the opportunity to visit our Courthouse located a few blocks away. During some of the summer months on Wednesdays you can enjoy lunch and live music on the Courthouse lawn. We have several local restaurants within walking distance, we hope you have the opportunity to try one of these on your next visit. Thank you for staying with us.

The room is large and open. Two queen beds and a pull out couch. Bathroom is updated and clean. Slept very well. Didn't hear any noise from the hallway or neighbors. There were lots of clubs across the street. Very noisy when we came in but we could not hear it in our room. We would stay here again.

The hotel room was very nice. It had a couch in a living room area that was so comfortable that I fell asleep on it for several hours. The size of the room is perfect. Beds are also extremely comfortable. Very good location near the freeway but far enough not to hear it. Would definitely stay here again.

My stay at the Courtyard by Marriott Amarillo Downtown was wonderful. The room was very spacious and the view great! The bed was so comfortable and the room and hotel were very well appointed and clean.
This hotel has such amazing history and the owner has taken the time to keep the character of the hotel but also update it with no expense spared. The manager of the hotel took the time to tell us about the history of the hotel and the area around it. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating.

The downtown area is very quaint and a really good mexican restaurant is across the street called Acapulco. In the hotel, itself, there's a nice roomy sitting area and a Starbucks/breakfast area.

I will definitely make a point to stay at this hotel when I come through Texas again. I encourage you to plan a stop in Amarillo and stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 9th floor and there were 10 floors. It's nice to be up higher because you can...
