Perhaps the best thing about this property is its location -- across the street from a big shopping area in Homewood.
On to the review.
This is an older Courtyard -- probably built in the 80s. The only thing "new" about this hotel is the lobby/Bistro area. The rest of the hotel is OLD, OLD, OLD! The first word that comes to mind is "dingy." I stayed in a one-bedroom suite. The sofa was made of a artificial fabric that was so scratchy that I could not sit on it comfortably. The chairs had rubber cushions --reminiscent of those you see in hospital rooms. The bathroom was clean but old and dingy. The bed was not as comfortable as those usually found at Marriott properties.
An annoying aspect of my in-room experience was the WIFI. For starters, the signal was intermittent -- going from five bars to zero bars. Next, it was slow. I could not do Google or Yahoo searches. Quite often I had to switch the WIFI off and on on my computer to get it to work. I was very disappointed.
As a Platinum member, I've stayed at a lot of Courtyards. I'd put this one in the bottom third.
