I stayed two nights at the Courtyard Marriott in Burbank, and it was a very pleasant experience. I wasn't expecting much more than a standard hotel that caters to a business clientele. And in regard to the room and its amenities, that is exactly what you get. However, the "courtyard" area outside the main lobby and the pool are the real stars of this property.
The room was standard, perhaps a little dark because it faced another building. But it was comfortable, and it had a mini-fridge to store drinks. There's a Target within walking distance to purchase items to stock the fridge, if necessary (stay away from the overpriced bottled water in the room!). There are a lot of places to eat nearby in the shopping center adjacent to the hotel.
The pool area and the grounds outside are particularly beautiful. There are plenty of seats and tables to do work or have a meeting, and wifi was available outside as well. The lobby bar has a happy hour where all drinks are 1/2 price (even "call drinks"). They'll serve you outside so you can enjoy the lovely weather. At night, there are tiki torches and a fire pit outside, which was really magical.
A few minor quibbles: The pool ran out of towels, and it took awhile before new ones were delivered. The business center uses an outdated proprietary internet browser that was unable to access my email from iCloud. Fortunately, the front desk allowed me to email them a document from my phone, so they were able to print out the document that I couldn't access in the business center.
If you have the time to enjoy the recreational areas outside of your room, it is worth staying at this Courtyard Marriott.
