“Great Location & Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for almost a week while our home was being repaired. Good restaurants and shopping nearby. Staff very friendly and eager to assist. Lobby was very nice and contemporary. Room was acceptable & clean but the decor was not as nice as other Marriott Courtyard locations we have visited. I know this hotel had undergone renovations on the lobby and rooms. Perhaps our room had yet to be renovated. The room (with 2 queen size beds) felt small and lacked a microwave. There was a microwave in the gift shop area which was unusual and not the most convenient place. In addition, our room came with a very small, old, and beat up refrigerator. I have never seen such a refrigerator in the worst dorm room, let alone a hotel of Marriott's standard. Nonetheless, the staff replaced our refrigerator with a more acceptable one once we brought it to their attention. Why they thought a beat up, rusted on the inside fridge would be acceptable for any guest beats me (minor infraction). Complimentary tea, coffee, and water was provided which was great, but no free breakfast. Would certainly return to the hotel, but less likely when traveling with our children.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay; it was a pleasure having you and your family here with us for a week. I would like to inform you that our rooms do not have refrigerator and microwave; these amenities are given upon request, usually during the reservation process or at check in. I do apologize that an old refrigerator was brought to your room; I did disused this issue with the housekeeping manager and can assure you this will not occur again. All of our guest room refrigerators were replaced recently and are very new. Our lobby area were recently renovated, but our rooms are going under renovation by December 2012. All Courtyards have transitioned towards the Bistro concept, which includes fast, fresh and healthy choices for breakfast and dinner. Unfortunately, we no longer have the free breakfast, but we do have the “Stay for Breakfast” rate which includes breakfast for 2 to 4 at a reasonable price. Thank you for choosing to stay at the Wilmington Brandywine courtyard. We hope to see you again in the future.

When I walked in I was met by" Hello how can I help you" and a
smile. The service was fast and finding my room was easy. The room and bath were both clean. Having the sink outside the bath helped with two in the room helped a lot. The bed were big and comfortable. With the lack of a free breakfast the beautiful dining area with a nice menu and even nicer servers made up for it. The hotel was close to both fun shopping and restaurants.

Great location with a very helpful staff. Especially front desk employee Christine Song. A wonderful network of trails to run, hike or bike on right in the corner of the parking lot. Several convenient restaurants nearby.

My 2 major issues with my stay was customer service. There was a problem with the drain in the bathtub. I alerted the desk at 8 AM when I left for the day and when I returned after 6 PM -- nothing had been done. They assured me that issue would be resolved by the time I got back from dinner. It was not. I was told it would be fixed that night. It was not. As we had a long drive, we left at 7 AM on Sunday using the automatic check out feature. The desk clerk followed us out to the parking lot demanding to know if we had checked out and paid for our rooms. Not the sharpest pencil in the box!

I was surprised by how beautiful this hotel was. The lobby was grand and receptionist very warm and welcoming. The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The fitness center was state of the art and the pool/hot tub were not grand but did the trick.The only down side is that they do not have a free breakfast. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the hotel on final leg of east coast trip and found that Christina Song was most pleasant and helpful. Her demeanor and smile were terrific..was surprised however that breakfast was not available without charge. Think when you spend good money for hotel service breakfast should be provided.

Room Tip: Stayed at other Courtyards and the beds were much more comfortable.

Thank you for taking the time to inform us about your stay. We sincerely appreciate you choosing us as your preferred hotel. All Courtyards do not have complimentary breakfast because of the bistro concept which includes a made to order menu. Should we acquire another opportunity to have you stay with us, please contact the hotel and for our “stay for breakfast rate” which includes free breakfast for 4 or less for a reasonable price. It was a pleasure to have you stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.

When visiting family in Brandywine section of Wilmington, we sometimes stay over and always choose this hotel which is nicely located just off of route 202. It is a nice looking hotel, well maintained and very clean. Rooms are quiet and comfortable. Air conditioner worked very well. There is an indoor pool and hot tub which we enjoy using-if time permits. The staff is pleasant and helpful.

Room Tip: Our room, which had a King size bed was smaller than our relative's room which had 2 queen size...
