“Ok Courtyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2011

I just recently stayed here for an overnight stay. First off, I did not hear any noise even though the airport is nearby.
The beds were pretty comfortable and are good for a good nights rest. The rooms are ok, not like the newer Courtyard hotels. It did have a big flat screen TV. But some parts of the room looked a bit dated.
Some of the desk agents were not wearing name tags which is a Marriott standard. The hotel itself is ok and I would stay there again if in the area.

failed to check tripadvisor before booking, relied on Courtyard brand. Big mistake. Staff lethargic and disinterested. Rooms and hallways dark, dingy, smelly, noisy. Fitness room is tiny and has one broken bike, unbelieveable. Only positive is proximity to airport but there are many nicer properties in same price range nearby. I tried to bail but they were all booked. Sigh.

Courtyard continues to be a well thought out business hotel. Switches are in the right place, plenty of outlets for computer and phone charger, no surprises. That's fine by me.

The exercise room is tiny. The pool is small too. The decor is uninspiring. But the people are nice, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. I checked in easily, did my business, slept, and checked out without a care.

For me, a business hotel is like a baseball umpire, the less I notice it the better. I barely noticed this room, and that's a good thing.

This hotel is one of the two in the direct area, it is in a convenient location, the staff are fairly helpful, and friendly. Very clean room, and convenient for smokers, although it is advertised as a "smoke-free" hotel, we had no problem smoking out the door on the first floor, or balcony's on other levels, i'm pretty sure every room is equipped with a door or balcony. Room service was prompt, and friendly. I slept like a baby both nights, there is some noise because of the airport being so close, but the room was pretty much sound proof, and we had no problems.

With Doral being such a growing hub for business, I was astounded at how "un" Marriott the Courtyard Marriott in Doral is. From the lack of attentiveness and service at the front desk, poor on-site facilities (the fitness center is a joke and must be seen as no words could convey how much of a joke it is), ridiculously slow internet connection (provided by a telco in Wichita, KS), and dated decor, this a serious blotch on an otherwise strong Marriott brand. As a loyal Marriott Rewards members, this is one of the few times I would sacrifice points and choose an alternative brand. Avoid this property.

Definitely overpriced for what you get. I understand that Miami is a humid place, but there is no reason that the hallways (which are completely enclosed) should be without air conditioning! The room itself was fine other than the fact that it was obviously a smoking room before the hotel became nonsmoking. Other than that it was what you would expect from a courtyard.

If your rate says that it includes breakfast, they still make you sign a slip of paper saying that it is $10. I crossed the amount out and never was charged, but be careful. It was a little strange.

Front desk staff were helpful though, and there was free internet and a great business center.

We stayed at the Courtyard Marriot during Mother's Day weekend. The hotel was ok, but not really what I expected from a Courtyard. The desk staff were exceptional. The absolute best. The staff were all I expected from a Marriott hotel and more. They were very nice and check in and check out was a breeze. The hotel had free parking which was good. But there was only one way in. The hotel had free internet service which was great. The snack bar was very expensive. Restaurants were close by, but nothing on site other than the snack bar. I probably would not stay here again unless I absolutely had to. The rooms were nothing to brag about. They still have old model TVs, but they also have mini-refrigerators.
