Being on a whirlwind business trip this month, I arrived at Courtyard in Weston late on a weekday night. I asked for a morning wakeup call and also asked that a taxi arrive at 8 a.m. to take my colleagues and me to our meeting about 7 miles away.
No wakeup call ever came (thankfully I do have backup system for wakeup when combatting with jetlag-induced exhaustion and have to make a meeting or a flight). Worse though, the cab didn't arrive at the appointed time either... so a caveat for those relying on taxis for transportation: this place does not have a taxi stand and so must be called in advance. A hired car did not appear until 30 minutes after our original request time. Not sure if the night operator had not placed either the wakeup call or taxi requests or whether there were other glitches that were not relayed to me.
The room itself was lovely: quite spacious, zippy internet, plenty of outlets for my electronic devices, a mini fridge. The hotel gym, which I only peeked at since I had no time to work out, seemed well-equipped too, with free weights and cardio machines.
I don't want to ding this hotel because of my morning experience with the wakeup call and late cab. The morning front desk clerk did deduct $20 from my bill. I would just suggest to other travelers to reconfirm any arrangements you are making with the front desk.
