“Good location for a busy weekend visit to Purdue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We were visiting Purdue University on a busy weekend. This was a great choice for our trip. The trip to campus is about 10 minutes. Very easy drive. Near hotel are lots of restaurants, and some places to shop if you have a college student in need of supplies. The hotel seemed to be almost sold out and still was very quiet. Rooms were clean, and beds were very comfortable. Only one small issue in that the water pressure in the shower is not good at all. There is free coffee in the lobby, and also a place to buy breakfast. If you can not get a place right on campus, this is a great choice for a college visit.

Thank you for the great review. We pride ourselves on our great service and amenities. With that in mind, We are in the process of replacing the low flow shower heads that are currently in the hotel with new shower heads with a 20% increase in water flow. We have had a great response from guests in our test rooms and we look forward to you letting us know what you think of them on your next visit.

Thank you again, and we hope to see you soon.

Not a bad place to stop. Easy parking. Affordable. A bit away from campus, but suitable for a one-night stay. Clean. Friendly. Nothing remarkable, but nothing horrible either. A very easy 2 hour drive from Chicago if you are traveling that direction.

We stayed over at the Courtyard for an event at Purdue and got what we expected from this chain. Spacious room, friendly reception, easy access. Only downfall is location: while the blurb on their website states they are near Purdue, it's still a good 15 minutes with the car to West-Lafayette.

We were driving through and a good stopping point for us. Disappointed in the lack of a real bar or restaurant but there are many other restaurants near by. Service for breakfast was slow. Rooms were spacious and comfortable.

Our hotel incorporates the latest in Courtyard by Marriott design with our exciting Bistro concept. The Bistro offers a full breakfast selection made to order from 630-930am on weekdays and 7-10 on weekends. It reopens in the evening for dinner, dessert, and drinks from 5-10pm daily. Our bar features a full selection of Marriott approved wines, beers and liquors.

I apologize if you experienced service that was not up to your expectations. If this is ever the case in the future, please be sure to speak to a department manager or MOD so that we can address the situation immediately. We pride ourselves on the quality of our staff and service and hope that you will provide us the opportunity in the future to demonstrate the world class service for which we are known.

This hotel is beautiful. The hotel is tastefully decorated with Updated modern furnishings. We stayed in a standard king room, which was much larger than i had expected it to be. The staff was very friendly! Pool is quite small, and was cloudy but my 4 year old loved it.

We only stayed at this hotel for one night, but I wish it could have been more! We got to stay in the "King Spa Suite" which has a separate bedroom with a door. There is also a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom. Everything was very clean, and the staff was extremely nice and friendly. We had a small issue with our reservation, but they quickly fixed it and were very kind about it. Will definitely stay in this hotel again!

Hotel is right I65 but about 15-20 mins from the university in West Lafayette. Not a big deal for us, but should be factored into travel time. We stayed for one night. Checked in at 10:30pm. Room was clean and updated with modern furnishings. The pull out table under the desk was great as it allowed the three of us to bring in and eat our dinner (buffalo wild wings) and sit at a full table rather than drawing straws for a small coffee table or desk. Plenty of outlets for multiple cell, iPad , laptop and camera charging. 2Q beds, very soft. Too soft for DH and I since we prefer rock hard beds, but teenage daughter (17) said it was fine. Very spacious shower with large glass wall (no tub), very clean. Only downside was very very low water pressure. Maybe because we were on a high floor? For $99 a night would stay here again.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a tub vs shower if you have little ones.

Thank you for the great review. Our hotel is one of the new model Courtyards and as such the majority of our rooms provide only the oversized showers. We do however, have several rooms with the traditional shower/tub combination. If you are looking for a tub, it is good to have this noted at the time of the reservation so that we can best accommodate your expectations.

Thank you again, and we hope to see you soon.
