“Good Hotel...very pleased.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Literally 2 minutes from airport and free 7 nights to leave our car. Shuttle extremely prompt upon our arrival back and very nice man..I think his name was Don. Clean room, nice TV. I would have given it a 5 for this type of hotel except no free breakfast like Comfort Inn.

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We do understand that many other hotel brands charge breakfast as part of the room rate. Courtyard has decided to offer guests the option to have breakfast with us rather than factoring it into the guest's room rate. We have a variety of options and price points to choose from as well as proudly serving Starbucks coffee. We hope to see you again on a return trip to Louisville!

Hotel is an average Courtyard compared to others. However the proximity to the airport could be a problem for you if you are a sensitive sleeper. The UPS hub is located in Louisville and UPS runs throughout the night. Good location if you need to be by the airport or Kentucky Fair Grounds.

Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your feedback. We are indeed an airport property and we believe we have a fantastic location. If we have any indication that a guest may be a light sleeper we will try to place them on a lower floor to help reduce noise. We also keep a stock of earplugs if needed. I hope that your rest was not too disrupted and we hope to see you back on a return trip to Louisville.

We had a great stay. Shuttle service took us to where we wanted to go nearby. Meals at the bistro were delicious. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat. Only downside was not many restaurants within walking distance.

A very clean hotel. Staff was very courteous and always smiling. I did not use any of the amenities because I wanted to see the city and environs but they were there if I really needed them. Very convenient to the Standiford Airport and plus there's an in house shuttle if needed. I did not know that when I booked my reservation.

Very excited to visit the Louisville area and was super excited about staying at the Courtyard. When my family & I checked in, our keys wouldn't work. I went to the front desk to get the keys reactivated while my husband stayed with our luggage at our room door. But when I got back, my husband said he heard the tv on in the room. We knocked on the door but no one responded. We unlocked the door and we immediately saw someone's personal belongings scattered throughout the room. We quickly closed the door and returned to the front desk, again.
We explained what had happened to the attendant. She profusely apologized for the mistake and explained what had happened. She even offered us free breakfast for the next morning. I was satisfied overall with our stay but seeing how easily we were able to access someone else's room, was a little eye-opening. , I'd have a hard time recommending staying there to a friend. :-(

I made a reservation at this hotel for a large church event we were attending in Louisville. I made a reservation for five rooms. I was later able to make reservations at another Courtyard that was closer to the event so I called this hotel to cancel my reservations. When I called I told the front desk that I needed to cancel all five of my reservations. A month later I had five charges on our Church credit card statement. I then called the hotel and was informed that they showed my reservation cancelled so they would have never charged my card. Several phone calls and conversation later I was told this by the hotel every time. I even left messages for the Manager but never got a returned call. I then filed fraudulent charges through my bank. The hotel came back and stated they actually had charged my card but it was due to a no-show reservation. They had cancelled only the room under my name but not the remaining four rooms. The 5th charge was done for an unknown party on a different day that was not even associated with us. So again I called the hotel and spoke to the General Manager himself. I was informed that this was my problem because I did not give the names of the other parties staying in the rooms. I informed him I just assumed that since I made the reservation that they were all under my name and the clerk never asked for the other names or offered me a confirmation number. He was persistent that the additional room had to have been someone who attends our church even though I repeatedly informed him it was not. I had told the lady I spoke to, I had FIVE reservations to cancel!! He told me that he had a small hotel and he could not afford to give me that much money back (you’re a Marriott) and that it was my fault for not understanding the ins and outs of how a hotel works. He offered to meet me half way on the charges. I again called the customer service department unsatisfied with this response. I asked several times to speak with someone above or other than the General Manager and was told there was no one else above him that could help me. I was informed that the Customer Service could not force this hotel to give me back my money and the only thing he could do was take it to the same manager I had already spoke to and see if he would be willing to refund the entire amount. Of course this request was again denied as I was told it was this was not the hotels fault they only cancelled 1 of my 5 reservations!!! After numerous phone calls and emails, I have been bounced back and forth through 3 hotels, Customer Service Reps, a General Manager who all have been less than helpful and condescending with this situation. This issue is not resolved and I will not stop my efforts until I have been given a full refund of the money owed to me, considering my card was charged over $740.00 and I never even stayed there and cancelled over a week in advance!!! This is unacceptable for a Hotel of your status.

The staff here was great! Very close to the airport, the free shuttle was great and they came in about 2 minutes to get me. My room was quiet although the view out the window was kind of dull, my room was on the back side of the hotel.
Again, a pleasant place to stay while on a business trip, the room was clean and it was quiet and good for sleeping. Will stay here again.
