“Comfortable & Convenient Forecastle Staycation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Second year choosing Courtyard as accommodations during the 3-day Forecastle Festival at Waterfront Park. Perfect location for being in-town tourists enjoying not only a weekend of amazing musical entertainment, but to also have opportunity to take advantage of the walkable proximity to local restaurants and bars before/after festivities. So many excellent choices! Room-darkening curtains and non-obtrusive housekeeping staff made sleeping in a much-appreciated luxury. Friendly, helpful and attentive staff.

The best compliment to us is a returning guest! Thank you for selecting us for a fun "stay-cation" weekend. We have a wonderful partnership with the Forecastle Festival and always enjoy the patrons the popular festival brings. See you next year!

I was in town for a business trip and stayed at this hotel downtown. The location is perfect. Across the street from the YUM Center and walking distance to a number of great restaurants and bars. The area felt safe walking back at night.

Rooms were comfortable. I had breakfast in the lobby - food was excellent and the service was fast and efficient. My only issues is that rooms are not insulated from the noise. You can hear the person in the room next door if they are talking loudly on their phone or taking a shower. Otherwise, a very nice place to stay.

Room Tip: Get a room on an upper floor for less noise

I've stayed here several times. It is always a good experience. The service is great and the rooms are comfortable. It's on the pricy side- but worth it. I have always found the staff accommodating and its close to restaurants.

I stayed here for a cards game in January and it was very close to the Yum! Center. Spending $160, I was expecting great things. It was just an average hotel that charges too much. Next time if I am going to spend that much at a hotel, I will stay at the Seelbach, 21c, the Brown, or the Galt House. Those hotel's are truly high-price worthy (and they are actually about the same price as this Courtyard). This place would be a good hotel at the $70-$90 range. The pool is full with 3 people in it. The workout facilities seem to be lacking as well. The location is good for the Yum! center and that is about it. Other, better hotels, are just a little longer of a walk. While I didn't have any issues with customer service, nothing stood out to me as being excellent about it. Save your money by staying somewhere else, or stay at a place that deserves $160 per night.

Thank you for the review of your stay with us back in January. We appreciate your input. We find that we are an excellent value in the downtown area because we offer complimentary airport shuttle, complimentary Wi-Fi and very inexpensive parking for downtown at $6/day. Couple these savings with our location and the ability to walk to so many venues, restaurants and bars, and you truly save money when staying with us.

We hope you will consider these savings when selecting a downtown Louisville hotel and choose to stay with us in the future!

They had a great attitude! We loved it! Thanks Marriott Associates we will be back!

All of your staff was very friendly but Jermaine Mason was awesome! He made us feel so welcome and was very helpful with everything we needed! The first night there a man helped us and he was nice but Jermaine stepped in to make it more inviting!

Thank you for staying with us for the big wedding weekend! We are in the perfect downtown location for wedding groups and are happy to host multiple wedding groups most weekends. These groups usually find our proximity to many restaurants and bars a huge perk to staying here. We are happy that you were pleased with your stay and we hope to have the opportunity to serve you again. You should stay with us again and enjoy some of the bourbon distilleries close to Louisville. Cheers!
