My husband and I stayed at this hotel while traveling to and from concerts at Merriweather Post Pavilion. We arrived early and had no problems checking in. Like with other hotels, we had put in requests ahead of time for a high floor and no-feather/down pillows. We were surprised when the young man at the front desk asked if we'd be okay with the first floor?! We reminded him we requested a high floor, so he found a room for us on the fourth floor. We needed to wait a few minutes so they could make sure the pillows were changed. We ordered and a had Starbucks in the lobby/cafe while we waited. The little booths with their own private TV's are a nice touch. Unfortunately the hotel was having problems with their microwave system while we were there, so the regular breakfast available at the cafe and things like complimentary coffee were unavailable. If this were not the case, we would have enjoyed our stay that much more. The staff in the hotel was, however, top notch. Everyone from maids, to servicemen to the front desk staff greeted us everytime! As far as the room, we recently stayed in a Courtyard in upstate New York. While the layout/decor of this Courtyard was similar it was a little disappointing. The bathroom had very dim lighting and the door would not remain open by itself. The vanity was outside of the bathroom, and while the inside of the bathroom was spacious, there was no where to put things like clothes, beauty supplies, etc. so you had to run in and out to get things you needed. There was a fridge, but no microwave and the fridge itself didn't seem to be operating 100%. The A/C in the room was on full blast, but the hallways always seemed to be that much cooler. The flat screen TV that pulls out is great. We also had a nice view of the courtyard. We were at the end of a hall, next to an electrical room and close to the elevator, but it was quiet. So, all in all a good trip. We should also mention food at the Stanford Grill (walking distance next door to the hotel) is delicious although a little pricey. This might not be rated the #1 Courtyard, but it's still a nice place to stay.
