“A pleasant and comfortable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

My wife and I stayed at this Marriott on a Friday in February while in Baltimore on business. We have stayed in the Hunt Valley area before because of its easy access to Baltimore and abundance of dining and shopping opportunities. We have previously stayed at the "older" Marriott here which I reviewed last year as being somewhat tired and in need of an update. This was not the case with the Courtyard. It is a very modern and up to date property and we enjoyed our brief stay. We were welcomed by a friendly and efficient front desk> Our room was spacious and clean. The bed was excellent with a superb mattress. The sofa in the room left a little to be desired as it was older and not very comfortable. The new flat screen television was excellent . The listing of channels card was great as it listed both by number of channel and on the opposite side alphabetically. I had not seen this before and it was a nice small touch. The room was quiet - with one exception. A Bates College mens athletic team was also staying there and a few of the "boys" came in late and made considerable noise in the hall near our room. This was nothing the staff could have prevented and they soon quieted down, but---.
We had an excellent buffet breakfast the next morning in a pleasant sun-filled dining area staffed by very friendly folks. The breakfast was included in our room rate- something I was told would not be the case when I made my phone reservation through a central Marriott reservation service- so we were pleasantly surprised when the front desk clerk indicated breakfast was included. It was a good breakfast with fresh eggs and potatoes, bacon, sausage. There was fresh oatmeal and other cereals as well as our choice of juice.
Checkout was smooth and efficient.
An overall pleasant experience. We would certainly stay again. I thought their "Market" area in the lobby was excellent even though we did not purchase anything there. It was well stocked with a wide variety of items at fair prices.
Oh, I forgot, the bath and toilet were in a separate room from the sink- which we always appreciate; but this separate area had no exhaust fan- which we found odd- but not an issue.
There is a large shopping plaza almost within walking distance with a movie theater and many casual to upscale dining options. We ate at a California Pizza Kitchen and the food and service were excellent. My wife enjoyed shopping at the nearby Talbots Outlet and a Chicos in the Plaza while I bought a few items at a Joseph Banks.
There is a light rail service close by to Baltimore, although we have not used it- but it makes visiting Baltimore even more convenient.

Room Tip: We enjoyed our ground floor room with a nice patio outside our sliding glass door.

Dear booster1959, thank you for your valued response. We like being close to all the action, yet tucked away for that good night's rest. As you mentioned , sometimes we do have room packages that include breakfast included and those located on a seperate tab on our website, but worth a quick question when speaking with our reservationists also. Our team appreciates your comments and stay with us. We hope to see you again and please introduce yourself next time you are in Hunt Valley, MD.

Happy Spring,
General Manager

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

They say you get what you paid for and this was certainly true of this hotel. Reasonable priced compared to surrounding hotels but did not live up to the Marriott's standards. Hotel was old, dull looking and in dire need of updates. The elevator on one side did not work so had to change room to the other side. They do have a pool and spa but did not look inviting to get in...was in poor condition. The front desk people were very courteous and provided very good service. Hotel is in good location, close to shopping center and restaurants. Would recommend for cheap one night stays but not for lengthy stays.

Room Tip: Rooms on the southside window views overlook the parking lot and offer more privacy versus rooms on...

I stayed here for a week, and it was a rather pleasant stay. The staff is friendly and the rooms are fairly nice quality. The one thing that they need to significantly improve is the breakfast. With as much as they charge for the food, it is really lacking in quality and taste!

This is hands down a great hotel to stay at and to get some work done. The staff is excellent, the facility is clean and close to transportation and local shopping including local restaurants like The Green Turtle. For work purposes its a dream - quite hallways and rooms so you can get things done without being disturbed.

I was at this hotel back in August for a Eastern-Light getaway weekend trip. This was a nice hotel and the rooms were very clean.
Housekeeping and the rest of the staff was very professional. Doing the time of my stay, there were several groups staying,and we did not get in each other way.

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights because I was attending a conference at the Marriot "right across the street." I was assured when I booked that this place was easy walking distance from the sold-out conference hotel. It IS right across a very, very busy 8 lane highway, and there is only one crosswalk up the street, but it takes forever for the light to change, and there are no sidewalks. Not pedestrian friendly at all. I felt trapped the whole time as I had no rental car, and I had to rely on the shuttle from the other Marriot to bring me where I needed to go, including to get dinner every night. That was a huge pain.

Everyone who worked here was very friendly and courteous. The room was OK, very average, and the pillows were are strange shape and lumpy. Good hot water and water pressure, and a nice, big TV were nice. The customer service was the best part of the stay.
