“Very Sad Example of a Courtyard by Marriott”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I travel all over North America and use the Marriott branded hotels (including Courtyard) 100% of the time. Now granted, not every Marriott branded hotel is perfect, but this location in Parsippany, NJ is BY FAR the absolute worst I have every stayed at. This hotel needed to be completely renovated about 10 years ago. The rooms, hallways, and common areas are beyond old…….frankly, it is dumpy. Honestly, I am shocked that Marriott puts their name (brand) on this “establishment”. They should be ashamed, especially for the money they charge for this hotel. What else can I say……….for this rate per night, go ANYWHERE else in the area.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

I stayed here for 4 nights for business.
Good - the staff from front desk to restaurant is great with big smiles, professional & helpful.
The indoor swimming pool looks decent & nice.
Gym is very comprehensive & well maintained.

Bad - restaurant is strictly for breakfast only. No lunch or dinner. There is a nearby TGIF, but no other convenient shops, restaurants or entertainment nearby the proximity unless you drive.
No other cafe or restaurant within hotel.

Conclusion: whilst the room was fine, decently large, clean, the hotel is relatively small, & you could not just stay in hotel as there are no other ammenties or entertainment for relaxation. The closest is to a 15 mins ride to malls, but taxis was very expensive. Overall good for very short stay only.

What's with courtyard by Marriott? They need an overhaul. The hallways smell like "love my carpet" powder and the carpets are hideous. An attempt at updating has been done on the rooms. The bed linens and curtains are updated. The carpet not so much. The bathrooms are old but clean. The sink in my room had rust. It's a clean hotel but I prefer newer more updated hotels. My office put me up here for 3 nights so I didn't have a choice. This is my second Marriott stay that wasn't great

I stayed here for business. The room was fine - very standard Courtyard fare - and there was free internet. The problem is that I left my computer engaged while I slept and my hotmail account was subjected to hackers. Fortunately no problem other than sending out annoying spam to everyone in my contacts. Next time, I will turn off my computer while I am sleeping.

The hotel is very clean and offers good amenities. The room is spotless and has a couch and a desk to work at. The beds are very comfortable and clean. The hotel has a Friday's right next door that delivers which is a great convenience. The hotel has a business center, a restaurant, pool, laundry and other amenities that makes your stay very comfortable. You can't go wrong with staying here.

We stayed here two nights for my son's wedding. The rooms were spacious and the beds and pillows very comfortable, however, the walls are paper thin. I heard another couple complain that the drinking glasses in the rooms were not clean and had lipstick stains on them! Stay away from the breakfast buffet. It is way overpriced. There are diners all around . . . a better choice for food.

Stayed here for a wedding party. Maybe they were overwhelmed at check in, but after finally checking in they got it right. Just an FYI... They will preauthorize extra money for incidentals... So be aware.... The rooms were nice. We had 2 queen beds. The furniture , although it looked nice, had lots of scratches and nicks out of the wood. Overall a good experience, but I think I may try the other Mariott down the road next time I am here.
