“Multiple stays at this Courtyard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

My biggest complaint about this Courtyard is their parking lot is difficult to park in unless you never go anywhere and were lucky enough to find a parking spot where you can park a compact car without having to park in the dark recesses back by the dumpsters.

The rooms are okay, not as good as most Courtyards. This one should be due for an upgrade soon on their carpets and bedding, etc. But it's clean and not shabby. The beds are not uncomfortable. The rooms are mostly quiet from road noise / outdoor noise, but hall noise is another story. If you stay there, never walk down the hallway telling a personal story you want kept private, because everyone will hear it all.

For me, the convenience outweighs these negatives. Well, everything except the parking. There is almost no handicapped parking, and for someone who requires it, it's more than a minor inconvenience.

All in all, this is not a bad hotel, it's just not the best of Courtyard. Some friends who have been in town at the same time as me have said their rooms were worse, none have said theirs were better. It's significantly less expensive than others.

I might stay here when I return next time. I might not, it really does depend on where friends are staying. If there were a better choice as convenient, I probably would choose it, but it's also not so bad that I wouldn't stay there - and I've been to more hotels with traveling for business than I can count and stayed at some lovely and some awful hotels.

The staff adds nothing negative or positive to the review. There was no particular welcome to the Courtyard. You get your key, and that's about it. There's rarely someone at the desk, actually. They are never unfriendly, but in comparison to some of the more receptive hotels I've stayed, they seem to be bored to have guests arrive. This doesn't really bother me, however, in comparison to some lovely Courtyards with a more welcoming attitude, it is lacking.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side of the hotel (as in the back parking lot) are quieter.

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.
