I stayed at the Fishkill Marriott because a wedding I was attending in the area had booked all the rooms reserved at the Hyatt, but I'm glad everything turned out the way it did.
Not only is the hotel located quite conveniently, it was clean, spacious, and with the perfect amenities for a short stay like ours. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Check-in was a breeze (which was especially helpful since we only had 20 mins to change), and the cheerful desk attendant accommodated us with an early check-in even though she was swamped with what appeared to be several different wedding groups (none of them ours, so bonus points to her). The room was larger than expected, with a nice little balcony, separate couch/sitting area, and desk. Also, the multitude of mirrors in the bathroom area really helped a group of people getting ready for an event all at the same time, as did having separate shower facilities from the sink, mirrors, etc.
The small store located at the entrance ended up being a lifesaver after coming back late from the wedding, since we had to wait an hour for a taxi and couldn't stop anywhere for food. -- What a great service! And the items were reasonably priced so we never experienced that feeling of being purposefully taken advantage of like at higher-cost hotel minibars.
Other than the convenience and expense, having an in-hotel restaurant with a surprisingly wide array of hot and cold breakfast options, Starbucks coffee, and large comfortable booths all equipped with TVs that were provided with personal remote controls (I'd imagine great for family's with small kids, business travelers, and exhausted wedding guests alike), was a HUGE plus. Not having to navigate an unknown area, cross a busy highway on foot, or drive around aimlessly looking for breakfast was such a treat, as was the 12pm checkout!
Overall, I was so surprised at the value of our stay compared to the cost! Other wedding guests at the Hyatt spent two to three times as much and were very jealous when they found out about our late night in-house snack run. I've never been to a Courtyard Marriott before, so I don't know if getting the manager Adam to help book our stay when I was comparison shopping in the area was the big difference, or if this location in particular just has great service, but I will definitely remember to book with them again in the future!
