This will be a very basic review since this was a very basic Courtyard.
We had to change rooms twice. Do not stay on the first floor as the ceilings are so thin we could hear every footstep. We happened to apparently have extremely active occupants over us, so we had to change rooms if sleep was our goal. The air conditioner did not work in the second room.
The rooms were the smallest we have seen for a Marriott - even a Courtyard. So, you can imagine the bathroom and vanity area. Marriott is certainly getting their dollar per square foot for this hotel.
The staff was accommodating and very polite. The rooms were clean. There was no free coffee in the lobby, but you could purchase a $4.00 Starbucks in the lobby. There is also a pleasant looking cafe in the lobby that must be open at some point, but was not open when we checked in during the evening or checked out the next morning at 11 AM.
There are the usual nice perks such as a pool andinternet service. The lobby has nice seating if you wish to sit and use your computer, a computer station and a small "convenience store". The hotel is very close to the highway for easy access and, of course, the Duke campus. Again, I guess our biggest surprises were the very thin ceilings and small rooms.
