Upon arrival, the line for valet was so long it went into the street. This seemed to go on all day and night as they were very short staffed. The front desk was so brisk with check-in it bordered on rude. I don't expect the desk clerk to roll out the red carpet for me, but a simple "Hello and welcome to the Courtyard Marriott" and "Thank you" would have been nice. He didn't even direct us to our rooms. Good thing I have half a brain and can figure out where the elevators are.
The room was in a great location as I LOVE corner rooms but the convention of cheerleaders was not. I booked this hotel with the intention of using the hot tub. To my dismay, it was broken. I called the front desk and reported it and was greeted once again by "Mr. Smiley". Sigh. He informed me the repairman would be there in an hour. I didn't get a chance to check.
All in all... just okay. Not the best, not the worst.
