We are Marriott Elite members so everywhere we travel, we try to stay at Marriott properties. Several years ago, we used to stay at this Courtyard regularly because of its convenient location to the mall, shops, restaurants, and their fly and park packages. It has been a few years since we have stayed here now because of their not so cheap rates; but this time, we got a AAA promo price of $79/night for 2 queens including breakfast for 2, free internet, and free parking. At this rate we couldn't resist the great value compared to downtown Seattle hotels that charges an additional $30 to 40 for parking and an additional fee for wi fi.
We were put on the top floor to avoid noise from above guests with a room facing the inner courtyard so it was very quiet. Our room was 346 and it even had a nice little balcony with 2 chairs and a little table. The room was extremely clean, newly renovated with very comfortable 2 queen beds; plenty of pillows on each and duvet instead of the yucky wool blankets on some.
The lighting was superb in the room which made it very bright; there was a small fridge and coffee machine in the room which are very convenient. The washroom's bathtub is very clean especially the grout...no black or brown mould anywhere. We like this Courtyard property because the rooms have been newly renovated and it's so clean. There were 3 of us and the room is plenty big compared to some of the older properties in downtown Seattle that is only 250 sq feet.
There is also an indoor pool with an indoor hot tub which we have used in the past years but this time around, we didn't have time to check it out. Parking is also very convenient as it is self park around the back of the property. There is also a complimentary hotel shuttle bus that go to the airport and pick up on the hour every hour.
Air conditioning is also very quiet in the room and since we prefer it a bit cool, it was perfect. The carpet was clean and not stained anywhere and just all around a great property with great value this time around!
If you don't have a car, this Courtyard is also within walking distance to Southcenter mall; Burger King; Mizuki buffet; Cheesecake Factory; and many other restaurants along with shops like Ross; Pier 1; and Market Place.
Thank you Courtyard Southcenter for our fantastic stay and we will return!
