We were up in the Milwaukee area for a family event. My brother lives in the Brookfield area so we chose a reasonably priced hotel in the area. The Courtyard by Marriott was just that. The price was reasonable, and I like Marriott properties. The room was nice... Two queen beds and the typical furnishings. The bistro area was nice for a quick meal or bite to eat. The bistro and lobby areas were attractive and comfortable. We did have a couple of issues. The minor issue was that our wide-screen HD TV was set up with standard definition signal and "stretched" across the widescreen. That's a pet peeve of mine. Also the channel selection was weak... Many of our favorite cable channels were absent from the line-up.
The more serious concern was the one from which the title of my review was inspired. In the morning when we woke up (4 of us) and started showering and getting ready, when we noticed our feet were getting wet in the carpeted floor of the common sink area. After investigation we discovered that the bath/shower area had seemingly been through some patchwork repairs to the tile and grout. Apparently the water from our showers was seeping through the cracks and behind the tile, then under the tub to the opposite wall, then under the bathroom wall to the floor just outside where the sink area resided. (Wonder what the ceiling of the room below was like?) After a few towels on the floor and some changed socks, it was workable, but quite inconvenient.
I'm not suggesting you don't want to stay there... If the TV issues aren't a concern to you and you check your shower tile before you settle in for the night... You should be fine. I'm assuming, that after we alerted the front desk of the water leak concern, that they attempted to repair again. Let's hope this time they were able to fix it correctly.
