“A solid stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

This Courtyard is on the riverfront and has been recently refurbished. Rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. Staff was friendly and the little side café/bar is nicer than many I've seen in similar hotels. The only drawback is it's pretty close to a plant and a traffic bridge going over the river, so it can be noisy for some but I didn't notice it much. Price was reasonable for that downtown area. Good restaurants in the area - several options within walking distance. Overall a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the riverside if possible and on the north end - away from the plant and bridge...

Dear Frances564,

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide us with the positive review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our property and Bistro so much. Excellent tip to get a riverside room, not only are they away from the concrete plant, they have an incredible view. Keep us in mind next time you're in town!

Happy Holidays,

We have come to like the newest version of the Courtyard chain by Marriott. This one was no exception. Friendly front desk staff, very helpful staff in the bistro (on side café/bar) - yes, you must pay for breakfast - but it is fast, convenient and reasonably priced.

Good place to stop on either personal or business travel. Clean big room on 3rd floor, riverside - ours had a king bed, desk, comfortable couch - perfect for business traveler or a couple. "Seniors" or AAA members get a good discount on the room price.

Location is just south of the Riverside Park area near the US14 bridge over the Mississippi - within walking distance of several good restaurants. It was raining the night of our visit so we just walked across the street to Piggys (see our review on Piggys - good place).

This hotel is located in downtown La Crosse right on the east bank of the Mississippi river. It's about 4 1/2 miles off I-90 if exiting at US 53 (exit 3 in Wisconsin). If arriving during "rush hour" it can be a slow drive in heavy traffic. Under those conditions we prefer exiting I-90 on the Minnesota side of the river (exit 276) to go south on US 14/61. This approach is about 4 miles farther if coming from the east - about 4 miles shorter arriving from the west. Take 14/61 south back across the river and follow signs/GPS etc. to hotel (left on 4th, left on King, left on Front can get you there from US14).

Room Tip: Third floor room overlooking river toward north side of building - quiet - nice view.

I stayed at this marriott for a conference. It was a typical Marriott and did not disappoint in that area (except that I really miss the breakfast that all marriott's have done away with).The location was great with easy access to the LaCrosse Center. My only complaint was the factory that is located right under the bridge. I think it is a glass manfacturer. I heard the grinding of machines all night long. I was at the south end of the hotel.Ask for a room at the north end. Plus my car was covered in dust when we left.

Room Tip: Rooms on the north end.

Dear Carol_1961,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our hotel on Trip Advisor. I'm pleased to see that your sere happy with the cleanliness and service of the hotel. I'm sorry to hear that our neighbors at the concrete plant were working so late and that you ended up experiencing sleep problems. They typically work during normal business hours only up until 6PM at night.

I will contact them directly and find out if schedules have changed or if this was an isolated incident. Thank you for letting us know so we can investigate.

We welcome you back to our hotel anytime.

Wonderful hotel with friendly staff, clean & well appointed rooms and beautiful view of the Mississippi River. It was however, rather pricey. Also it is in great proximity to a couple nice restaurants and a lovely walking path along the river.

We have been traveling through America for two weeks and have stayed at many Marriot Hotels and this is by far my faviourt. The rooms are perfect size with great desk space, beds are super comfortable, could not fault the cleanness of the room, staff are all friendly and helpful. We decided to extend our stay for another night as we love being able to sit out the front and look at the mississippi river while having a glass of wine. Couldn't recommend this hotel enough.

We stayed one night on our way home from our trip out west. I love this hotel. Beautiful, right on the river. We got in late and I asked for a room close to the lobby area, and we got a great room. Comfy bed, clean room. The bistro service was great and the coffee in the morning was awesome. We will be back!
