“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

Very nice and clean rooms, comfortable beds.
It is close to everything in Seattle.
Staff was very helpful and friendly.
The lobby was very appealing clean.
One thing I did not like is they charge for parking each day.

Decent room with a comfortable bed. The only negative would be the bathroom which was very small and outdated. Location was ok. Space Needle nearby as well as a few nice eating establishments (including a sports bar). Probably wouldn't stay here again.

Nice Marriott in Seattle with the normal amenities that you find at courtyard. Starbucks on the 2nd floor that also sells lunch/dinner was good. Close to everything but a little too cold and dreary to spend too much time outside walking.

Stayed there with my wife for a week. great location at a good price, clean rooms and convenient parking. Issues we had were dealt with promptly yet not entirely to our satisfaction which was acknowledged by the very professional and courteous staff. Would consider staying there again when in town, and certainly during summer

My husband and I stayed at the Courtyard the weekend of his Work Christmas Party. We were greeted promptly by the hotel staff and our room was nice and cozy. We ordered room service on Saturday night and was pleasantly surprised at how great our food was and how prompt the service. The only issue I have is with the parking fee for the night. $22 a night to park in a garage that had hardly any spaces available and really cost me $27 with taxes added. Ridiculous!

Room Tip: Make sure to ask for the water view. The city view all you see is an apartment building.

Green Features: they seem to reduce water usage by asking you to keep your towels for two days. They also don't change your sheets for your entire stay.

We went there for a getaway with our grown up children. I must say the whole set up is so good for people wanting to have a get-away and still have a little space of their own. It helps that they provide a good breakfast and complimentary coffee and tea. I will look for Marriott hotels like this whenever I travel in the United States with family and friends.

Room Tip: We went during Christmas break and the not very large swimming pool was full of children so we never...

This hotel is in a great location for New Years. It's also located across the street from several restaurants on West Lake Union. The rooms are on the small side but clean and are equipped with a small refrigerator. Hotel has underground parking and located on the north edge of downtown Seattle.
