We had an event right on the waterfront so the location was superb. We also had a river view that was gorgeous! 4 stars due to the dated elevator and dark hallways plus the fact that the Courtyard Marriott's don'the have free breakfast. But staff were incredibly nice and we were comfortable!

The place is clean, and the front desk is nice enough, but if you go to Courtyards and wish to eat at the Bistro, this place is not great. They only have a fraction of the menu available here, and the staff at the Bistro when I was here was mostly absent. While I understand there are a lot of...

Dear Sararavotti, Thank you very much for providing your feedback. I am very sorry that you found our Bistro to be lacking in options and staff. Due to our smaller size, we do have a smaller Bistro menu. We do this so that we can implement the options that we do have well. We will be sure to bring your...

Super friendly staff. Nicely renovated, right on the river and the river walk where city park and river boat rides are. Everything downtown is easy walking distance (restaurants, theater, bars, stores).

We have stayed here a number of times. The location is great, the facility is very nice and the staff is always accommodating. It is an easy walk to downtown Lacrosse and the restaurants and bars. Rooms on the river side of the facility are worth the extra money. Each visit has been consistent...nice job!!

This is my fourth time staying at this hotel and I have never been disappointed. The staff is wonderful, from the check-in to the maids, and the bistro staff. This hotel also has a great indoor pool overlooking the Mississippi and a fire pit, outdoor seating area on the riverbank. It is within walking distance to many downtown restaurants and...

I would have given the room 5 stars, newly renovated, bed and pillows very comfortable, the whole room was very clean however......there was a cigarette smoke smell. We had to turn off the air conditioning, we figured out that is where the smell was coming from. We opened the window as far as we could, about 4 inches. This was...

When I find myself staying downtown La Crosse at my friends' home, and wanting coffee early morning or late night, this is my reliable place to find it. The only Starbucks downtown, and the only coffee shop with extended hours, it is located right inside the lobby. There have been multiple times they have saved my sanity.

We stayed at the courtyard while attending a week of classes at Viterbo University. The hotel has an excellent location on the banks of the Mississippi with a beautiful patio and comfortable seating area around the fire pit. It is beautiful at night and a great place to relax.

Check in was easy. The hotel layout was a little confusing and the pool was very small, but the lobby bar/restaurant was very nice-looking with excellent service. The bathroom was also a bit small and separated from the sink, but everything was very clean and comfortable. Definitely a good option, with a nice view and good shops/restaurants nearby. Would stay...
