Very good location in downtown La Crosse with the west side overlooking the river. Updated decor and comfortable lobby and Bistro. Staff is great, very friendly and helpful. Room was clean and so is the property. Nice work out room, not huge but enough to burn some calories. Plenty of parking. Close enough to walk to shops and restaurants, even... More

I am a fan of the Courtyards for small market locations and business travel. Particularly the new styles with the expanded lobby areas. This hotel is a very nice hotel and has a great lobby area to meet with clients or others. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Because of a smaller shower area, I would suggest that you...

I stayed here for one night while attending a meeting at the convention center. I was pleased by the clean, modern appearance of the hotel. As a Marriott Rewards member, I received a friendly greeting, and all my preferences were already noted. I got a complimentary upgrade to a King room overlooking the River. Sweet!

We stay at Marriott properties all over the world. This courtyard is spacious, clean, and friendly. Pool area is large and welcoming. We spent some time relaxing in the hot tub. We had a room with 2 queen beds, and the room was particularly spacious. Very happy with this property!

This hotel is right in the Mississippi River and trust me, the view is priceless. I stayed for couple of nights here. A little expensive but worth it.

Stayed here on business recently. Great location right on the MS river. The rooms were updated, but you could still feel the years on them. The gym is rather small, but adequate (would be nice to have more weights!!) and the pool is a bonus. The real stars were the staff. Great front desk staff and an incredible housekeeping staff....

Almost directly under the "blue bridge" that crosses the Wisconsin channel of the Mississippi River. Get a river front room to enjoy the boating and sun lovers if you stay during the warm months.
