“Perfect location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott for 2 nights. The location of this hotel is ideal for exploring downtown, walking distance to all shops, George St and Jelly Bean Row! The hospitality, helpfulness and friendliness of the hotel staff was a joy (Especially Teri at the front desk).The room was spotless, WiFi worked very well.
Bedding comfort is totally subjective. Some people like hard beds and other like soft. Our bed was very hard and I think it was a bit aged as well, thus the very good rate instead of excellent. The other cause for me to not give an excellent was Smitty's . We only ate breakfast there but we were not impressed with the egg dishes or food in general. Played it safe, day 2 with eggs benedict so that I could see the yolk and egg white. Fresh fruit cup, however, was excellent.

Parking is in lot across the street, can be tight if you get in late, but as another review mentioned, valet available.

We ate at the Celtic Hearth and The Pi...both excellent food and within walking distance !

Be sure to go to Cape Spear where you can watch the humpback whales from shore..what a show! Signal Hill is a must as well.

Room Tip: Harbour views are great, ask for a higher floor for the best views

Checked in here for a nine day business stay and continue to be impressed by the customer service each day. Parking lot full? They valet park the car. Light fixture out? Fixed immediately. Need a recommendation for a local shop to change a watch battery? Got it almost instantly. Lovely people intent on making my stay as comfortable as possible. Accommodations fine, not luxe but more than enough for our needs. Great office chair at the desk. WiFi fast and seamless and free. Fitness room small but effective. Laundry facilities for guests. Will definitely stay here again.

My parents and I stayed twice at the beginning and end of our trip to Newfoundland. The rooms are quiet and the decoration is standard. The staff at the front desk was very nice. There were a few things that didn't work on each visit (TV, hair dryer) but it was all promptly fixed. The location is perfect, right by the harbour.

The Courtyard by Marriott in St. Johns, NL is typical of the Marriott great service but with the extra flair for hospitality and warmth that Newfoundlanders are known for. Nothing was too much trouble for the front desk staff. They made me a hair appointment, organized a taxi, suggested local restaurants, cancelled the hair appointment (when my schedule changed) and then made a new one. All with a smile and a willingness to serve which was excellent. The room is lovely, overlooking the harbour and the bed very comfortable.

Room Tip: Spend the extra to get a harbour view - you will see lots of interesting action from the boats and t...

About 20 minutes away from the airport, but still a good location. Plenty of places to eat nearby and the waterfront is interesting to look at. If you're a Marriott fan, you know what you're getting, But what makes this Marriott stand out is the friendliness of the staff. Shari who checked us In and gave us advice about local attractions was especially helpful. I highly recommend this Hotel.

Hotels in St. John's seem overpriced and this one also fits the bill. However, the location on Duckworth Street is great. The area is not noisy and is a walking distance from the shops, restaurants and many hikes as well. Our room looked out over the docks, a bit industrial but very picturesque. The room was of a generous size and very clean. Free wifi was great. Parking is a little limited so grab a spot if you find it. The Smitty's restaurant in the hotel provided good value for breakfast. The staff were very accommodating and friendly.

We stayed at this hotel July 11 & 12/2013.......The manager and staff went out of their way to accomodate us.....freshly baked cookies await you at check-in....large clean rooms with exceptionally comfortable beds! Great location....easily accessable to major tourist attractions and Smitty's restaurant is right on site. Located next door to Portebello's. Harbour view from our room.....Guest laundry was available and the little extra's that traveller's might need (toothbrush, toothpaste, laundry detergent, bounce sheets) were freely offered by the staff!

Room Tip: we had a junior suite overlooking the harbour.....lots of room !!
