“The best in Hamilton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2009

We had a very nice one night stay at the Courtyard Hamilton. The staff was very nice and very understanding as we were upgraded to a better room (since we had problems at an other property the night before). The room was big and clean. The hotel is also fairly new and well kept. The staff was very helpfull and friendly. We will book it again if we have to go to Hamilton in the future!

A nice new Courtyard located up over the escarpment from downtown Hamilton. It must only be a few years old as everything is new and seems to reflect the room and hotel design of the newer Marriott properties.

It is clean and tidy, Our room was spacious. Staff was helpful and friendly, but then all we needed to do was check in and check out.

No complaints. Now if they only threw in a complementary breakfast it would be ideal!

We were very pleased with this hotel. Rooms are nice and large. Entire hotel was in good shape and clean. Free wi-fi is a nice plus. The lobby is attractive, parking is available and staff was helpful. Breakfast was adequate as well. Only issue we had was no cribs for our infant daughter. Out of the entire hotel they only had two cribs! Would have been a 5-star if not for that.

We were going to Hamilton for the first time to visit family. We got a great deal on Priceline.co for the Marriott Courtyard. Good location off the highway. Staff upon check-in very friendly and helpful.
Room was quaint and clean, LOVED the free internet in the room for my laptop. What a bonus.
The bathroom was large. Loved the "mini bar" with fridge. A microwave would have been even better. Coffee maker worked well but more than one coffee sample would have been nice for my fiance to also have coffee! My fiance as a surprise, had fruit and wine brought up for our arrival at the room - nice gesture that the hotel would do this but the fruit was soggy. They did reverse the fruit charge.
The bed was harder than I thought it would be - be prepared for this!
The indoor pool was freezing and we could not swim in it. The hot tub was barely lukewarm, to cold to stay in and relax.
Breakfast should be included, we did not pay for this.
The restaurants next door, Turtle Jacks and Keg were both disappointing (staff and cleanliness)
All in all, good value but I would not want to pay $140 a night here as it is advertised!

  • Liked — Free Internet in room

Just returned from a trip to Toronto and Hamilton. Hamilton is a great alternative to staying in Toronto. Much easier to navigate, and still close to great attractions like Niagara Falls and African Lion Safari. And Hamilton airport is awesome for those not accustomed to big airports.
The hotel is pretty new, and everything was clean and in good order. Beds were very comfortable. Only minor complaint with the room is that it would have been nice to have an extra easy chair or a small couch.
Hotel was nice and quiet--no noise to bother us at night. The courtyard was very pleasant. The pool is fairly small, but our family had it all to ourselves whenever we wanted it so that was not an issue.
A complimentary continental breakfast would have been nice--we hate buffets and that's what they push. No restaurant service other than breakfast.
Staff were all professional and courteous.
Overall, we had a very pleasant stay, and if ever in the area again would absolutely go back.

Hotel staff were very welcoming. Room was clean and had all amenities necessary for a short business trip. Internet connection fast and efficient, nice comfy bed. Breakfast was very good with a nice choice. Location is good to access major highways. Would recommend.

This hotel was brillient, although it does not advertise it on its website we picked this one because it had a shuttle bus to and from the airport and into down town Hamilton.

It was imperitive that I found a comforatable, quiet, friendly, safe, clean hotel as we had my granny with us who was going on to Ottawa the next day. Therefore we needed easy access around the hotel and reliable transport for her. Quite simply the hotel meat all of her needs.

Luckly she was not feeling hungry but if she had we would not have been able to provide her with a properly cooked nutricious meal. So me and my partner went to the bar next door to grab something whilst granny slept.

Granny was really impressed by this hotel and vowed that she would definatly want to come back. I would also use this hotel again as I was really impressed by the shuttle bus (which was a god send to us).

Bear in mind it is about a 10 min drive to the airport and 15 mins in to downtown Hamilton. For Transit passangers at the airport this is an ideal hotel for a comfy nights sleep even Granny would agree.

  • Liked — It does what it says on the tin!!
  • Disliked — No room service available
