“Nice Place for a Wedding”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

Previously stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott on a trip to Hawaii and I was not particularly expecting too much. We stayed at this hotel as a freind had her wedding reception there. I was amazed at the size of the room, the attention to detail and the overall ambience. It was a long and eventful trip to get there so we enjoyed just relaxing once we arrived. As my wife was tired, she was able to have a good sleep whilst I enjoyed a quiet drink in the bar.

As the area is predominantly more business orientated it was not overly busy, being there on the weekend. Short 10min walk to the Macquarie Shopping Centre to help kill the time before the wedding. Recommended...

Room Tip: Courtyard side so not to risk traffic noise from Epping Road.

Usually I stay in this hotel when I travel to North Ryde for a business trip.. This is convenient for me as office is about 20 mins of good walk from the hotel, no need to do any extra exercise :) The hotel also provides complimentory shuttle service to and fro from office if needed, which is very nice. Orchard restaurant is good to speld some time having couple of drinks and dinner.. breakfast is okay... rooms are clean, not big though but enough for a single person.. overall had a godo experience staying in this hotel so far. The hotel also has a good taxi contact which offers good ride to and fro from Sydney airport.

The hotel is in a good location and mostly a business area. The room was good and the hotel staff was avaerage. However $ 28.00 for the breakfast buffet? What are they thinking? I stay at Courtyards all the time in the US and the most I've paid, until this place was $ 15.95. Most are between $ 9.95 and 12.95. To say the least it was McDonalds for me the next 3 mornings.

I stayed here with a mate and our two sons and it suited us fine. We had two rooms with plenty of room and the place had a real vibe and 5 star feel to it. The bar area was great and there were different groups coming and going which added to the atmosphere. The location could be a little awkward for some but this was not an issue for us. We went for a run in the nearby Lan Cove National Park and that was a highlight. Overall this is an excellent buisness hotel but for families seeking better value for money there might be other options.

I stayed at this hotel because of the brand name. I went to tour Sydney a bit at the end of November. All the hotels in the town were a bit expensive and the cheap ones didn't seem that friendly. This Marriott is about 25-30 minutes by train outside of Sydney, but it is only a 5 minute walk to the train station. It you plan on partying late in Sydney, this hotel may not be for you because of the distanace, but this review is about the hotel and not how far away from Sydney.

The check-in process was smooth. The room was a good size and it offered free Wi-Fi in the room. My room had desk and a small lounge chair in it. The air conditioning system worked great. You can set the temperature to the degree you want ..., not just a dial. The hotel seemed new and was very modern.

The room was very clean and had normal smell. Older hotels can have the musty smell, but this place didn't. The bed had 5 pillows. The room had a flat screen TV with about 15 channels. The room had a safe and fridge. Across the street was a McDonalds, KFC, Turkish, Thai and Malaysian restaurant. The hotel has a restaurant too, but they charge the normal, overpriced hotel charges. The restaurant and bar always seemed full of people, so the service or food must be great too.

The hotel is in North Ryde, Macquarie Park train station, but I didn't get a chance to explore the area. Unless you are very familiar with the bus system in central Sydney, don't take it to the hotel. I did and got lost. Always take the train. If you are coming to this city, this is a good hotel choice.

Just what you need for business if you are working in the area, not so good as a tourist hotel. Excellent comfortable rooms.

I big thankyou to the wonderful staff at courtyard.. We came to sydney for our son to compete in a 3 day chess event.We arrivied to the most helpfull reception staff (first impressions really do count) check in was easy, went up to our room which was on the 8th floor to find that everything i saw on their web site was the same when we opened our door, the room was cleaned well, the only issue was there were 3 of us and we only had 2 towels,told a staff member and 3 extra towels were bought up to us straight away,if i had to find something wrong with the place that was our only problem.We asked for 2 queen beds and thats what we got, our room would be fine for a family of 4,or like us a family of 3, the bathroom was a great size and the shower was massive and had a good showerhead, there was a fridge and it was stocked but we didnt use it, but it had a good selection of drinks and chocolates,everything was what you would expect in a hotel, Parking was easy. Location was convienient, resturant was nice, we had room service and our meal was great.We've stayed at alot of 5star places in parramatta and now i will only book marriott again,their customer service skills are the best that we have ever had and the people of ryde seem to be so friendly...There are 2 shopping centre's close by,easy to find.For what we paid we got the best that a hotel can offer and we were treated no different to the business guests and that is rare to come across.
Can't wait to come back to sydney because i know that we will have the best accommodation, Thanks again to everyone at Courtyard

Room Tip: book a top floor room, the view was well worth it!!!!!!!! be clear on what type of room you need eg...
