I booked this facility as we were traveling in many cities in China, and we decided to visit Suzhou to see all the gardens. When I looked it up on the Marriott website, I saw that the point redemption for a room was low, especially if you consider Suzhou is the 49th largest populated city in the world (Los Angeles is 65th in comparison). So I was a little nervous how nice it would be since it appeared to be such a good value. Well, we were pleasantly surprised as the staff was wonderful and the hotel room was excellent. I recently saw someone on business who didn't have as good of an experience, so I'm not sure how they could have had those issues, as we had just the opposite experience. The room service was great and housekeeping was very thorough and actually replaced the number of free bottled water we consumed each day. The reception spoke English well, and they were helpfull with all requests There are a lot of restaurants just a block or two away in front of the hotel, but the pizza we had at the hotel was actually quite good. I can't remember the name of the Peking duck restaurant but you walk out the front door to the left corner and go two block forward and the restaurant is on theleft, with an additional complex of great places including an "I Will" pastry shop that had lots of great bakery goods. Suzhou was a wonderful place to stay and visit all the gardens, museums, and water cities. It makes a lot more sense than dealing with the short day trips from Shanghai. Our room was very quiet, and we found it to be very roomy. I would definitely stay here again. I have found Marriott Courtyards to be very reliable. You pretty much know what to expect, unlike some of the hotels in their upper end hotels, and the same Courtyard in NYC would cost you 3 times this much and this place is more modern.
