“Great all around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Friendly staff, ok fitness center, rooms are great. Can walk to some places to eat. The cafe staff were a little incompetent. Did not seem to care about customers, but not that big of a deal relative to the rest of the stay.

Stayed December 2012

We always stay here and get a room facing Polk street. Yes, it's noisy but you get a great view of the riots in front of Tatum's. Last time were were there, 25 cop cars were called and 45 arrests made. Better than HBO.

The rooms are comfortable, clean, and well-decorated. The gym is surprisingly nice. Parking and check-in is weird.

Room Tip: Get a non-Polk room if quiet matters to you.

Good remodelled courtyard with easy parking next door.
Staff were helpful when I had a small room issue.
Rooms were bright and very clean....the suite we had was very spacious.
Was expecting more road noise but downtown was very quiet even in the morning.
Did not explore the area too much as just passing through.....the local few blocks seemed to be pretty sparse for eating options.
Price, location & facilities.....can't go too far wrong with this choice.

Room Tip: If you need a bath tub rather than shower only.....make sure you clarify this before booking some of...

I stayed here on business at the beginning of the month. The building is a renovation of an old business and was done quite well. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The Bistro serves a great breakfast. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

I appreciate corporations who save historic buildings. This is a particularly good renovation/restoration. The rooms were well furnished and comfortable. We had good service upon check-in and at the bar. Breakfast was a bit slow because of several large parties staying in the hotel. We were here late on a Saturday when downtown was deserted and quiet while on a Route 66 vacation, but still found several restaurants open within walking distance.

However, we found that the glasses in our room had not been cleaned even though they had been wrapped in the sanitized labeled plastic (not sealed). After several sips of my beverage I noticed what appeared to be a film in the bottom of my glass. I ran my finger through it and it was some kind of scum which really grossed me out. Thus a lower rating than this hotel probably deserves.

This is my second visit to Amarillo in a year. This time I stayed in Courtyard in Downtown. A great choice. Very convenient location (~20 minutes from airport). Room is good-sized, new, and clean. Like the mattress, firm and supportive. The morning I was to check out, I needed to catch a very early flight. The breakfast area did not open until 6:00AM but I need to leave hotel by 5:45AM. A guy named Luis was working to open the breakfast. When he saw me, he just asked What can I do for you? Then he brewed me a nice cup of Startbucks and said, "The register has not open yet. So this coffee is on us. Hope you have a good morning. Talking about customer service? This guy gave me a lifelong lesson about this topic (with a bonus of free coffee!).
