“in the heart of Austin”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

A quick weekend getaway to Austin with friends and stayed for the first time at the courtyard in Austin and found it to be really worth it.. The hotel is so close to 6th st. and to the many many different entertainment spots. I found it to be professionally run..

Room Tip: Do not go to austin during the bike rally!!!!

I stayed for 5 nights during SXSW and even though the hotel was completely booked and overrun with convention goers the service was still very good. Check-in was easy. I had items shipped to the hotel and they were available when I arrived. The hotel manager was actually on the lobby floor welcoming guests, helping with bags, etc. It was a nice touch.

The hotel is slightly better than a typical Courtyard. The property has been updated so it doesn't feel dated. The rooms are a bit smaller than I've experienced at other Courtyards. It would have been pretty cramped if I used the pull-out in the room. The hotel and my room were extremely clean throughout my stay.

If you're doing business in downtown Austin the location couldn't be better. You're plenty close to business services, the convention center, the mayhem of 6th street, great restaurants near the W, etc. It's a very walk-able location.

I've stayed at a few other hotels downtown and if your on a budget you probably can't do better than this Courtyard.

OMG! Loved loved loved it! A few friends and I came down for Memorial Day weekend and loved being SO close to 6th street (literally 2 blocks away-5 min walk) and downtown! We felt safe at the hotel and our room was super cute, quiet and comfy! Room was clean and staff was friendly. We stayed in a queen suite (one queen with a pullout) and it worked so well for the 3 of us! Whenever we plan a trip back to ATX, we're definitely staying here again! Would recommend to anyone! Parking was $23 a day, but hey, it's worth it knowing your car is safe and it's not too bad splitting it among friends! :)

Stayed at the Austin Downtown Courtyard by Marriott for the NISOD convention next door at the Austin Convention Center. Overall, I liked the hotel; the rooms were very nice & clean, and were updated. The business center was great, apart from the two gentlemen who seemed to be camped out on the computers the whole time I was there (one older man was loudly swearing at the computer) -- I guess I should have said something to the desk staff, but I didn't want to be a tattle tale. Who goes to Austin and stays all day on a computer?

The staff was excellent at customer service -- typical Texas hospitality that I have come to know and love! My biggest issue was the restaurant -- the prices were far too high (especially the breakfast buffet) and the staff seemed to push charging your meals to your room just a tad much. There's a great Mexican place, Micheladas, just two blocks down on 2nd & Trinity, and the Ironworks BBQ is within walking distance as well.

Should I find myself in Downtown Austin again, I would certainly consider this hotel again, although the Driskell is appealing for its historic aspect.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a higher floor away from the fire station on Trinity.

This is an average Courtyard Marriott; clean and comfortable. Unlike other reviewers, we did not have an issue with noise, despite being on the side of the building next to the fire station (the Residence Inn next door might have fewer issues). We also did not hear anything of partiers on the street. My only complaint with this hotel was the price. We used Marriott points and it recently changed to a "Category 6", which means it was 30,000 points for one night. Further, parking is an additional $23/night, which seems excessive for Austin, TX (perhaps Chicago or Dallas but not Austin). When we return to Austin, we'll likely stay slightly further afield to get free parking and a 15,000 point room, which other than the location, should be of similar quality.

Travel159549,
Thank you for staying with us while you were visiting Austin and thank you for taking time to post your review. All visitors to Austin will find higher catergory reward redemptions in all the brand hotels as the heart beat of Austin is just steps out the door. Amazing dining, entertainment and fun await. Like most of the top 15 cities in the USA, (Dallas is #10 and Austin is #11) parking will range form $25-$50 per night in Ausitn depending on the kind of service you desire. We do offer both garage and valet parking for $23 or $29.
Thanks again for visiting.

The room service is bad. The starbucks in the lobby is good and better spending money here than in the restaurant. The rooms are neat and clean and the stay minus the food was comfortable. The staff was also cordial and helpful. Being a Marriott I was hoping for more hence the disappointment. Its well located , being in downtown austin there are lots of things to do at walking distance.

bhakok,
Thank you for staying with us while you were in Austin. Here at the Courtyard by Marriott we do offer delivery from our Champions To-Go in room menu. I will share your comments with our culinary team so they can look for ways to bridge the gap between our Champions To-Go delivery and the In Room Dining experience of our Full Service Marriott, JW and Rensisance hotels.
