“Much improved hotel”
Reviewed April 10, 2008

We stayed Friday night in order to go to Santa Anita races the next day. The remodel is a big improvement for this hotel. Check-in was swift and friendly. King room had a very comfortable bed. Sliding door/window cannot be opened. HVAC controls were confusing. When the A/C shut off there was a strange odor in the room, sort of like drying paint. It did not give me a headache however. The TV was a flat-screen LG, very nice! The common areas were very clean and well maintained. I used the cross-country machine in the fitness room. There were iced towels and water and a bowl of fruit in the fitness room, nice touch. The swimming pool is very small, not for doing laps. There was some slamming-door noise from the hallway outside the room. Other than that the room was quiet. I would look forward to returning here.

This is a typical by the book Courtyard by Marriott hotel.
That is of course a good thing! What this means is:

1- Clean and comfortable rooms.
2- Great LCD TV
3- Great work desk
4- Nice shower and a massaging shower head that actually works
5- Nice staff who will take care of you

I stayed here two nights and it was indeed a pleasant stay. The two front desk staff I encountered were both very corteous and polite.
Room has a mini size fridge that is empty and you can use for your own drinks/food! The hotel looks to have been renovated in the recent past. Bathroom was extremely clean and dare I say actually inviting!

Also the hotel is very close to a few dozen restaurants and whitin minutes of Westfield Mall in Arcadia that has another dozen or so classy eateries.

The shell station across the street sells a 44 oz cup of soda for only a $1.59 so be sure to check that out if you need soda or water. There is a "Market" in the lobby as well which sells bottled beverages, water, ice cream and other goodies with prices that are quiet fair considering the conveinience.

I stayed at this place overnight for a little rest and recreation from the hustle and bustle of the prior week. It was a relaxing and enjoyable stay. The hotel is practically brand new as it has just undergone a major renovation and refurbishing. Even as you walk in the lobby there is that familiar brand new scent. The lobby was clean but simple. The check-in staff were all smiles, friendly and knowledgeable. My room was typical of the Marriott properties, very clean and modern. Although I was only on the second floor and fronting Huntington Drive, I found that the noise from the street is very much tolerable as I suspect the hum from the airconditioning equipment is masking the sounds coming form the freeway and street. I like the flat screen TV and mini-fridge but it would have been nice to also have a microwave oven, so then I wouldn't have any reason to ever get out of the room. I definitely recommend this hotel to everyone for both work and play. The staff (front desk to housekeeping) needs to be commended for a job well done.

  • Liked — The hotel is newly renovated. All bedding is still new and fresh
  • Disliked — There is nothing that dislike about this hotel. Keep up the good work and we'll keep on coming to stay.
