My family and I had a bad experience in another hotel, I mean motel, in "Downtown" Sacramento and checked out of there early. My wife and I have always had great experiences with Marriott hotels, so we decided to try Courtyard by Marriott in Midtown Sacramento. It is still close to the main attactions (no more than 3 miles from any of them) and was on a better side of town. We decided to check out the hotel and the area before we booked a room and we were pleasantly suprised. The hotel is next to UC Davis, Sacramento Campus, amongst all the medical centers. It is so nice to look out the window and see medical professionals and business people as opposed to bums and meth heads. It is so close to the campus that the hotel is actually serviced by the campus police rather than Sacramento Police. Not knocking the Sacramento Police, just assuming the campus police are not as busy and overwhelmed as Sac PD.
My wife checked us in and the receptionist was extremely helpful and friendly. She told us about all the amenities they had, a pool, whirlpool, fitness center, lounge, restaurant, store, room service, complementary coffee and a large lobby with plenty of couches, chairs, books and newspapers. The staff was very accomodating the entire time. She told us they had floatation toys for our baby when we use the pool. They provided us with a portable crib and had it in our room when we arrived complete with bedding. My wife asked if the room had a refrigerator for our baby's milk and the receptionist told her if the room did not have one to call the front desk and they will have one delivered. My wife's favorite part is they provide ice cold lemon water and cucumber water in the lobby. All of this service and amenities cost only $10-30 more than our motel in the ghetto.
There is a restaurant on site called, Bistro Biago. This the where the room service food comes from. Often times on site restaurants increase the prices for convience sake, but the prices at this restaurant/room service are comparable or cheaper than any sit-down style place.
This Marriot, as well as every other Marriot, has several options for discounts. There are Government, State, Military, Law Enforcement, Senior, AAA and I think they have rewards card. If these types of discounts don't work for you ask them what else they have.
HOLY COW!!! It just keeps getting better!!!! My family and I traveled to Sacramento because my University was holding their commencement nearby. My wife told the front desk this and 2 hours after we got in our room a plate of cookies and a card was sent to our room via room service. The card was signed by numerous staff members congratulating me on my graduation. I can not believe Hotels.com gave this hotel 3 stars and our other motel in the ghetto 2 stars. Do not believe the rating system provided by Hotels.com.
