In all of the Courtyard Marriott's that I've stayed in, this one ranks near the top in comfort, service, and style. Located near the interchange of Business 80 and CA-160, this hotel provides very easy access to downtown/mid-town and the eastern suburbs. It is a very short drive to the Arden Fair mall and associated restaurants.
This Courtyard is built in the new mold - modern lobby with large restaurant area plus bar. The rooms are stylish and well thought out for the modern business traveler - lots of plugs on the nightstands and desk allow you to keep your mobile phone/alarm clock near you at night while charging. Rooms have a flat screen television that seems to actually receive real HD channels. Bathroom is clean with a standard set of soaps/shampoos.
Breakfast is included with the room and it is far superior to most other hotel's breakfasts. A good selection of eggs, waffles, cereals, danishes, and yogurts. And the eggs are actually real - not those egg patties that you might in a Residence Inn or Springhill Suites. Service comes with a smile, and my coffee mug stays full. The bar area is typically hopping in the evening with lots of business travelers mingling and chatting.
The gym at this Courtyard seems slightly larger than usual and has your typical assortment of treadmills, bikes, and weights.
Concerns about the noise are valid - especially the train which passes less than a quarter of a mile away. The first thing I do when I enter a room is turn the HVAC fan to "On", which keeps the fan spinning continuously rather than cycle on and off. It creates enough white noise to drown out most sounds from outside the room and is easy to fall asleep to. On my last visit I noticed the ear plugs on the desk, which is an amenity I think management should rethink - it sends the message "Yes we know our hotel is noisy and it's your problem". The main sources of noise are the aforementioned train and the sound of slamming doors, which the hotel should investigate fixing with softer door retracters or different materials on the frame to stop the metal-on-metal sound. Personally, with the fan spinning I have never had a problem falling asleep, and I'm a fairly light sleeper.
