“hospitality plus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

My husband and I had to stay in Orlando to convalese for 2 days and cannot say enough about the service we received at this hotel. The entire staff went out of their way to make us comfortable with the small things.....ice, extra towels, extra glasses, etc. The Bistro staff was especially a pleasure, so cheerful & accomodating. Roberto accomodated our unique diet requests without any hesitation. We felt very well cared for and made our experience way less painful! Thank you to all the staff that shows up at work everyday and takes care of us when we cannot be at home!!

Very nice, clean hotel; VERY friendly staff at all times. Needed a roll out bed for child, and was not charged. Was charged 15/day to park even though they have a huge outdoor parking lot. Was not made aware when booked this. Very nice ala'carte breakfast/lunch...warmed or heated? not sure if they are a made to order kitchen. But, tastey choices...pricey! Also, nice little Starbucks in the lobby that joins to this food bar. Heated outdoor pool and nice/large sitting area to read outside. Right beside a huge 7-Eleven if u need/forget anything. Only one issue was one queen bed was very sunken in middle (the 2 did not sleep well on it)...needed replaced. The other felt awesome! Loved the décor/color of rooms and entry/eating area...very nicely done!

Room Tip: we booked thru out Marriott rewards card.

I stayed here for 16 or 18 days for business and everyone at this Courtyard by Marriot were fabulous... If you are ever find yourself looking for a hotel in Downtown Orlando, the Courtyard by Marriot is your place. All the employees are helpful, cheerful and make you feel right at home. The rooms are spacious and the bed was comfortable. The location isn't the greatest if you are going to the Parks (Disney, ect....) but we ended up hitting International Drive a couple nights and the drive wasn't bad at all. (15 min drive) I Highly recommend this Hotel!

Comfortable hotel right of I-4. We have stayed here previously and will not hesitate to return again. We were warmly greeted, check-in was quick and easy. Our 6th floor room was quiet and comfortable. The balcony was large enough for 4 people to sit and talk.
Not a single complaint. It rained the day we were up and we got soaked. Since we did not pack extra stuff, we needed to do laundry. Soap and the machine use were complimentary. Wi-Fi was easy to setup. Fridge in the room, and bistro available downstairs.
All in all, we will be back. This is our go-to hotel when visiting our kids in downtown Orlando.

Room Tip: Pick a high floor, not facing the street

Overall, great hotel and common areas: pool, lobby, exercise room, etc.
Hotel appears to have been remodeled recently. The Bistro food was very nice and a quick and easy option. Location is off I4 but still quite with great access to I4.

Housekeeping is a bit slow, returned to my room after 6:00 pm and housekeeping was just starting so I returned to lobby and waited with a drink. I did ask at front desk if this was normal (good thing I did not have evening plans that night) and was told yes and something about laundry cycles. Front desk staff obviously need training. In any event, if you stay, ask about housekeeping time schedules.

Overall, a nice out of the way hotel that is quite and clean.

The negative is that the location is not that great. Kind of bland Florida at it's worse. The nearest restaurant is about a 25 minute walk away. I assume DT Orlando has some good spots, but that is a bit of a trek. It doesn't feel unsafe, but just not nice.

The rest of the operation is classic Marriott Courtyard. The gym is quite nice with free weights and quite a few machines. Much better than most. A heated outdoor pool that I used for some lap swims. Very nice.

The room was nice, but was a bit noisy. I slept with ear plugs the second nice and that was a lot better.

Front desk was great. Very friendly and efficient. The restaurant was also good.

If I had meetings in DT Orlando, I would definitely give this place a strong consideration.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor. It can be noisy down low

The front desk staff of Judy & Jorge were very helpful and accommodating. If you need to be near downtown Orlando this hotel is a very good recommendation. The whole facility has been updated and is very pleasant inside. They now charge a fee for parking but the good news is it is secure and very convenient.

Green Features: I would prefer real light bulbs! This hotel and all the Marriott's seem to think travelers do not read anymore
