I am a Marriott fan, plain and simple. I'm only Silver status because my business travel is way down. My wife is Platinum, which I only mention in order to emphasize the brand loyalty overall.
This hotel is near the entrance to MCO, and is surrounded by other hotels and restaurants. Convenient for business. Typical Courtyard furnishing and services, and the employees were above average friendly. Food service was very good for both late supper and breakfast (though with three employees on duty in the restaurant at breakfast, not sure why the hotel GM was scurrying around bussing dishes when the other three weren't exactly overworked).
My only real beef was that with a telephone line problem. I couldn't call the hotel from the airport to ask that the van come over (though they did reimburse the $12 cab fare when I checked in when I suggested that they reimburse me), couldn't access the hotel from the exterior with a room key (not necessarily such a bad thing), and couldn't print my airline boarding pass the next morning on the lobby computer (again, not that big a deal, but I didn't connect the dots quite that quickly, and spent way too long trying to check in - a sign above the computer indicating phone lines were down wouldn't have been so hard to accomplish).
Also, while the room was fine, this was my second Marriott stay in a row where the bed and/or mattress were flat-out worn out. It's just like rental car companies keeping their fleet vehicles too long. Come on, Mr. Marriott, spring for some new beds for your bread and butter customers.
