We stayed here in July 2012 and considered it an excellent value then. Our opinion now is the same, but there have been improvements to the property.
Late in 2012, they renovated the entire lobby area. What used to be a breakfast-only buffet has been replaced with a "bistro". You can now get breakfast, light lunch and light dinner. For the most part, everything is pre-made and reheated, though you can get eggs made to order in the morning.
They have Starbucks coffee, though the selection is limited and it is not made on the premises. You can order from a small but nice list of wines by the glass, beer, and a small selection of mixed cocktails. The 6-ounce pour of wine seems to be much more generous than that!
I had a turkey Ruben for dinner one evening and is was quite tasty and impossible to tell whether it was pre-made or made fresh on the spot.
The bistro operates from 5:30 am to 2 pm, then runs again from 5 pm to 9:45 pm.
I do not know about using this property if you are using it as a vacation hub, though I suppose that depends on your itinerary, but if you are a business traveler, the setup is ideal.
We were her for appointments at the Cleveland Clinic just a mile or so away. This Courtyard has a special rate for folks going to the Clinic. You get the room and full breakfast for 2 for $139 at this writing. And staff works hard to accommodate special needs for Clinic guests: late checkouts, sudden changes in stay requirements (check out early, stay longer than inticipated, etc.) are graciously accommodated.
The room was typical of higher quality hotels, nothing really extraordinary, but the friendliness of the staff and the willingness to assist made the stay quite enjoyable.
Whenever we are back in Weston, the Courtyard will be our hotel of choice.
