“Quiet, remodeled Lobby, nice rooms”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

I stayed at this hotel for one night from Friday to Saturday. Other than the check in process being a little slow do to several people in line in front of me, everything was great. I couldn't hear the people in the room next to me which was good. I'll stay here again if I'm ever in the area.

Room Tip: I had a room with a balcony. It wasn't much of a view, but is nice.

Stumbled upon this hotel as I was driving through en route to take my college son to a medical appointment. For a hotel in this category, it's an excellent choice - so much so that I made a point to stay here on my return drive. The hotel was updated about 18 months ago, and it's in great shape. Contemporary lobby & room decor. The staff is fabulous....upbeat, smiling, helpful. They have a little dining counter for breakfast & light suppers, including a coffee bar & adult beverages. I enjoyed a perfect latte! Fitness room is small, as most are, and limited, but clean & filled the need.

I was in town for business and under the weather. The front desk staff was super nice and accommodating. Nicest hotel in town and I am a platinum member with Marriott.

The Courtyard Bloomington-Normal has been my family's stop on many visits to Illinois State University. During these stays we have received nothing but the highest quality of service and respect from the staff. Rooms are very spacious and open for many guests, as well as the shift manager always calls up to the room to assure the room is to your standards of excellence. With being only 3 floors, there's never been a wait for the elevator as well as the pool is near always open for anyone. Hotel management have been open to allowing guests to use the lobby cafe for group get-together's and have even offered great suggestions for where an affordable meal can be delivered from. Surrounding the hotel, being in a campus town, are 2 malls( 1 large, 1 boutiques), plenty of restaurant chocies, as well as a hearty selection of nightlife bars. only bit of a downside is as a Marriott property you are paying for the name, the Comfort Suites next door offers same quality with a free breakfast for near half the price ($80 vs $149)

Room Tip: Request a room on the parking lot side, as there is a more scenic view as opposed to the back side w...

just got back from special olympics bball tourney...have stayed in many hotels in the area the past 10 years...I rank it # 1 in comfort amenities and customer service..loved our balcony...loved the courtyard with the comfy chairs...caught some sun back there...all it needs is a gas firepit! rooms (we had two) were spotless, as is the entire hotel. the whirlpool and pool area spotless and the temps were just perfect. Staff was extemely nice and helpful....food was very good.
location is great...walk to walmart right through the parking lot!
Kudos to the staff at Marriott. Last year stayed at the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center which I then rated #1...which is awesome as well, but the balcony and the courtyard area at the Courtyard boosted it to my now #1 pick. Thank you staff for making our stay soooooo enjoyable.

This Courtyard is very consitent with others. Very clean, nice rooms and location is
ideal for business. The staff however, were exceptional. Very nice and consistently offered
assistance. The breakfast was ok and the fitness center a little small. Maybe add a stationary
bike for complete diversification. Other than that a great place!
