This was my second stay at the Courtyard and it was very pleasant. The hotel is within a couple of blocks of downtown and is very conveniently located to restaurants and on-the-square shopping. Parking in lots adjacent to the hotel is free. Check-in was quick but the young woman who did our check-in was new. I asked for a King, Non-Smoking and was told "the whole hotel is non-smoking". What she did not mention was that she put us into a room with two queen beds. We were running a little late to meet friends so I didn't go back down once we saw the room and ask if this was an error or if there were no king-bed rooms available, we just took the room. The bed was comfortable and we slept very well but light sleepers might be forewarned that there is a fire department nearby and the hospital is only 3-4 miles away, so sirens are sometimes frequent (I would ask for a room at the back of the hotel if this is troublesome for you). It took me a little while to get the room cool enough to sleep, but I was able to get the thermostat adjusted; in some hotels no matter what you do the room is stuffy, but this one was quite comfortable despite the high heat and humidity outside. Our room was very clean and comfortable and was a good size with a huge flat screen TV. Our room did not have a refrigerator. The hotel does have a nice indoor pool which we did not use but others were (it is visible from the elevators). The hot tub appeared to be drained. The hotel offers a breakfast buffet for $7.95 per person but we did not take advantage of it as we had to leave for a meeting. This hotel is about the best if one wants to park and walk to shops, restaurants and bars. Free chocolate chip cookies are offered at the front desk, water with lemon in the lobby in the afternoon and coffee in the morning; free USA Today and Wall Street Journal by the elevators. Although I have a membership card for this hotel chain, we got a very good rate through Priceline for this stay. Would definitely stay again.
