My daughter and I stayed overnight this past weekend at the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown in Fort Wayne, IN. We found it easily, parking was next door, the entire hotel was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and it has a Starbucks and a Champions Sports Bar onsite which were very convenient. I don't have anything negative to say about the hotel at all! Price was comparable to other Marriott's. We sat out in the courtyard the evening we were there and just enjoyed the outside also. We'd stay again!

We stayed here for a family wedding. Our room was clean and comfortable. Most notable was the staff. They were friendly and helpful throughout the entire weekend.

Our first experience with the Courtyard Downtown Fort Wayne was less than positive. We stayed there in November of last year for a brief overnight stay and if you see my previous review, you will see we had a multitude of issues. I have to give kudos to Dale and the management there though as they have handled every concern I have had with their property and been very proactive and welcoming us back. We have had return stays in both January and April. Both stays were comfortable and well managed. The odor in the rooms has been discovered to be a problem with ventilation of the mini-fridge units, so if you book with the hotel, just ask them to unplug the mini fridge for you and the smell will dissipate in no time. The plumbing seems to be working much better and the rooms are always professional, clean, and well kept. The staff at the front desk is stellar and deserving of a much higher flag than Courtyard. As before, the hotel is very well located to the downtown restaurants and entertainment. The $7 parking for us is not a problem as we enjoy having a safe place to park the car with in/out privileges. We will be back again soon, as the convenience and well kept nature of the property is highly suitable to our needs.

I have stayed at this Courtyard on a number of occasions and it has become one of my favorite Marriott properties. The staff are always extremely helpful and courteous, the parking in the adjacent garage is excellent, the rooms are clean and updated, and the location in the middle of the city is very convenient. In the summer the location next to the local minor league baseball make for a fun atmosphere and convenient if you are interested in going to a game. the meeting rooms are modern and well planned. I like the Starbucks in the lobby for a quick cup of coffee in the morning, but the restaurant is a little lacking in selection and service.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the baseball stadium - you can watch the game but it is far enough away n...

Ft Wayne is a hidden gem and this Courtyard is really awesome. It's beautiful, modern, and within walking distance of several restaurants. The rooms smelled clean and fresh, were very comfortable and have a mini-fridge, and microwave, as well as large flat screen. You can open the windows for fresh air, and some rooms have views of the Single A ball park which is behind the hotel (this team is a big deal in Ft Wayne). The staff was wonderful, really wonderful, from check in to check out. The courtyard has comfortable seating and firepits, it is a great place to sit and have a drink with friends or just enjoy the evening. I would recommend this hotel even if you have no reason to be in Ft Wayne. It's the best Marriott I've encountered, and you can tell a lot of thought went into making sure that guests have a very good experience.

Garage parking is limited in the during a ballgame, it's a little frustrating because you pay for parking. Also it is very loud at night, especially if there is a ballgame. If you are light sleeper or need quiet for whatever reason, this may not be the hotel for you.

Room Tip: As for a high room facing the ball park (if you are interested in baseball). During the summer mont...

Stay at the Marriot for an event at the Embassy theater. Everything was there as promised, no disapointments. The room was new condition, nice flat screen, coffee maker, blow dryer.
The Champs sports bar was in the same building, which was good for a quick meal and drinks. Starbucks was there for the complimentary made to order breakfast, for a pleasant surprise. There was also an express checkout. The embassy theater was also contained in the same building. The only cons I can think of are; the wifi code had to be re-entered as you move about the hotel. Was surprised by the pay parking garage.

Room Tip: Higher floors may have a view of the Tincaps ball diamond.

Stayed here for one night and found the reception staff very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself was very clean, easy to get to, and well priced. Covered parking was $7 a day, while the hotel has a very nice little patio area out back, complete with a small fireplace and several spots to sit and relax after a long day. My room was clean, included fridge and microwave, and the bed was just right. The bathroom had a great glass shower, but no tub for those who are into having a bath. With no breakast included, a small bistro is on sight serving Starbucks coffee and making excellent breakfast sandwiches - service was fast and friendly.

The location of this hotel has something to be desired if you're looking for something other than a ballgame or show at the nearby Embassy Theatre. I walked for 30 minutes around the hotel and found nothing but churches, a library, Rallys, Wendys and alot of concrete. Thankfully the on sight sports bar had good, reasonably priced food, with very friendly staff. The apple cobbler was awesome !! (We ate there for both lunch and dinner).

When leaving the parking garage we found ouselves being assisted by some guy who was standing there taking our room cards for us, apparently to help expedite the process which apparently is sometimes cumbersome. Concerned about what data might be on our magnetic strips, we're FAIRLY certain he deposited the keys in the box there. My coworker and I would have been far more comfortable, if this helpful individual had wore some form of ID or uniform which indicated he had anything to do with the parking garage or hotel.

Overall, I would recommend this hotel for it's great service, and clean, reasonably priced rooms.

Thank you for your review. The apple cobbler is also my favorite. Your comments regarding the hotel are very appreciated. I assure you the folks at the garage were in fact employees of the city (unfortunately we do not own the garage) but I will address your concern over uniform and identification. They are only present when there are very high demands in the downtown area for parking in order to expedite exit from the garage. Thanks again and we look forward to serving you again in the very near future.
