“Exceptional hotel and conference center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Hotel is connected by sky bridge to a huge conference center with lots of restaurants. Within walking distance to entertainment and hotel. Best hotel and conference center I have ever stayed in. Exceptional customer service too.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

We stayed here for one night to attend a concert at the YUM center.

Staff was very friendly and efficient, quick check-in.

There is a parking garage on the 2nd street side of the hotel, there is a place to pull in, get checked in and then park. Parking is only $6 per night, very reasonable.

Very convenient location for going to an event at the YUM center. There are multiple restaurants close by, within walking distance.

You are going to pay a more premium price due to it's location. Rooms were fine, clean, couch with sitting area. TV wasn't very good, many of the channels didn't work. We didn't complain since we were only in the room for a short time.

We weren't offered any kind of upgrade or perk (no free breakfast) for being Marriott Gold members, but I didn't ask for any either - again a short stay so I wasn't concerned with thos.

We would stay here again if attending an event downtown.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony room facing 2nd street.

Thank you for selecting the Courtyard Downtown Louisville for your stay after the concert. Being located across the street from the KFC Yum! Center lends for a fabulously fun night. The buzz & business of the streets during concerts makes it fun to people watch...especially from one of our rooms with a balcony! You can't beat $6 downtown parking. We hope we have the opportunity to host you soon.

Right across from the YUM Center and great places to eat. Hotel staff was very professional. I travel about 100-125 nights per year. when I'm in Louisville, I'll stay at this courtyard for sure. Totally impressed.

Room Tip: Ask for the room facing the YUM Center. Less noise.

Good hotel, room was good size clean and tidy, I have to say I like Courtyard rooms better than full marriot rooms, the lighting and furniture are much brighter. Bathroom has all the necessary ameanites and was very clean. Plenty of room in the public areas, nice pool and fitness room. Only downside is no access from the car park to the hotel. It's well located with plenty of food and drink places within a short wall. On the whole very good.

The hotel staff at the desk was very nice. I used the airport shuttle, and so did my husband (separately). The shuttle was fine both times, and the drivers are nice. Housekeeping didn't always remember to resupply our room with what we had used. The hotel staff or security did provide us with what we needed.
There are only 2 computers in the lobby, with 2 more by the elevators. One by the elevator didn't seem to work at all. The other one by the elevator apparently only could be used to print boarding passes. The other 2 computers were very popular, so there was always a wait to use them in the evenings.
The room has a comfortable sitting area.
The hotel's bar was convenient, with no lines and no waiting because no one was in there. The hotel was within walking distance of plenty of restaurants, and the convention center. I'd stay there again.

I thought the price was high for the quality, and they charged my card with $600 of other people's bills. I wasn't planning on staying there again before I found the charges on my account. There are a lot nicer hotels in the Louisville area.

We sincerely apologize for the billing issue. If you were not able to clear it up, I will personally look into it and resolve the issue. I am sorry to hear of your poor experience. The Courtyard Downtown Louisville has been 100% renovated to the new Courtyard Refreshing Business concept within the past two years and have gotten rave reviews on our new product, from The Bistro restaurant serving Starbucks to the in-room amenities. We hope you will give our hotel another try the next time you are in Louisville.

Iman Jackson and Jone Seabrooks were the most pleasant professional and helpful Marriott Employees We Have met.
We would highly recommend this hotel!
The rooms were clean and comfortable as was the restaurant. We especially appreciated the van ride provided by Joan to and from the restaurant!
