“Comfortable/Affordable Room”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Stayed in the Courtyard Boston Norwood/Canton (which is no where near Boston -- 40 mins away). The room was comfortable and clean. Plenty of parking (free). Easy access to Rt 1 (Boston/Providence Highway) and Route 95. The lobby and "Bistro" were nice, but there was no complimentary breakfast like at a Fairfield Inn (also by Marriott). Complimentary wireless was great. You will need a car to get anywhere, as the hotel isn't really near the city -- it's about half way between Boston and Providence.

I've stayed at this Courtyard many times over the last year, as I have family in the area. The property has always been well run and fully up to the Courtyard standard. This was my first stay there since the rooms were re-decorated to the latest decor and with the "Bistro" operating in place of the former lobby restaurant. One particularly nice feature is that the court yard now functions like a real court yard - with a large patio and comfortable out door tables and chairs. We enjoyed having a bottle of wine (which we picked up at a nearby package store) in the evening with my sister and her husband.

While I would not recommend this location if you are actually doing something in Boston - as its about a 15 mile ride into the city - with no nearby transit. The main attraction to the area is Gillette Stadium (New England Patriots) which host many other field sports event outside the football season. The immediate area features an industrial park along US 1 - an endless ribbon of car dealers, office parks and big-box stores.

The hotel itself is well maintained and run and the staff friendly and helpful. Like most Courtyards, there is reliable WIFI in both rooms and public areas at no extra charge, as well as several computers you can use to freely (including printing). The newly re-done lobby has outlets accessible by every chair as well as computer counter-tops that double as bar tables in the evening. The staff were very helpful. My son forgot his tooth brush and they provided us with a free one right away.

My 4 rating takes into account that the fitness center is average - treadmill, elliptical trainer and some free weights, but no Universal type machine. In addition, there are no microwaves or fridges in the rooms as there are at some Courtyards, now. The bath rooms do have nightlights, which is a nice feature. All in all, you will have a very comfortable stay at this property.

We were on the first floor room with 2 queen beds with views of the beautiful courtyard. The shower and toilet are in a separate room. The bed were comfortable and a large flat screeen TV. The on site dining is a Bistro. We didn't eat there but they are restaurants in the area within driving distance.

The only thing missing is a full dinner menu restaurant, but the "Bistro" does sell a couple of dinner items. No restaurants are located in walking distance for those without cars. They don't sell gum (kids & carpets in the rooms, etc.), so the night manager give me a stick of his gum. Stayed 4 nights.

We stayed at this Courtyard in Norwood for two nights because we attended a wedding in the area. The check-in process was smooth and efficient as I have come to expect from the Marriott chain. The room was well appointed and updated with the latest Marriott Courtyard decor. All items were in excellent working condition with no issues. The common areas were spotless, coffee and cold water was available and the business center was fully functional.
After a long drive to Norwood, I was in the mood for a refreshment from the Bistro. Although it was rather late, the server at the Bistro was friendly and allowed me to purchase my beverage knowing I was probably tired and thirsty. I was very grateful to her.
Obtaining information at the front desk for a variety dining recommendations and local sights were provided at the front desk effortlessly. We all enjoyed our stay immensely!
The housekeeping department was exceptional. Requests for extra towels and necessities were handled quickly and courteously.
One thing to remember is that the Courtyard is designed for business travelers and as a result, many families traveling with kids that stay at a Courtyard expect something different in terms of amenities, restaurants, etc.

I spent 2 nights at the Courtyard Norwood for a business trip in May 2012. I checked in around 8 p.m. (discount corporate rate) and selected a first floor room. I was also given the chance to spin the wheel for my Marriott rewards (won a free Starbucks drink, prepared at the hotel restaurant).

The hotel appeared to have been renovated recently; however, the fitness center could use an upgrade. It's small and could use newer equipment. They had 2 or 33several treadmills as well as a Life Fitness elliptical (I prefer Precor) and free weights with a bench.

Front desk service was friendly and efficient as was service at the restaurant/bar.

Other colleagues used the Sheraton and Hilton and claimed the gym was better. I plan to try the Hilton next time.

**One interesting point was the television. No matter what channel the television was on when I turned it off, when I turned on the television Fox News channel was on. It was strange. Usually the hotel television is programmed to a channel with hotel events and amenities. However, given that it's election season and Mitt Romney is a Mormon, I guess this Mormon owned hotel chain is supportive of him via programming Fox News on the televisions.

Room Tip: The first floor is no problem at this hotel. It's very quiet (inner courtyard facing room).
