“Good in Many Ways”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Our group consisted of 4 adults and 2 children who stayed for 1 night after flying from Europe and before flying home. We had stayed here a couple of years before and were pleased with the improvements which Marriott had made. They had enlarged and upgraded the lobby area providing lots of comfortable sitting areas for individual groupings, installed several TV's, provided easily accessible computers, and a nice restaurant and bar area (this part is necessary as there are not many other choices in this neighborhood).

The rooms were clean and well kept and the staff was very friendly. Also the hotel provides a free shuttle to LaGuardia.

My only complaint concerned their pool policy (which, for us, was a problem). The pool area is an average size and was well landscaped with lots of sitting areas (including some chairs and tables that looked like they came from a dining area and were probably added to try to alleviate the congestion). However, (as another post has previously mentioned) the pool area was overrun with "neighborhood" groups almost all of whom had their own rolling coolers. The next morning when we were in the lobby waiting for the shuttle, we noticed the "coolers" starting to roll in again heading for the pool. This leaves little room for actual guests who might enjoy a swim or a place to relax after their long flights.

Dear Thor 171

Thank you for your positive review of your recent stay at the Courtyard by Marriott Laguardia. Im delighted to see you liked the improvements we have made to the hotel since your last stay and that our staff and accommodations met your needs. Our outdoor pool is one of our best features and we encourage our guests to use it during their stay. We do have a limited number of pool memberships during the summer months so weekends can be crowded. These retired school teachers, fireman and police officers pay for the same privledges overnight hotel guests enjoy and rarely effect the quality of our guests stays.
We hope future trips to New York bring you to the Courtyard LGA.
Sincerely,

Richard J Murphy
Assistant General Manager

We chose the Marriott Courtyard LaGuardia for my mother’s 90th birthday for it’s ideal location in Queens and the convenience of lodging for our out-of-town guests. The Courtyard product has upgraded its overall hotel class with major renovations chain wide. Banquet manager Ron Vogel along with his experienced and dedicated staff, assisted in all phases planning our event. Ron was key in helping choose the best menu options for our large group and was always just a phone call away to aid in any problems or questions that we had. The room was beautifully appointed and the carefully selected menu was attractively presented and enjoyed by all. Ron was there personally the evening of the party to make sure that things ran smoothly.
Special thanks to our mixology specialist Diane, and food and beverage manager Rich who micro managed behind the scenes. After a comfortable nights sleep, our guests were warmly greeted at breakfast the following morning by the familar wait staff to include Magdalia and Raphel who provided excellant service both days. The party was a huge success. Everyone in attendance bonded not only with family and friends but with the Marriott team as well. We owe Ron and staff a debt of gratitude for their outstanding performance.

Traveling with a family of six and this was a great hotel near LaGuardia. The rooms aren't amazing but they are clean and comfortable. The shuttle runs frequently and on time and they even took us to a nearby diner for a meal because we didn't have a rental car. The staff is truly amazing and made the stay really enjoyable.

Spent the night in this hotel on a business trip. Have stayed here before, and believe this spot to be a great place to stay if you need to be near NYC, CT, or Long Island. in general, hotel has everything covered. Nice pool area, decent fitness room, plenty of transportation options, updated lobby with newer bistro style restaurant, and staff was nothing more than friendly and accommodating with questions. I had asked for an IPad charger, and one was found for me to use.

I have always found parking on the street available if you want to avoid the parking fee, never had any issue. Agree with other comments that there is not to many choices for restaurants within walking distance, but they offer shuttle service to a few. I ate in the bistro and had excellent service from Hugo, food was very good.

Think this is a solid option for visitors of the area

Rooms smell like vomit and crap were combined in a stew
Luggage carts were unavailable
The Reception Desk Staff had a Lousy Attitude, were Lazy and could not Care Less
A terrible image of an otherwise consistently good brand. Hope this dump is their only one exception

I've stayed at this hotel numerous times - handy for the airport and even if you want a night in the city there's acceptable transport options. Don't expect lots to do near the hotel though!
The staff are always friendly and efficient - the theme nights are good fun with a fabulous hostess dressed as the Statue of Liberty.
The beds are very comfortable ... Just the job for a good nights rest.
Like most city hotels - best to reserve early to get the best rates as it can be expensive at the last minute.
