“Lobby Nice, Rooms Not so Much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

The lobby area has a very nice modern theme to it, and the staff are very pleasant. However, the rooms are tiny (beds face the window rather than the TV) with paper thin walls and the rest of the hotel just feels awfully outdated. The hallways have wallpaper and carpeting that look like they're from the 80s, and the ugly beige bathroom tiles have a similar look. They really need to modernize these features of the hotel (to match the lobby). Oddly, there seems to be no vending machines anywhere in the hotel, despite the "vending" signs on each floor. They only have ice machines. Finally and while we didn't use it, the pool area looked junkier than other Courtyards we've stayed at. I'm a bit surprised how many glowing reviews this place got. I love Courtyards, but this one just doesn't measure up to the typical Marriott standards, in my opinion.

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments regarding our hotel in Poughkeepsie. We sincerely appreciate guest feedback as it helps us to improve our product and services. We are pleased to advise you that we are in the process of renovating our guest rooms. This will provide our guests with a completely updated facility by spring 2013. Having completed the lobby last year, adding the Bistro for breakfast, dinner, evening bar service and Starbucks has added convenience and a sophisticated element to our lobby and public space. Our 24 Hour market with its fresh food and large selection of snack and drinks has replaced vending machines. We do hope that you will consider stopping in to see all of the changes on your next trip to the Hudson Valley.

spent a weekend night just before Christmas, and would definately recommend to others. The hotel is clean and spiffy, the staff and management attentive and friendly. A solid choice if youre in the area.

Didn't think the twelve miles or so from I-84 was a very big deal. Until we hit the traffic! It was stop and go for a solid twelve miles, which took at least 45 minutes. But if your interested in saving a few bucks, it might be worth the aggravation. It looked like the renovations definitely stopped at the lobby. But the rooms were clean. Except for the bad smell from the heating unit. Front desk service was pleasant though which is always nice.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of our hotel. We appreciate the extra effort that guests take to share their experiences. As you noted, we did complete a full renovation of our lobby and public spaces last year. This included the addition of our Bistro with fresh choices for breakfast, dinner and drinks. We have plans in place to complete our guest room renovations in early 2013. We do hope that you will consider visiting us again soon.

I had to stay here while waiting on the movers to arrive with my belongings. Location is on the "main drag" and was convenient to my new residence. Front desk staff friendly & knowledgable. Lobby area features a nice bistro where you can order from a limited menu food & drinks. Rooms were comfortable, wi-fi worked well. Bath area a bit small but adequate. I didn't take advantage of it but the hotel features an indoor pool & jacuzzi. Some rooms feature a fridge, be sure to ask. Overall a comfortable place to stay!

Overall, the stay was great. Everyone was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean, but only one downfall was the pull out sofa had no sheets. They were very accommodating and took care of the sofa bed, with no issue. I would stay here again.

My brother made reservations for our family to stay in Poughkeepsie next to the wedding venue. The hotel staff was friendly, accomodating, and helpful. The room was clean, no smell of smoke and comfortable. I am very pleased how Marriott always knows how to treat their customers. Never a surprise and always enjoyable.

Spacious rooms that were clean and comfortable. Nice amenities. The staff was extremely polite and courteous, both at check in and throughout the stay. I love the look of the Courtyard lobby. Really, a great overall experience. The pool area and gym was well-kept and pretty good.
