This is a very nice Courtyard. We got booked into it on Priceline (bid $70; reg. rate was $139). It is a terrific location for the coliseum (literally directly across the street) and convention center, and you can walk to the Vista area. Parking is a little tricky... tight spaces in the garage area and not many of them, but we made it OK with our mid-size SUV. I watched someone in a large SUV (like an Expedition, I think) try to go in (clearance was 6 feet), and it almost got stuck. (Larger vehicles park on the upper, outdoor deck.) We did not get charged for parking, as some reviewers have complained about, so I'm wondering if they only charge during big events (nothing going on at the coliseum during our stay). Front desk was helpful, and all of the staff was friendly. Beds are heavenly. Very comfy! Would definitely stay there again.
