I regularly stay at Marriot Courtyards while on business trips. While this hotel had great public areas (very attractive lobby) and the rooms are renovated and comfortable, they have very substandard food service. On my first night in he hotel, I ordered room service for dinner. After taking an hour for it to arrive, the food was terrible and tasted like a bad Lean Cuisine. After placing my tray outside my room for pickup, it remained there for TWO DAYS!!!! I noticed that several other trays were in the hallway as well, making it smell terrible, so I finally called the front desk to collect them. There is absolutely no reason why food should sit out there for that long, as I imagine it violates numerous health codes. When visiting the restaurant for breakfast, I twice waited for 20 minutes before anyone came over to take my drink order and once just had to leave with no beverage after no one came over after 45 minutes. Put is this way, when you do finally place a drink order, go ahead and ask for the bill unless you plan on leisurely eating breakfast for 2 hours. Other than the food service, this met all the standards of a Marriot Courtyard.
