“Great staff, clean rooms, good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

My husband and I stayed at this Courtyard on a short visit to the Seattle area to see Mount Rainier and the Woodinville area wineries. Bellevue was a really nice city with tons of restaurant and shopping options within walking distance from the hotel. We knew this was the right hotel for us when we walked up to the front desk to check in and all of the staff were wearing Seahawks jerseys in honor of the hotel's NFL sponsorship. (It was a game day.) The check-in process was super fast, the parking was convenient right below the hotel, and everyone that worked at the hotel was really friendly and helpful, including the bartender. We did have one issue with our AC unit. We came back after a day full of sightseeing and it wasn't working. I called down to the front desk and a repairman knocked on our door within 10 minutes to fix it. We would definitely stay here again.

Marriott Courtyard in Bellevue is in a great location downtown, particularly for a business traveller. You're within walking distance of a large number of good dinner restaurants from casual microbrewery to Asian Fusion to upscale seafood and steak. There's a decent sushi/Japanese place next door too. Staff is nice but by the book. I've been asked here to show my picture id on check-in more than in any other hotel in the world (including some pretty gnarly places) so apparently there's some kind of security issue in the neighborhood that isn't obvious. The downstairs garage is a serious pain to park in - if you're staying here and your car rental co has 'upgraded' you to a Yukon - give it back - you won't be able to park. Also - don't forget your key; you'll get locked in the garage. The breakfast restaurant is ok but service for non buffet is slow. There's a Starbucks downstairs, but they don't appear to have an oven - so no hot breakfast there either. All in all - good place to stay but eat elsewhere and take care in the garage.

This hotel is close to Convention center. Express bus from SeaTac airport only $2.50, dropped us off 1 short block from Hotel. Great customer service, all front desk staff were helpful. Restaurant food was fresh with good menu. Restaurant and bar close early on Friday & Saturday 10:00 PM. Our conference did not finish until 10:00 PM, came back to hotel everything was closed. Nice lobby to sit with friends but you had to bring food and drinks from elsewhere after 10:00 PM. Lots of restaurants & bars really close by. Nice small indoor pool and good gym. Rooms were very comfortable and had a great nights sleep. We will stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Inside rooms on second floor are on same level as the courtyard.

Well, this is probably the nicest Courtyard I've been in. Not only is it superbly located\ (walking distance to a bunch of great restaurants and Bellevue Square) it's also very new and nice. The room was super clean as always, and very comfortable - no auto sensing thermostat, so I slept like a baby. I will definitely stay here again.

Clean and luxurious rooms. Great cleaning service as well! Love this hotel. The location was perfect and in walking distance to a wonderful shopping center/mall. Tons of great restaurants nearby. Located just far enough off the highway to be quiet, but close enough to get back on in under a few minutes. Location was perfect for what I needed during my stay.

The title of my review says it all. If you value customer service as much as I do, you'll LOVE it here! From the minute I checked in, the staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Here's what really did it for me though; there were two nights were I was craving some illy coffee (which they serve at their restaurant - awesome!!) but each time I called the restaurant, they were closed. So what did the front desk staff do? They personally went over and made me two cups of fresh illy Americanos - and for free! You don't see that level of customer service everywhere so I really appreciated it.

Onto the other parts of the hotel....

Their restaurant is great - I only had breakfast there and it was incredibly fresh and tasty. It's not free but for good reason - it's all cooked to order - real eggs, real oatmeal and real juice!

I'd give their rooms 4 stars though. It was clean and very spacious but the closet space was really small. The internet was poor. It might be suitable for people just checking up on emails, but don't expect to make Skype video calls on this connection. A tip to hotel management: we're in 2013 - please upgrade your internet bandwidth - the last time a 1 Mb/s connection was considered "high-speed" was in 2003!

I didn't go to the gym so I can't say anything about it. Parking is $12 a night - not too high, but for the price I'm paying for the room, I would've expected this to be included. Location is perfect, since you're walking distance from pretty much everything (Downtown Bellevue is really small in general). The Asian restaurant next door (Kobe) stays open late and makes some really good sushi!

Overall, I'd *definitely* stay here again!

I loved this hotel. It's in a great location, downtown Bellevue, but not super noisy. Our room was clean and comfortable, the front lobby is fancy, clean, and the staff are nice. Wifi was fast and easy. Definitely the best Courtyard Marriott in the Bellevue area!
