For a Courtyard by Marriott, this is MUCH ABOVE AVERAGE. Very nice rooms, clean, modern, etc. Great price too! If you stay on the side facing east, you hear some of the freeway noise in the a.m., but it's not awful. You get a FABULOUS view of mt. ranier on that side, so I'd say the tradeoff is well worth it. WOW.
The only complaint I have is that they charged me $10 a day for self parking (which is expected ... to be charged in a downtown location) but the problem is that they charged me $10 for each physical day I was parked (versus each 24-hour time period). So I arrived on Thursday night at 7 p.m. and left Saturday morning at 9 a.m. So I wasn't there even two 24 hour time periods. But they charged me three days of $10 parking. Given that the parking lot is mostly JUST for Courtyard, this seems kinda crazy. They don't charge you three days of hotel charges if you check in on Thursday and leave on Saturday!!??
So when checking out, I raised the issue and was stated the policy which I explained did not make sense, and the front desk person did remove one $10, but that's only b/c I asked. I think the place ought to revise their policy. If you stay there, you should ask about this, if enough folks do, they'll probably change it.
Other than that, GREAT place.
