Courtyard Topeka
Ranked #17 of 33 Hotels in Topeka
Reviewed August 24, 2012

While the staff are young friendly folks, better communication is needed at registration regarding the Maximus gym available to customers, and mold cleanup is needed for the room we stayed in (#201).

We checked in on a Sunday night with the only staff person apparently onsite. The frontdesk gal also fulfilled our request for the proper mattress pad to fit a king bed (rather than the queen that was on there) and extra pillows!

A little pet peeve: Why do they use old thin mattress pads with the little diagonal elastic at the corners? They audibly "pop" off like bread in a toaster as soon as you lay down, thus sentencing one to a fitful night of thrashing about in yards of untethered sheets?!! I think management should have to sleep in their own hotel beds before subjecting us to them.

My traveling companion was miserable for days with constant violent sneezing attacks, congestion, runny nose, red eyes, etc... We didn't realize the wallpaper under the blackout curtain near the A/C was soggy and hanging loose. We looked under it and saw lots of mold and mildew on the wall! We informed the front desk at check-out and they reduced our room charges a bit, but it's a business trip anyway!

The front desk did not tell us this Marriott has an agreement with the local Maximus athletic club, but apparently they do. Since we didn't know, we paid to use the club for a week. Wow! Try getting your money back from an athletic facility after they have it in their hands. It's impossible. The Marriott manager said we should not have been charged, but the Maximus front desk gal didn't know that & neither did we. The Maximus manager refused to refund our money and told us the Marriott would reimburse us. Very frustrating.

Hotel is "hidden" behind other properties. Traveler's, if heading north on Wanamaker Rd, virtually impossible to see--you have to know it sits back on the edge of the mall parking lot ( when heading S you can see a little better). For a business hotel, rooms size is nice--2 Q, sitting chair & desk area, you did not feel crowded. Free in-room internet is a plus. Convenient to shopping and restaurants in the area.

We are a little hidden from the main road, which can be good and bad. Good so you don't have heavy traffic noise, and bad if you aren't familier to the area. Thanks for giving our future guests a heads up. For those travelers, look for the West Ridge Mall, we are located in their parking lot, behind the Chili's, Red Lobster and Olive Garden. I know those are great places to eat, but don't forget that we have a Bistro in our lobby with great options for breakfast and dinner.

I am, however, glad you found us and enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you next time and again we appreciate you helping others find us with out any hassle. See you next time!

Spent 4 days in July 2012 on a business trip at The Courtyard by Marriott in Topeka. The staff was amazing from beginning to end. The room was clean and comfortable. The desk area was adequate and easy to use. Yes I will stay there next time I am in Topeka.

Room Tip: My room on the third floor was lovely.

Had the opportunity to stay at night at the Courtyard. Overall I thought the staff was nice and accommodating. The Bistro seems like a good concept. I will the lounge area that is set off to the side. The cleanliness of that area could be better, but it's a nice gathering place. Overall the room was clean and the TV and internet worked great.

Well, another family wedding and another great stay. We were able to get directions and maps from the staff and the large smart board in the lobby. Great staff and good stay. No problems with noise, and we were on the bottom floor near the end entrance. There is a mall just behind the property. We bought last minute clothes and gifts at the wonderful Burlington Coat Factory. Three of us gals got our nails done at a nearby nail salon. The water is consistently hot for your showers. Hotel is only 28 minutes from a casino, if that's an interest. We would stay again!

Room Tip: We have had good sleep and quiet on first floor and second floor.

Yey! I'm so glad you made it back...and had another great experience with us at the Courtyard Topeka! . I hope you got to try out some of the new items in the Bistro. We have a great Turkey Spinach and Artichoke sandwhich that is AMAZING! If you didn't get to try it here, you definately need to seek out a Courtyard near you and try it. Thank you so much for acknowledging us, we appreciate it very much, and hope to see you again in the future.

I take great pride in our overall service, so thank you for acknowledging that! We are so fortunate to be conveniently located in the Mall parking lot, and so close to everything. But....don't forget we have a variety of healthy breakfast and dinner options in our newly renovated (Fall 2011) Bistro open daily. Safe travels and we will see you again soon!
