I bidded on a 2.5-star hoping for the Courtyard for it's location. Instead, I got upgraded to the 3-star Marriott upriver.
I took the 8-minute trolley ride from downtown. Check-in was fine. Pleasant and helpful desk clerk, but he sounded as if he was reading from a script.
Had a very nice lunch in the hotel's restaurant. Used the business center computer to catch up on email and internet.
Average room. Very comfortable bed. View of the back lot.
Took the $9 shuttle back to the airport the next morning.
All in all, a pleasant stay for $50+, but I wouldn't choose the location again.
