I choose your facility to get away from my life for a few days. Im a single mother of twins. Im also a part of the Marriott family and have high standards for 3-5 star establishments. Training with WHI was something i kept all my working years. I understand that people pay higher for destination properties because of the sites that surround you but i would caution sacrificing quality over the "illusion" of resort life. I asked for water and never received it. I asked for breakfast to eat in the dining room and i was given a to go box with very dried out avacado toast that was actually garlic bread with avacado thinly smeared on?? It was TERRIBLE and not the avacado toast im used to getting with the Courtyard. (Food is a standard that attaches itself to a property name.)The other reason for my stay was to see if i feel safe at your facility so i may return with my 2 small children to enjoy some fun and sun this year. Im sorry to say that i dont feel safe. Your board walk is exposed to public peirs and due to a lack of security guard patroles outside, i was witness to MANY drug deal transaction right out of my $222.00 Bayfront View room till all hours of the night and morning. (Seriously... till 3am this stuff went on for both nights! FYI they do brown paper bag drop offs in the green garbage can right outside the bistro doors!!) Bottom line i feel deceived by this property and feel that it was worth more along the lines of $79.00 per night than the $222.00 i was forced.

We booked a one night stay at the Courtyard which was promoted to include free breakfast. The total for our stay was $400 with taxes. Naturally we expected a five star, first class experience. During check in I asked if I could give my Marriott rewards number but was told that I could not apply it to my stay because I booked with a third party. Talk about feeling less than first class off the bat. But the gentleman at check in was kind enough to offer me FREE parking, which otherwise we would have had to pay. Really? $400 for our stay plus we have to pay for parking. OK. Then I was handed vouchers for breakfast worth $20 each for the bistro (it's a stand in line breakfast counter, nothing special). All in all it was a nice hotel with a beautiful view of Lake Erie. It is located near the convention center and the Sheraton. The Courtyard was clean and the beds were comfortable. But it was not worth the $400 spend for the overnight stay. I would suggest to shop around for other hotels where you will get the same quality and possibly more amenities for a lot less. There are a couple of restaurants nearby. We went to Woody's Barge which food was mainly fried, not the best quality. The Cove at the Sheraton looked to be better but we were hungry and Woody's was able to seat us quickly. I would recommend to head over to Presque Isle where you can enjoy the beach, kayaking, biking, etc... We love this area and we will be back but not to the Courtyard.
