convenient downtown

Pros: Very clean, good wifi, comfortable bed
Location: lots of places to eat across the street, Starbucks around the corner and a small store one block away
Even amid a lot of street construction the staff was very helpful, friendly. Hotel itself is well maintained and all that one would expect from a Marriott facility.

Fantastic room

This room was extremely clean and the price was excellent. The location is right downtown close to everything. I will be back again.

Too much noise

Both the Courtyard by Marriott and the Marriott Residence Inn share the remodeled Humble Oil office building. Rooms are nice and fairly comfortable. However, rooms facing the city streets are quite noisy. The replacement windows do not block out street noise. You want an interior room facing an air shaft. These rooms are much quieter, though there is no view. Staff is very friendly and the hotel is conveniently located right next to Houston's light rail system. Food and service in restaurant is not up to Marriott standards. The lobby bar is very small, and cigarette smoke tends to find its way into the dining area. The Courtyard was my second choice for downtown lodging in Houston. Fitness room is small and limited, but the third floor outdoor pool is nice.

A little small

Our overall experience with this hotel was positive. However, the rooms are very small. If you are staying alone, then you'll be fine. We had two children and it was very tight! Everything else was great here!

Turned out to be great

I originally had planned on staying in a 5 star hotel in downtown Houston, but things went out of hand and I was forced to stay at another level. The Courtyard still made me very pleased, the room was spacious and very clean and the staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. The employees alone would be a reason for me to stay again, N works the desk and made my stay very personable, she even dropped everything at the desk to help me take a picture before a date on memorial day. I did not like the absence of parking though, valet only is a little restrictive. No real restaurant in the hotel, but plenty surround it downtown.

Great Weekend Hotel

We recently stayed at the Courtyard and had a positive experience. We were welcomed by a friendly staff and had a prompt check in. They were able to put our group on the same floor even though we requested it at the last minute. The rooms were spacious and very well maintained. The weather was bad so we decided to stay in and have dinner at the hotel restaurant. The food was good (and the drinks were too).

great deal!

The price was really good. Location was on Main street in the middle of the downtown, just a few blocks from the convention center. Spacious, comfortable, quiet room. Great staff. Bit of mildew on the shower curtain but otherwise clean and in great shape.
