Wonderful stay!

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful with directions to nearby attractions. Our group received a free shuttle service to 4th Street live which was fantastic. We returned to our hotel around 2am and even though it was late and a couple of my friends were probably loud the hotel staff talked with us and told us about a late night pizza place to have pizza delivered! The hotel has a great little lobby store to purchase snacks, drinks, or toiletries you forgot at home etc. We loved it!! The breakfast/dinner restaurant offer great breakfast items we were thrilled to have it open til noon so we could eat before our departure. My only very minimal complaint was a knock at the door @ 9:30 from housekeeping. My group was still sleeping so that kinda stunk but in her defense I didn't put the "Do not disturb" hanger on the door knob. I didn't expect anyone to come so early when check out is at noon. However this is not a big deal we had a wonderful trip and a fantastic experience at a very nice hotel with very pleasant employees! If we ever travel to Louisville again we will be staying at the Courtyard Marriott! :)

great location in downtown Louisville!

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, service, lobby
Cons: add a free buffet breakfast!
had never visited the city before so my wife and I opted for something in the heart of the "city." Our room faced the Yum Center across the street so great location if you are there for a concert, etc. Hotel looked and felt new. There was a problem with our reservation but the front desk was great about it. Gave us water, cookies and waived our parking for that night. Didn't have to do any of that but very service oriented. Room had a king with nice comforter, pillows. flat screen, carpet and bathroom fixtures. I work out most days so used their gym twice. Elliptical and treadmills were good brand - Life Fitness which is what my gym uses. Parking was affordable and attached to the hotel - I think it was $8 per day - a joke considering where I live in Chicago its $30/day. Lobby was nice - well lit, flat screens with local activities, ample seating, and just off the lobby was a restaurant/bar. Down the street is a cluster of nice restaurants - Irish pub, mexican, pizza, etc. All local and fun. We tried the Irish Pub and had a nice time. Walk to 4th street about 4 blocks away. Outdoor entertainment area with bars, restaurants and a CVS to get sodas, etc. Tried Smash Burger. excellent!

Friendly Staff. Good Location

Pros: Free Internet, reasonably priced for location
The staff are excellent and very helpful. Very friendly and always available. Rooms are comfortable and with a minor exception, housekeeping is good. I'm sure it's an oversight so not really worth getting into detail but let the staff know if you have an issue. As attentive as they are, I'm sure any issue will be immediately rectified.

i thought it was a bit old and run down

Pros: Free Internet
i didn't really like my stay at this location. it was out dated and run down. the linens need to be replaced and the hotel was under construction. the location was very good thought. and the front desk and bar service was great. i loved the lady that works in the bar area.
