"weekend getaway with my wife."
This is our 3rd stay at this Courtyard. We like ti because it's easy to get to off I-110, close to the beaches and downtown. The rooms have been remodeled since our last stay 4 months ago, and are very modern with new furniture, lighting, bedding, and more. It may seem a little cramped to some, but we enjoyed it. The lobby is very clean and modern, and they have a bar/cafe that is open until 10 PM. The lobby reminds me a bit of a Gold Medallion airport lounge, but is pleasant with plenty of seating, free papers from all over, TV's, a business area with computers, flight computer so you can check your flights and connections, and other travel info. There's a nice outdoor pool and hot tub, but it was a little chilly for that, but it seems to be cleaned and treated and well maintained.
The staff, overall, are very friendly and helpful and knowledgeable about the city. Some of the maid service and housekeeping folks seemed a bit less so, several we encountered on the elevator wouldn't make eye contact or speak. Odd, as every Marriott we have ever stayed in, everyone on staff was very outgoing and friendly. Anyway, if you're looking for a fresh, comfortable hotel that's very convenient to everything, at a reasonable cost, stay here.
