If your impression of Courtyard by Marriott is the prototype three story donut plan in the suburbs, this hotel will come as a pleasant surprise. It's bigger, newer, nicer than your average Courtyard, and ups the ante for the brand as a whole. I've stayed here a couple of times this year and been very impressed both times. Room, amenities, restaurant (breakfast) were all first-rate. Plus you are either a long walk or a short drive from great shopping at Grand Boulevard, a lifestyle center that is almost adjacent to the hotel. Highly recommended.
