The Courtyard at the Marriot Downtown served as an excellent respite between wedding weekend events. As out-of-town guests joining other wedding attendees staying at the Courtyard, my friends and I appreciated hotel personnel charging the wedding weekend rate for the duration of our stay, a factor that will contribute to my return the next time I visit St. Louis.
Employees at the front desk were friendly, although I was surprised they didn’t explain the location of my room, and I ended up wandering around for a little while before finding it. I was pleased to see complimentary copies of The Wall Street Journal and River Front Times (RFT), a free newspaper detailing local events, eateries and entertainment venues available around the corner from the front desk. The hotel also displays a variety of business card-sized brochures for local activities and sight-seeing possibilities, a more convenient alternative to shuffling through a stack of bulky pamphlets. Employees also distributed St. Louis visitor guide magazines to those guests who made inquiries.
My standard double room was well lit and the temperature was easily regulated, never too warm or chilly. A writing desk and chair, armchair, chest of drawers and large television added to the comfort of the room, which was simultaneously cheerful and relaxing. The bedspreads were rich and colorful, and the walls were decorated with attractive art. Plenty of towels and soaps prevented trips to the front desk for extras, and an iron and board, hairdryer and coffeemaker were convenient. The sink was conveniently placed outside the bathroom, which came in handy when two of my friends and I were getting ready for scheduled events. The water pressure and temperature were always perfect.
The key cards for the room and building did not work with consistency, and even after a trip to the front desk, I ran into problems. However, a plumbing issue in the bathroom was quickly remedied by an employee, in spite of the late hour. The back entrances to the building were secure and well lit.
I was disappointed there was no complimentary breakfast. The CY Buffet is priced at $8.95 and includes scrambled eggs, bacon, fresh fruit, buttermilk biscuits with sausage gravy, breakfast pastries, fresh fruit, yogurt, hot and cold cereal, juice, coffee and do-it-yourself waffles and syrup. The waiter was very attentive to diners by clearing plates and refilling glasses. The CY Buffet is the priciest item on the menu, and other selections include a more stream-lined version of the buffet and eggs made to order. The dining room off the lobby is open and spacious.
A store with bottled beverages and snacks are available near the front desk. Nearby is a coffee bar area, limited to morning hours, adjacent to a fireplace lounge ideal for reading, chatting with fellow travelers or waiting for a breakfast companion. It flows into another lounge area with a big-screen television.
A quaint gazebo in the courtyard is an ideal spot to gather with friends during the day or evening. An outdoor area with tables and chairs is outside the pool, which is enclosed. Hours are available by calling the front desk, and were given as 10 a.m.-10 p.m. during my stay. Other activities required I leave the hotel earlier and return later than the hours given, which prevented my use of the pool. I would like to see an earlier opening time in the future.
Front desk employees were helpful with driving directions. Meanwhile, the guest guide in the room listed a number of restaurants with descriptions, delivery hours and accepted forms of payment. Orders were delivered directly to my door, and I wish more hotels would follow the Courtyard’s example by including such detailed dine-in choices. The one small trash can was definitely not sufficient after an evening of ordering in for three guests, and it would be better to have one large trash can and a smaller one for the bathroom/sink area.
The proximity of the hotel to popular tourist attractions like the Arch, visible from the parking lot, combined with the comfort of the hotel and courtesy of its staff, make the Courtyard Downtown a natural lodging choice for a weekend in St. Louis.
