I had a great welcoming by Brian. In addition, I had a brief summary of the city’s tourist attractions and the amenities that they provided in the hotel. This was unique because no other hotels have done this while checking in. Great job!

Courtyard Marriott is in a great location. The hotel is beautiful and our room was fabulous. We overlooked the hill and parking lot on the backside of the hotel which was actually quite nice. The only downside was the steep parking fee.
