We had a pleasant stay at Courtyard Marriott in Decatur visiting familymembers next door to the hotel. Courtyard is convienent in downtown Decatur close to many restaurants and MARTA, which took us to downtown Atlanta several times. The rooms are large with two large extra comfortable beds. Cleaning is superb. Breakfast was an option which we had a couple of...

By far the nicest Courtyard we have ever stayed in - nicer than several "regular" Marriotts. Friendly front desk staff. It's a hotel not a motel. It has an indoor pool. A restaurant. A small bar. A great lobby. It only lacks bellmen. The room is typical Marriott. Comfortably furnished. Very clean. The bed is also comfortable, if a little...

Stayed here while on a visit to Emory University. Clean quiet safe hotel....very typical moderate courtyard. Room was clean and furnishings very well maintained. All rooms open up to lobby and that was a nice touch. Restaurant in lobby but closes at 10:00 PM. We arrived at 10 and hungry so had to fend at the very expensive 24/7 market...

Decatur feels like a small town in the middle of a metro area. Tree lined streets and big center square. This Hotel was spotless, king room was very spacious and the bed and pillows were actually really, really comfortable. You can't beat the location-right by the central square. We were here during an arts festival and walked right out the...

I stayed four nights. There is a large convention center attached. The hotel's shuttle took me to and from a wedding that was nearby, but too far to walk and too complicated on city buses. The hotel is walking distance to downtown Decatur and The Square where all the restaurants are. And the Marta station.
