It's nice, when traveling, when you can secure a decent lodging with ready access to major highways and is close to some good dining and shopping. This Courtyard by Marriott is all of the former, but the icing on the cake is the location, close to everything, including the Hanes Mall, but feeling like it's on a quiet, residential street.
The hotel seemed almost secluded, but it was easy to find and just a few minutes off the highway. There was no road noise at all from the highway or the busy commercial area it's adjacent to. The exterior was well-cared for, which is always a good sign of a well-managed property. Having been in landscaping for a number of years, I always look forward to going to the South, where horticulture is respected and landscapes are given proper attention.
The room was very nice, exactly what you'd expect from a Marriott property. The staff were very friendly and helpful and performed their jobs well. When one front desk attendant heard I was in town for a drum corps competition, she offered some information about future concerts coming to the area.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Courtyard and plan to book there in the future!More
