A good Louisville option

Staff was friendly, accommodations were nice and quiet. There were several restaurants within a few blocks so it was very walkable to most places we went.

summer pre-trip

Was not recognized as Gold, did not get a daily paper at my door or a bill day of departure. Given a loud room at first but they willingly changed our room when requested (even tho Gold status states preferences). Rooms are mediocre, but parking is convenient. Hotel location was awesome, walking distance to many, many Louisville shops, restaurants, bars and museums.

4th street and Market streets offer museums, bars, restaurants and shops. Try Toast on Market, Dish on Market, Doc Crowe's and Frazier Museum.

Great location

This hotel was located a few blocks from 4th street live, so it was easy to park your car in the garage and walk around. I visited the hotel when it was under a lot of construction, which took away from my overall hotel experience.

Marriott Courtyard Downtown - Louisville

The location of the Marriott Courtyard in Downtown Louisville couldn't be better. Across the street from the new KFC YUM! Stadium and less than a block from all the new renovation of the old warehouse row where new restaurants and pubs are being built. In a couple years this will really be THE place to be!! That being said I hope that Marriott will take this opportunity to renovate this property so it will be up to the Marriott Courtyard standard I have come to expect. This one is getting a bit rough around the edges. I'm also wondering why I was awakened by Housekeeping banging on my door at 9AM on a Saturday morning when check out is at Noon? Nothing like getting shocked awake early when you planned to sleep in, to spoil a stay at a hotel. Get a clue Marriott. How hard would it be for Housekeeping to call down to the front desk for a list of rooms that you KNOW have already checked out and let them start with those rooms first before waking sleeping guests?????

We had a wonderful dinner at Jeff Ruby's across the street. Absolutely amazing!! It's not cheap ($170.00 for 2)but I look forward to our next trip so we can eat there again! The bone-in Ribeye was one of the best I've ever eaten!! If they have no open reservations, the bar area is first come first seated. They don't open until 5PM so if you'll get there before 6PM you'll have no trouble getting a seat. They have lots of tables and booths in the bar area.

good location even with construction

We were compensated for our late arrival and not being able to find the parking lot. The desk clerk was friendly and we talked every time we arrived back from somewhere. We were there for the Fraternal Order of Eagles International convention. The hotel people were very friendly even though the city wasn't.

Nice Quick Stay

The staff there was very helpful and friendly. We didn't stay long as it was a resting point half way through a road trip, but we found it to be the perfect place to get some rest at a reasonable price.
