Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott New York Manhattan / Times Square South New York City
Great location, good hotel.
We stayed at the Courtyard over July 4th this summer and it was fantastic. The rooms are all right, a bit small, and there's no view from one side of the building. But overall, for $129 a night, you can't get a better deal!
Within walking distance to Times Square and the subway, this hotel gets my thumbs up!
The only disadvantage was that there's about six rooms on a floor and it tooks us nearly 45 minutes on check-out day to get downstairs. There are only 3 elevators and they don't accomodate a lot.
Top Notch Hotel and Best Value
I was able to stay only a short walk to Times Square. It was quiet and the staff was friendly. I had a situation that could have ruined my trip. The manager of the hotel helped out and made it enjoyable. Keep checking the Marriott web site for deals as the price was lowered a week before my trip. The breakfast buffet was good, but a little expensive. I will stay here again the next time I travel to New York City.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2004. Very clean, nice sized rooms. Very professional and friendly staff. Check-in and check-out quick and trouble free. Much better than higher priced Marquis.
Great location, clean rooms, friendly staff
We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott Times Square South on West 40th St. for $179/night, 2 double beds, booked online this past weekend. I can't say enough about this hotel. It was very clean, spacious for a room in the city, and the service was great. Everyone greeted us with a "hello" and a smile, and all the staff was very good-natured. We really loved the location, just a block or 2 from Times Square, and walking distance to Rockefeller Center, Grand Central, St. Patrick's, etc...It was not noisy at all, and we would definitely stay here again.
A great place to stay in NYC
My husband and I stayed here the week before Christmas 2003, flying out on Christmas morning. We arrived at 10:00a.m. (way before check-in), and the staff was very accomodating. They said they only had a handicapped room available, and we gladly took it.
The hotel does not have a big, fancy lobby, but the staff was very friendly, and willing to answer any questions we had. We walked almost everywhere: The Empire State Building, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park. We walked to a Broadway play, and never felt unsafe no matter what time we were out.
I went to the Marriott web site and was able to book this hotel room for $99 a night. I was sceptical because the price was so reasonable, but now because of the price, combined with the location, I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. If you want to stay near Times Square for a reasonable price, I would highly recommend the Courtyard at Times Square.
Loved the Courtyard!
We stayed at the Courtyard Times Square in September 2003. I received a free 3 night vacation when I refinanced my home mortgage and chose the Courtyard from the available NYC hotels due to the location. We were very pleased with this hotel. The staff was wonderful. We came in on Amtrak hours before check-in time and they held our bags in a locked room so we could start sightseeing. They did the same thing after we checked out and were waiting for our late afternoon train. The lobby is very small but there was a free coffee and mocha machine right by the elevators and a basket of free apples on the check-in desk. Our room was on the 25th floor and had a view of the Empire State Building. The room was large for Manhattan and very clean except that the carpet looked a little grimy. I guess that's inevitable in NYC. Our package included complimentary breakfast for 2. The hotel restaurant serves only breakfast but they have made to order omelets, waffles, eggs, bacon, cereal, yogurt, fruit, etc. We had a 4 year old with us and even though our package included breakfast only for 2 they served him at no extra charge. The location is great â Times Square is right around the corner and from the back entrance Bryant Park is at the end of the block. We walked to Rockefeller Plaza, 5th Avenue, the Empire State Building and the train station. There is a subway station nearby as well as many restaurants. We especially recommend Tony's Di Napoli at 147 West 43rd Street in Times Square. They serve Italian food family style â we got a main course that filled up all 3 of us (very hungry) for only $17 total. The Courtyard has conference rooms and seems to cater primarily to the business traveler but they are very accommodating to tourists. We were very happy there and would definitely stay there again even if we had to pay.
Very good stay at Courtyard
Spent one night at the Courtyard Times Square South. Check-in took less than a minute, the room was clean and large for a New York hotel, and I was very pleased with the soundproofing; I could see traffic, busses, and trucks, but barely heard them. The hotel is located close enough to Times Square and the Broadway theaters to walk, but it is not in the area where there are mobs of people. One problem: on Sunday, all the immediate restaurants, drug stores, gyms, etc. were closed.
Five of us; two daughters , two granddaughters and myself, arrived late Friday evening. The hotel was overbooked. They could not have been more accommodating. We were provided taxi fare to and from another hotel for the night, paid in full, plus free parking for one night, and a full breakfast for all five of us. The next morning we left all our baggage at the hotel. When we returned, we had two adjoining rooms that were very clean. All the staff were great. The hotel is centrally located and we walked to stores, theatre, and restaurants. It was a wonderful weekend.
Pricey but good facility
Stayed one night at this hotel for $269, which seems high to me. Front desk service was wonderful. Room was fine -- including light-stopping shades that actually stopped every lumen of light from the outside. Bed was comfortable. In other words, it had everything the business traveler needed, but at that price....
Hotel was okay - location good - staff uncaring and inattentive
