Not your father's Courtyard A review of Courtyard By Marriott Boston Copley Square

Chose this hotel due to location and reviews on Tripadvisor, and booked two king rooms using Marriott reward points for two nights each. A free, full service breakfast was included. Staff are young, friendly and professional, with the exception of an annoyingly loud, chirpy and fake friendly woman in the breakfast room who was easily annoyed and annoying.

Our rooms were luxurious, with down bedding and the foam pillow I'd requested; our room layout made it seem more like a suite, my child's room was smaller. Both bathrooms were huge. The decor was upscale urban, modern edges, but cozy. Cleanliness met my exacting standards. Only quibble was not enough hooks for travel accessory bags and robes in the bathroom, and the breakfast staff seem to like to close up shop and stop making omelettes or replenishing the buffet items a bit early. They do accommodate any request, however, amid fake chirping.

The hotel is excellently situated for views, shopping, walking anywhere in a city that's made for pedestrians. We walked just about everywhere, and were greeted by a wonderful plate of cookies at the front desk upon our return in the afternoon.

We didn't pay cash for this stay, but I can say that this hotel is justified in its pricing, and well exceeds expectations of a Marriott Courtyard. I'd gladly stay here again and again, and plan to.
