This hotel is located between Sea World, Disney, and Universal, so it's a convenient spot to stay if you want to jump between multiple venues--it's only about 15-20 minutes to each place. I'd categorize this as an expensive mid-range hotel that's just "okay." The best part of this hotel is the staff, who are friendly and responsive to whatever you need. That said, you have to seek them out and appear in person at the front desk, as they don't answer the phone for Guest Services no matter what time of day or night you call;. The breakfast buffet has nice variety but is pricey ($19/pp), so make this one of your main and biggest meals of the day if you want to get your money's worth. Otherwise, grab something at the parks or pretty much any other restaurant, as it will be cheaper and just as good. The building is pretty secure in that you need a room key to access the parking lot ($20/day to park) and the elevator (a pain when your hands are full and you can't grab your key). For the latter, take the stairs, it's much faster than the elevator and not nearly as clunky. Our room was tidy but not clean--teeny bugs on the counters (the hotel finally gave me a can of bug spray to keep in the room after 2 nights of repeat visitors) and the bathroom floor needed a good scrubbing which we ended up doing ourselves because their staff seemed overwhelmed in keeping up with housekeeping. Our 2BR room overlooked the parking lot and was an okay size for two adults but would have been very tight for any more than that; my daughter and I had to get ready at the sink one at a time because it's simply not big enough for two people to use--the counter is tiny. They provide shampoo, conditioner, and body wash in the shower but no lotion, so bring your own. The toilet paper is harsh--you could almost use it as writing paper, it's that crisp. Bring earplugs, as the walls are paper thin and this hotel is busy, so it's quite loud. Our toilet glugged loudly anytime anyone else flushed theirs, but that noise was solved by keeping the bathroom door closed. Earplugs helped with the noise in the hallways and the people in the next rooms, but the slamming doors were difficult to get around. It's a hotel that provides the basics, so you'll have a comfortable place to stay but it's not luxury.

Jose made my vacation better!! We had a horrible experience at another Marriott property the night we arrived so we switched places. When we arrived at the Courtyard, Jose greeted us with a smile and an extremely helpful attitude. We were going to leave Marriott after 13 years of being loyal members because of the way we were treated the night before but Jose restored my faith in hospitality! He went out of his way to make sure we were happy and had the best accommodation possible. I can’t thank him enough for his friendly attitude and willingness to go above and beyond. You don’t see customer service like this anymore and it was so needed after the terrible start to our vacation. Will definitely come back to this hotel!
