Great location--walking distance to tons of restaurants, which is really lovely. Even if you are tired, though, walk to a restaurant--do not eat at the Bistro. I got a basic (totally overpriced, which is expected) salad, which had five bugs in it. Pretty gross. I agree with a previous reviewer regarding the hotel air, too, it felt heavy and not...

Emory University is an annual destination for me and Courtyard is the place I have stayed for the last 6 years. It is almost perfect. It was updated about 4 years ago and it is still nicely furnished and "fresh. The rooms are nice. And the staff is friendly and helpful. My complaint is that the fridge is a micro...

I stayed one night at this hotel during my book tour. Check-in was friendly, courteous and speedy. Wow, my suite was amazing (I was in rm 548) -- so much space! Included a dining and living room area, work desk with plenty of room. I love the interesting view of the inside courtyard area! So tempted to try the Taiyo...

We hold a matrimonial convention every year at the Courtyard Marriott. The staff and service is beyond excellent. All our guests have always been most looked after, the rooms are clean, property is awesome. Michael Roling has always been accommodating to our requests. I would highly recommend for your events.

This hotel is nothing special. The rooms are bare bones, the towels are thin and the toiletries are in tiny bottles. It appears to be one of the few hotels in Decatur and does not try very hard to please.

I am here now, as I write. This place has had a great facelift but the rooms stink. There is heavy use of chemical air deodorizer used to try to cover the old, stale, musty and moldy smells; I have a headache and irritated eyes. I would leave this hotel if I could. We have an interior room and it...

Love going to Decatur and this hotel is perfectly situated within walking distance of main square. That is however the only positive remark that can be made. My wife and I got a room straight out of 1950s with AC that made more noise than cool air, a shower that leaked all over the bathroom, all topped by a window...

This hotel is a short walk from the MARTA Decatur Station. Many options for food within a short walking distance. Hotel had large atrium with interior rooms looking into the atrium. Rooms were nicely appointed and large. Very courteous staff! Mattress was somewhat uncomfortable (lumpy). Perhaps mattresses are due for a change. Generally speaking the room was clean though the...
