The greeting at the front desk was very cordial. The room was spacious and comfortable. The room was not the quietest. I could hear the conversation in the adjoining room through the connecting door. This is a problem in many older hotels. Luckily, my neighbor was pretty quiet. It is well located in the heart of Decatur with lots of...

This is a beautiful hotel in a fantastic location. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and so were the pillows. However, the noise level throughout the night was worse than any hotel I have ever stayed in. The problem with the noise level seemed to be caused by three or more factors. The first issue we had was...

My husband and I stayed here 3 nites for a Wedding, and although the location is minutes from downtown Atlanta, in a quaint town with many shops and restaurants, the service is poor and I was disappointed that we had to pay more the first night than the next 2 nights, since staff said there was no wedding rate available...

Stayed two nights recently while attending the spring graduation exercises for Emory University. Yes, the parking garage is a little tight - we had no trouble but were very careful. And on leaving we did have a little trouble with the key card reader. Other than that, however, we had a really nice stay and were very pleased with our...

A group of us had to travel to Decatur last week for a friend's funeral after she was tragically murdered in her home the week before. It was a difficult time, to say the least. We'd all stayed at this hotel two years ago when our same friends were married and were pleased. However, on this return visit, we were...

This is a very good hotel in a great location. It is within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants in downtown Decatur. The room itself is nice, and right along with what you'd expect from this price range and star level hotel. Very nice, comfortable, and clean. Nothing over the top, but definitely no complaints from me. I...

This is by far the nicest Courtyard Marriott I have ever stayed at. I have been to at least 30 different Courtyard properties. The design and functionality of this property is ideal for business or leisure travel and the location can't be beat.
