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. Decatur is a quaint community, essentially in Atlanta, and this is convenient to Emory U. where I...

We stayed here for several nights while in town visiting friends. This is a good location within walking distance of many nice restaurants and shops. The parking is easy to get to - however, watch out for all the poles. We didn't hit any, but could see where a lot of others did as it is a bit tricky. The...

Stayed 2 nights. Will be checking out in a few minutes. From our arrival on the whole stay was exceptional. Chanel at the front desk greeted us by name. Everything was clean and well maintained. Also, super close to Atlanta but feels like a small town.

Atlanta can be tricky, and if you are not careful you can end up in a bad part of town. I normally stay north of town, but I wanted to try somewhere that would allow me to walk around and have dinner tat evening. The area there around Emory has a small town university feel even though it is in...

Traveled for work and self-parked the vehicle. The parking garage is underground and pretty tiny so it would definitely be difficult to navigate in an SUV or truck. Staff was very friendly and welcoming.

We booked a room for three nights, choosing this hotel for its proximity to relatives and the restaurants within walking distance. The location was perfect for us. The trendy courtyard was a bit cold and uninviting. When we got to our room there was an overpowering, eye-burning smell in our room that lasted until the next morning, and the windows...
