I stayed at the Courtyard for 10 days on business so I felt like I was here forever.
They put me in a room that was kind of in the back and across the hall from the stairs so I constantly heard people coming in and out of the stairs as the door slammed. That got annoying over time.
I had a nice view of the highway. The hotel location is tucked away on the other side of the highway from the rest of RWC and not walkable so you need to be driven to the other side to get to downtown. I was working in RWC and the Lyfts/Ubers are plentiful but around 8:30am very competitive. Some of the drivers aren't familiar with the hotel so you will have to direct them a little bit because it's close to the entrances and exits to the freeway.
It's a newer hotel so it has a more hip feel and the bed and furnishings are new. The front desk was very nice and they welcomed you to the hotel every time you arrived. I didn't have a chance to hang out in the public areas but it seemed like there were always people socializing or watching a game on the TV. They also offer little snacks around happy hour and the guys who work behind that area are also nice.
There is a small pool and a gym. The water canister gets replaced, I think, daily but it was out almost every time I walked through. I used the washers/dryers and they were good, no problems.
The one funny thing was that I didn't get a lot of refills on shampoo/conditioner. I thought I would get a new one every few days but I think out of 10 days I only got 2 replenishments. One time they took the old ones that I was using and just put it in the place where they put the new ones. My friends and I chuckled over that.
I would stay here again for work but I would also think about staying somewhere that was in easier walking distance to stores and restaurants. The only places you could walk were car dealerships and a weird new condo development.
