Very Nice, Affordable Stay!
My husband & I were very pleased to stay at Courtyard. The staff was very pleasant, the atmosphere is comfortable & beautiful, and the breakfast buffet was wonderful. The room we stayed in was relaxing & had a great layout. The only thing we didn't care for was the view from our room, but we do not blame the hotel for it. They were building a parking garage across the street at the time of our stay, and there are quite a few other hotels in the area. As far as noise, it was very quiet in our room and the hallways. We were only a mile from LAX & never heard a plane. The bathroom & vanity area are nicely done & clean. The bed was clean & comfortable, as was the pull-out sofa. There was plenty of storage space for belongings. The wireless internet was easily accessible. The lobby & restaurant are very nice. There is a computer area for guests, there is a bar area, and adjacent to that is the classy, but casual open restaurant. They offer only valet parking for approx. $15 per day which seemed to be average pricing for the area. The parking area is directly in front of the hotel so we felt safe leaving our car there. The fountains in front appear to be well maintained & a great photo opporotunity! There are shopping malls, grocery stores, & restaurants all within a mile or two. This hotel is very close to all the beaches, including Marina Del Ray, & Manhattan Beach. They also offer shuttles to/from LAX. Our children didn't come for this stay, however we would bring them in the future. The area the hotel is in wasn't bad. We enjoyed our walk & the scenery. Would recommend to anyone!
