Despite Covid 19 restrictions, my partner and I had to spend some time in Keene, NH, and the Marriott Courtyard was perfectly situated for our needs. Parking is free and close to being on site, and there are many restaurants and bistros in walking distance offering curb side pick up, and the bankers and lawyers we needed were close by. This hotel looks either very new or freshly renovated. However, I find that any in-city chain hotel looks pretty much the same no matter the chain that owns it or the locale. Each place needs to have a somewhat glitzy high-end reception desk staffed by someone with an easy smile; some sort of bar or bistro in the lobby, doubling for that morning coffee and complimentary “breakfast” bar of bagels or muffins. Whether its Keene or Peoria, its about the same. Ditto for the rooms: narrow side to side but a long view through the large window overlooking whatever town you’re in. A mini fridge, maybe some sort of coffee machine, shower with unique soap offerings. This Marriott Courtyard checked all those boxes, and the room had a posh men’s club feel with lots and lots of polished dark wood -- so much so that it felt a little oppressive, despite the large window overlooking a parking lot. Maybe it’s more welcoming on bright days. But…. a 2 queen bed room for two travelers, but only one upholstered comfy chair? We had to take turns being comfortable in the chair to watch the big screen TV or to sit on the rolling desk chair. The mini fridge had a tendency to growl most of the night, somewhat like a tiger with indigestion. The State of New Hampshire seems to take Covid precautions very seriously, as does Marriott. Once rooms are sanitized staff affix a sticker bridging the door and the doorframe, so you are assured no one has been wheezing or sneezing in the room after cleaning. Marriott has nixed the complimentary coffee and pre-wrapped muffin as a precaution. But the food coop behind the Marriott has good coffee, great pastry and doesn’t seem overcautious in letting you get them. Overall, a great location, very decent rooms and serious (maybe over serious?) attention to Covid precautions.

Good Morning Wombat27_11, Thank you for the extremely detailed review of our property and for the feedback with you experience as well. I truly appreciate the kind words regarding the condition of the property, but we are actually due for an upgrade in the near future. We do in fact offer complimentary coffee, in individually wrapped cups on the windows side of the Bistro. Again we truly appreciate your feedback and we truly hope to see you again soon!

Let me start with the staff - top notch Heidi and team helped us to block a group of rooms to support our family traveling to bury our family members nearby. Next let’s talk about environment- also well appointed - despite Covid restrictions for gathering the hotel did their best to support guests. It’s location is awesome to walk downtown for a variety of restaurants and shops . I will return and certainly recommend to others .

It's a huge hotel for a small town. It seems to have been something else before becoming a hotel. There's a tiny little pool that you couldn't even turn around in. Not sure why they keep that. There's a tiny fitness room with only one little bench for weights. Yet the hotel is gigantic. We got a room for handicapped people, though we didn't ask for one. It's good to know they have them, but something about the bedding, too, makes it feel like the bed hasn't really been made with fresh sheets. It's oddly spacious. It just doesn't feel like what it is. The one good surprise is that they make breakfast in this open sort of bistro-bar in the lobby. The breakfast is actually good! The waiting staff are very nice. There's a nice little selection. Extra point for that! But for where it is and what it is, overall, it's way over-priced at $159 a night!

Dear Charrro, Thank you for your feedback regarding our property. We appreciate that you feel as though our hotel is gigantic, but it’s only 100 rooms and our rate is in line with all other hotels in the area as well. Roughly 10 years ago the Courtyard was built as a brand new property and has been never been anything but a hotel. Oddly enough an accessible room was what you folks had booked when making your reservation with us and yes the paths of egress are wider to accommodate a wheelchair if needed. Again, thank you for your feedback and have a wonderful weekend!

Stayed here for a week on business and our hotel was chosen and paid for by our business host. It’s a run of the mill business hotel. Rooms are large but characterless. Our bedroom was clean and functional - good tv channels, microwave, coffee machine and hairdryer, iron and fridge. Good parking with easy access to hotel. It’s one of a range of similar chain hotels in Keene. There isn’t a wide range to choose from - all around the same price bracket. Downsides were lack of cupboard storage - too little for 2 people for a week in winter (no hooks for coats, lack of space for boots and all the winter wear required for New England in January). Towels are not big enough to wrap around - and I’m a slim woman. External factors - building work outside meant noise, view of a building site and the room actually vibrating during the worst of the building activity! Extremely noisy heating/AC unit. This meant there was a build up of dust in the room over the week. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient with recommendations for local restaurants and good service. Breakfast was lovely and coffee good. There is a small kiosk type shop with all the essentials you might need if you have forgotten something and a laundry where you can wash and tumble dry clothes. The ice machine was out of order on our floor. Lifts were a bit dirty. Candy wrappers lay on the floor for most of the day. I get the impression that this is an hotel used by visiting workers or contractors in local industrial companies. Functional but not what I would have chosen had I been booking for myself. About 3 star and priced accordingly.

Standard of what you would expect from a Courtyard. We stayed for two nights and didn't spend much time at the hotel, but the room was spacious, parking was free/provided, and we experienced no issues.
