We stayed near family for the weekend of Christmas (Dec. 22 - 25, 2007) at the Courtyard since it was included in our Travelocity "package" of airfare, hotel and rental car. It's true about the rooms - nicely furnished with hide-a-bed couch, expansive desk area (free wired internet in rooms, wireless in public spaces) with plenty of cabinet space (3 large drawers and one "cabinet" with two shelves. Coffee table, two end tables, plenty of light. The king-sized bed had a great soft coverlet, 5 pillows (an additional sheet set, blanket and pillow for sleeper sofa). Cable tv, clock/radio. Separate water closet/shower - large enough to dry off in without having to go out into the room. Sink/closet area was private from room by design, with full length mirrored closet doors. Bar soap, shampoo (no conditioner or lotion), ironing board, hair dryer, plenty of hangars. Coffee set up - real coffee mugs, but would have liked a "to go" cup for that second cup each morning. Lots of towels. I really liked the room. Lobby was very cool - lots of comfy lounge chairs and even a fire place (in Dallas, TX? Nice touch, though). Outside pool area looked very nice but was closed due to weather, I think. I have been to Dallas before in January and hotel pools were open - maybe it wasn't heated. Would have liked a hot tub - oh, well. Ask for room that opens onto pool area - others have patios that open onto parking lot :(. One VERY BAD thing - note that the very extensively promoted "breakfast" IS NOT FREE!! No where on anything does it say that breakfast is NOT included in the room rate. I believe that this is deceptive advertising and I have contacted Marriott. In fact, it costs $9.95 for a breakfast that you can get at almost all hotels now for FREE!!! was very disappointed!
Unique Quality: Great king sized beds - very comfortable. Lobby very welcoming - would have liked to spend some time there!
Directions: Right off of Highway 75 - close to malls, restaurants, etc.
