Stayed in the 2 bedroom suite and loved the space, cleanliness and that it was pet friendly for our labradoodle The complimentary breakfast was a nice treat The staff was sweet & helpful during any communication

The bed I slept in was so amazingly comfortable I actually purchased the same model after returning home We typically only stay at Marriott brand hotels, but after one stay here that won’t be our thought process going forward Thank you for exceeding our expectations during our stay

David Johnson

This is the best place to stay in the Utica area The employees are the absolute friendliest people From the front desk to the maid service to the breakfast room So refreshing to feel like they are really glad you are there

The breakfast food was delicious and they even offer an evening meal The rooms are comfy and spacious Very clean even during renovations Highly recommended!!!!

Destiny Edwards

We were placed in the wrong room, with our three young kids, after a 14 hour drive We didn’t have the energy then to really press about what had happened The next morning Mildreth was very responsive, tried all she could, and finally was able to move us to a larger room – still not the one we had booked & paid for

We reached out via email to the GM and he gave me a call He was very attentive, explained how the change had happened and apologized sincerely for the mistake They were very gracious and made it right The customer service was impeccable as soon as he was aware there had been a mistake It saved the trip for our family and we are very grateful

Comfortable place to stay Very nice and helpful staff Short stay looks great

Long stay is below average due to cleaning once a week Free gym and pool is great, even if they are not very big, usefull enough for the basics Building is kind of old If you like modern style hotels this is not your place Breakfast is free but it is really bad and same everyday 4/jul/2022

Allena Williams

I give this place 4 for 3 reasons 1 The breakfast WAS NOT tasty

Unfortunately I had to throw it away 2 There was an open soap and used shampoo bottle in the bathroom 3 My husband and I woke up with out backs hurting from the bed When we informed the attendant about the bed she did apologize and stated they are about to remodel the hotel She did offer us something free from the snack station for the I convience

I enjoy working in this environment The staff and the guest are just everything and it smells so good when you walk in the doors Its a great and quite place to come and relax

Drew Montgomery

Room 243 is completely infested with ants and flying ants Im disappointed of the fact out of all rooms, they put me in this particular room that’s infested I feel like I’ve been setup

I couldn’t even sleep at night with them flying around And I used my loyalty points to only stay for 2 nights and this is the kind of service I get for being an elite member customer I should get a refund but I know they’re too stingy to do that I won’t be coming back here again

Aaron Blair

Stayed here for 3 nights I really liked almost everything about this hotel It was clean and quiet and the room was spacious

As a big guy I appreciated the nice desk chair that didn’t pinch my legs The walk-in shower was easy to use and the water pressure and temperature was very pleasant The desk area is really well put together and very usable for working, I travel with 2 laptops and an external monitor and was very easily able to set them all up in a way that was productiveStaff was friendly and helpfulThe only reason wasn’t 100% happy with this hotel was that the mattress was far too firm for my liking I woke up with a backache every day It’s not that the bed is -bad- so I’m not rating them lower because of it, its a fine quality mattress it’s just far too firm for me who is used to a softer bed, so if you like firmer mattresses this is most likely the hotel for you

Steve Joerger

The hotel is a 7-minute drive to the airport There are a few restaurants nearby but nothing within walking distance The hotel is newer in design and has an excellent breakfast in the morning as well as the evening happy hour

The staff was kind and got me checked in quickly The room was clean and had a junior suite setup along with a full kitchen and no separate rooms The bed was comfortable as were the linens The bathroom was clean as well with a shower tub comboOther Amenities:- Free WIFI- Indoor pool and spa (Closed for maintenance)- Fitness Room- Laundry room- Pullout couch- Full Kitchen- Outdoor grills- Evening happy hour- Hot breakfast (Eggs, sausage, waffles, oatmeal and cereals)

David Couch

I’m a Hilton Guy, very nice establishment Hotel Desk clerk, Mitchel, was very pleasant, courteous, and accommodating Rooms were very clean and comfortable

Hotel is energy-conservative, so rooms are hot (during warm months) when you first arrive but cool off in a short time once the electric is enabled by a hotel card Breakfast was plentiful, hot, and good; I love biscuits and gravy Todays meat I passed up I prefer pork over turkey sausage Can’t win all of the time Definitely, visit this hotel again if work brings me out this way again

The Courtyard was very clean and three people were very nice and helpful I had messed up my reservations and they helped me out fixing them I stayed 5 days on business

The room was a king room and was clean Everything was in it’s place I had enough towels and on my third day house keeping came in and cleaned up around my luggage and clothes I had laid out They even cleaned around my toiletries It was awesome to see The bed was comfortable and it had a pretty good shower The TV options are good as well The only thing I can say as a negative is the dining was still closed, they said they were opening it up again the week after my stay When I return I will stay at the Courtyard by Marriott in Troy again

Amber Bowen

I’ve never left a review for a hotel but I just had to I just stayed here for the first time and my stay was GREAT No complaints! Room was super big , and CLEAN

The staff was so FRIENDLY! i left my bathing suite in the room and the lady caught me before pulling off when I got back upstairs the housekeeper had it bagged up for me already! Pool area was clean as well and so as the fitness center! 9/10 , only because I was looking forward to the fire pit being lit I’ll be back

Shannel D. K.

As a travel agent you tend to do a bit of hotel hopping, and I was very pleased with this one as well Wishing I could have stayed a bit longer Loved my room with the balcony and sitting area

I wanted to venture out and sit in the common area around that fire place 😭😭 it looked so relaxing However, no worries I will get to it sooner rather than later Thank you

Jamie R

Our softball team (11 families) just stayed at this hotel for five nights for a softball tournament The hotel was clean, quick to answer any of our questions and gave us great service The Courtyard was perfect for our families to gather and spend time between games

The landscaping was very pretty and it was designed for socializing It was a huge part of making the experience really enjoyable for everyone Overall, amazing experience and about one of the best hotels I’ve ever been to for a group outing Every hotel should have a courtyard!

Dealraider Sales

Courtyard is usually a predictable and above average brand by Marriott However, this property is well below average First it’s not in a great area

Second, the building itself is run down on the inside – the front desk told me they were supposed to get a refurbishment in 2020 but still don’t have one planned, it’s well overdueWhat made it really bad was the walls were paper thin and I could hear the conversation next to me, and every door opening and closing – like an old motel The bed was completely worn out, sinking far low with poor pillowsI asked to check out early given the condition and bad sleep experience and at least was allowed to do thatMarriott needs to refurbish this hotel completely

Carol Bishop

So far it’s good, not great, I’ve been to better Marriott properties No microwave in the room and one down the hall is not cool, it’s ok for 2-3 nights but longer I’d want more, fitness room is great The building is huge! Needs more elevators and the luggage carts are too small ! They take 1-3 bags the old standup ones took6-9 with a hanger for clothes

Needs improvement ,a C+

I stayed in this hotel many times before Usually when the manager is working, everything seems to be alright as she is much more accommodatingThis time my experience was not so great

I came for a business stay The moment I entered the room, there was an odd smell I thought positive and said it’s probably air freshenerThe shower had just barely any pressure, I’m not sure if they’re trying to save on bills but this is not what I expectedThe sink in the room needs attention, the handle slowly turns off the waterSome guests were having a ball right outside the hotel and you can hear them playing music, talking, and laughing pass midnight (12am) The hotel staff did not do anything about itFinally I wanted to leave a day early and asked if I could have a late checkout, the front desk lady said no because the rooms are booked She asked me to check out at 11:00am and not even a minute later

D Royal

I rarely leave reviews at businesses, but this one, everyone and everything across the board was excellent! Very clean establishment, good ac/heat units, nice beds, hot breakfast (self prepare), gym, shower is good and hot, Buddy’s Pizza is NEXT DOOR plus other eateries are very close by, I could go on and on Best hotel for my needs, I will highly recommend!

Zaneta McCatty

Customer service was great from beginning to end The rooms were dated and just didn’t display the cleanliness we’d hope for The ottoman definitely looks like someone had a happy ending, this was here when we entered

The material coming from the bottom of the couch may seem small to se but to me it’s avoiding a charge for something you didn’t do The heat didn’t work properly unless it was blasting The only noise you could hear was a family having a good time to what sounded like spades (you could only hear them when walking past their room)all I know is they had a good time and he made his books 😂 We had a bit of a snafu and forgot something and again customer service was spot on We were called back about a coat they found in one of the rooms, so like a good mom oi retrieved it only to find out it was not one of the kiddos that joined us but that they found that coat already in the room 😳🤔 How if the rooms are to be cleaned thoroughly after a guests checks out? Aha! It wasn’t cleaned properly which is how a coat was still in there unless it was the workers who had a “happy ending” 🤷🏽‍♀️

Jen Tanner-leif

Stayed here for two weeks to work I enjoyed it, small kitchen, living room and a little desk for me to work at I love the bedroom is separated from the rest of room, helps keep my mind on track

Small things they can upgrade but room is clean and bed is comfortable Employees are all extremely nice and helpful Basketball court, you can check out a basketball and 24hr gym Great for those that work odd hours I will definitely stay here again


Had a two bedroom suite and loved that each room had its own bathroom and a large living room Kitchen was kinda small and the whole place definitely could use some upgrades It could have been a tad bit cleaner and there were a few broken items but mostly from it being older is probably why

It was definitely comfortable and worth the price Was also given a late check out with no problem because of a snow storm And front desk staff was friendly and brought requested items quickly Would definitely stay again

C Craig

The location to my work site and having a kitchen is what drew me to this hotel I was in town for work and have specific dietary needs For this reason, this was the most attractive option

The pictures looked decent and the kitchen served its purpose, but that’s allThe room was dingy to start with There was dust behind furniture, trash under the bed, and cobwebs in the corners One of the closet doors was off the hinges and just sitting against the closet The carpet needs to be deep cleaned or replaced The Furniture also had stains Also, the stove was still greasy from a previous guests cooking endeavors Makes me wonder if my sheets were even fresh 🤔I stayed for 5 days so my trash filled up I was told to just set the bag outside my door for pickup It stayed there almost 2 days No extra trash bags were in the room and in order to get one, as well as fresh towels, I had to pick them up from the front desk myself When i asked them about the room cleaning schedule, they told me they only clean occupied rooms every 7 days That would have been nice to know when I checked inI checked out on a Friday and thought I may have left something behind I called over 24 hours later to ask if anything was found in the room and was told they’d call me back after they cleaned it I called again the next day and they still hadn’t cleaned the room Either this hotel is severely understaffed or they aren’t very clean Either way I don’t think I’ll be choosing them again

We came here for a wedding which was really nicely hosted The rooms were simple and clean and the front desk accommodated us fairly well and quickly I wish they had someone to help us with our bags when we arrived past midnight from a 6 hour road trip tho, or a vallet option

There were also a few things I would have expected in the room like a lock safe, or carpeted floors in the room Overall it was not bad, still would generally recommend Marriott to anyone

Andres Ivanov

Sub-par hotelExpensive and not worth itHotel is old and outdated

Bathroom does not have ventilation, TV doesn’t offer streaming from phone yet that TV model has that capabilityBreakfast is an extra 20$ per person besides 200$ a night roomBed and pillows are however the WORSTWe took King size bed room and I’ve never seen that BAD quality mattress and pillowsI couldn’t sleep all night and pillows are so soft and empty that you fall flat right onto wooden mattressDo yourself a favour if you stay here and buy a pillow at dollar storeThe cherry on top is that hot water pool was closed and nothing mentions thatShould be downgraded to a 2 star hotel

Bruce Bradley

I’m going to get the young lady’s name but she was at the front desk to check us in and she was simply superb she was the definition of customer service a far cry from the Marriott downtown in Detroit she was very good she even offered me Starbucks coffee she got us checked in quick fast and in a hurry and I haven’t been pleased with hotel service which I’ll use frequently in a long long time

Great place to stay Only thing that made me sad was no breakfast sandwiches with meat The egg and cheese was still good though Most definitely would recommend!

Tonia Hack

I’ve stayed here twice now, each room has been unique & lovely! The renovations included keeping the original bathroom tile that elevates the vintage hotel experience I keep forgetting to take pics of the rooms before I check out, but the outside is a great indicator of the vibes this place gives off Staff are always very nice & accommodating, & your key (cards available but the remote app key is better) gets you discounts at a couple places

And you can’t beat walking distance from downtown Royal Oak 😎 will stay here any chance I can!

Angela Painter

This place has the perfect vibe throughout !!! From the front lobby with free suckers in a huge bowl and an excellent selection of snacks to the community chill room with the arcade game Outside is a fantastic chill spot with fire pits, picnic tables and baggo/corn hole! The room was perfect! Clean and decorated awesomely fun! Bed was comfy! AC worked great! The staff was super friendly and professional ! Just genuinely nice people The place is very inviting and chill! Definitely going to be back for another long weekend! Absolutely recommend if you are looking for a relaxing atmosphere to stay while in Royal Oak !


This place completely changed my perception of Michigan! I had prior arrangements with multiple other hosts before but boyfriend found this place The area was amazing, the staff made us feel so welcomed and the rooms were comfortable, clean and the decor was cute All in all, this hotel and my stay is my reasoning for wanting to revisit Michigan

I think it’s safe to say this is where I’ll be looking for my hotel accommodations every time

This was one of the nicest hotels I have visited in a long time Glass elevator rooms that are up to date with great amenities A pool, workout room, brunch style breakfast in the morning where they have a chef making omelets custom however you want them

The layout was very unique, all floors could be seen from the main level and from the room you can walk out and view the entire first floor Nice bar and restaurant as well The staff does an excellent job accommodating the needs of guest

The hotel was really cool The elevators was a bit under maintained And my room and a couple of others room I walked into weren’t very detailed clean

Still hair in the shower and dirty streaks on the shower door and drainstill used soap in there The carpet wasn’t swept very welltook my boots off and socks and it was like walking on crumbs The tables still had cup marks on them and there was layers of dust on the TV stand and end tables by bed This wasn’t just one room This was five different rooms from level 8 to level 4 Detailed Cleaning would go a long wayStaff was super helpful and FriendlyAlso the rooms had a very musky smell to them almost like damp basement smell TV in the bedroom said would turn on but had zero TV TV In the couch area had channels UT the screen was very blurryNice hotel but for as nice as it comes off to be could be alot cleaner and smell a bit better in the roomsI’d give it 5 stars if it was cleanerHad food it was lasagna it was still frozen in the middle Had a sweet little older lady greeting and picking up our plates” ALL BY HERSELF “! with a full dining room while others young men were on their phones I mentioned it to the young men and they just blew me off Not very respectful to there older lady Co worker That lady I didn’t catch her name wish I didbut she was working her butt off with an amazing attitude I let those other lazy boys go and hire 3 of herThose few things change the next time we stay there and I’ll give it a better review Guess we’ll see if customers advice and reviews matter


Embassy Suites is normally my favorite hotel but this trip is quite disappointing We paid for an expensive room that was marketed as nicer than it was Not a huge deal, its still a fine room, but there’s more issues

Our first room was a mess… when we entered all the drawers were open, the microwave was open and had pieces missing, there were glass cups everywhere on the floor, it was ridiculous So we switched rooms to the same type of room on a new floor This room was much better, but there were some random issues like the toilet paper holder being broken and the shower door handle being extremely loose Then, when we were preparing the sofa bed, there were no sheets because instead of being washed and put away for us to put on the bed, they were never taken off from the previous use and the top sheet was stuffed under the coach cushions The dirty sheet was also visibly dirty, like stains all over kind of dirty, it was gross Also, the blanket that goes with it had some stains on it that had a crusty texture, even though it was in the plastic bag seemingly cleaned unlike the sheets (i guess it wasn’t cleaned though, at least not enough because it was gross) We got new sheets and a new blanket, but the new blanket had bleach stains all over it and had a towel-texture instead of a soft texture We stayed at a different Hilton hotel last night that was much cheaper and it was the same blanket except theirs was actually soft On top of that, general issues like the shower sucks (no shelves or ledges to set products on, no ledge to shave, etc) and the fact that on weekdays breakfast ends at 9am (10am on weekends), which is way too early 10am is okay but 9 is not reasonable Im just very disappointed with our stay and the staff was barely helpful It seems to be working out alright now but it was an extremely stressful first day and the room is not as good as it should be considering the very high price The lobby was also kind of a mess, I understand that they are doing construction so its not a big deal but still The biggest problem with the lobby was the elevators… this may just be my irrational fears but I did not like how one of the elevators was very squeaky and rattled as we went up and down I’m sure it’s still safe but it did not make me feel very secure, it could probabaly use some maintenance so that should have already happened…
