The Courtyard by Marriott (formerly Decatur’s Holiday Inn) has been open for a week and I finally got the chance to explore it today. Do you remember when I posted the construction photos (scroll back a few posts)? I wrote that the place was already looking better, well now it looks amazing. These photos don’t really do it justice. I suggest stopping by and seeing if for yourself. A group of us just walked over today and one of the hotel employees was nice enough to give us a tour.
Much brighter, sleeker and overall better use of space than the Holiday Inn. Even with the atrium-look, it has a cozy feel. It feels almost like you’re in your living room – if your living room had been recently renovated with contemporary touches like shiny surfaces, dark wood, and modern light fixtures.
We toured one king bedroom and one with two queens.
So there you have it. A (almost) brand spanking new hotel! I live about 5 minutes away from the hotel and I’m already trying to think of a excuse to stay here. Or maybe the next time I have guests come into town, I’ll have them stay at my place and I’ll book a room at the Courtyard.
