The Courtyard Lafayette Airport is a standard Marriott Courtyard; if you’ve ever stayed at a Courtyard, you know what to expect here. The property dates from the late 1980s/early 1990s, when Marriott was building Courtyards right and left on basically the same floor plan, so the property does not feature any of the special amenities that some newer, more urban Courtyard locations have. Guestrooms have the standard Courtyard furnishings, with one or two beds, a dresser, arm chair, desk, and sofa with a pull-out bed (in king-size bedrooms only). Overall, the furnishings are nice, but nothing extremely special. Unfortunately the beds have the usual Courtyard thin foam mattress, which I dislike with a passion; the bed alone is one reason I prefer the similarly priced, but somewhat less conveniently located, Hampton Inn Lafayette to the Courtyard. On the plus side, the Courtyard is just a stone’s throw from the Lafayette Regional Airport and a number of the city’s best restaurants and major employers. However, if you’re just passing through the city on Interstate 10 and looking for a convenient place to pull of and spend the night, the Hampton or any of the choices on Evangeline Thruway just south of the Interstates 10 and 49 interchange will be easier to get to.
Like most Marriott Courtyard locations, a small restaurant with a hot breakfast buffet is on the property. The breakfast is not complimentary, but there are two buffet options available. A cold, continental buffet runs about $6, and the full buffet, featuring both hot and cold items, is about $3 to $4 more.
Other features at this Marriott Courtyard are a small meeting room, fitness center, pool, and wi-fi internet access.
