We stayed at the Courtyard Avondale/West Phoenix in May 2008. Let me start with the negatives...this being a brand new hotel, the beds were very uncomfortable compared to the other Courtyard's we have stayed at. Not sure what the difference was, but I didn't like the new beds. NOW, let's get to the positives. The staff were AWESOME. Polite, friendly, inviting, and HELPFUL. You couldn't ask for more from hotel staff including housekeeping and front desk staff. This is conveniently located next to I-10 with easy access to all of Phoenix and surrounding areas. This new Courtyard design is very functional. For our 8 day stay it was just like being at home with all of the closet space, and couch and chair. Besides the bed, no complaints. We have already booked our next stay at this hotel.
