Courtyard by Marriott Bogota Airport Review

Posted on April 23, 2018 by in Marriott Hotels

The Courtyard by Marriott Bogota Airport is one of the closest airport hotels in Bogota – you can see the runway just behind the hotel! The hotel is newly-built and, together with other hotels in the area, forms a rather upscale neighborhood near the airport.

Check-in was friendly even though English was an issue but the front desk agent promised to find us a ‘two twin bed’ room with a sofa bed, which would have been perfect. The hotel features no rollaway beds. Eventually, it was found and we walked up to our room. Surprise, surprise, it had no sofa at all.

We went back down and the agent kept searching for the room configuration we wanted. A few minutes later, the Duty Manager introduced himself to us and informed us that such rooms DO NOT EXIST in the whole hotel. Huh? Something seemed amiss as the front desk agent was not just convinced they do but also kept screening the rooms. I understood it may not have been available but the manager insisted these rooms don’t exist. How odd.

However, the room that we got was small but in great shape in this just two-year-old hotel. The beds were fantastic – on the hard side but lovely for my tastes.

The AC was inaudible and strong. The bathroom featured a huge rain shower and a sink that was way above (my memory of) the brand standard.

In fact, it seemed much more like the ‘fancy’ Asian Courtyard by Marriott hotels, like in Seoul.

Despite considerable runway and road noise, the room was mostly completely quiet thanks to the excellent soundproofing. The next door neighbors (there was a connecting door) proved rather annoying sometimes, though.

We got free breakfast and it included a few edible items every morning (there was a good amount of change). I liked the homemade jams and the espresso that was freshly made.

We liked it so much that we stayed at the Courtyard the entire time of our Bogota exploration. It is a good 30+ minutes to the most interesting neighborhoods but Uber charges just $5 each way and we felt it was worth the new hardware that we got at the hotel.

There is a hotel gym with good views on the second floor, which we visited several times.

Oddly enough, the self-service laundry will set you back $20 for ONE wash and dry. In Colombia, you can find a ‘lavanderia’ in many places that will wash and fold a huge pile of clothes for much less than that.

Rates are typically around $80-$100 for this excellent property.
