    As the Courtyard is the only halfway decent hotel in Hamilton, the hotel block for our wedding was set up with them. If any other hotel would have been available, I would have cancelled the block and sent our guest elsewhere. Nine months out from the wedding, Marriott repeatedly ... View more repeatedly told guests the hotel (and block) were completely booked. Knowing this wasn't the case since our save the dates hadn't even gone out yet, I called and tried to make my own reservation. I too was told the hotel (and block) were booked. When I questioned their statements, I was told once again no rooms were available. Finally I was given a room but told that only the rooms in my block were available. Shockingly, as it got closer, more rooms became available. However as it got closer and closer to the wedding, guests were frequently told no rooms were available. I find this especially hard to believe given that my father in law was able to reserve a room that same day. The rooms are nice and decorated well, but SMALL. My parents reserved a suite where we got ready. Four of us stayed there the night before the wedding. We had been told the room slept 4, but the pullout bed is definitely a twin. If you have more than 3 people, you'll want to reserve a second room. The staff wasn't all that friendly either. Others in the bridal party commented how they did everything they were supposed to do and said the correct things, but nothing seemed genuine. However, the hotel did email all guests to let them know of street closures the weekend of the wedding and did their best to ensure that only guests / those with guests were parking in the lot. All in all, Courtyard served its function and everyone coming to the wedding from out of town had a place to stay. But the hotel block and the hotel's refusal to allow guests to reserve rooms turned out to be a larger headache than I expected.
