The Courtyard by Marriott Titusville is the newest hotel near Kennedy Space Center. This space-themed hotel is perfect for a visit to KSC. Check out my review of the Courtyard by Marriott Titusville hotel.
Although our stay was short – only one night – we loved everything the hotel had to offer, from the space-themed touches to the pool, and would have gladly extended our stay if we’d been able.
Courtyard by Marriott Titusville – Kennedy Space Center Review
The Guest Room
The 152 room hotel has 130 regular guest rooms, 14 guest suites, and 8 ground-floor walkout rooms, four of which have firepits.
We stayed in a regular guest room. The bedroom itself is pretty simple, your standard hotel room with a bed, desk area, extra seating, and en-suite bathroom.
It’s the little touches of space-themed and cosmic elements that make the room special, though. Murals from the Hubble Space Telescope create the headboard for the bed.
On the desk, there’s a book of photographs from the NASA archives and a pair of binoculars that you can scan the skies with. On the bedside table, there’s an astronaut-shaped projector that plays nebulas on the ceiling (you can take him home with you for an extra charge).
Even the furniture design is sleek like the curves of a space shuttle with a mid-century feel that harkens back to the days of the Space Race.
One of the hotel’s crowning amenities is it’s large outdoor resort-style pool with a children’s section, a hot tub, cabanas, and a pool bar. Nearby is the 24-hour fitness center, complete with plenty of training equipment.
Business travelers can take advantage of the 700-square-foot meeting room. There are also charging stations for electric cars for the technology-driven visitors.
In the lobby, you’ll find the Bistro with a bar and outdoor seating. It serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as Starbucks coffee in the morning.
And up on the roof is the hotel’s premier attraction, The Space Bar (so good it gets its own section down below!).
The Space Bar
From here, you’ll get unobstructed views of the Indian River, Kennedy Space Center, and launch complexes 39A and 39B.
On the menu, you’ll find sandwiches, bowls, small snacks, salads, specialty desserts, and space-inspired cocktails.
To drink, I had the Causeway Cosmo made with vodka, lime juice, cranberry hibiscus, and edible glitter (the pink drink pictured above). Kevin had the Intergalactic Planetary made with lemon vodka, coconut rum, elderflower liqueur, and Blue Curacao (the blue and yellow drink pictured above).
It’s a casual space with high tops, bar seating, and comfy lounge seating. And, boy, can it get windy up there!
Benefits of Staying at the Courtyard by Marriott Titusville
The Courtyard by Marriott Titusville is one of the closest hotels to Kennedy Space Center. It’s only 6.4 miles and a 10 minute drive from the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex.
It has a great view of launches. You can book a room that faces KSC or head up to the Space Bar. Even if you aren’t visiting during a launch, you’ll still love the views across the river.
You get a resort-style pool without the resort prices. I love that the pool has cabanas, a pool bar, and a play area for the kids (or the kids-at-heart).
