clean hotel with convenient location

This Marriott was nice but I wouldn't recommend it if you ate vacationing in the area. The room was clean and the staff were friendly but the lay out was poor and the view was non existent. The outside courtyard was beautiful but you couldn't get to the pool from it. There is only one elevator so getting luggage to the other side of the hotel was a hassle. If you are traveling for business this location would be nice but not if you are trying to enjoy the bay area.

Perfect hotel, but far from San Fran

The staff was extremely helpful. Probably the friendliest staff I have met. The food was on par with a breakfast restaurant. The French toast was really good. My only issue was that I didn't realize how far from San Fran we were. We took the Caltrain and it's an hour on the train each way.

Mixed Bag

Location is very good ! Bed is one of the worst I've slept in. TOO soft ! Starbucks across the street. Clean except for one bath towel.which was stained and hanging. Lobby is well arranged and friendly with food counter.

Perfect hotel for a weekend SFO visit

Stayed here with family for a quick SFO visit over a weekend. Just stayed for a night - the only thing I missed was there was no free breakfast. The hotel did have a cafe with breakfast options. There is also a Starbucks and JambaJuice right opposite to the hotel. The location and price trade-off is very good given the 30 min drive to downtown SFO but without the high price of hotels in SFO. Will stay here again.

Very Nice

Very nice, courtyard was pretty. Decor was modern. I think breakfast should be complementary at the price and that would of been better. The indoor pool and spa is nice do to the weather.

Convenience & Value

We enjoyed staying at the Courtyard. It has a renovated lobby and very friendly staff. Our room was very comfortable, included HBO, a nice tv, and couch. Did not include breakfast, but parking was free. Great for those who need a quick overnight convenient to the airport.

Too loud to sleep.

Stayed here the night before I had to take an 8 hour exam so that I would have to drive an hour from my house in the morning. Looking back now I should have just stayed home. There waste music playing all night. It was the just the bass that traveled into my room so i couldn't tell where it was coming from and earplugs wouldn't have helped. I tried calling the front desk on four separate occasions only to have them answer once. I told them about the problem and they said they would send someone. The music still played into the night and no one was answering the front desk phone. I finally cost sick of the the noise and found where it was coming from and banged on the door myself at 2am. So much for getting a good nights sleep. Should have staying in a cheaper hotel and I probably would have gotten a better nights sleep. Also the floor had big stains on it and there was somebody else's hair on the blankets. Would not stay here again.
