Good hotel

I stayed here for a conference with about 100 other people. Good location, nice interior. Nothing overly spectacular, but overall a very decent place.

Great Location

If you're attending a Giant's baseball game, this hotel is in a perfect location. It's approximately half a mile away from the gates, We did an overnight trip, valeted our car and walked everywhere. If you're looking to go to more areas, public transportations access is easy to get. When I purchased my room, I bought valet with it for $20- WELL worth it because otherwise it's 47 plus taxes/fees! Staff was nice. Annoyances: there was no DVD player in the room, the rental movies were very overpriced. I understand water conservation in a large city, but i felt it was wasteful that I needed to flush the toilet x2-3 for it to do it's job. Otherwise, I enjoyed my stay.

Nice, basic, family friendly

standard marriot quality - close to downtown/financial district, a bit of a hike from North Beach or Haight/Asbury and nightlife.

It was great!

The location of the hotel is great as it is near all forms of public transportation. Restaurants are near by and it's walking distance to Union Square and Chinatown. Definitely a good find to stay at!

Frisco on New Years

I was in Fisco to attend two rock and roll concerts over new years '09-'10. A freind of mine from the midwest enjoyed our stay at the Courtyard. It was convenient to stay here - just a few blocks from the mass transit systems on Market street, and we had no problems getting around the city. This location was nice and quiet and met our needs. I'd stay here again for similar purposes.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Bike ride across the golden gate bridge and go into Sausalito. Nice ride with just a few up hill climbs to conquer.
