Wonderful place

Courtyard Marriot was an excellent place. I was not expecting much for a 3 star hotel but the place exceeded my expectations for a 3 star. I will definitely return to this place. It was very clean, quiet, great location, and very friendly staff. I highly recommend this hotel to travellers. Parking was expensive though at almost 50$/night but I think that's the way it is everywhere in San Francisco. Our tour bus guide mentioned that San Francisco's number one source of income is parking!!!

Very nice place for S.F. one nighter!

This was our treat before the B2B race. Easy walking distance. Parking rates crazy ($45 approx.), nice, helpful staff, clean room. A microwave and small refrigerator would enhance the experience. Although comparable, the one night price is pretty stiff ($309). Great treat for the "once in a while"!

Good choice for kids.

Good location to the Ferry Building, trolly and museums. Quiet and out of the way of all the high traffic tourist areas.

Convenience, class and cleanliness

Very clean and comfortable room. Didn't use the exercise room or pool unfortunately, just too busy. All hotel staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet was overpriced, hair found in the eggs and we only went one time for both reasons.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

Go to the Cinderella Authentic Russian bakery on Balboa near G.G. Park for delicious Pirohki and desserts at a reasonable price; perfect choice for a picnic in the park. Also don't miss the Olympic Flame for breakfast all day every day, NO waiting and the prices and food are great(on Geary near Jones).

Decent location

We went to SF for New Years fireworks so we didn't spend much time in the hotel. Upsides are that it is close to nice places to visit like SFMOMA. The wired internet was free for a day, there is no wireless, but there is a Starbucks downstairs that has wifi.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you don't need in/out privileges of hotel parking, don't park there. Instead go to the Moscone Center parking garage on 3rd street. It's only $24 for 24 hours vs. $44 for the hotel.

Short Stay - 3 nights

Overall it was nice. Just minor stuff which the hotel can definitely fix them. Within 10 minutes walk to the main street (Market Street) and public transport. The street may be too quiet during weekend or night (afer 9:00 pm) because the hotel is within business district.
