We just stayed overnight before flying out from SFO. Friendly, welcoming staff and clean comfortable room. Perfect. Lots of casual food shops nearby. Pieology, a cute pizza place was a short walk from the hotel.

I should have known better than to make a reservation with a Courtyard Marriott! Our past experiences with them have left us disappointed. The rooms are usually clean but so poorly designed as to be a terrible experience. We didn't even have to wait to get to the poorly designed room before the bad experience began. It started at check-in....

The Courtyard Marriott Foster City Hotel has been newly refurbished, third time there on a business trip. The room looks great, clean, has a large bathroom and big TV. Seem less wifi connection, getting online was a breeze. Highly recommend this hotel!

The proximity to the airport is great, and the location of the hotel overall is convenient for a lot of those traveling for business. The rooms are large. Staying on the first floor is incredibly noisy. Good water pressure. Limited hours for the "bistro". The room's furnishing are not pleasing but that doesn't matter to everyone (just me). Free wifi...

We stayed here because my son lives close by. The hotel is located In a business district that may be busier during the week. It was very quiet, close enough to SFO and restaurants. We had an issue with our next door neighbors and the hotel took care of us and moved our room.

Stayed here one night for an overnight quick volleyball tournament at the San Mateo Events Center. Super clean. Super quiet. Super safe. Literally 90 feet from a Starbucks, Jamba Juice, Noah's Bagels, and a Pieology. There in house lounge/restaurant looked good and reasonably priced but we weren't in the mood for that. The fitness center is small but clean. Dumbbells...

My daughter and I stayed here over the weekend when she had a dance competition in the San Mateo area. The hotel itself is located in a fantastic area. Lots of restaurants within walking distance and even some that are only 5 minutes away by car. The staff seemed friendly enough but we really didn't interact with them much, other...
