Reviewed 21 January 2015

For a Courtyard Marriott, this property was great! The rooms are huge and the staff is very friendly. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and desk areas were spacious. This hotel is only two floors and I ended up in a room on the ground floor, which I wasn't thrilled with. Otherwise I don't have any complaints. The hotel...

This is a very average hotel. Ok rooms, ok greeting and front desk staff. It is also a good bit overpriced. Joe in the restaurant is a rock star. Very personable and went far out of his way to engage with us and make sure that every one of our needs are met and that we had a good time....

The room was quite big and the bathroom too.It's a very good price for this hotel.Moreover,it has the pool inside and the stuff is friendly.I'd say it's worth staying here.Breakfast is not included and you must pay for it which is also a bit pricy.

The hotel is very nice and clean and well located for my purposes. Mostly positive in my review. The only negatives were the elevators were far away and I used the stairs. Only a problem when you are dealing with luggage. The hotel says microwave and safe, which is true, but the microwave and safe for guest's use is located...

We drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco for the short trip of two days. Made the reservation at Marriott in Foster City for one night and never regret it. The hotel is very clean, beds and pillows are very comfortable, quiet place with swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Breakfast is not free but prices are reasonable for eggs, sandwiches, oatmeal,...

Reviewed 18 September 2014

That sums up my review. It's a standard courtyard, but the greatest thing is that there is no charge for parking. This is a rarity around the SFO area, so take advantage. The check-in staff was very friendly as was the lounge staff the next day. I might stay here again given the parking, but other than that it is...

After this US trip - I have decided nver to stay at any Courtyard Marriott but instead a full service hotel. This particular facility was good, rooms okay, service okay, dinner okay, breakfast had very limited choices, and the locations could have been better.

Really like the location (quiet and convenient to many cities and SFO - but beware traffic at rush hour). Room was very clean, bed was only so-so; no AC issues or noise. Lobby and bistro typical. Really friendly and helpful staff. Starbucks and Freebirds World Burrito right next door, so you have even more options than the bistro if you...
