This hotel is very nice, the staff are exceptional, rooms are very modern and comfortable. The location is perfect for a stopover, great food and shopping within walking distance. The only downside was that the pool was dirty, and unattractive so we did not use it.

Ideal if you plan to catch a plane, about 5 minutes to the airport. The rooms are very good, well kept and comfortable. The fridge is not stocked and you do have to pay for the bottled water in your room but the tap water is drinkable so no need to resort to bottled. Gymnasium is in perfect condition, appears...

We stayed here for one night after arriving in San Jose. The hotel is new, clean, and comfortable. They also have a shuttle from the airport that runs every 15 minutes or so. Wait across the street from where the taxis are parked to get picked up. The battery in the lock on our door died while we were there... More

This hotel is so conveniently located next to the San Jose Airport, literally 5 minutes away. They also offer a free shuttle to the airport. There are restaurants right across the parking lot with a variety of food, even a Hooters (but when in Costa Rica, why eat at Hooters?). There's a Walmart next door. If you want to bring... More

Great modern Courtyard Marriott - clean rooms with big bathrooms, large living area and a mini-fridge / coffee station. Free shuttle to and from the airport is such a great service since airport is less than 5 minutes (highway) - by the way, please tip these shuttle drivers as you would a cab driver. Since it caters to airport guests,... More

It's only a few minutes drive from the airport and the free shuttle means it's no hassle at all. Staff are efficient and professional and the place has good facilities, though the pool is tiny. The bland bar/restaurant lacks character but there is a good selection of Latin American restaurants just opposite the hotel. Rooms are pretty standard but clean,... More
