3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Got a room facing the freeway despite asking for a quiet room away from it. Windows and fan noise were enough to dampen that. Beds were very comfortable. No frig (the lower end Marriotts all have them). Pool and jacuzzi area needed cleaning and update...it was dated and in need of some maintenance and improved lighting. Laundry was decent. Entrance...

For a middle of the range hotel stay, the Courtyards are coming along in leaps and bounds! This is one that is ahead of the budget for room remodels and I love the comfort and stylish design! All that good stuff said on the inside, the windows are small and utterly FILTHY! Some outdoor maintenance is a must - this... More

Fairly new Courtyard and pretty much what you would expect form this chain. Staff pleasant. Bistro efficient but again have to pay for it even as a Marriott Gold member. Wi Fi was free as a Gold Member and was efficient. Really dislike hotels that charge car parking to guests. Its a trick to scam a captive audience what else... More

Thank you for staying with us and for the nice comments and score regarding our service. I am sorry that you view our $9 parking charge as a trick or a scam. It appears you were not aware of it before arriving, but we make that information available as best we can. The parking charge is noted in the Summary... More

I often have business in San Francisco and when I do, I stay at this hotel. I’ve stayed at the Courtyard Marriott on 6 visits already. My favorite thing is that it is quiet. In all the times we’ve stayed there the hotel has been full, but I’ve never heard any of the people in the rooms next door. I... More

We arrived at 4:00 a.m. exhausted from our drive and was met with a sign at the front entrance, which read, "Sold Out." No worries, I thought, we had reserved our room. Thanks to the gentleman on duty, I believe his name is Ryan, he quickly offered us a seat, water and re-reserved us a room because the system automatically... More

Stayed here in May, was provided a room facing the bay with a view of the bay bridge and the San Francisco skyline. Stunning views. Hotel was very clean, well run, and the staff were helpful and quick with all requests. The Bistro was especially good, hot food and the coffee was fresh and tasty. Would highly recommend this hotel... More

This is a really nice Courtyard - the best I have been too. I am Hilton Platinum and Marriott Gold - and I get treated nicer here. They are just really happy to greet you and make sure you get the room you want. The staff is top shelf and despite not using the restaurants provided quickly and with cheer... More

My stay at the Courtyard Marriot Emeryville was just OKAY. The room was nice & clean and the bed was pretty comfortable. I found it unusual that there was no microwave or refrigerator in the room. Even the most basic rooms should have one or the other, if not both. They have Starbucks coffee in the mornings which is pretty... More

Thank you, Kristal, for the feedback on your stay. It sounds like you appreciated our efforts to keep the hotel very clean and that you had a good night's rest. I'm sorry that you did not get a room with a refrigerator, although it seems it was more of an expectation than a request that wasn't met. We are looking... More

This hotel is exceptional, clean, welcoming. I'm sure many of you have stayed here as overnight travelers. The staff is extremely welcoming, professional. The rooms are great. Complimentary coffee before the breakfast bar opens. Nice stay.

Beautiful hotel just over the bridge from San Francisco. Room was very clean and roomy. Pool and spa also very clean. Front desk people were all friendly, efficient and helpful. Saved over $150 in parking fees by switching from a downtown location. Shops and a movie theater are a short walk away. Highly recommended!
