Excellent location for our business trip. Walking distance to local eateries and while on the SFO flight path (or near) we did not hear any planes flying by. Free parking helps a lot too! One of us worked in the room while the other attended business meetings. Only downside is they don't take pets.

We recently stayed at this hotel for a volleyball tournament that was very close by in San Ramon at the fair grounds. I did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised at how nice and inviting the hotel lobby was. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We ate a late night meal at the little bistro in... More

This is an excellent hotel if you can get it for the right price. I've stayed here twice. The first time, I booked using Priceline and got a deluxe extra sized room for $99. The 2nd time I booked online and ended up paying twice as much for a smaller room. Price depends on when you stay

I stayed at this hotel as it was closest to my business destination and am still reeling from the room charge. When the dust had settled I paid $306.50 for one night. Nice room, coffee maker and adequate. No free breakfast only a lobby bistro. Friendly staff but they would have to have carried me to my room, tucked me... More

Checked into the hotel, it was efficient and cafe / bar was right across the reception. The first impression was comfortable. Took a fairly long walk to the room on the 2nd floor. The room was spacious, clean and filled with basic amenities. King size bed was firmed and comfortable. Room has a sofa, a working table and a TV.... More

Courtyard Foster City proved to be a really good choice for us. With a Bar Mitzvah in Marin, Theater in Berkeley, a couple of meals with friends in the City, Redwood hiking in Half Moon Bay and 2 business meetings in Silicon Valley, we really needed a centrally located place. As long as we avoided traveling during rush hour (which... More

This was our second visit, and found the area developed with walkable shops and eateries. Pieology, Whole Foods, Peets. What we like about Courtyards is the parking availability close to our rooms. For business, we have quite a bit of luggage. We prefer ground level rooms, and parking is always available. Our morning coffees at Peets; walking to Pieology was... More

Went here after leaving another hotel that was a dump. So we just dropped in and we were so glad. Modern, clean,friendly staff. Room was very nice. Highly recommend. There is a lot to choose from in the area and as we found out some not good at all. Plus it's close to everything.

Clean room and facilities with friendly and helpful staff. Our vacation plans were altered unexpectedly and the staff were able to get us checked-in several hours early. Starbucks in the lobby was nice.
