I have stayed in this hotel after one week in San Francisco. What a pleasant surprise: very good location (not that it is a beautiful location, but a very convenient one), good room, pretty courtyard and nice and friendly service.The a-la carte breakfast in the lobby was also nice. And the price was as it should be, compared with the... More

I know that any stay at a Courtyard will be wonderful, and the Foster City Courtyard is no exception! Rooms were super-clean with the usual Courtyard amenities. The staff was friendly and tremendously helpful. Service at the coffee/snack/bar was appreciated. There are places nearby to walk for coffee and meals. But the true highlight was the actual "courtyard" at this... More

Every time we come to the Peninsula we stay at this Courtyard by Marriott. Love the location, the pool, the on site restaurant, and the rooms are always top notch. We enjoyed our stay this month and look forward to visiting again next year.

I've stayed here several times on business and also brought my family. Every time we've stayed here has been a great trip. It's a reasonable cab ride from SFO, and it's within walking distance of all of my clients.

Nice and close to where I need to be for work not a huge much around without a car. The Bistro will feed you, with their choices, staff very friendly and helpful. I would stay there again due to proximity of work.

Stayed here in April 2014 with my wife and children. Had stayed here for work in the past. Hotel is well located near San Mateo, SFO, and San Mateo bridge. It is in a nice, quiet, business park area of town. Grounds well maintained, a nice "courtyard" inside indeed. The lobby was renovated with the new Courtyard look and services... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel when leaving for and returning from a trip to Puerto Vallarta. Rooms are very quiet and we like the bistro/bar for a light dinner or breakfast without having to search for nearby restaurants. The only downside is that you (or your taxi) have to drive on Bayshore Highway to and from the... More

Dear Cambriariter, Your response has been received and I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to write. I hope that you had a great trip to Puerto Vallarta and back. Bay Area traffic is always a challenge, mainly during peak hours. The taxi drivers should take advantage of carpool lanes with two or more passengers in the car. Once again,... More

I travel to the area once a month. Recently this property was sold out so I stayed at the Marriott in San Mateo - you can read my review of that hotel.

Cannot quite figure where Courtyard is positioned. Have been in some that are quite fancy, others quite bare-bones. This is a comfortable hotel, with good location near Foster City and San Mateo. Short drive to SFO. Good sized fitness center, very helpful front desk personnel. I don't get the lobby bar - bistro idea. Not sure if this is in... More
