There's nothing special or noteworthy about this Courtyard. It is conveniently located nearby the San Francisco International Airport. That's about it. It's not even THAT close to the airport. It's actually sort of nowhere. The food is mediocre, but the rooms are clean and comfortable. The air conditioner was noisy, but not horrible. As I said, it's fine for what... More

Stayed at hotel for convenience to airport. Easy early morning access to SFO was about 15 - 20 min. Hotel has food options immediately across parking lot and shot drive to both fast food and local mall. VISA corporate HQ within 1 mile. Slightly older rooms than other newer/refurbished Courtyards but absolutely clean and nice. Hotel has actual courtyard -... More

Was here for a weekend trip to San Francisco, not so far from SFO airport ( just 15 minutes drive). Rooms were neat, clean & hygienic with a pretty good neighborhood. Only reason for not having 5 star rating from my side is there is no room service for ordering food. There is 24 hrs starbucks in hotel which adds... More

This is the standard Courtyard Marriott that is conveniently located to restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Nice sized room with couch and refrigerator. But at peak times this property shoots up to $270+ a night - at those prices the price to value plummets. Be sure not to get a room by the smoking areas located by all the... More

We stayed here for 6 nights... Loved the location and proximity to shopping and restaurants as well as the easy drive into SF.

This hotel will not wow you. It is older (i.e. Oak doors, gold door handles). However the staff is great. When I last stayed, I had a problem with my room. The hotel was completely booked that night. The next morning, the staff took my luggage and when I got back from the office they had moved my room to... More

Rooms very clean with all the right Courtyard amenities. Comfortable pillows. Wish the duvet would be a bit thicker and fluffier. Great service at the bar and coffee. Nice outdoor patio. Great for a drink after work and conversation. Very comfortable stay! Recommend for business or leisure.

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.
