Hotel is clean and modern. Rooms have sliding glass doors that allow you to open and get the afternoon breeze. Room was nice and clean and good size. Bed was comfortable and bathroom in good condition (even had a good shower head). Sink is outside bathroom which was nice for us. Indoor pool and spa was clean and nice, though... More

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.

The room was nice but I really do not like the patio doors on the 1st floor rooms. I am a female traveling by myself so I don't understand why any hotel would put me on the first floor when they have patio doors. Then I was placed in an area facing a dark empty parking lot. Since the hotel... More

Stayed here for four days and truly had a great time. Lobby held an open Restarant / Bar and a lovely court yard to help unwind. Rooms were clean, water pressure fine and bed very comfortable. What else do you want? Starbucks is across from the front door.

We arrived on a Saturday night. The front desk clerk immediately greeted us with a smile and almost knew who should be arriving. We were treated with such nice respect during the whole stay. The hotel offered a wine tasting to which we obliged. The hotel manager came by and chatted for a while. All very nice. The room was... More

I came in late for a two day stay. The manager asked how I was, I told them we had just had a death in the family and things were hectic. I had to leave at the last minute, and when I came back to the room, I have a condolence card signed by every member of the team and... More

I love the consistency I see at Marriott. Its rare that I ever find anything out of place and its rare that I get surprised. This marriott was situated perfectly for the business I had in Hayward, just a 10 minute ride across the hayward bridge. New restaurants in the business park make the meal option very convenient. I'll be... More

This is my second review on this hotel. I have probably stayed here for 7 times till now, till date, nothing came in free - not even a bottle of water from the bar.

Exactly what you would expect from a Courtyard. Associates at the front desk were exceedingly welcoming and helpful. Nice location walking-distance from a CVS pharmacy and Safeway - and only 15 minutes from the airport. Five Guys too!
