The hotel is very nice and clean and well located for my purposes. Mostly positive in my review. The only negatives were the elevators were far away and I used the stairs. Only a problem when you are dealing with luggage. The hotel says microwave and safe, which is true, but the microwave and safe for guest's use is located... More

We drove from Los Angeles to San Francisco for the short trip of two days. Made the reservation at Marriott in Foster City for one night and never regret it. The hotel is very clean, beds and pillows are very comfortable, quiet place with swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Breakfast is not free but prices are reasonable for eggs, sandwiches, oatmeal,... More

That sums up my review. It's a standard courtyard, but the greatest thing is that there is no charge for parking. This is a rarity around the SFO area, so take advantage. The check-in staff was very friendly as was the lounge staff the next day. I might stay here again given the parking, but other than that it is... More

After this US trip - I have decided nver to stay at any Courtyard Marriott but instead a full service hotel. This particular facility was good, rooms okay, service okay, dinner okay, breakfast had very limited choices, and the locations could have been better. The hotel can be recommended any one with a very busy schedule. Not for one who... More

Really like the location (quiet and convenient to many cities and SFO - but beware traffic at rush hour). Room was very clean, bed was only so-so; no AC issues or noise. Lobby and bistro typical. Really friendly and helpful staff. Starbucks and Freebirds World Burrito right next door, so you have even more options than the bistro if you... More

This is a completely standard Courtyard, except that it's a newer building than average which helps. The room, bed, and bathroom were all fine. I've never eaten dinner at a Courtyard before; the food (some sort of frozen flatbread pizza) was mediocre, but it was cheap. Ditto for the cocktail. If you have to be in Foster City it's about...

Enjoyed my stay there since it was close to the airport and offered free parking. Driving to san Francisco wasn't a big deal under low traffic conditions (approx. 20min) but if you get stuck in traffic... you just don't want to know. Apart from that, it is convenient if you intend to visit Santa Cruz and generally the area to... More

Hotels in this area seem to be scarce and prices are incredibly high. Although the laws of supply and demand dictate that, hotels that charge $200+ a night should still be obliged to be really good. I was not impressed with this courtyard. It felt old, paper thin walls, ceilings and floors, and the worst part is the bed. The... More
