This property is well located in the Los Altos - Palo Alto area. The rooms were clean and quiet. Free wifi, convenient parking, along with the drinks/snacks in the early evening were much appreciated. While not walking distance to much, the drive to most restaurants, businesses, etc. is not more than 5-10 minutes. Compared with some to the other properties... More

As a Marriott Platinum member, I get to stay in a lot of their properties. This courtyard is definitely on the higher end of the Courtyard spectrum. The rooms are nothing special, but the communal areas are nice. There is a decent sized bar and also a patio area with tables and firepit. The staff are very nice. The gym... More

Nice hotel, close to Stanford. Much to do in the area. The hotel is clean and staff is accommodating. Fire tables in the courtyard are on every night, a warm pool for cool evenings, free donut holes and popcorn, free internet and free parking. Rooms could use new TV's and the furniture is a little worn. Ask for a room... More

Stayed here while visiting daughter on summer internship. Was a solid hotel much like all Courtyards. Close to Stanford as well as Silicon Valley sites. I would stay here again if I needed a convenient location to Palo Alto. On site parking was nice and location is close to many restaurants.

The place was clean and the staff helpful and friendly. The TV n the room had a pix-elated picture. The mini fridge is behind a cabinet door which was annoying. The furniture in the room is rather worn. The whirlpool spa was broken, the main reason we booked this place was for the pool and spa. They have two whirlpools... More

This hotel was great for our visit bringing our daughter to Stanford University for a summer camp. It was close, convenient and very clean with a high ceiling on the first floor. The room was clean. The housekeeping staff was very friendly and affable. Parking was a cinch. It had washing/drying machines. Appetizers at night. We were concerned about a... More

This Hotel is very nice and clean. The bed in the room was so comfy, I didn't want to get up. They have nice dark window shades that don't allow any light in. They have a good selection of TV channel and movie options. They have a great outside area to sit or go into the swimming pool area. The... More

The hotel is located right near a train track crossing - which is required to blow the safety whistle when crossing. So you hear trains all night long. The walls are paper thin woke up hearing the conversation in the room next door. Terrible. Did ask to move my room but they said it is the quietest. The rooms are... More

Jill. My most sincere apology for you not enjoying your stay with us. We strive for excellence in all aspects of our operation. While noise complaints do arise form time to time, I am puzzled about the issue of train noise. The nearest train station is a mile away and not next door like your review would lead some to...

This particular Courtyard by Marriott is really top of the line. The outdoor space is very spa like in the midst of busy El Camino area. The outdoor patio furniture is from Crate and Barrel and really makes the spot. The rooms are much nicer than some Courtyards as well. The happy hour each M-Thurs. is very congenial and there...

Our group of about 120 kids and parents stayed at this beautiful hotel for a tournament. Everything was fantastic! They handled us with ease and hospitality, providing us with great service and good food and drinks. The atmosphere was perfect, outside fire tables and music to enjoy our drinks and snacks. Will come back for sure!
