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!

The challenge with being part of a chain is that you have to remain consistent. This is especially true with the Courtyard brand, where you can pretty much wake up in a room in a Courtyard in Chicago or Atlanta and have it feel very similar, if not the same. The rooms at this Courtyard are very much the typical... More

We made our reservation at the Marriott a few weeks ago and were only staying one night for a wedding. We needed to check in early and thankfully they let us in early to get ready. The room was clean, fresh, comfortable and everything we needed. I slept so well in their bed with all those pillows. I can always... More

Desk staff are very helpful. One man even printed out his recommended hiking trails for me and my coworkers to take. My room was always clean, and the bed was so comfortable. Food from the bistro is good. They serve Starbucks coffee, and have it available most of the day (after breakfast, which is not free) in air-pots. A nice... More

Hotel was very convenient for sightseeing, shopping and restaurants. The hotel has a convenient bar and bistro for breakfast. Starbucks coffee was a nice added feature. Efficient and friendly staff. Parking garage also a bonus.

Not your typical Courtyard by any means. Latest upgrades throughout are exceptionally well-done. Staff always pleasant & helpful. Nice variety of free munchies at happy hour. Computer center right off Lobby very convenient . Location & parking very convenient to everything. Have stayed here 2-3 times per year for past 10 years & am never disappointed.
