I like this Marriott Courtyard for its location and the long list of amenities that are included in the price. But first the price - ouch! It's not that the Marriott is over priced it's the entire Palo Alto area is over priced. It's the whole Silicon Valley thing. That said, the rooms are large, beds comfortable, wifi free, gym...

I've stayed in lots of Courtyard hotels. This is one of my favorite. It's only a few miles from the Stanford area. Rooms are the typical Courtyard rooms. What sets this one apart was the gym and the breakfast. The gym is huge and has lots of weight equipment and cardio equipment. Had the USA Today in there plus a... More

Spent 3 Nights at this hotel. Staff was exceptional. I particularly enjoyed the complimentary cookies at the fronnt desk. Room was clean and large. Very nice courtyard, with fire pits that were burning day and night. Wonderful seating area.

I have to say I have never written a review on a hotel because I have never felt compelled to do so. However this time is different. This hotel is absolutely wonderful!! I travel quite frequently so I am aware of the options out there. The hotel room is the perfect size with everything laid out very well and conveniently.... More

We stayed here with a group and for a standard Marriott Courtyard the prices are awfully high. The rooms were fine, nothing out of the ordinary. The staff was pretty helpful and prompt. The only issue is the room noise, I could hear everything my neighbor was doing, they had an early morning call and it was like they were... More

Dear Willi172, Thank you for your comments. I apologize that we failed to meet your expectations. A few of our rooms have the connecting doors, which at times may cause some disturbance from the other room. We would be more than happy to assign you to a room on the top floor on your next visit. Our rates are in... More

We stayed here a few years ago for a special event (see review) and were back again for a family celebration...and on Super Bowl Weekend, to boot! With family and friends flying in from around the country (and some beyond), this hotel has a feature that is much appreciated--a huge lobby and outdoor patio area that allows for clusters of...

I have stayed in many Marriott Courtyards across the world and some are really on the mark, there was just something missing here, I needed a shoe shine kit, nothing elaborate and was directed to the local malls, I was told it wasn't that type of hotel, not sure what that meant, I would have paid.

Dear Gary C, Thank you for staying with us. I apologize that we did not have any shoe shine kit available for you. We do not receive a lot of request for this item but will definitely have them in stock for any future guest that may need them. Starting this year, we have also extended the lobby bar hours...

Every two years we travel to Stanford for a football game. We chose several nearby hotels over the years and each had its own positives. This was new to us and is actually in a good location for access to Stanford and dining locations. The rooms were spacious and clean. There is a courtyard to spend some idle time. But... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights during a recent visit to the south of the bay area. Overall, I recommend this hotel to anyone visiting this part of the bay if you are looking to avoid some of the traffic. The hotel offers free parking, and everything in my experience was perfect. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean, beds... More

I recently stayed here for a meeting. This hotel was fantastic. Fast internet, comfortable beds, excellent staff and overall a great experience. If you are traveling to Palo Alto or Silicon Valley...this is the hotel you need to stay at. The general manager and her team are excellent.
