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.

We have stayed here since 2003 when our son started at Stanford. I always request a specific room on the back of the hotel and last week when we checked in, this room was not available. Rommy upgraded us to a larger room overlooking the courtyard. There are many perks, including a free drink coupon on check in, pizza and... More

There are many pleasant surprises at this hotel, starting with the multi-tasking restaurant area which does great service as a restaurant for breakfast, an area for meetings throughout the day, and then morphs into a pleasant place for dinner. The lounge is wonderful for more relaxed meetings, calls and chilling out with complimentary pizza and wine in the evenings and... More

This is a great Courtyard by Marriott. Our one bedroom suite was spacious and clean. In addition to a large living room area we had a Keurig coffee pot, refrigerator, microwave, bar sink and large counter space area. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We love that most Courtyards now offer the bar, lounge and small cafe space on... More

Stayed four nights at this location. Staff were attentive, nice, and amazing. The property is so well kept it is hard to believe that it is not brand new. The location is perfect for work and play and the amenities support this too. I would highly recommend this hotel as it is better than the high-end, big city hotels in... More

Dear Rossvesq, It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed our hotel amenities and the service you received during your stay. Our location in the Silicon Valley is what drives the rates a little higher than others. There are also a lot of great restaurants close by that we would love to recommend to you on your next visit. We hope... More

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
