Everything was excellent including the free WiFi :) The only thing I did not like that much was the breakfast, seemed to be simple and not that good as expected for $19.95 People attending was very nice, except for a taxi driver (not part of the Hotel of course) outside who did not want to take me to the Moscone...

This hotel is clean, quiet and well-located. If you're attending meetings in the financial district, SOMA or Moscone - this is an good choice for a 1-3 night stay. The hotel met my expectations for a Courtyard. Unlike many CYs, there is a Starbucks and a restaurant in the bottom of the hotel. Makes a late arrival or early departure... More

We host exchange students every year and try to give them as many adventures as possible. In doing so we are always looking for a bargain without giving up quality. In searching for a hotel for our recent trip to San Francisco over spring break we found "Courtyard San Francisco Downtown" with two queen beds at a steal of a... More

Location of this hotel is excellent. A lot of the SF highlights can be reached by foot or by BART/Muni/bus which are close by (5 min walk). The hotel has good and clean rooms and great beds. Breakfast is also very good with a lot of freshly prepared dishes. Internet is working properly and fast enough for most applications. The... More

I really liked this property. Centrally located to downtown, easy walking distance to BART, Union Square, ChinaTown, SFMOMA, and plenty of restaurants. Staff is super friendly - everyone seems to want to make you feel at home. On-site restaurant, exercise, and Starbucks. Room was clean, quiet, comfortable and well appointed (free Wi-Fi, in-room coffee). Cozy, plush bed and pillows. I... More

I was happy to find this hotel which is between a family home south of San Fran and the sights of the city. The lobby and rooms are good and there are always taxis outside to get you quickly where you want to go. The room with 2 double beds is more than adequate. Staff helpful.

This property has a lovely location downtown San Francisco. Close to all the tourist destinations, shopping, dinning and you can easily access the tour buses right in front of the hotel. There is a Starbucks on premises.

I was on a business trip with several of my laptops. Overall, the hotel was suitable but made my stay uncomfortable or uneasy. First, there is no safe in the room, and I had to leave my laptops with sensitive information open to the maid and the open door during room service. I therefore decided to stay and have the... More

This is a good hotel, with clean, modern and comfortable rooms. Sleep was no problem - our room was quiet. The hotel offers an on-site restaurant and a Starbucks, which provides an economical breakfast alternative. My impression is that this hotel might be a bit better for business guests than for tourists, since the location is not very near major... More

Just stayed here March 2-5 and the Check in process was quick, efficient and easy. I received an upgrade to a city view room on the 16th floor, which was a great surprise (if you are a gold member, request an upgrade). The room was clean, the products were great and there were at least 10 different outlets in the... More
