Stayed at this hotel last week while attending Dreamforce 2014. Since we booked late, I won't mention price, as I have stayed at this hotel for a fraction of the price during other trips. This is usually my second choice when attending conferences in SF. My first is the Marriott Marquis only because of the proximity to the convention center.... More

Here in San Francisco for a little couples time. Love the hotel! Will stay here next time I'm in the area. Room is comfortable. Room is clean. Hot tub & pool area are nice. Service is great, and the staff are friendly! They recommended a great Irish pub down the street. No complaints!

My husband & I stayed here Mon-Thurs. It is a comfortable hotel, not too big and in the heart of downtown. We did have a car & parking ends up being about $60/night. We had a 2 queen room booked as no King's were available at booking, but on our way Mon. morning I called to see if they had... More

We have stayed here in April 2014 for 3 nights. The location of the hotel is great, easy access to downtown. The staff was great in every department. The breakfast was simply the best.Try the steak sandwich in the bar, you will not regret it. We had a very nice room, quite big as well with a good view. Highly... More

We had an awesome time staying at this wonderful hotel. We enjoyed several meals at the restaurant as well and it was very good! This was the best location for us and at a great price. The fire pit area was a nice surprise - very relaxing and a good place to stay warm even in July since the weather... More

Pleasant staff. The rooms are lovely. Luxurious bed, nice interiors, FAST Free WiFi. Quick check in and check out. View from the room varies. I've gotten a view of the tall building across the street. Room service and food were very good. Parking fee was very expensive but we were able to park on the street for free because it... More

I like Marriott hotels. They offer a range of options from plush to basic, all with predictably good quality. The SF Downtown Courtyard is no exception – typical Marriott quality, no complaints. It’s more expensive than the average Courtyard, you won’t get free coffee in the lobby because there’s a Starbucks in the lobby, and valet parking will cost you... More

I recently stayed here for business. It in the South of Market, so is bit of a walk if you are looking to go to Market street or Embarcadero, but very doable so the location isn't terrible. The rooms were very spacious and clean. I had a restful stay. Even though my room was facing a busy street, it was... More

Travel to SF 2-3 times a year for business, leisure. We booked for the end of season giant's games and some of our usual stops were booked or charging extortionist rates, thanks Oracle. We decided to try the Marriott Courtyard downtown as they had availability and our corporate rate for 2 nites and close to the stadium. My husband had... More

I've stayed here a couple of times and is now my go to hotel for the SF financial district. Super convenient, nice and clean. Good bar and big courtyard (no pun intended). Good room, good view - if you get one. Perfect walking distance to a ton of things. Cabs always readily available. Store across the street is super convenient.... More
