Shiny and new in all respects, and completely, predictably Marriott-branded. If you've every stayed at a Courtyard, you know exactly what to expect.
Couldn't be closer to the airport.
The food was remarkably good, lots of "typical" Costa Rican dishes, plus pizza and the like. The restaurant staff nicely allowed us to carry our bottle of wine to our room while we were waiting for our food to be delivered.
The desk staff generously allowed me to use their phone---at no charge--to call my airline (and hand around on hold for about 20 minutes, as usual) to figure out a check-in glitch.
One huge caveat: If you need to ask driving directions be very, very sure you get ahold of someone who knows what they're talking about and who is able to provide the CORRECT map. The very nice young woman at the front desk gave me husband erroneous directions to the Dollar Rent a Car office, which turned what should have been a twenty minute round trip into a two-hour, in-the-dark wild ride around Alauela and San Jose. Not fun.
