“Great was to enjoy San Diego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

This hotel makes it so easy to enjoy going downtown for the night. Our room was great, all the comforts of home. We appreciated the lobby area and outdoor patio. It was very comfortable to sit out and enjoy the perfect San Diego weather (with a sweater).The staff was very courteous, helpful and professional, our breakfast was delicious and the location was perfect. We were close to all downtown and Point Loma have to offer. We will definitely stay in this Courtyard again, might bring the kids next time. I was initially wondering if the airport noise would be an issue...it wasn't, don't remember ever hearing a plane.

The location of this hotel is great and the service was friendly and professional. The beds and pillows are so comfortable, the room was spacious and our view was pretty! My husband and I had a great time. This is obviously a well-run hotel and we will definitely go back again.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor up above the lobby and it was very convenient.

I love love love this hotel. From the beautiful location, friendly staff, and cozy rooms, to the delicious breakfast buffet....ahhh....it is perfection!
My husband and I live in San Diego and this hotel is our #1 choice for a relaxing Stay-cation. There is so much to do for every mood: take a walk over to Wine Steals, visit Pt. Loma Seafood and get smoked fish and sourdough and have a picnic on the water, hike through Cabrillo National park, or take a quick cab ride downtown to party...the possibilities are endless.
I highly recommend Liberty Station Marriott--I promise you won't be disappointed!

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room overlooking the water. Totally worth it!

We arrived fairly early and they had a room available on the second floor. We went to look but decided we would wait for a room on a higher floor. By the time we returned to the front desk, a room on the 4th floor opened up and we happily checked in to room 437 by 12:30. Steph at the front desk is very friendly and helpful! The room was quite spacious and well appointed. We couldn't have asked for a better view. Very comfortable for our family of four. We filled the fridge with snacks and breakfast items to save some time and money. The pool was a bit chilly and the hot tub did break down while we were there, but was fixed by the next night. I wish the pool was a bit warmer, but would probably be fine during the warmer months. The pool was covered by shade in the afternoon, again probably fine in the warmer months but was cool and breezy in April. The gym is one of the most equipped I've seen at a hotel, unfortunately, a lot of the personal TVs were not working. 4 treadmills and 2 elliptical machines, a bike and lots of weights. There are games you can check out from the front desk as well. The fireplace and fire pit are a nice touch in the evening. The hotel does have a lot of weddings and conventions so be aware. Parking was never really an issue and there are some restaurants within walking distance. I would return as it was very convenient and only 5-10 minutes from so many tourist attractions.

I booked this hotel for a 13 night stay for our coaching staff and soccer teams. From the moment of arrival, the hotel staff went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. The rooms were ready upon arrival and were very clean and spacious. The breakfast was fabulous - with many options for all of our players - the homemade granola was great! The outdoor areas (fire pit, etc) made group dinners and meetings very easy. The park next door was a wonderful area for training prior to our tournaments. Nearby restaurants and grocery stores (Trader Joe's and Von's) also made this the perfect location for our group. We are looking forward to returning next year!

It was a pleasure to host your teams and thank you for the review. We’re glad they enjoyed our hotel and surrounding community, it sounds like they were good fit for your needs. I also agree that this is a perfect location for teams- the 45 acres of park land make a great location to burn off that extra energy.

I’ll be sure to pass on your comments about breakfast to our food and beverage folks – I know they will be happy to hear them. We look forward to your visit next year.

Take care

Marriott has become our First Choice when traveling and the Airport/Liberty Station Courtyard lived up to and exceeded our expectations! We underestimated the drive time to SD and called to let them know we'd be late, but were assured it was no problem. And after a smooth and friendly check-in, our party of four decided to eat a late dinner in the hotel instead of getting back into the car. We were not expecting much from a hotel eatery, but were pleasantly surprised with excellent crab sandwiches, crisp salads and what would prove to be the tastiest clam chowder of our entire week in So. California. The breakfasts proved to be very good as well, and the service fast and friendly. Our server's recommendations on sightseeing were top notch and much appreciated!
As to the rooms, we found them to be clean, comfortable and spacious enough for us. The second couple in our party told us that their bathroom fan wouldn't turn off, but I think that was their only issue.
The hotel sits next door to the Liberty Station Complex, a large and attractive area that once housed the Naval Training Center and now was home to shops, museums, and restaurants. There is huge open park area that lies along the inlet and it was ideal for walking and jogging. The outside seating area attached to the lounge provided a pleasant place to sit in the evening and enjoy a drink or two before dinner.
And I have to add that, like we have come to expect from the chain, the hotel staff here was friendly and welcoming and totally accommodating. Thanks, San Diego !!
