I come to San Diego pretty often for work. I usually stay at the Marriott in the Gaslamp. It was my first time staying at this Courtyard and I'm so glad I did! First, I walk in and get greeted by a friendly front desk staff. I absolutely have to mention one girl in particular. Her name was Sandy. She was so personable and informative. It's people like her that make Marriott great. She made sure to give me directions and was always very attentive. The hotel itself is beautiful. Rooms are clean and decor is nice. Also, staff at the bar were very friendly. Will be coming back!
