Used this as a transit hotel, stayed the night and left for Coco next morning. Hotel is modern, staff is good. parking is free. The hotel has some kind of green certification. The only downside of the hotel is the 20USD breakfast, it's not worth it!!! Not enough choice and the quality of the items offered is not that of... More

We arrived late at night into San Jose and needed a place to sleep while waiting for our flight to the south the next morning. There was a free shuttle to the hotel from the airport which was super convenient. The shuttle could be easier to find but we eventually found the Marriott sign among the throng of taxi drivers....

Clean, comfortable, and very affordable. Close to the airport with shuttle service every 1/2 hour. Nearby restaurants and across from a Walmart. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room was very clean and comfortable. A short cab ride to Central Market costs around $25 US.

Much more than what I expected: Great location to transit for activities near San Jose, close to a big mall. Breakfast was great and the most pleasant surprise was free laundry and dryer machine. It was just what we needed.

This hotel is perfect for travel to Costa Rica especially when you are coming to visit another city/town. The hotel is literally less than 10 minutes from the airport. The Courtyard has a free shuttle that runs every 30 minutes as early as 5 AM and as late as about midnight. There's a brand new (huge) mall (opened on 11/11/2015)... More

If you are stopping over in San Jose for a night this is an ideal hotel. Very close to the airport with shuttles every 30 minutes. Just walk outside the airport and the hotel rep is easy to find. Hotel is clean and quiet. Price is fair.
