We stay at this hotel on our visits back home (living overseas now). Location is convenient with Jamba juice, Noah bagel close by and easy access to Rte 92 and 101. Most recently, they jacked up rates due to a conference in SF, which is annoying. Somehow $400+ per night for these rooms WITHOUT any breakfast or other amenities (shuttle...

We have stayed here numerous times and the experience has always been pleasant. The front desk staff is amazing and makes you feel valued from check-in to check-out. The rooms have been remodeled and they are very nice and quite serene. Marriott has merged with Starwood so the prices seem to have gone up.

Minimal on the extras. Old rooms but clean and serviced. Nice lobby. No breakfast included. Ground level hotel. At about 200$ for a night it was relatively expensive for the value. Not sure of the alternatives but would prefer other.

We stayed here after arriving on a late flight from the East Coast and wanting to avoid wasting a lot of money on a room in the city. It is a typical Courtyard Marriott but rooms and bathrooms appeared to be recently updated. Easy parking and a cafe in the lobby that served breakfast items and coffee and wine and...

Nice hotel. Clean and comfortable. Corridors in the hotel are depressive a bit, but this is the only disadvantage. Very nice place to stay if you are in the business trip. Location is very good. Safeway supermarket in a half of mile.
