Ok, I know hotels in the Valley aren't the best value on the planet but these are New York prices for a Marriott Courtyard that is neither unique or exceptional. The only explanation is commonly called "profiteering". I'm a long time Marriot Rewards member (Lifetime Elite) and when I asked if an upgrade was available at these prices the response... More

We were in the area on vacation and needed a place to stay for one night before our flight home. The staff were very nice, and the room was clean and comfortable. There was nothing wrong with our room or our stay, just hard to give more than a 4 rating for a place we only slept in. Plus, we... More

I'd been warned. The property is under construction until sometime in July. However, the location was OK so I gave it a shot. There was noise but I discount that inconvenience because I knew it was going to happen. I did find the A/C troublesome. I think the filter needs cleaning because when it kicked on, I started sneezing and... More

Comfortable Marriott has pretty much all the amenities check-listed for a business trip: location, convenience & peace. Location: 20 minutes from SFO, 15 minutes from Redwood City, 30 minutes to Menlo Park. Convenience: Short hop from 101. Spotted right across the Costco. It’s a car-centric office park town so there is not much to do for walkers. Couple of nearby... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night while traveling for business. The location is extremely convenient to my office and given the Marriott brand I assumed this hotel would be nice quality for the price being charged. The lobby area is quite nice, modern and the staff were very friendly; but that's where the positives stopped. The room was dark... More

Construction is in motion, but they have managed to keep it very very quiet while they are doing their work. I like this hotel for its location, with decent restaurants nearby, and their astute staff. This was my second visit here to this hotel.

I spent eight nights at this Courtyard while visiting family in San Mateo. I have tried other hotels in the area, including other Marriotts, and not returned to any of them.

This is a great location if you work at Visa...just one block away. The staff is very friendly but there is one key ingredients missing...a local shuttle. Although the rooms are a little dated they are remodeling and the bar is not exactly stellar but functional, the shuttle only goes to local employers. Visa is one block away so I... More
