I stay at a lot of Courtyards around the country and this is by far the most hospitable and reliable in terms of service. The staff go out of their way to remember people’s names and the staffing is consistent which makes it feel as much like a home away from home as a hotel can

As Marriott loyalists, we've stayed in a fair number of Courtyards. We'd rate this one as well into the upper half of the Brand. Pro's: - Especially friendly and enthusiastic staff. - Quite clean, and generally well maintained. - Great location. Grocery and restaurants

My family and I stayed here for one night. Beds were very comfortable, rooms were very clean and staff was very friendly and helpful. Very quiet. Got a good night's sleep. Definately would stay here again.

The Marriott itself has an in-house dining area called The Bistro, which serves a pretty good breakfast and an evening meal. Don't think they do lunch, but some of the Courtyards do, so maybe that has changed. The offerings are a bit limited but it is a pleasant setting. Near the hotel parking lot there is a McDonald's as well as a Safeway store that has a Deli. Just a block further, at the other end of the parking lot from Safeway is Super Burger (indoor and outdoor dining with some surprisingly good offerings). There is also a place called Toast. I haven't eaten there. There's a juice bar. To my knowledge, that's about it for walking distance from that particular hotel. Good luck! Have a nice trip.

are pets allowed?

The Marin Airporter is a dedicated charter bus service that makes 5-8 stops throughout Marin County and then ends at San Francisco Airport. The fair is typically under $30 one way. As for Muir Woods, while there isn't a "Tour" from the Courtyard, there are shuttles from car parks to Muir Woods provided by Marin Transit, for time tables and schedule the Route Number is 66. A typical fare is $5 each way.

"High floor toward back of building on south side"
"Room over pool had a balcony."
"Top floor. Request non-adjoining room for the quietest experience."
"Try to stay away from train tracks and main road. Ask for such a room if the hotel has one available."
"Close to ice machine, and away from the train."
