“Best Courtyard Marriott I've stayed at!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

I just spent two glorious nights at the Courtyard Marriott in San Salvador. It's in a great location, adjacent to La Gran Via shopping area. This Courtyard Marriott is the nicest one I've stayed at by far (and I've stayed at a lot of them in the USA). What stood out for me was the excellent service provided by the staff there, in particular from a lovely gentleman called Rigo, who went above and beyond to help us with a number of queries we had. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel was busy and bustling, yet very efficient and hospitable. It felt like a Courtyard Marriott in the U.S. Its proximity to an outdoor shopping mall and restaurants was a real plus. Safety and security seemed very good.

It's a lovely standard Marriott Courtyard hotel. Right in a luxury shopping mall in the new district of San Salvador. It's approx 45 min from the airport, 20 min from the old downtown. Right next to the mall is Walmart, if you are doing a Central America rainforest excursion, this place is great to stay over to recharge with the location, and on-site washer/dryer.
Pro:
Lobby is welcoming, and the front desk staff are supper friendly and helpful. Love them.
Room, bed, bathroom are clean, big, and comfortable. But can hear everything in the hall way.
Gym is pretty good, with pretty new equipments. Next to the gym is laundry room where you can find coin operated washer and dryers. Front desk also provide free laundry detergent.
Walk out the hotel is the mall, very L.A. Like, many nice stores, restaurants, and Cafe.

Con:
Breakfast is ok, $10 per person, consider it's in CA, little pricy. And as a Marriott Platinum member, first time ever I got charged for breakfast. Not very pleases with this, but it's only 10 bucks.
Sound block in the room not too good, can hear everything through the door. Be sure to request rooms away from the elevators.

I travel a lot throughout central America.

I love San Salvador easy to get to from Guatemala on Pullman, catch the BUS right out in front of the Holiday Inn in Guatemala City. Good price $40.00 round trip.

Once you arrive in San Salvador at the Pullman Bus Terminal a quick $6 taxi ride to the Marriott. I have arrived at home. The staff are organized speak English and Spanish and are there to take care of you. Not to just send you to your room.

The staff does extend more services. For example I wanted to go the beach area of El Salvador. The great staff worked out a deal with a Taxi driver to take me to the beach. $25.00.

The Hotel is ideal located with three malls all within walking distance of the Hotel. Each mall has restaurants, bars and a great choice of food and beverage.

A clean and huge Walmart sits between the two Malls. Great selection of Beverages.

I had trouble with the free Wifi in my room and went to the front desk not to complain just ask. Within minutes a nice man came with a Wifi router and fixed the problem. In minutes.

The pool is small but in the heat of the day refreshing.

The staff takes security serious and makes sure all guests are guests. Free advise and many suggestions of how to get around San Salvador at the best prices. No fixed deals to be found here.

This was my second stay in months and when I walked in the staff remembered me even though I was late and arrived at 9:30. On-line only a room with 2 double beds were available. I was offered at that check in time a king bed at no extra charge.

Consider this property close to everything and great staff.

Room Tip: The entire property is very quiet, no matter the room. Book on-line or call it all works without tho...

Stayed here for our last two nights before flying home. Taxis are available 24 hours a day and $25 will get you to the airport. Located in a totally safe and walkable area, we just went for walks in the Gran Via (an indoor and outdoor mall) and hung around the hotel.

We stayed in room #224 which had a king bed, very nice and clean and came with a great breakfast. Lots of choices both hot and cold and a chef that cooks your eggs/omelet to your taste. We had dinner on one of the nights there and it was also very good.

The pool was very nice as well. There is a coin-operated washer and dryer on the 2nd floor if you need to do some laundry and a gym as well.

On our last morning we had an early flight out so couldn't eat our included breakfast and the hotel made us a “breakfast to go” that consisted of a sandwich, yogurt, fruit and juice. Just make sure you ask for it at reception the night before.

One thing I would advise: Don't show up at the hotel in shorts especially if you are a man. We had just come from a tour and my husband forgot to zip his leg pants back on and he got a very chilly reception. In fact, when we checked in, the clerk was focusing on me only and no one even helped us with our luggage. 30 minutes later we returned downstairs with hubby dressed more appropriately and everyone was all smiles and greeting him accordingly. Keep in mind that unlike some of the beach areas, they are a little more conventional in the city. Long pants for men and below the knee shorts or skirts for the ladies.

Last but not least, I would definitely return to this hotel if in San Salvador as the staff were extremely friendly, without being in your face. Comfortable rooms with all the amenities that a Marriott hotel offers.

A great place to stay in San Salvador. Clean and quiet rooms -- safe and secure. Just what i expected. The hotel is ideally located and you can walk a few meters to a nice, new shopping area with a wide choice of restaurants. Hotel has a great buffet breakfast.
