Reviewed November 24, 2013

After a long day on the road with my friend, we arrived at the hotel where he had stayed previously. We got our room, but the manager told us not much was available because of a convention in the city. We were charged $299 for a simple, no frills room that under other circumstances I would not have paid $100.00.

I don't see me returning to San Salvador again soon, but if I do, this hotel will not be on my list for a place to stay

Thank you very much for your comments, we appreciate it!
As you mentioned, during the past week on November the all city hosted the Latin American poultry convention, unfortunately two month before to the convention dates, the hotel was almost full without promotional rates available.

Very nice and good hotel very central located in the Capital. Very near the Mall and several restaurants. The hotel is good, the staff speaks English in general and they are quite service minded and nice. The rooms are nice and big. Everything worked perfect and they are very clean. Absolutely worth a visit and definitive a place I will return to.

As described by others, a nice, clean hotel with excellent service. The hotel is a typical Courthouse but El Sal's lower wages means you have more staff and better service relative to a U.S. Courthouse. It is ideally situated, as there is a mall and plenty of eateries just out the door. The hotel itself does a great job with their breakfast which includes cooked to order eggs and omelets. Weekends are busy and frankly noisy, especially Saturday nights. Even on the fifth floor the noise from downstairs can be heard after midnight. I have a room facing the rear which means less road noise during the normal, but suffers on Saturday nights. The other annoyance are the alarms from the cars parked in the mall parking lot. The service staff does an excellent job, helpful, prompt, and extremely courteous. The complimentary internet is high speed with wifi and ethernet connectivity. Skype works fine. The beds are hard (which I like) the sofa's are soft.

For those who are Marriott Gold or Platinum Rewards members do not expect anything special. I am typically offered an upgraded, or at a minimum a note from the manager but that did not happen. Disappointing but by no means a game changer.

Room Tip: Recommend the back side of the hotel. The further down from the elevators rooms x02-x08 the quieter...

This is a very nice hotel in the outskirts of San Salvador City, in front of a large mall with many restaurants and bars. Since this is literally a few steps away from the lobby, you have lots of choices for dinner and shopping in a very safe environment. The hotel itself is clean, tidy and has a little pool and a gym. Rooms appear to have been recently renovated. Highly recommendable, especially when compared to Hilton Princess which, being similar in terms of amenities, doesn't have the mall advantage.

We had a special offer to stay at this hotel with our credit card company. I called the credit card company and the main 1-800 marriot number and both said the sale was still valid ($50 plus taxes) and that I had to reserve directly with the hotel. The hotel did not honor the offer. We stayed anyways. The hotel is clean and the rooms are a good size. They have a great breakfast buffet (which could be better if pupusas were offered EVERY day). People at the hotel: Luis was very rude on the phone, Ana I. wasn't very nice. Rigoberto was especially kind and went out of his way to help us with recomendations and places to visit. Another lady at the front desk with long hair was very nice as well. People at the buffet were kind and did well their job. Room service was efficient. Location is great, you are close to everythingand have a "mall" within steps. The pool is small, but my kids enjoyed it. All in all, our stay was great...the bad was limited to the rude people over the phone and not honoring the sale price ( even when I had it in writing).

My Businesspartner and i have been at this Courtyard in San Salvador for a few Days, due our Company had several Conferences in the near Area. We both can say, that the Hotel is really good and all Services have been good. There was also Businesscenter available, wich was well outfitted. We also have been two Times in the Restaurant and also there, we did get a very high Standard.
