“Courtyard by Marriott Larkspur Landing San Francisco Bay Area”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We live in the Bay Area but wanted a birthday getaway for the weekend or a night. We are pretty familiar with most of the lodging options along the SF Peninsula up into SF. We were interested in waterfront and when we checked around the prices were, honestly, unreasonable. We are Marriott owners so we looked at all of Marriott properties and we, like some previous reviewers, also had a "free night" certificate. We had never really thought about staying in Larkspur. We thought it would be too busy near the Ferry Landing and the area is a thoroughfare to get to the Richmond Bridge. However, when we Google mapped it, we saw that it was set in from the main road so we decided to take a chance. Bottom line: we loved staying there. It is not waterfront lodging but you can get to the water in less than 5 minutes (maybe 3 minutes!).

We are hikers and if any of you out there are looking to hike Mt. Tam or its watershed area, this is a great option for lodging. We arrived at 12:00 (much earlier than check-in time) and they were willing to let us check in early (although don't expect this--it was just a nice gesture on Marriott's part to allow that). However, we wanted the 3rd floor so we decided to do our hike and then return. We hiked Bald Mountain near Fairfax (highly recommended for a fantastic view of the entire Bay Area). We returned and we had a smooth check-in. The staff was very friendly and accommodating

They were renovating the entire hotel and we were staying in an area that had completed renovation so we were in a new hotel room. It was clean and everything was new. It was quiet (a Saturday/Sunday) even though we saw workman on Saturday--we could not hear them at all. Anyway, I don't know when the renovations end but we requested a quiet room and Marriott delivered.

We walked across the street where there was several restaurants: a Brewery, Thai, FreshMex and Meat Deli restaurant. If you like quiet, go with the Thai! There is also a Starbucks. The Courtyard also serves Starbucks coffee in the lobby. We didn't use the Bistro in the Marriott but it is nice to have that option.

Anyway, this Courtyard was PERFECT for our needs and we concur with many of the previous reviews that it is ideally located virtually on SF Bay. The Ferry is a 5 minute walk at most, and it is near amazing Marin County hiking areas.

We are rating this a '4' simply because it is undergoing renovation.

The hotel itself is pretty standard Courtyard setup with Courtyard color themed lobby. The location is very good as other reviews already described extensively: easy access to SF city, airporter bus shuttle stop to SFO. Room is clean with nice hot shower. We dd get a balcony which is a first in a courtyard for us. Front desk check-in was fast and efficient, very helpful to our questions about the local areas and did so with great attitude. Keep up the good job Nouri. The restaurant/bar staff also very friendly and helpful as well. Overall, two thumbs up.

Walked into the hotel and the receptionist, just made me feel at home. I stay often at hotels and I can not recall feeling so welcome. Comfortable beds and nice size room, however the internet access can be better, not always stable. I wish they told me that they are remodeling the hotel and that construction noises (demolishing) will be loud. I would stay again.

I stay are Marriotts all of the time and I'm admittedly a very picky person. I think the rooms overall need a "refresher". The bathroom definitely needs some work. The carpeting in the main hallways are not so nice and the lighting throughout the hallways is quite dim. As mentioned, the staff is very pleasant but I am not likely to stay here again.

Hotel was clean, conveniently located for our purposes and the breakfast available at the hotel was good. A plus is Starbucks coffee available at this location. The farmer's market on Saturday across the street from the hotel was interesting with lots of local produce and other products.
