I booked less than a week in advance for a one night stay, so I wasn't too surprised to be quoted a rate of $449/night plus "taxes & fees". My room was 'average' - basically OK considering that this isn't a new property, but there were a couple of things that bothered me. If I booked a Motel 6 I'd expect to squirt my shampoo from a shower wall mounted dispenser. But a Marriott property? Give me the little bottles, please. And I don't want to hear about this policy being 'good for the environment' - it's all about saving money. And speaking of penny pinching: When I stay at a Marriott property in the middle of a city I expect to pay for parking. This Courtyard has plenty of on-site parking - but I was still hit with a $6.95 parking charge. I'm being generous with the 'Average' rating. Next time I'm in town I'll be taking my $500 elsewhere.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and it was fine. Room was good. Beds were comfy. Hotel was quiet. It is in a nice neighbourhood. Lots of eating options close by. Short walk to a pleasant waterfront park. More than happy to recommend to travellers.

Courtyard property itself is ok, but poorly laid out. There is only one elevator for the building and that is in the far right back corner. Biggest complaint is hidden charges. E.g., at checkout you find that there is a daily add on for parking - which is absurd. This is not downtown SF or a desirable area.At least they didn't have a resort fee. Breakfast is not included and is extremely expensive for what you get. After the first two days, our group took the 2 minute walk across the street and had breakfast at Noah;s NY bagel - a real treat food wise; just not a sit down restaurant experience. The one positive about the Courtyard breakfast is the lovely Jasmine, who single-handedly runs the breakfast. Also the cleaning staff were very efficient. Only hope that Marriott treats them better than their customers.

Dear twhite4809, Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback on TripAdvisor. I like to apologize for the experience during your recent stay. I had a discussion with our team to ensure that they let our valued guests know of daily parking fee when they take reservation via phone. I also personally checked our website to ensure that the fee has been communicated during the reservation process. Once again, thank you and our best wishes to you for a prosperous 2020. Yakub Yakubi- General Manager

From our first conversation with hotel staff, Sheila was great. Helpful and kind when my Wife was ill. She handled checkin and upgrade efficiently and answered every question we had. She helped make a difficult time easier. A real asset to this hotel. Thank you Sheila!

I am a Marriott Platinum and we stayed for a weekend to visit friends and I selected this hotel for its location and we were not disappointed. It was easy to navigate from this location and it was close to the airport, without being so close you hear all of the planes. The staff were friendly and most importantly, the hotel is quiet, which is important to me. I will definitely stay at this hotel on my next trip to the area.
