I stayed here in March while traveling on business. This was my second stay and I love the close proximity to BART and Chinatown. There is also a free bus that stops nearby and goes to Jack London Square. If you forget an item there is a gift shop in the lobby or a Smart and Final grocery across the...

The Courtyard is a great place to stay. It is a short walk to Jack London Square which is a super cool place to hang out! It is an even shorter walk to Bart which will take you to any part of San Francisco! Great rooms, good prices and comfort without the San Fran prices!

The Valet and Front Desk agents are very helpful and always available for any needs or advice on the area. We stay here often because the rooms are newer than the other Marriott in the area and it comes with a Cafe in the lobby. The Cafe downstairs though suffers from okay service with food taking along time with no...

I was in town for a show at the Paramount Theater, and this was one of a few hotels in the area. It was nice enough for our purposes (which was just to be near the show.) I wouldn't bother staying here if your plans have you in San Francisco. The price difference isn't enough to justify being that far...

We stayed here for 3 nights on a recent trip with our family (2 teens). We reserved a room with two queen beds. The room was nicely decorated and had plenty of space for the four of us. It was more than I expected for the price. The bedding was delightful and we all slept great. The hotel staff was...

There once was an old lady who lived in a shoe; at $5,000 a month (for a studio), whattaya gonna do?!!! New Year's Eve, no woman (long story), I was determined to have a good time, to heck with it.

Prices are reasonable... there is a fee for valet parking, but completely worth it - they are great guys in the valet dept. . Location in Chinatown is fun and unique. Definitely worth it to get the room with the whirlpool tub. Nice, clean, very close to Kaiser Center/Lake Merrit.

Stayed here a month back for the giants parade for 2 nights. Location is good, typical Courtyard quality rooms, rates are usually a bit cheaper than the full service Marriott across the street. Rooms were a bit small but was very clean except the sofa bed which could use some deep cleaning, housekeeping did a fine job and my check...

The hotel is in a great location near BART and good food options very close by. The rooms are a good size and well presented. Like all Marriott Courtyards these days the breakfast area has been replaced with the Startbucks style Bistro - which is OK but a little limited and slow compared to the Starbucks across the street. Other...

The hotel is located a block from the downtown BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) Station; a few blocks from Jack London Square; and a few blocks from the Amtrak Station. So, it is situated in great location. They just need to work on fulfilling the request of their guests. We had asked for a room with two queen size beds...
