I spent one night here when visiting a customer nearby. The rooms were much larger and more modern than most of the Courtyards I stay in. The bathroom was new and the shower and counters were beautiful. Service was outstanding. The only negative was the price. It's very expensive for s local hotel. There is ample parking underground and it...

I can't think of anything to complain about. All the staff I dealt with were extremely helpful. We received an upgrade to a larger king room -- without requesting it. Also given coupons for 2 complementary drinks in the lobby bar. The room was clean and had everything we care about -- good shower, coffee maker, mini fridge. There were...

I came here on a business trip. Overall the hotel is very outdated and plain. Other hotels in the area have much more updated and better room interiors. The outdoor courtyard seating area was very nice with the fire pits, but the pool and spa were very dirty when I was there. The bed was rock-hard. The room was very...

We've stayed her numerous times and found the hotel to dependably provide a comfortable experience for us. Above average breakfast with fresh omelets, waffles, bacon, and sausage...plus much more. The rooms are always tidy and doesn't smell of cheap laundry detergent or fabric softener. Nice for those with allergies or sensitive skin. The pool and hot tub are always available...

They say you get what you pay for. That saying rings true here. While the bathroom is newly remodeled, the rest of the room is clearly dated and the air conditioning unit is loud when running. Located right next to the road, the thin walls will have you listening to traffic pass by all night. Also, this is not a...

After scrambling when plan A fell through when visiting Stanford Health Center, we landed at this hotel. Other than the crazy price tag, I was so pleased. The staff was awesome. The food at the restaurant was delicious and made it unnecessary to go out, although the menu was confusing (the menu in the room didn't match the one in...

Nice place. Centrally located. Only a few miles from Stanford University and a short drive to shopping. Many good restaurants in the area. Nothing fancy about the room.

We have stayed at this hotel several times. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, the bathrooms have been updated. I do wish Marriott would get away from those burnt orange and gold colors.

Tried the restaurant for their early special. Dinners at $16.50 for soup or salad, entree with veggies and potatoes and dessert. I had the salmon which was good. My husband had the BBQ ribs. They were good. The salad before was spring mix with a few cherry tomatoes. Large but very simple. The entrees had French fries or mashed potatoes....
