“Great staff”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This hotel is a nice Courtyard. The rooms are clean and a decent size. The bathrooms are small compared to others I have stayed in but for one or two it is fine. The staff here makes it worth the stay. They are very friendly and accommodating offering suggestions for things to do and restaurants.

Where to start? The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is convenient and close to Stanford's campus where we attended an event. Rooms are clean and spacious. The beds are a little soft, but we are accustomed to a very firm mattress. Extras like a laundry room near the lobby, with complimentary soap and fabric softener, snacks in the lobby (mini pizza, appetizers, popcorn, donut holes) all complimentary , free parking underground (with security gates), lots of gathering area in the main lobby, with tv's and computers to print out boarding passes.
Very nice. Highly recommend. Wish all Marriott Courtyard properties were up to this standard!

Room Tip: We had room 238, near elevator, not noisy from elevator, on the same side as the street. Not much st...

Clean rooms, loved the decor, nice breakfast (did have to pay, but it seemed reasonable). Very comfortable stay. Had 2 rooms--no problems with either of them. The parking was free. It was located in a very nice area (safe, clean looking). Not a fan of Starbucks, but......

Hubby and I stayed with our three-year-old at this hotel over the Thanksgiving holiday. The hotel staff was friendly, attentive, professional and accommodating. Check-in and check-out were lightning fast. We stayed in a king suite which was spotlessly clean. The bed was very comfortable and the room was sound proof. There was plenty of free parking. The surrounding area is very safe. The only thing I wish the hotel had was room service. However, they do have a Starbucks and a bistro where you can order "to go". I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for 2 months with our 2 year old son. Our family stayed in other rooms. Great and friendly service from everyone at this hotel! Very nice pool area, we used it almost every day. Good parking. Great location in Los Altos. Easy to enter freeway. Used the gym several times, good enough for me. Open 24 hours. Breakfast is ok, but good a bit tired after a couple of weeks. Could have been better selection of bread and a variety of eggs, but I guess it is a typical american breakfast.

We would definitely come back again if we are in the area, because of the nice rooms, fantastic service and pool!!

Room Tip: Ask for room facing pool area - much lighter and brighter inside, and nice view.
