“Trendy and updated”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

In my experience a lot of the branch off marriott properties were a little more dated but the rooms were larger. This Marriott actually was quite a surprise. Aside from the u turn one must make when traveling west (there's no direct turn into the property) getting here was fairly easy. It's located near a main intersection that has a new upscale/trendy mall/restaurant complex. I forgot what it's called. Check in was simple and easy. The rooms were a little smaller but the design was very modern and more artsy as they have different types of decorated wallpaper in every room. (We had 3 rooms and they weren't the same). The garage entrace is a little wierd if you have a bigger vehicle the key lock system is on a curve so it's not the easiest to get to but there is ample parking space. When we were there construction was happening in one of the corners of the garage but it didn't impact us. Housekeeping does a good job. And the lobby has a lil bar at night/coffee bar during the day. there were lots of college age students that stayed here but most of them were just conversating and enjoying each others company. It's a great place to stay and would definitely stay again.

We have an office in Mountain View so this is a very convenient location. Normally I stay in Santa Clara because the Marriott there is a full service hotel. This time I decided to stay here and have been pleasantly surprised. The hotel has been completed update--the lobby has a very modern feel with a surprisingly sexy vibe yet without the noise of a full lobby bar. The restaurant has great made to order food with great service. They recently updated the fitness room with new equipment and the rooms are spacious with super comfortable beds. The hotel has a great courtyard with a pool, hot tub and gas fireplaces; and the beds are super comfortable with great bedding.

My only complaint is the price (over $300 per night) but this is the heart of the technology beltway and with Google around the corner, it is not surprising to see this room rate. I should also mention that the staff is great and very helpful.

Room Tip: This hotel only has three levels and the 3rd floor is the best location, but considered to be an upg...

The place has been renovated. The staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable and make it easy to cater for yourself although the hotel provide complimentary evening meals four nights a week. It's not The Ritz but a good clean friendly place and I enjoyed my stay here

I stayed at this property for a single night before a campus visit with my daughter to Stanford. We experienced the standard Courtyard by Marriott stay - nothing magical but nothing terrible. The room was comfortable and quiet (request a room that does not overlook busy Camino Real). Check-in and out was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed a few hours poolside - the outdoor courtyard really is lovely and much nicer than many other Courtyard properties. I appreciated the gated, secure underground parking. The only complaint I had was the construction - right outside our window beginning at 8am. Ugh.

At the time of staying here, there are renovations ongoing of the lobby, so on the positive, there's extensive seating areas and a nice open business center. Makes it convenient to meet up, work or chill. Rooms are good, but like many things in this area, overpriced. We all want a nice place to stay, but just as important is the customer service, which has been at the extremes. The night woman who goes by the name Rizza was extremely rude, unprofessional and we almost cancelled our reservation just because of her attitude. Not sure who's bright idea was to hire her (she apparently is a night auditor), but she should NEVER be interacting with customers. During the day, had a very different experience with a nice woman. In the evening, the guy running their brand new bar told a guest who asked for a cup of water that they don't do that...he can only buy bottled water. Really? So, if you plan to come here, be prepared to pay a lot and unless they figure out how to renovate the staff, not just the lobby, they are just an average hotel.

Courtyard by Marriott is a good hotel located in Los Altos. There is a bus stop nearby and it is easy to travel to the Palo Alto Transit Center. The rooms are good and clean, and staff is courteous. Would recommend this hotel if you do not mind taking the transit to Palo Alto Transit Center (and then walk to University Ave, etc).

We stayed 4 nights beginning on a Thursday. Made 2 reservations due to a last minute change in plans. I walked in at 8 am since I was changing hotels just to see if a room might be available. It was like I was asking for something special. I was met by 2 front desk staff, one who was in training, whom stated that they had been sold out and would be sold out again. Since I had 2 reservations and needed help cancelling one, we asked them to do this. Blank stares. We then asked if they could call us when our room was ready, we were told that was not possible since housekeeping was not going to arrive until after 8am. Not seeing the connection, we asked again and were met with blank stares again. When we arrived at 3pm, check-in time, the room was not ready still. At this point, we contacted the supervisor who was horrified that we had been treated this way. A room was made ready and when we were given the keys by one of the initial ladies, we were handed the keys without a word. No explanation of the nightly snacks, welcome gift since we are platinum etc. They ended up making it right with a great room, points, apologies etc. But wow, I had not ever expected such a bad day and that wax what the trainee thought was good customer service. We were told numerous times that this was not the way they run the hotel. Rick was great throughout and ask him for help if you need anything. We are willing to try again for do-over. The gym was getting renovated and should be great. Rooms are recently renovated, standard.
