Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard San Francisco Downtown
This is a very pleasant hotel which is unbeatable for the money. The rooms were very clean and nicely furnished. The indoor pool is nice and was not busy. The staff are nice enough.
The only downsides were the location - as a general tourist we found it a long walk to some of SF attractions, and also, there are hardly any nice restaurants or bars nearby and the hotel bar was nice enough but lacked that certain 'atmosphere'.
I was forced to stay here because of a seminar I was taking. I have been back several times since. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are basic but very clean. You don't get the pushy snobby feeling that you get in the pricier hotels North of Market. I walked to SBC ball park, the Moscone Center and even the emarcadero. Get a room that is not on 2nd street becuase the traffic can be loud. I will stay again.
Arrived in San Fran booked into a Wharf Hotel, quickly left, don't they clean? Came to the Courtyard, we were seeing a game. Easy walking to the park, even at night. Lots of families, easy walking to transit on Market, great breakfast, nice clean room, would recommend and have already.
Close to SBC Park
We were in San Fran for a Giants game. The hotel was relatively close to SBC Park. Rooms were VERY clean and quiet, but a bit small. Had 2 young children so the King bed and pull out couch worked nicely. Hotel staff was wonderful and even got us some milk for the baby's bottle at 10pm. Was told walking to Muni would be fastest to SBC Park. . . Was quite a walk to muni with the 2 little ones. Game was on Sunday when Muni runs less often so would take a cab right to the park next time and save an hour! Rate was found on Marriott.com which gaurantees to be less than other hotel websites. Paying $30 for valet parking was a big surprise. Overall, very good accomodations and would stay again.
Good hotel - really slow valet
My wife and I stayed here over the July 4th weekend, as a base for going up to Napa (it's not possible to make a one-night reservation in Napa at short notice ;( ). I reserved this hotel via priceline--- for $60 (normally $99). Even though we couldn't get a higher floor due to late check-in, the 3rd floor room was quiet, clean and spacious. For dinner on Saturday we walked a couple of blocks to Roy's (highly recommended), and on Sunday had an excellent breakfast at the hotel.
The only slight downside of our stay was that it took forever to get our car from the valet in the Sunday morning rush. Maybe it's a better idea to park elsewhere...
Good Downtown Hotel
This hotel has a good location - walking distance to the Moscone Convention Center and Museum of Modern Art and three blocks to the public transit options on Market Street with many additional bus lines in the area. It's built using a common Marriott layout - nothing spectacular but very clean, comfortable, and convenient. As with all downtown hotels be prepared to pay up for services and food, but the staff is extremely helpful, friendly, and efficient. All rooms look outward. Ask for a high floor for a good view of the city or Bay Bridge.
Don't forget the orange juice!
We stayed at this hotel because we needed someplace close to the Moscone Center (it's just three blocks away and less than a 10-minute walk).
We asked for a floor near the top (for less noise) and we got the top floor (18th). Pretty quiet except for occasional sirens. Rooms are average, but very clean. Free high-speed Internet access a big plus (though our's was slow at times).
Eating the breakfast buffet at Jasmine's in the lobby is a MUST, if only for the fresh-squeezed orange juice. Maybe the best I've ever had.
Good food too.
Hotel is close to the Bay Bridge, so convenient to get to Oakland (which is we flew out of)...parking is expensive ($30 to valet), but so is everywhere else.
Try the Courtyard downtown...
This hotel at Second and Folsom was the only downtown hotel I could find with two queen beds instead of doubles in the rooms to accommodate a group of my sisters, nieces and me on their first trip to the wonderful city of San Francisco. The lobby and lounge area were beautiful, unique and welcoming, the rooms--although typical Marriott decor--were very clean, housekeeping was meticulous (I was even required to show I.D. and my key instead of walking right in once when returning unexceptedly to the room which was open and being cleaned, a nice security measure I appreciated), towels were plentiful. No hall or city noise. I asked for two rooms close together on a high floor and we were given adjoining rooms with a connecting door which was fun for the group (I had not thought to ask for connecting rooms). Plenty of coffee shops nearby for breakfast (also one in the hotel but higher priced), within easy walking distance to Union Square and the cable cars. Felt very safe in the area. Rates were very reasonable. Have never seen a review of this hotel on this site and felt it deserved a good one!
Found it OK
Good hotel. Parking is a joke though. Pay $30 a day for valet or down the street for a little less. Either way they will get you. Public parking is expensive also. This location is not near any food establishments that are open on the weekends as this area caters to the business crowd. Too far from public transportation (cable cars) but driving a few miles will get you to the water front and to restaurants.
Once again you have to pay to park.
Great hotel and service.The people are very nice and the hotel is
first-class.The food in the restaurant is wonderful we will be back

Na twee nachten nog steeds niet gewend aan het tijdsverschil. Om
... after 8 pm. We went to the Westfield food court and managed to all find something we liked. We are impressed by the variety of good food available at places like this.
There was a huge fireworks display planned for the evening, down at the harbour. We were too tired to manage to get there and gave it a miss. It was a bit disappointing, but we later learned it was hidden In the mist, and people couldn't see it.
At 9:30am this morning we checked out of Park Hotel, which we'd recommend to anyone visiting San Francisco because it's in the centre of Downtown and the owner is great, he even upgraded our room because it was my birthday. Our Segway tour began at 11:30am and the first 30 minutes our great guide Melanie showed us how to steer them and how to do an emergency stop just incase! We always ...
... the waterfront and across the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito. What a pretty little town, humongously expensive houses mainly over $1 million each but very cute shops and walkways along the shore front. We have an hour free, personally we would have preferred more time here and less at Alcatraz, and you could easily have done both trips independently. However our guide was very good and we wouldn't have learnt as much on our own. After a walk along ...
... some early NHL games, but no joy there either. So, it was baseball. We learned very quickly that our children know nothing about baseball so it was a crash course the night before while watching a game on TV. We made our way down to AT&T park on an extremely crowded bus, and we got off it to a sea of black and orange! It was amazing. The people of SF take their sports very seriously. We got to ...
