We stayed here one night last week as we had an early morning flight back to the U.S. out of San Jose airport. This is a new, sleek hotel with great staff and nice rooms. The airport shuttle was full with a family of 10 when we came downstairs but the driver whisked them to the airport and came right... More

This place meets all expectations of a first class travelers facility. Rooms were spacious, nicely decorated, with great amenities. Nice restaurant with good complimentary breakfast but other restaurant prices a bit high. Pool was chilly and small.

Simple and efficient hotel, ok restaurant and free shuttle to the airport (5m). Do not expect anything fancy, but the Courtyard Marriot is a nice way to finish or start your trip without putting too much in an airport hotel

We stayed here because it was super close to the airport. This is a beautiful hotel. Very clean and the staff is every helpful. It was pouring down rain and they gave us umbrellas so we could walk across the street to get dinner. There is a Walmart next to this property and across the highway is a huge shopping... More

We stayed here the night before an early flight. Nice newer hotel with a free shuttle to the airport. They also let us take the shuttle to the City Mall where we ate dinner. The rooms were comfortable, and it was seriously the perfect place to get a good night's sleep before an early flight. We would stay here again.

We used reward points for this stay so that may or may not have influenced our breakfast experience. First breakfast was "free". Second one was $11. Pricey for a continental breakfast. We weren't even offered a full breakfast, but it may have been the hour. 6AM. Airport shuttle runs every 30 minutes. Convenient.

They have an excellent restaurant. There is a great breakfast bar that has a really good variety, eggs, waffles, bacon, fruit, pastries, etc. Our waitress, Karla, went above and beyond her duties, she was an excellent server.

Great new hotel. Probably the best in the area. Staff needed a little more training. More options for food within 5 min walk than most hotels in the area. I remember the breakfast being good. Offering local and continental options. About a 10 min ride from airport without traffic. But be warned, rush hour can push that to 40 minutes.... More

This is the second stay that we've had at this location. The staff is friendly, the facilities clean and maintained. Close to the airport, reasonably easy in/out. Right n ft to Walmart so that you can easily stock up if you are heading out of town to the beach. Breakfast is pretty good, but much too pricey. International buffet is... More

The front desk was nice and helped me with my sons car seat. The hotel offered a shuttle to airport which was convenient. Karla B was so sweet to my son and me. She helped me with all the breakfast options. I would recommend this hotel.
