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...

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...

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...

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...

A family member was admitted to Stanford Medical Center. I needed a hotel to spend a few days. Unfamiliar with the area I found a hotel I was familiar with. All hotels in the area are very expensive.

This hotel has a good room, bed and services. I like the gym center and the garage space. The only negative point is they do not have a breakfast buffet anymore but it is still worth. Location is good. It is silence even during the day. They have a nice bar to drink something at night and a nice tv...

Ended up staying at the Courtyard at Los Altos for 3 days on a biz. trip to Palo Alto. Basic hotel located on El Camino. Only real advantage was it's location given my meetings. Get a room on a higher floor (inside facing). Couple of restaurants within walking distance

I stayed at this hotel for a week for business. Rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Staff is friendly. There's free underground parking and free stacks throughout the lobby at different times. Its location is not that interesting but very close to downtown Palo Alto.

Overall functional. Decor and lighting very dated and price was very expensive. Very poor lighting in dark room Breakfast is basic at an internal coffee shop. Didn't even have cornflakes or bran flakes. Probably a 3 star hotel feel at 4-5 star prices.
