Come experience the perfect San Diego hotel for your business or leisure stay. Housed in a 1920's historic landmark building, the reinvented Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Downtown welcomes guests with the sophisticated comfort of modern accommodations, while embracing the character of the distinguished former financial institution. From the moment you step through the revolving front doors, you will be whisked away to an inviting and intimate space to unwind, gather your thoughts, or share a laugh and a beverage with friends. Exquisite remnants of the former bank grace the interior of our hotel and mix with a fresh, contemporary style. Whether you are here for business or pleasure, you can expect impeccable service and an unbeatable location in the Gaslamp Quarter, offering hundreds of dining and entertainment options. We are conveniently located in the heart of the business district, walking distance to the waterfront and San Diego Convention Center, and minutes away from the San Diego International Airport. We are also just steps away from the San Diego Trolley which connects downtown to Mission Valley, Chula Vista, and the International Border. Reinvented with fresh decor and design, our guest rooms and suites provide superior accommodations for individual travelers, business groups, event groups and families. Each of our rooms offers luxury bedding, free high-speed Internet and microwaves, refrigerators and safes in every room. After sightseeing or a day of meetings, enjoy delicious California cuisine at THE LOBBY or grab a snack at our 24-hour market. At the Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Downtown, we're ready to serve up what you want - where you want.

Great hotel in a great location, parking is a little pricey, but you can park your car 1-2 blocks away for 10-15$ per day. Lots of the action in San Diego is reachable by foot from this hotel. Very convenient.

While I like other Marriott properties better than are north of downtown and closer to the office i go to when in San Diego there is nothing around them. The upside of this hotel is that you can easily walk anywhere between Little Italy and Gaslamp giving you so many options

Is there a free shuttle bus from the San Diego airport?
Hello rmh493, Sorry for the late response. Unfortunately we don't have any shuttle service from the San Diego airport. You can either get a taxi or if you're familiar with using Uber or Lyft you can do both. Thank you.

You probably could get a personal tour or you can just walk down there and poke your head in if no one is using the rooms.

"Avoid internal courtyard rooms as noisier as well as poor view"
"Prefer not on street side for noise"
"Ask for a view of Broadway"
"The upper floor provides a better view of the city. We were on the six floor and the view as excellent. Plus, it was quiet."
"Higher up is better."
