Booked a stay on the internet for one price but didn't see the rate increased our second night until after we arrived. After some discussion with the front desk staff...we got that straightened out to my satisfaction.
Hotel was easy to find near Highway 163 and within minutes of the Zoo, the Gaslamp district or the airport.
However...parking at the hotel is $16/day with unlimited in/out. Yikes.
Lobby is well sized with places for relaxing. They could have more power outlets at some of the couches, and some remotes for the TV's.
Elite Rewards members are given a coupon for ONE FREE DRAFT BEER or a discount on other wine/beer purchases. They would not budge on this after several repeated attempts at flirting with the front desk staff.
Rooms were nice and had actual queen beds in their double rooms. Thank goodness for that!
Oh, the water in the shower/sink has varying degrees of hotness, from warm to hot and skin-melting lava. Refreshing, yes...but be advised.
Breakfast was standard issue Courtyard fare at inflated Courtyard prices with free coffee for you people around the corner across from the conference room with glass doors so everyone can watch you have a board meeting for some reason.
Wi-fi was fast and easy to log on.
I'd stay here again, but watch the rates and don't forget to add in the parking fee. I wouldn't pay more than maybe $119-129 for a room here plus parking. They tried to charge me $159 and I got snippy. I mean, why spend that much for a Courtyard room with no Elite benefits when for $50 more I could go to the real Marriott downtown and get treated like a king? I mean seriously...it's just a hotel.
