"Very nice, clean hotel"
The staff at this hotel were all VERY friendly. It is conveniently located, there is a grocery store and several delicious restaurants just a walk away. When the woman mentioned breakfast started at 6:30, I thought she was saying there was a complementary breakfast. But the restaurant downstairs OPENED at 6:30. A little clarity would have been good. :)

"there's not such thing as a free breakfast"
For the price of this hotel I was expecting more. I have stayed at lesser priced hotels and they included a continental breakfast, free lotions and potions, this was did not. The room was listed as "Deluxe", it was not. It included a pull out sofa that would have made the room even smaller if we had used it. I would not stay again or recommend this one.

"Friendly and helpful service"
The hotel provided what we needed - a comfortable and relaxing place to come back to after sightseeing in Reyes National Park. Though the pool was small and the patio area not of highest standards, our room was nice for the price and the staff very helpful.

"Grieving Parents"
The stay was good. The accomodations were very good, save for the pool and spa maintenance going during our 6 day stay. Restaurants were plentiful and access to transportation was good. A bit pricey for not including complimentary breakfast. Best breakfasts were at the Toast Restaurant within walking distance, although a McDonalds was right across the street.

"Great Location!"
The staff was wonderful and the Marriott beds/bedding are the best in the hotel industry. They even have Starbucks coffee! Right off the freeway and next to good restaurants and shopping. Only a half hour drive to wonderful wineries. For those who don't drive it's right across the street from the Marin Airporter bus.

Very nice hotel. Our room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. Easy access off the 101 but could not hear any freeway noise. The staff was very friendly and helped with a broken corkscrew in the wine bottle situation! Also, easy to get to Sonoma and Napa.

"Nicely Done"
I continue to be pleasantly surprised by Courtyard. The one in Navato is no exception. Nice selection of foods at the mini cafe, very stylish waiting area and the rooms were clean & comfy. Love the aroma therapy they have going on. We were greeted by a very upbeat reservations person and she made our stay very pleasant by setting the tone (I wish I could remember her name because she was exceptional). I love the use of technology in the lobby with the interactive screen displaying weather and other pertinent information. The reservation agent printed a map to the local theater right from the screen and got us to the ferry to go into SFO. Free wi-fi was perfect for our business trip. Walking distance to restaurants & shops. Very impressed!

"gut, um nach san franc.zu fahren, sauber, freundli"
Gut: sauber, sehr freundliches personal, Restaurants und shopping in unmittelbarer Nähe. Gut geeignet, um Ausflüge in die Weingegend zu machen, binnen 15 Minuten ist man in larkspur, von wo man direkt mit der Fähre nach san franc.fahren kann. ====== Verbesserungsvorschläge: zimmer zu hellhoerig, der fitnessraum ist ok, hier könnte man noch eine bodenmatte für Übungen reinlegen. Der Preis des Hotels ist jedoch, wie überall in der Region, nicht gerechtfertigt.
