A very nice, modern hotel, very convenient to the airport. The free shuttle from/to the airport was a welcome bonus. Reception staff were friendly & helpful, common areas were very attractive, the rooms were comfortable, attractive and quiet. To me this hotel is on a par with a good airport hotel in the US.

The staff made us feel welcome and made us very comfortable. Jennifer is the best housekeeping staff person we have ever had. The location is excellent, near the Multiplaza shopping center, Avenida Escazu and the CIMA medical center. The hotel is surrounded by many restaurants with a Starbucks across the parking lot.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Quiet location. Clean and large rooms. Great food in the lobby bar. Nice restaurants within a two minute walk. About 15 minutes away from the airport depending on traffic. The mall is right across the street too!

Breakfast was a treat, we were attended too by Fanny, she is charming. The room was spacious, the housekeeping performance varied over the seven day stay, but the staff were pleasant. The hotel is next to many restaurants, a pub with live music and close to the Multiplaza shopping center (transport provided to and fro by the hotel).

This hotel met our needs well, and was a good Hotel by all means, but it could have been better. We paid a little extra to have a balcony, but when we got to our room, our balcony faced a wall! They let us change rooms, but we ended up in a smaller one, and they didn't give us a discount or anything. It honestly put me in mind of a Super8 Motel here in Canada, and there's nothing wrong with that, but the price sure didn't reflect the quality. The only thing this hotel does have going for it is L... Read more

I arrived at this courtyard with my 5 children. When I got to my room my youngest started to feel very sick. I called the front desk to ask where the pharmacy was located and the guy on the phone asked if i knew exactly what I needed. I sad yes and he offered to run go get it and deliver it to me so I wouldn't have to drag all the kids out. by far the best customer service experience i have ever had!!!

An otherwise comfortable stay at the Courtyard San Jose Escazu was ruined by an act of greed... I had to make a local business phone call and because Courtyard charges by the minute, it became a US$24 charge... for a local phone call!!!! I told the lady at checkout that there was a card in the room that said 0.75 per minute, she said I should have understood that the units were US Dollars... why wouldn't the card say "US Dollars" instead of no units, she could not say...

My daughter and I stayed here for a quick 3 day get-a-away for her birthday. We knew we would not spend much time at the hotel and wanted safe, simple and clean. We were very pleased.

The hotel was very clean and updated. We really enjoyed our stay. Most of the guests were Americans and everything is in English. I felt very comfortable here but it did take some of the fun away from being in a foreign country as it felt almost too much like the hotels at home. I can't really complain because it was so nice and comforting at the end of our trip. It was very close to the airport and there is a shuttle.

I am back at this hotel/home this week while my mom is in the hospital. I haven't been here for 8 months but each employee who I met then called me by name and welcomed me back.

This hotel is a great oasis in the middle of a maze of streets without numbers, terrible traffic and equally terrible drivers. Once you get lost in San Jose, you are lost permanently, or at least so it seems. Having driven in San Jose before, I decided that I would get a room right off one of the main highways and "taxi it" from that point. I could actually see this hotel and its ochre red façade a mile away and after a couple of wrong exits from the highway, I was there. I had arrived way e... Read more

Being right off the highway, this hotel is QUIET. We were surprised. Escazu is very different part of San Jose and Costa Rica. New, Modern, Sterile! Hard to find a typical Costa Rican Soda for a casado in that area. However, Escazu it what it is. Easy access from SJO.
