The Courtyard Marriot in Milpitas, San Francisco

The day when we arrived in San Francisco, we hired a car and drove down to Santa Clara where hubby is supposed to have meetings the next day. We checked in to Marriott Courtyard in Milpitas and stayed for 3 nights. This hotel is one of nearest to The Great Mall which housed a few Premium Outlets.... which obviously was my destination the next day when hubby goes off to his meetings!

There are a total of 3 levels and we have chosen the ground level so that it is easier for us to move in and out and not have to wait for the elevators... since we have quite a bit of luggage!!

In most hotels or motels in the US, they usually offer guests 2 queen beds in a room which make sharing a room with kids a whole lot better! Most of the rooms are spacious too!

Besides the comfortable beds, most rooms came with a work table and a big TV as well as Internet access. Since this was booked under hubby's company, we get free Internet access. In some hotels, we have to pay for Internet access which is a bummer... :P

Unlike most Asian hotels, the vanity table in US hotels are mostly outside the bathroom+toilet... and coffee making facility is a standard thing too.

We like this hotel a lot for its strategic location (walking distance to Great Mall) and they boast an indoor heated pool, gym as well as free hot beverages 24 hours a day. Should you want to heat up some drinks or food, you can utilize the microwave oven located at the lobby.

There is also a guest laundry and free ice cubes on the ground floor. However, not everyone get complimentary breakfast! The complimentary breakfast is only for the 'registered' guest so if there are family members who wished to dine together at the coffee house, they will have to pay. Weird policy!
