Corridor of the 12th floor is crowded with people sitting on the floor, talking loudly and playing cards. The noise has been going on for some time even though security is supposedly going to do something. Unbelievable for a supposed business hotel. Also, the external windows are filthy. The bed was comfortable, but it is difficult to sleep when college...

Quick and easy check in when you are Marriott elite status. Stayed on the 20th floor last room on the right. The views were spectacular saw bay bridge and San Francisco. Food and beverage was at a gourmet scale. Very comfortable and quiet! Just the way I like it!

Stayed here for three nights for a conference. The hotel is just a half block from the BART and just a few blocks from the popular Jack London Square for entertainment.

They staff was exceptionally friendly and very helpful with a couple glitches I had paying for my stay with an employer credit card. They also found me a room hours before check-in time which was great because I was exhausted from the trip. The room was very nice. Huge TV. My only complaint is that there is not an ice...

I needed a place to stay Downtown Oakland close to a training site. I was hesitant but the Marriott was very nice. I checked-in on a Friday evening after a grueling 12-hour day. The staff were efficient, no issues, I gave her my ID and CC. She handed back the room key, ID and CC, directed me to the elevators...

Nothing but good things to say about this hotel. The rooms are nicely updated and have a nice vibe that most Marriotts don't have. Ask for a high floor, the views of San Francisco from the top are fantastic. The executive lounge is great, staff are friendly and attentive. Only bad thing is they close down on the weekend which...

My business trip to Oakland had me staying downtown. Thinking of past reputation, I was skeptical. Very pleased to find this hotel was both conveniently located (across street from BART) and in a neighborhood getting filled with nice restaurants and shops (Umami - has unique Japanese cooking and tasting things) within a couple block radius. Hotel itself was fine -...

Stayed at this hotel a few times, you won't be writing home about the most amazed experience or the quirkiness but in my experience you'll get a decent sized room with comfortable beds and on higher floor, a good view of the bay. This is a Marriot so it is a standard fare, but we liked it. The rooms are...
