Super close if you're flying in or going to a Fox Theater gig. Decent rooms. Finishing touches must be made to decor. VERY kind front desk staff. Beyond fabulous. They matched online rates without question, which I so appreciated. Comfy bed. Minimal room amenities. No frills. Probably the best hotel in Oakland. Be kind to the staff, and they will...

I stay here often (depending on rates, it's either here or a local AirBnB). There are occasionally great rates on Priceline. I have always been impressed with the friendliness and professionalism of the front desk staff. Last night, after only standing in line for two minutes, the clerk apologized for the wait. The second floor restaurant and bar area has...

We stayed here for a couple of nights and had a great time. The rooms are comfortable and the hotel has everything you need.

While it's an older property, they've done a nice job with the updates. The rooms are modern and clean. Both nightstands have plugs and 2 USB ports for charging. For Marriott travelers, the M Club is very nice. It is on the second floor, it has decent views, and it is well stocked with goodies. My experiences with the personnel...

After a late-night arrival, into a smallish room with the thermostat set at 60 degrees (really!), we went straight to bed planning on a room-service breakfast for revival in the morning. But -- upon calling in the morning we were told "we don't have room service, just a breakfast buffet". Sounded like we were in a Courtyard Marriott, not a...

I have stayed here many times on business and it was completely unmemorable. This time, on a more upscale occasion, we got room 1623 which has a sensational view of San Francisco and the setting sun.

The hotel was clean and convenient, the staff was friendly and the hallways were quiet. If you are travelling through the city by way of the BART or MUNI system then you are set up right across the street from the station. I didn't think the neighborhood was dicey at all and felt very safe walking around even in the...

I stay here regularly on business. The City Center Marriott offers great facilities, good service, and excellent access to downtown Oakland and to San Francisco.
