Just a minute off the freeway and surrounded by fabulous shopping. Lots of places to eat as well. Made for a great home base for a business trip. The room itself was a little weird though - the bed faced the window, while most other hotels have the bed facing a wall. Looks like they are doing some renovations in... More

Pros: - Updated property (the lobby received more love than the rooms) - Fairly good food for a Courtyard - Location near lots of shopping and restaurants (mass merchants) Cons: - Small gym - Nearby train tracks can be bothersome

Jeff G, General Manager at Courtyard by Marriott Oakland Emeryville, responded to this review

Thank you for staying at our hotel and for the nice comments about our location and cleanliness. About the train tracks, a commute in the northwest direction on Emeryville surface streets may be blocked by a long, slow train. A slight detour by turning right from our driveway includes a bridge over the train tracks. Train noise should not be... More

Stayed @ Courtyard in Emeryville, Ca for 3 weeks between August-September 2014 on business. Staff was very accommodating, hotel always keep clean. Hotel can get very busy on weekends, Hertz car rental within the hotel but lines can be long at most times. Hotel is convenient to Highway and Shopping Center, would definitely recommend this hotel for your stay.

We were not there for vacation, had a family emergency to attend to, but the visit at the hotel was nice and comfortable. I wish Courtyard would bring back those fluffy comforters, I'm not a big fan of the thin ones, but the bed and pillows made it up. One Bistro staff member was not too friendly. Ordering my morning...

We needed a place to stay in the Berkeley-Emeryville area for an early morning commitment. We found the property, location and amenities to be perfectly adequate for our purposes. Although we had a room facing the freeway, we did not hear freeway noise, just the noise of the coke machine across the hall (could not have been louder.) The bed... More

Thank you for this nice review, which recognizes some of our positive aspects but also makes some great suggestions. We will do something to quiet the soda machines, perhaps a ‘cushion’ to quiet the landing of dispensed bottles. Make up mirrors are being added during our guest room renovation, which is happening now through early April. We’ll finish one floor... More

I found a can of leftover "premium lubricant" between the bed and the bedskirt, there were hairs in the shower, and one of the "glasses" left was completely sticky. Not so clean. the other aspects ere fine, staff was nice and helpful.

Jeff G, General Manager at Courtyard by Marriott Oakland Emeryville, responded to this review

I am so very sorry about the housekeeper's oversight in cleaning the room prior to your check-in. Obviously, missing any hairs in the bath or any litter in the room is not up to our standards. Since you also provided this feedback directly through Marriott's Guest Satisfaction Survey system, we were able to identify the employee responsible for that room.... More

I stayed at this property for three nights using Marriott Rewards points. The location is good and there is a free shuttle run by area businesses (Emery Go Round) to the nearest BART as well as other places in Emeryville. I was given a room with a view of the Bay Bridge and San Francisco. The negatives were lapses in... More

Thank you for staying at our hotel, for posting a review, and for recognizing some of the positive aspects of our hotel. I’m sorry to hear that you experienced a variety of service issues. All of them are being reviewed with the employees involved and their supervisors. It appears some of our staff members relaxed their standards over the holidays,... More

We were really glad we booked this property. It was not the cheapest, but certainly good value. It took us less than 10 minutes to cross the Bay bridge to San Francisco each day. Plus, we got a beautiful view of the Bay bridge from our room each day/night, and we just booked the standard room! That was a lovely... More

Stayed at this hotel at the end of November 2014. We had a great view from our room, which was on the 8th floor, overlooking The Bay and we could see both The Bay and Golden Gate Bridges. The bed & pillows were really comfortable and the room was quite spacious. We chose the option which included breakfast - the... More

We just returned from a 2 night stay at this hotel following 1 night at a different Courtyard. I was excited to stay here because our previous experience was so positive, but have a few things to share that frustrated me. First and foremost was the Bistro. Without calling the front desk, there was no way to know what the... More
