We arrived at 4:00 a.m. exhausted from our drive and was met with a sign at the front entrance, which read, "Sold Out." No worries, I thought, we had reserved our room. Thanks to the gentleman on duty, I believe his name is Ryan, he quickly offered us a seat, water and re-reserved us a room because the system automatically... More

Stayed here in May, was provided a room facing the bay with a view of the bay bridge and the San Francisco skyline. Stunning views. Hotel was very clean, well run, and the staff were helpful and quick with all requests. The Bistro was especially good, hot food and the coffee was fresh and tasty. Would highly recommend this hotel... More

This is a really nice Courtyard - the best I have been too. I am Hilton Platinum and Marriott Gold - and I get treated nicer here. They are just really happy to greet you and make sure you get the room you want. The staff is top shelf and despite not using the restaurants provided quickly and with cheer... More

My stay at the Courtyard Marriot Emeryville was just OKAY. The room was nice & clean and the bed was pretty comfortable. I found it unusual that there was no microwave or refrigerator in the room. Even the most basic rooms should have one or the other, if not both. They have Starbucks coffee in the mornings which is pretty... More

This hotel is exceptional, clean, welcoming. I'm sure many of you have stayed here as overnight travelers. The staff is extremely welcoming, professional. The rooms are great. Complimentary coffee before the breakfast bar opens. Nice stay.

Beautiful hotel just over the bridge from San Francisco. Room was very clean and roomy. Pool and spa also very clean. Front desk people were all friendly, efficient and helpful. Saved over $150 in parking fees by switching from a downtown location. Shops and a movie theater are a short walk away. Highly recommended!

My family and I, recently stayed in room 720, in the Courtyard Hotel in Oakland Emeryville, California on Jan 2015. And due to my previous experiences having found bedbugs in a newer hotel a few years back, I routinely try and perform a very thorough check for room cleanliness and evidence of bedbugs before staying in any room. The bedbug... More

The Courtyard is in a great location -- easy access off freeway; nice shops and restaurants in close walking distance. However, I stayed for three nights and every night had problems with the internet -- very poor signal that kept knocking me off. Also was told "we have breakfast in the morning" which was not free -- basically a Starbucks... More

I was originally nervous about staying here because years ago when I lived across the bay this was not the best area. I was pleasantly surprised that they area have virtually been completely revitalized and is very nice. The hotel is or almost seems to be brand new. I can only say the staff was nice and friendly, rooms were... More

Stayed there one night and had a very nice experience. The staff was helpful and the hotel was clean, comfortable and very quiet at night (get a room on the street side - not freeway side). The bed was particularly comfy. I also had the pool all to myself in the morning which was a treat. This Courtyard Marriott is... More
