Yes the room is fine but after a long day of travel, staff and service are more important. I was given bad info and was told by the front desk I could easily walk from the amtrak station. It was late dark and cold. I got lost. I called the hotel to send for a taxi which took 30 minutes.... More

I apologize that our associate was not more empathetic upon your arrival, given the changes you had getting here from the nearby Amtrak station. Allowing you to swim in the pool after-hours, as you suggested, would have been a nice accommodation. The Amtrak station is about 1,000 yards from the hotel. There is a pedestrian bridge over the tracks that... More

This hotel is more affordable, but probably just as nice as a similar category hotel in the middle of SF. Parking is inexpensive, compared to hotels in San Fran proper. The service was very good and the room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is located is in the middle of a commercial/ retail area and seems very safe. It's... More

Check in was quick and friendly. The card exit to the parking lot was a PIA but they took the parking charge off our bill so HOORAY! Pretty Bay View with NO traffic noise. Walking distance to some nice shopping and a couple decent restaurants (California Pizza Kitchen and Elephant Bar). Overall a nice stay and we'd stay there again.

Stayed in the Courtyard in Emeryville in March 2015. The hotel is in the middle of a remodel, so there's a little construction work going on. The hotel is in an area with lots of mid-range hotels, restaurants and shops. So the location is good if you want to go for a walk at the end of the day and... More

I was on the 8th floor and it was completely remodeled and was very nice. it was also surprisingly quiet even though there were 2 busloads of high school students there at the same time. It was either VERY well insulated or those kids were VERY well behaved. They looked exhausted the next morning so I'm opting for insulation...Service was... More

As a Platinum member with Marriott I stay in a TON of CYs. This specific one is located right across the street from an outdoor mall with restaurants and a movie theater. The hotel is undergoing a remodel but that did not cause an issue at all. The rooms are very modern with USB charging ports by the bed! Clean,... More

We stayed in one of the renovated rooms on the 9th floor facing the bay, which had great views. I was initially concerned about road noise but we didn't experience any road noise issues. The front desk staff helped us to check in early even though we offered to come back later, they insisted we stay until they found a... More

The location of this Courtyard Marriott was great. Just minutes from the airport. and across from a nice mall. Would stay again. We visit our son frequntly in Oakland. Liked this hotel the best. Our son pickedus up for dinner and site seeing. A rental car would be needed since Bart is too far away to walk and bus transportation... More

we were very disappointed with this Courtyard. First, when we checked in at 10 PM, we were put in a newly renovated room where the a/c didn't work and had to move. We were then put in a room directly across from construction, which started at 8 AM even though it was not supposed to start until 9 AM, so... More

Thank you for staying with us. I am sorry to hear you experienced so many problems. I apologize that our contractor made noise at 8am, when our agreement is to be quiet until at least 9am on weekdays and 10am on weekends. Yoru feedback on the fitness room is helpful. We will fix that TV and the earplug connection on... More
