The reason I chose this hotel simply because the hotel in San Francisco was too expensive and the short drive from Oakland downtown is manageable. The hotel alone is better than I expected, huge modern lobby where people can have meetings, also good for breakfasts (not free though which other Courtyard offered in some states) and lunches. The decor is... More

Our family of 3 stayed at this hotel for 2 nights last week. The room was clean and comfortable and the reception we received (at 12:30 am on a weeknight) was exceptional. Our interaction with staff was pleasant every time. We took BART from OAK, so we didn't need to park - the BART terminal is just a short 2... More

We had little expectation of this urban property, which is on the border of Chinatown and the Broadway experience, and we were delighted when we entered the lobby. It is a great space, with a small but adequate bar, limited options for food, and lots of seating for hanging out with a drink, watching the tvs, or using your laptop.... More

TIP: do the valet parking, its worth the money, parking around there is difficult. This is very nice property in a great location, and a friendly staff, easy to reach San Fran from here specially if you are going to see the Giants.

We had reserved a three night stay in the Courtyard; we arrived slightly early but were checked in quickly without any fuss. We had a huge room on the 2nd floor with an effective air conditioner and separate seating area with sofa and chairs. There was a filter coffee machine as well which meant that we could have coffee in... More

I was in Oakland for a wedding and this hotel was where the extended family stayed. The location and the hotel amenities worked out really well! It is an easy walk to the BART, Jack London Square, and a slightly longer walk to Lake Merritt, so we were able to do lots of sightseeing without needing a car. The huge,... More

We ended up with a King and sofa bed instead of 2 queens, so I think our room was a little smaller, and with 2 adults and 2 kids, probably should have stuck with the larger... but it was otherwise great. They tried to accommodate putting us near our other friend's room. Our AC was broken and they fixed it... More

If you need to be near the Federal Building, this is a good location; only 3-4 blocks away. Hotel staff was friendly and super accommodating! They allowed me to check in almost 3 hours early! Walked to Lake Merritt from hotel. Not much else to do around here and staying in at night seems like a good idea.

I am not a big fan of the Courtyard, and this one is even I little bit worse than others I have been. It's a little bit over priced and you don't get what you are paying for. The bed sheets and the bath counter were notably stained. This makes me belive the rooms are old.
