Spent 1 night in an accessible room. The room was very clean and spacious. The mattress seemed a bit soft. My wife sat on the edge of the bed and nearly slid off. All the staff - valets, housekeepers, barman and front desk gal were courteous and helpful. As others have noted this hotel is located in Chinatown and has... More

Good location, close to BART, Chinatown and Jack London Square. If you want a nice hotel and would like to save money from the pricey San Francisco hotels this is a good choice. The area is much less crowded and easy walking distance to most Downtown Oakland attractions. You can take BART or the ferries into San Francisco.

We booked our room with 2 beds for 4 people one month in advance. When we got to the hotel on the check-in day, they told us that they "upgraded" our reservation by giving us a room with only one bed but a hot tub in the suite to "compensate". They also brought in a roll-away bed but there was... More

I picked this hotel for its convenience to BART access and the availability of two queen size beds. And it did not disappoint. Loved the room. It was big, modern, and nicely decorated. Beds were comfy. The sink was located outside the bathroom which is a big plus for our family. Location is great, very close to the BART station... More

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
