A solid Marriott property in a nice location adjacent to Chinatown and Jack London Square. Rooms are exceptional, breakfast good and staff good also.

Perhaps the hotel gods were not on my side, but I had heard about possibilities that didn't come to fruition at the Marriott on a recent stay. First, weary after a long travel period, I had looked forward to a long, hot soak in the hotel's hot tub. On that particular night, the hot tub was closed for repair. The... More

I. Was very pleased with this hotel. The front desk people were extraordinarily helpful and even had a fridge and microwave ssnt to my room upon request. The gym here is small but guests can use the larger one at the marriott city center across the street. There is free coffee in the lobby beginning at 5am. The hotel is... More

Our resent stay was pleasant enough, the rooms were clean and spacious, but we were not informed of the daily car parking fee until we were getting in our car at the curb, not so pleasant. Hotel staff knew that we had a vehicle, because they valet parked it every time we re-entered the hotel.

We really enjoyed this hotel in a great section of downtown Oakland. The room was spacious and updated. The breakfast was great ~ although, they don't offer other meals there. It was a fun area to walk in the morning and during the day. Very close to the Bart. The staff was very nice and the price was great.

Such a deal: a couple of blocks from BART (so minutes away from Berkeley and San Francisco), and steps from the hip restaurants/bars/clubs of Old Oakland (as well as the Oakland Convention Center). Great restaurants nearby (Chinatown, Old Oakland, Jack London Square).The hotel rooms are clean/chic and comfortable. Wifi was free and fast. Valet parking reasonable ($20) and there's a... More

We chose to stay in Downtown Oakland, as our daughter lives in another area of the East Bay, where there are no hotels, so we were able to use the buses to visit her, so had no need to hire a car. We picked Courtyard by Marriott after recommendations on Trip Advisor and found all the positive comments fully justified.... More

The outside of the hotel can be deceiving. It looks run down and crappy - but the staff was nice and the hotel rooms clean and updated.

I love this Courtyard!! It was convenient from the airport... I took the airBART to the BART station and walked about a block down and there it was... Fast, easy and early check in.
