I have come here several times for salsa events. I would request a room away from the elevator. Parking is kinda expensive. The room was clean and had a shower bath. I liked having the bathtub. The facilities downstairs are really what i came for. Overall, good stay except for the loud people yelling outside, but that was expected as... More

My wife and I spent five nights visiting family in Oakland and stayed at this very comfortable hotel. It is a 20-story high rise right on Broadway so it has a real city feel. It connects to a huge convention center. Free green bus service down 8 blocks on Broadway to Jack London Square. Every person we dealt with during... More

Very good for your job, but the club lounge of this hotel was not useful at all. There were almost no foods to eat at cocktail time except some vegetables. So, I had finally been forced to visit a Subway shop (a sandwich shop) near the hotel. If you stay at this hotel, you need not select the club room... More

Good hotel, up to Marriott's standards. Check-in was very fast. Even though they had already closed the kitchen one day for dinner, they offered to prepare me a sandwich, which was greatly appreciated.

I got some tickets to a couple of GREAT Giants games this year, and stayed across the bay in Oakland at the Marriott Oakland City Center. Talk about convenient! BART ride under the bay and you are less than a block from the hotel, from AT&T Park. Great room, a bit over $200, but very nice.

This high-rise hotel is connected to the Oakland convention center. So obviously if you are there for a convention it’s a perfect location. Location is also good as Bay Area Rapid Transit train stations are right out the front door; you can get to San Francisco and other Bay Area locations, including San Francisco Airport, quick by way of BART....

I stayed here two nights for the salsa congress. I mention that because I didn't go outside once, as I was too busy with dance workshops and rehearsals, so I can't speak to anything nearby. That said, my 14th floor king room was very spacious and had a nice view of the Bay. Extremely comfortable bed and nice linens ensured... More

Stayed at the Oakland Center City Marriott for a conference. Hotel is a bit dated but overall more than adequate, and the king room was extremely spacious with a decent view. The location is excellent --- pretty quiet for a downtown area, but an adequate number of bars and restaurants nearby. A big plus is that the hotel is just... More

At first glance, this is a nice hotel. But appearances are deceiving. My wife is allergic to down. She called the desk and asked for replacement pillows and comforter. Pretty quickly a guy, not a housekeeper, showed up with two pillows (not four, as were in the room) and a comforter. He handed them to me and left. No offer... More

This is a pretty standard Marriott, with an overall amenity level and room décor / design based on typical Marriott expectations. Neighborhood is a bit lacking, but hey, it’s Oakland. The brunch is pretty solid and the staff was very friendly.
