Clean cozy room. Too cold for me to comment on the pool but the gym was adequate enough. Dumbbells and a multi-use machine were enough for me to get a good weight lifting session. The location is decent too.

Hotel is in a great location - heart of downtown, surrounded by a variety of restaurants, easy access from 880, on site parking. The hotel rooms are clean, but small. Decent for a business trip; however, it would be a bit cramped if traveling with the family. Hotel is connected to the convention center, so can't be it if you... More

this hotel is incredibly located. In the heart of downtown Oakland and steps away from BART, the Bay Area's transit system, this hotel is great location-wise. There are also plenty of nice restaurants near by. That being said, the hotel could use a facelift. The rooms are not especially nice and often times the halls are noisy at nice.

Free parking, BART entrance just across the road. Very friendly FD staff. but the room was too small. I like the bathroom amenities, very good quality. The wall was too thin I can literally heard what people in next said (and did). That was really annoying.

I am writing this review while still in the hotel .... the room is tiny - no appreciable closet space - the king size bed takes up most of the room - but - worst of all - the room is next to the elevator and, for $400 a night - I didn't sleep a wink last night because of... More

Was here for a convention, but excellent access to SF via a BART station directly across the street from the hotel. Same applies to access to Oakland airport via BART. Standard Marriott facility. Pricey restaurant. Very well kept with helpful staff. Good security for a downtown city location. Easy walking distance to Oakland Chinatown as well as an interesting little... More

Traveling to Oakland for work, this hotel was recommended to me as being convenient to the office I was visiting. The room was smallish but perfectly fine, clean and comfortable; and it had big windows and very nice view over the Tribune tower. However, the hotel itself has the depressing feel of a 1980s convention center (and it as attached... More

Nothing spectacular - rooms are a little small but comfortable and clean. I went to the 19th floor concierge lounge and they had no food left - disappointing. Bar are is ok and service is good. Price is reasonable - good place to stay in downtown oakland

Right off the BART in Oakland, and around the corner from interesting bars and restaurants. Super friendly (although not 100 percent efficient) staff. They will get things right, although it might not be the first try. The place is clean and tidy, and it's certainly the nicest place in downtown Oakland. The rooms are modern, but the bathrooms are tiny.... More

We stayed here for a couple of work related nights. This is highrise building, and we got a room on the 18th floor. The view was exquisite. Our room was standard in size, with a king size bed. The mattress was somewhat squeaky, but with a soft pillow-top, and I slept quite well on it. The linen is fresh and... More
