On business, or vacationing on a budget during peak season in San Francisco can be a challenge, particularly when major events like Oracle OpenWorld take place (Sep 28-Oct 2 2014 at Moscone Center). Events like these, including SF Giants post-season play--(Hurrah!) can make extended stays difficult to book on short notice. Fortunately, on the other side of the Bay is... More

I came here for a nearby wedding this past weekend and must say I was pleasantly surprised. The accommodations were very comfortable. The room was clean and well appointed, including a mounted flat screen TV and very comfy bedding. My only complaint bout the room was the iron- it spit out water and didn't really heat up right. I had... More

This is a standard Marriott. Staff were great, and apart from having to pay for the wifi I have no complaints. The second-floor restaurant is OK, but expensive for what you get. There are good breakfast alternatives a couple of blocks Southwest: Cock-A-Doodle Cafe opens at 8AM with generous and tasty food; Caffe 817 is good for coffee.

We were iffy about staying in Oakland and unsure about what to do. We've always stayed in San Francisco. But we are glad we chose the Marriott City Center. Every staff member was very accommodating and helpful. The proximity to the Bart was great. They gave us a corner suite that had beautiful views. The only downside was that the... More

I liked the proximity of this hotel to bart and where I needed to be. All staff I encountered was extremely friendly. Only complaint was the old and confusing elevators from the parking lot. Not too bad though.

I recently had to go to downtown Oakland for a couple of days and the people I was traveling wanted to stay here so I went along. I didn't have high expectations given it's in downtown Oakland.

Staff are nice and it is close to the BART. The positives end there. Had two rooms last weekend for family stay. King sized room was extremely small and took an inordinate amount of time to get rollaway after long flight and rollaway was extremely uncomfortable. Loud music in the bar. Lots of sports teams running around. Two elevators out... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for a few days for business. When my job booked the Marriott I thought "Oh boy this is going to be nice." The thrill is gone............... It's a decent hotel at best. If you're able to get a room above the 10th floor the views are nice. The lounge area is just... More

I'm not sure that individual travellers would have the same experience as we did. As conference-goers, our wifi and breakfast buffet were included in our room cost. Otherwise, it might seem like nickel and diming. Breakfast buffet is great --anything you could want plus made-to-order omelettes and waffles. And it's served until 11am which I appreciated. Wifi is free on... More

City Center in any metropolitan city is expensive, difficult to access--this one is no exception. The only reason I can imagine staying in one is if attending a conference and getting conference rates. This Marriott has very small rooms which are well-appointed. The breakfast buffet is outstanding. Other meals are much too expensive--eat at nearby restaurants if you can. Staff... More
