I read the previous reviews, and like most times some of the reviews are overdone. Maybe someone had a minor problem and blew up Tripadvisor over it. My experience is very positive. First, I am driving a tourbus. The folks in valet bent over backwards to make sure I had a secure parking space for the evening. Second, every employee... More

This place has nice clean rooms, we had three rooms and they were all in very good shape. Not 5-star clean, but very clean and (most likely) recently remodeled. There is a full bar and restaurant, with room service. It's location in Downtown Oakland puts you near several places to eat, drink and visit. Access to the BART (Bay Area... More

Good place to stay in downtown Oakland. Large convention type hotel and could be somewhat too big for some people. Walking distance to several restaurants in the area, but thought there would be more. Good customer service at the front desk and the rooms were comfortable but found that I could hear the cleaning people next door and the tv... More

The hotel is situated not far from the nearest Fwy. Parking is available for a daily fee, but not as expensive as expected ($6). The lobby is pleasant and a convenient shop is there. The elevators are roomy and fast. The room was nice and clean, with the bathroom actually a pretty good size. My room was on the 8th... More

Nice hotel within walking distance to many restaurants. There is a farmers market on weekends right outside the hotel. Breakfast is expensive for what you get but that's how it goes in most hotels. There is a fridge in your room and a Smart & Final across the street so...stock up! Self park is behind the hotel in the parking... More

I stayed at this Marriott Oakland property a few years ago for a conference, and was not impressed at all. However due to business, I have to return to Oakland for a night, and this hotel has definitely gone through an extensive renovations. The lobby was brighter and more welcoming. The staffs were cheerful and efficient. As a gold elite,... More

We stayed at the City Center Marriott for three nights this past week, checking in on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and departing on Friday. Our Platinum Elite status got us a great corner room on a high floor with a terrific view out to the Golden Gate. The room was very comfortable, but the bathroom is, like in many older... More

Both the hotel and restaurant in the hotel are pretty good, whereas the services are excellent. The things that are missing are that the location is really suboptimal -- I actually felt unsafe at times. The rooms are good, not the quietest that I've ever encountered, but tired and in need of an update. A reasonable place to stay for... More

I love this hotel. I have stayed here numerous times and each time the staff is courteous, rooms are clean (although they are small) and the views of SF are great. The bar on the second floor also has a lot of Gluten-Free options. Near BART and the Ferry Terminal. Dining options nearby are terrific. Two disappointing factors, no free... More

Stayed at this hotel for one night in November and really enjoyed the service the staff provided. Comfortable bed in the business suite, spacious, clean, easy access to the Bart Station, close to all the restaurants on the waterfront. Great front desk staff-polite and courteous. Highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a change from downtown San Francisco.... More
