In the center of downtown Oakland. BART is a few steps from the front door, which we used a few times. 12th Street station. Very convenient to get to SAn Francisco, San Fracisco airport, Oakland Coliseum (home of the Raiders), Oracle Arena, Oakland Airport (need to changfe at the Coliseum for Air Bart) and UC Berkeley (downtown Berkeley Station, walk...

I've stayed here a few time snow whilst at work conferences in San Francisco. It's so easy to go downtown, the BART is right outside the hotel front door and only takes around 10 mins into Embarcadero. The hotel itself is clean and the rooms very comfortable. I haven't really explored Oakland however there doesn't look like there's much near... More

I am not a fan of Oakland other than for football. We stayed here for business and would not choose to do it again. Truly not the hotel's fault, I just do not like Oakland. The staff were pleasant and the room was ok.

My room had a great view of Oakland. The room was very clean and the staff was friendly. Great location, short walk to great food. The drive into San Francisco was easy. Also, great access to the Oakland airport.

Less expensive than a San Francisco-based hotel, but still a bit pricey--most likely because it might be the only upscale hotel in downtown Oakland, and is usually full--the Marriott Oakland City Center very occasionally offers a mixed experience. The hotel provides a fitness room and guest laundry, which is a boon for travelers on long trips. It sits on the... More

This is definitely centrally located giving you great access to a lot of what Oakland has to offer and is steps from the BART so if you are travelling to see Oakland (or San Francisco) it's in a great place.

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.

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.
