Spent 5 days here for a work conference and snuck in some fun, too. The room rate was a fraction of all the other hotels we looked at (in San Fran.) The best thing about this hotel is its proximity to San Fran and the BART. It took us a little longer to get around to places we were visiting... More

I cant believe that marriot would not give free internet or water bottles to their customers. This is outrageous!!!! considering what they charge a night, the old oriental lady who cleaned my room was very nice, at least she gave me my moneys worth. Oh and no balcony.

Nice Marriott hotel right next to a Bart station. There is a Courtyard right across the street if you want to price shop. Nice typical Marriott rooms. The fitness center is ok: treadmills, ellipticals, bicycles. There are free weights and a multi-gym. There are a few StarTrack machines that are too small for an adult male (IMHO). Towels and water... More

It's a large Conference Facility hotel but does a great job for travelers. It is a high quality facility with all the needed amenities. The location is excellent and perfect for a downtown Oakland visit plus it is close to transportation to get to the city. The only distraction was the wi-fi at a price. We enjoyed our two night...

Good Location, Good Breakfast in the Club Lounge. Speedy lifts. Powerful Wifi. Close to a Metro Station. Speedy Checkins and check outs. What requires improvement is an overall makeover. Requires renovation.

I stayed at this hotel for 9 nights in August 2015. Luckily I got a decent rate as a part of a conference deal. The conference I was attending was right in the hotel, so that was extremely convenient. The "Oakland Conference Centre" is attached to the hotel. Overall, I would say I was pretty pleased with my stay. My... More

We visited San Francisco for the weekend and did not want to pay the high price for a hotel in San Fran. This was a very nice option. The hotel is clean and well-appointed.

I stayed here for a convention downstairs (Oakland Convention Center). I loved it. Easily accessible from airports via BART, lots of restaurants in the area. The room was comfortable, clean, and stocked with everything I needed (internet for a $10/day fee, bathtub, hair dryer, TV w/ HBO, coffee).

We stayed in this Marriott because of the proximity to downtown San Francisco.
