What a nice surprise to stay in the Marriott City Center in downtown Oakland. Typically I have opted to stay in the larger city across the Bay, but I was attending a conference in the Marriott and decided to give this hotel a chance. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The hotel sponsored events were well organized and the... More

This Marriott hotel is located one block from the Oakland City Center Bart Station ($8.95 from SFO on Bart; a Taxi runs about $75 plus tip). The hotel looks to have been refreshed in the recent past with redone baths and bedding. The rooms have a typical coffee maker, a mini-fridge, bathroom with a single vanity, small closet. I did...

I hate to say this, but I wasn't expecting much for a hotel in downtown Oakland. But I was taking the S.O. out for birthday dinner and drinks in Jack London Square and didn't want to drive home afterward. So, decided a one night "staycation" was in order. From the moment we walked in, the service was top notch. The... More

I have stayed here twice during annual meetings for my company. Both times the service was inconsistent. It was very quiet both times I stayed here. The view from the hotel was beautiful. But both times pieces of the service were questionable. Last year, I left my computer cord in the meeting room. After going back to retrieve it, we... More

We went to this hotel for the Soccer Expo. The rooms were very nice, and the location was great as the bart station was just outside, plus Jack London Square was just a few blocks away. The service at the hotel was HORRIBLE!!!! Let me just say, when you are in a hotel bar area and you have to wait... More

The location is directly adjacent to a BART stop, which is perfect for getting to downtown San Francisco in only 15 minutes. But other than that, don't go more than a few blocks in any direction from the hotel, or you'll run into the less "nice" areas of Oakland. Chinatown is nearby, though, which is convenient for delicious food. It's... More

The best feature of this hotel is its location, across the street from the 12th Street BART station. The lobby is very attractive and the rooms are what one would expect from an urban Marriott. I found the bar pleasant as well. The only negative was attempting to print my flight boarding pass on the morning of departure. The computer... More

Checked in to the hotel to find that the bathroom had more mildew than post Katrina New Orleans. For the last 2 months, at least, the TV channels have also been drifting. The front desk person was apologetic and promptly moved me to a room in better condition and ASSURED me that a manager would contact me about these issues.... More

We were in town for a conference at the Center next to the hotel so it was a convenient location. As Marriott Platinum members we were provided a room on the Concierge Level with a beautiful view of the San Francisco Bay and the City beyond. Our room was clean and comfortable, however the bathroom was rather small. Staff in... More
