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

Stayed here 9 days on a business trip. Rooms are small, and the bathrooms tiny, but they were kept clean. Great location in downtown Oakland, blocks from Chinatown and the government complex. Attached to a convention facility. Small laundry facility. Nice furniture, and looks to be fairly new.

I really like the Marriott chain, but had never stayed at this particular hotel. I have stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott across the street, but didn't like that it doesn't have a full serve restaurant. So this time when business brought me to Oakland, I stayed at the full service Marriott. Everyone was very friendly, the rooms were really... More

Nice rooms and facility. Great location for exploring downtown Oakland. Walking distance to several cool little restaurants, shops and Chinatown. Hotel restaurant is a bit pricy for the quality of the food.... par for hotel fare.

I stay here every other week and really enjoy. Comfortable beds, quiet, easy access to freeway, close to restaurants, valet parking is $36 by the way. Second floor bar has good food and excellent service. Highly recommend. Concierge food on 19 is consistently good and fast.

Oakland Marriott City Center is a nice property with comfortable rooms and a quiet setting. The Concierge level is above average as well from other Marriott properties I have visited recently. The only negative about the property is the restaurant, pricey choices with mediocre food. The staff was also loud and rude, lacking what I am used to at Marriott... More

It had been years since I visited Oakland, but I was particularly surprised and pleased by this hotel and its location. Marriot City Center is clean, surprisingly quiet, and perfectly located for exploring the thriving center of Oakland. My room was very comfortable, clean, (14th floor) and very quiet. The view (eastward) was great! I was disappointed that Wi Fi... More

The front desk was awesome. We had a GREAT view from our room. Was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The sundry store had everything we needed for my sick friend. It's in a great area in Oakland. I will definitely stay here again.

A well-run property in Oakland's City Center. Comfortable room, nice upgraded bedding. I had rm 1117, next to the elevators, and heard them all night, so that was not too great. The breakfast buffet was $22 - thought it was a bit high. Hotel is convenient to several decent restaurants, BART and a Starbucks. There's a Smart and Final right... More

Stayed here when in Oakland for a concert. Location of hotel was excellent. Very close to everything downtown. Staff was extremely accommodating, even though we were checking in early. They gave us a map of the area and even gave us some great recommendations for food nearby. The room was clean and we maintained. Everything about this stay was excellent.... More
