Classic Marriott property in a great downtown location.
Spent a "Friday Night" getaway and availed ourselves of the restaurant and bar and room service in the morning. We ate at the City Grill which was nice (dozens of better options in walking distance) but certainly convenient.
This hotel is adjacent to the Convention Center so it does a booming business but the hotel staff was VERY friendly and helpful.
We actually didn't like the 1st room - it had a weird configuration for TV viewing - and they had no compunction about moving us to a "better" one.
The rooms however, could use updating. The TV's are old and by this decade I expect larger flat screens in all "upscale" Marriotts.
The room was an excellent value as we used a "free night" certificate but Oakland not being a weekend tourist spot does offer great deals.
As mentioned it was overall a pleasant and comfortable stay.
