Oakland as a destination isn't generally very high on your list of places to go, but on a recent business trip I was pleasantly suprised by my stay downtown at the Courtyard. Clean and a very hospitable staff who went out of the way to help. And a lot interesting local restaurants to visit.

The rooms here are good sized and very clean. The staff is very nice and helpful. Location is perfect - walking distance to several restaurants and bars. Free downtown shuttle picks up right out front. I would definitely stay here again.

For the past five years, Sophea and Pabitra have been offering the best guest services a Marriott can possibly offer--professional, welcoming, guest-centered. Hotel is located a block from 12th Street Oakland City Center, 15 mintes to Berkeley and 15 minuted to downtown SF--convenient connections to either Oakland or SFO airports. Ask for a room not facing Broadway. Breakfast available iat... More

If you are going to be in Oakland, it might as well be right in Downtown! As far as Courtyard goes, this one keeps up to the standards. They are all Pretty much the same. Nice size rooms, with a good size lounge/cafe/business area next to the lobby. Nice fitness center. If you have seen my other reviews, then you... More

Very convenient in downtown Oakland. Warm greeting. Nice decor. Pretty up to date hotel. My room was nice, large and pretty light. Big sofa, comfy bed, nice bathroom. The only thing I can fautl the hotel for was horrible wifi. I was told by the manager subsequently that the wifi vendor was experiencing a problem. I'll go back but if... More

This is a really good place to stay if the price seems good for the area, I like that it is centrally located between Oakland's quite qorthy Chinatown and also various convention center facillities, the Swan's Market, the Friday Farmer's Market; and it is right on the free bus shuttle line that goes from Jack London Square down south to...

A unique five story Courtyard in the heart of Oakland CA. Found the usual Courtyard amenities although a little larger dining and sitting area on the ground floor, which was nice. I checked in after a long day to find that my air conditioning was not working. The front desk clerk attempted to get maintenance, but at 9:30pm, surprisingly, there... More

While the location was good and the desk staff seemed to be trying, the cleanliness of the hotel in general was not up to par with other Courtyards. We got started off on the wrong foot, literally, when my husband stepped in a wad of chewing gum at the registration desk, which someone had gotten wet and no one seemed... More
