With the remodeling of the rooms and lobby area, this location has a nicer atmosphere to it! Friendly staff and always have a smile on their faces! The hotel is brighter and clean and organized, I have enjoyed my stay and was well rested!

I had a very short one night stay at this hotel. It was a disaster that I was not able to sleep due to the (1)noise coming from nowhere which sounds like the building is colapsing. (2)And also when I opened the drawer I found a cutter/blade (refer to photo) which made me more uncomfortable. Reported to FD and just... More

Dear Disappointed, I'm saddened to hear that your most recent stay was far from our usual Marriott Standard. I would like to discuss this further as my team prides itself on cleanliness and customer service and it would seem we fell short on all accounts.

I had a very nice stay at the Courtyard. I attended a conference right across the street at the convention center, and it literally took 5 minutes to go from my room to my meeting. The king bed was comfortable and the room was spacious. The staff was great and friendly. No complaints.

Amtrak is within a mile, and BART is a block away from the Marriott Courtyard in Oakland, which sits across the Broadway from its larger and better appointed cousin, the Marriott Hotel and Oakland Convention Center. But the Courtyard, which seems recently to have redecorated its sleeping rooms, shares more than just transportation amenities with the hotel. It is within... More

The Courtyard in downtown Oakland is a perfect place to stay while seeing at a show at beautiful Fox Theatre. It's about a 6-7 block walk along well-lit busy streets. The hotel was nice, clean, comfortable and in great condition. The parking garage was full when we arrived, so don't count on parking there. Bonus--it's right next to China town,... More

Stayed for two nights to see Prince at the Paramount with only a few days notice to make my plans from Seattle to Oakland.

The room was good, looks a bit old but very well maintained. What makes a difference though is the service. Everybody was courteous, always with a smile on their faces, from the front desk to the bar/restaurant, couldn't ask for any better. The location was very good, 2 blocks away from the BART station.

Well run Courtyard with good, efficient and friendly personnel and easy access to the sister "big" Marriott across the street (so easy to get cabs etc). Close to city center office complex and several nice bar/ restaurants on Washington St.

The staff were helpful and the room was very, very quiet. The air quality is a little off and you can't open your windows. There's no room service but they have a relationship with a local take out delivery company, which actually worked out better, because of the choice. There is a fridge in the room so you can bring...
