Had a wonderful high floor room with a view of Oakland across the Bay to San Francisco. Watching school children at recess and lunch and seeing the City by the Bay all in the same vista was spectacular. Hotel food service was terrific until late in the evening and the location made the walk to Jack London Square easy and... More

I decided to stay here at the last minute and the front desk kindly was able to accommodate me. I really liked the room, which had a great view of downtown Oakland, allowing me a front-row seat to a BLM protest about an hour after I checked in. Spacious room, with good premium cable selection and a large, high definition... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the Marriott City Center. It is a modern hotel with a beautiful foyer and lobby. If you are attending an event at the civic center, you can't get any closer as the hotel is attached to the center. Our room (1106) was uniquely diamond shaped with a very large flat screen TV on one wall... More

We spent one night at this hotel in downtown Oakland, which is obviously economically challenged. We were "upgraded" to a newly refurbished room on the 12th floor with a beautiful view, fairly spacious king with very nice bedding and large TV. The bathroom was incredibly small! Wow, how do they actually construct something so minuscule? The gym was very nice,... More

Best hotel in downtown Oakland. Warm reception, clean comfortable room that have been recently updated in a rustic-modern fashion that pays tribute to the city. Great bed, spotless bathroom. Great concierge lounge too! Good for business or leisure activities.

Stayed in this location for one night with my daughter waiting to catch a train the next day. We picked this location so we could drop our rental car as it has a Hertz on site.
