My son lives in Oakland, Lake Merritt so this hotel is a great place to stay. The new MC club is nice and new. Great quality of breakfast; friendly staff. Rooms are nice and clean. It is near china town and lake Merritt; thus many great places to eat.

12th floor ( room 1231) room had great view of SF skyline, Twin Peaks and the bridges, especially at sunset. Breakfast is straightforward, perhaps a bit overpriced, but plenty of choice. Location next to 12th Street BART is excellent.

Just spent 5 nights at this hotel and overall it was quite pleasant. The M lounge was great and a shout out to Zak. On the other hand, the front desk seemed a little less attended to. It seemed there was always a wait, even for Marriott Gold members. The staff manning those stations were great, there just weren't enough... More

We found this hotel to be lovely. The staff was great. We had great service from valet, check-in staff, restaurant staff and check-out staff. We did think the price for parking was high $$$, but price for parking anywhere near San Francisco is ridiculous. We like the modern look of the rooms. Entire hotel was very clean. I will stay...
