The hotel recently updated the rooms and did a fantastic job. The room size is fine but with a homey versus hotel feel. There is an entry area with the bathroom and a partition wall so the bedroom area is nicely separated from the door entry. This creates a nice feeling of seclusion. The tv was enormous making a bit...

My wife and I stayed December 23 and 24. The room was large with a great view of the Oakland-San Francisco area. The TV was the largest big screen TV that we have seen in a hotel room. It was very convenient to watch NFL football with a visiting guest. The staff was helpful and friendly. We could have parked...

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times in 2016 and has really good location to Oakland and the SF Embarcadero area. The service is always great and has been upgraded recently with a new concierge lounge and other restaurants.

The most outstanding feature of the Oakland Marriott City Center is that it is directly across the street from the 12 St. Oakland BART station. It's an easy ride to downtown San Francisco - even to the airport! As a Platinum Elite member, I do have a couple of complaints, though: no free water in the room, and the Club...

This is a first class hotel in the heart of Oakland. Bart is on the next block and gets you anywhere in the Bay Area in minutes. Downtown SF is 15 minutes away. No club but a good restaurant and other good dining options within 2 blocks. Classic Marriott rooms. Many with excellent views. I had #2001. Corner King with...

Stayed 4 nights in a high floor bay view room. Since the weather was fantastic, we could even see the Golden Gate bridge from the room. The room itself is modern and beautiful, with a nice bathroom, but what modern room today comes without a safe in it? Also, I'm not a big fan of connecting rooms, as the door...
