We checked in around 8PM, we went in our room, it was very hot, the temp was 91*F. We called the front desk and they send a maintenance guy to help us calibrate the AC/heater in room. I guess it was broken. Front desk offered us to change room so we accepted. The room we had is huge, it's a...

chill c, Thank you for the great rating of "4". We are very happy your stay was a great one. We apologize regarding the A/C, but happy we could perform a room move and that you liked the room. Being in Chinatown, we embrace the Chinese New Year celebration, but your right, the firecrackers in the morning can be loud....

We staying in December for one night so we could see a show at the Paramount Theater. The hotel was clean and their valet parking was amazingly simple. Everyone at the front desk was super nice as were the valets. It was raining that weekend and there were plenty of umbrellas to borrow. We loved walking to our restaurant and...

Wonderful staff - friendly, helpful, and engaging. Housekeeping was superb. Room was quiet, well insulated from street noise and the HVAC system was very quiet. Location was next to China town and only a short Walt to Jack London Square. We will definitely stay at this hotel again when we return to Oakland

Quick work trip, good facility all around. My only complaint and the reason I didn't give 5 stars is that in the room only coffee was offered. I had to go downstairs and pay for tea bags. So if you're a coffee drinker no big deal, but bugged me.

Sara P, Thank you for your feedback. As the new general manager (I started on property November 21st), I am working to reply to all feedback. I can completely understand your frustration with having to come to the front desk or our Bistro for tea, and ask that on future stays with us you can either utilize Marriott's new Mobile...

I stayed here on Business in Early November for 8 days.Location is quite convenient to downtown and Old Oakland, where there are nice restaurants and bars.. It's a bit of a walk to the Ferry Wharf at Jack London Square, although buses run up Broadway to the ferry and there's a free shuttle. 2 blocks to the BART station and...

em_be53, Please excuse the delay in reply, your stay was prior to my arrival to the hotel as the new general manager. As I cannot speak for the traffic noise as it is something unfortunately we cannot control, I can say that our hotel is in the middle of a complete room renovation and I would like for you to...

The courtyard in downtown is a decent hotel in a great location. The hotel is one block from the 12th street BART station. Also not far via taxi or car from the airport. The hotel itself could use an update but the rooms are spacious, well kept, and clean. Good for business travelers. The room is good size and contains...

I 💘 the rooms. They are very clean. The maid service is wonderful. The security service is terrific. You feel safe. The overall place is home away from home. The furniture was so modern and the colors were just right for each room. I have family there so this is the only place I stay since 2003.

Great hotel in downtown Oakland. Everyone was very friendly, Dakisha (front desk) and Tony (valet) especially. Room was clean, quiet and was exactly what we requested. Bistro nice touch for coffee in the morning. Will definitely go back when needed.

Do yourself a favor and drop on in. The best mattress in many a moon. The room is 'Tony' too. There is a resturant/bar around the corner and is reccomended by 'TripAdvisor'. The hotel is only blocks from AMTRACK station. Good subway to/from airport about a block away.

This hotel was in a very convenient location, just a couple blocks from the BART. We had Easy access to the Oracle & San Francisco. Berkeley is a short drive away also. We paid about $150/nt, which was very reasonable cause it was a busy weekend with a Raiders game in Oakland & Fleet Week across the bay. Our room...
