Every employee, from the front desk, to the bellmen, security staff and room cleaners, were pleasant, friendly, smiling and very helpful. I did have some issues with the room though. We had a corner room, which was very clean and updated. There were plugs on each side of the bed, which is highly desirable. Strangely tho, the tray with the...

This hotel is in a great location - just across the street from a BART station. It is a straight shot from SFO and the fare is only $9.25. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of many restaurants, the lake, and shopping. The staff was very friendly. And of course, the bed was up to Marriott standards -...

Was here for a couple days for training at a manufacture. The rooms were clean, great layout, and nice view. We went to the Iron & Oak resturant for breakfast and the food and service there was prompt and professional.

This is a fine hotel, and location is perfect--especially for those who want to avoid the traffic and use BART, which is right across the street. New lounge for gold members is also awesome, as is the gym--far more spacious and better equipped than most. And staff is great. Though it is not always priced in the stratosphere, it often...

This is our choice when visiting our daughter in Oakland. Great access to Bart. Easy walking distance to Jack London square which has some hip eating establishments. Rooms have huge TV screens and more than ample number of charging stations. Excellent bathroom counter space.

We stayed at the Oakland Marriott City Center for two evenings while on vacation. The location is very convenient to BART and many Bay Area attractions. We went to two Oakland A's games and it was very quick by BART and Lyft to the stadium. The room was very large and the bed was very comfortable. We had a high...

Room was nice and well designed, but the bathroom was only partially updated. Boo. No room service, but you could pick up food at the restaurant. GREAT lounge for Marriott rewards members. Front desk staff were super nice, restaurant staff were nice, but not very well organized. Overall, okay stay.

I was able to book this via the web and wondered if the room would be ready when I arrived early. It was! I arrived via BART, crossed the road and was welcomed at the front desk almost immediately by smiling friendly staff. The room impressed immediately as clean and probably recently renovated with a LARGE up-to date TV. The...
