Very positive experience with this hotel and its facilities. The rooms are clean, modern and large. Beds are great and there was free coffee available, but they charge for the water ($6 the bottle). Polite staff, helpful and friendly. The check-in/check-out process was perfect: Quick and efficient. There is a very close Bart Station nearby and is a great option...

Overall, it was a nice hotel to stay on my business trip to Oakland. The service was very good with very easy check-in and check-out. The room was clean and comfortable.

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 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.

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.
