The hotel is in a great location and it was recently redecorated in the rooms. The rooms are lovely and quiet. I stayed two weekends within a month and both times had a great experience here. It's a busy place with a lot of people bustling about, but the rooms are quiet and feel like an oasis in the middle...

I took the BART from SFO to the Oakland city center station. The hotel is a short 1 block walk from this BART station. As a Marriott platinum elite member I was able to check into my room early around 1pm on a Monday. I was upgraded to a very nice corner king bedroom 2133 for $234 or $270 with...

Corridor of the 12th floor is crowded with people sitting on the floor, talking loudly and playing cards. The noise has been going on for some time even though security is supposedly going to do something. Unbelievable for a supposed business hotel. Also, the external windows are filthy. The bed was comfortable, but it is difficult to sleep when college...

Dear Bragnelli, We apologize for your recent experience here at our hotel, as this is not a usual complaint from guests after a stay with us. As our security team should have broken up the hallway gathering, we also hope that our guests respect the noise levels, and close proximity of others at the hotel. We apologize that neither seemed...

Quick and easy check in when you are Marriott elite status. Stayed on the 20th floor last room on the right. The views were spectacular saw bay bridge and San Francisco. Food and beverage was at a gourmet scale. Very comfortable and quiet! Just the way I like it!

Nothing but good things to say about this hotel. The rooms are nicely updated and have a nice vibe that most Marriotts don't have. Ask for a high floor, the views of San Francisco from the top are fantastic. The executive lounge is great, staff are friendly and attentive. Only bad thing is they close down on the weekend which...

My business trip to Oakland had me staying downtown. Thinking of past reputation, I was skeptical.
