A few blocks from BART. Very businesslike and everything worked as expected. I came for a birthday celebration on the top floor, which is GREAT for a party. There was plenty of room for dancing, and the hotel did a great job on the food and presentation

The stay was nice, and one tick above average, but the service was noteworthy. Both the calling to make the reservation and the follow up to correct a minor clerical error were both surprisingly personable and exceptionally friendly.

My elderly parents and I recently spent two nights at the Marriott Oakland City Centre. We traveled in to attend my son's graduation from Berkeley Law. My mother is in her mid-eighties and shaky on her feet. Although expensive ($40/day + $9 in taxes), the valet parking service was great as it kept her walking to a minimum. The attendants...

Exactly to expectation for a business class Marriott in downtown setting. Friendly staff, decent beds, clean and comfortable. Get a room facing broadway for a gorgeous view of the historic tribune building Also - The second floor restaurant "Level Two" is GREAT! Fantastic food!

Stayed at the Marriott Oakland for 2 nights for a conference and have nothing to complain about. The check-in experience was pleasant - Terie was very nice and made me laugh. The housekeeping service was fantastic and I actually left a tip in the envelope they provided! The rooms themselves are a bit outdated and not that impressive but it...

I really enjoyed my stay here. The service was excellent at all levels: front desk, concierge lounge and bell service. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had all the extra toiletries which I appreciated. The concierge lounge had a great breakfast and evening treats.

I had stayed at this property maybe 7 + years ago with unexceptional memories. Booked it this time due to its proximity to BART [it's practically over 12th St Station]. Low expectations wildly exceeded. Reception and bar areas have been remodeled and much more natural light. Afternoon checkin was greeted with complimentary wines in lobby. Richard - will someone please...

Although the hotel is tastefully appointed, clean, and has good services, I was very dissatisfied with the customer service offered and wouldn't book a stay here again. First of all, after checking in I found that the room key cards only worked after multiple attempts, which was consistent throughout my stay. However, the bulk of problems occurred when attending the...

Nice location, good meeting space. Many restaurants within close walking distance. Like all Bay Area hotels parking is outragiois price wise. The good news is Bart is very close by so parking really is a choice you can avoid. Friendly staff and clean rooms. No in room safe? That was only thing that really bothered me, especially at these rates.

This hotel was nice, staff friendly, rooms clean, restaurant decent. Stayed in a king room, bed was comfortable and I didn't notice any noise when trying to sleep. Lots of places to walk to for food and drink options. It's also right next to a Bart station so easy to get from airport to here.
