I attended a meeting in downtown Oakland, getting off the BART at 12th street and proceeded the block to the hotel. It was dark, the streets deserted and felt borderline unsafe. The room was small but clean. The staff was terrific. There was free internet...More

While I'm glad you appreciated our staff's terrific service, I'm sorry your overall experience was "decidedly average." We definitely try to do better than that! We're in the heart of Oakland's business districts, which is normally safe and quiet at night. I'm sorry you felt...More

I do not recall a microwave in the room we stayed in. The room was somewhat small and there may not have been a proper spot to place one. Whether any of Clarion's guest rooms contain microwaves, I'd ask front desk personnel.
