Stayed at this hotel a few times, you won't be writing home about the most amazed experience or the quirkiness but in my experience you'll get a decent sized room with comfortable beds and on higher floor, a good view of the bay. This is a Marriot so it is a standard fare, but we liked it. The rooms are...

We stayed 3 nights in this gorgeous hotel. It is central to uptown, downtown, old district, chinatown, and Jack London portions of Oakland. The hotel is under active renovations, and the areas that have been renovated are gorgeous. We were booked in a fabulous room (#1233) that is a corner room that comes to a point, with both Oakland and...

I was happily surprised by the warm check in, excellent room, lovely view at this marriott hotel. The manager, Anne, was extremely helpful and my stay was exceptionally nice. I attended a book fair, at this property, so the bar was packed with attendees so service was a little sketchy, but the food was good and I would recommend staying...

Well-kept and welcoming, this Marriott sits at the center of downtown Oakland. Adjacent to the 12th St BART Station, it makes getting around the Bay Area a snap. The walk to Jack London Square would be a bit long for many, but it is a short cab or Uber ride. My room w 2 queen-sized beds was spacious and bright...

Good location since BART is nearby. Good value. Renovation is too industrial for me. I did not enjoy looking at cranes on the wallpaper since you can see it out the window. Bed is comfortable. Service at the bar is slow. Took awhile just to get our glasses of wine and appetizers. The member lounge is worth going to for...
