This stay did not "wow" us, but we did feel safe and the room was clean. We were on the 6th floor and the hallway smelled very funky... but the room itself smelled fine. It is in a great location - you can walk to many known restaurants, Trader Joe's, Old Navy, etc.

Stayed here. This is a Marriott property. It is nice. Average for a Marriott. Nothing flashy but modern. Close to the bay bridge and a bunch of places to eat, drink and shop. It is in an area however that is not hard to get to but it is not the easiest due to 1-way and traffic flows. I had a good stay and I would return without a question. I recommend to others to stay here too. Friendly staff and a comfortable room! Parking is at a robbery rate as a downside and the store offerings are 4-5 times a reasonable price.

Thank you for submitting a guest review. We are thrilled to see the kind comments about our staff service and hotel accommodations. The parking charge is comparable to the hotels in our area. However, to provide greater value for our guests, we will create a reservation package that provides a parking discount. Again thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. We appreciate your recommendation, and look forward to you staying with us again. Best regards,

First the good news: The new design of the rooms makes them way more comfortable than the standard business hotel. They have installed attractive sofas in all rooms so there is good space for sitting to watch TV. Also good for eating a delivered meal. It was quiet and comfortable. Bad news, service not so good. With Covid restrictions, there are no glasses, only paper disposable coffee cups. So we asked for 2 more for our dinner, but they were never delivered. And beware, the parking charge is $19 per night, must be a profit center.

We thank you for taking the time to post a review. Our team is committed to providing exceptional service and accommodations. On behalf of the staff, I, sincerely, apologize for any inconvenience caused. As the County and State continue to roll out the vaccinations, we look forward to resuming business as usual. I assure you that we will follow up with the appropriate staff to address the issue with the failed service request. We appreciate your feedback, and hope that you will consider staying with us again in the future.

Rushi at front desk last year was truly amazing!!! He went above and beyond to take care of my family's needs. He was very friendly, outgoing, and very customer centric. Too bad nobody knew where he went when we came to stay this time. The lady and front desk staff who checked was in this time very stubborn and not too friendly. Rushi was indeed an amazing asset to your hospitality firm.

Thank you for submitting a guest survey. I am very saddened to hear of your experience upon arrival. I assure you we will review this feedback with the team. Please feel free to email me at Mesui.Pale@Sonesta.com. I would appreciate hearing more of your experience. Normally, all of our team members are very helpful much like Rushi. Speaking of Rushi, he and I worked together in the Peninsula. I transferred over to Emeryville from South San Francisco Oyster Point. We needed additional agents here, and I called his supervisor to borrow him for the week. Again, thank you for sharing your experience. We appreciate you, and hope that you will return to stay with us again in the future.

We were in town for the weekend to sightsee. I researched hotels on Trip Advisor and read multiple reviews before deciding on this 4 star reviewed hotel. We booked a room with a bay view (see how NOT fabulous that is). We pulled up to the hotel and we were immediately targeted by a guy asking for money. He later came into the lobby and harassed me again asking for money. The hotel clerks saw this and did nothing. My husband went down to the lobby later to get a pizza we had ordered and he saw a homeless guy filling a suitcase with drinks from the hotel shop. My husband told the desk clerk and he just shrugged his shoulders. As the guy was going out of the lobby his suitcase burst open and three beers exploded all over the floor! The room was small, but fine. Bed was comfortable. Pillows flat. We would not stay here again for safety reasons.
