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...

I really enjoyed the Oakland Marriott City Center. The room was very pleasant and comfortable. The staff was quite friendly.

This hotel is what you would expect. It is clean and comfortable but there are no frills. There was a long wait to check in and the valet wasn't very attentive. I had to chase them down to check in my car and get it back. My room was fine and I had a view of the bay. The room...

The hotel recently updated the rooms and did a fantastic job. The room size is fine but with a homey versus hotel feel. There is an entry area with the bathroom and a partition wall so the bedroom area is nicely separated from the door entry. This creates a nice feeling of seclusion. The tv was enormous making a bit...
