I cant believe that marriot would not give free internet or water bottles to their customers. This is outrageous!!!! considering what they charge a night, the old oriental lady who cleaned my room was very nice, at least she gave me my moneys worth. Oh and no balcony.

Nice Marriott hotel right next to a Bart station. There is a Courtyard right across the street if you want to price shop. Nice typical Marriott rooms. The fitness center is ok: treadmills, ellipticals, bicycles. There are free weights and a multi-gym. There are a few StarTrack machines that are too small for an adult male (IMHO). Towels and water...

It's a large Conference Facility hotel but does a great job for travelers. It is a high quality facility with all the needed amenities. The location is excellent and perfect for a downtown Oakland visit plus it is close to transportation to get to the city. The only distraction was the wi-fi at a price. We enjoyed our two night...

Good Location, Good Breakfast in the Club Lounge. Speedy lifts. Powerful Wifi. Close to a Metro Station. Speedy Checkins and check outs. What requires improvement is an overall makeover. Requires renovation.

I stayed at this hotel for 9 nights in August 2015. Luckily I got a decent rate as a part of a conference deal. The conference I was attending was right in the hotel, so that was extremely convenient. The "Oakland Conference Centre" is attached to the hotel. Overall, I would say I was pretty pleased with my stay. My...

I stayed here for a convention downstairs (Oakland Convention Center). I loved it. Easily accessible from airports via BART, lots of restaurants in the area. The room was comfortable, clean, and stocked with everything I needed (internet for a $10/day fee, bathtub, hair dryer, TV w/ HBO, coffee).

We stayed in this Marriott because of the proximity to downtown San Francisco. The hotel was about a block away from a large B.A.R.T. subway stop, so it was easy to get to and from San Francisco for pretty cheap.

The hotel location was my biggest concern for safety and it was actually in a good location within walking distance to restaurants and Starbucks! That said, you still want to keep your eyes open and be aware of your surroundings - it is still a big city. The hotel itself was nicely appointed. But, I had to book to additional...

This is a nice hotel for such a big one. Clean and comfortable, though the rooms could use some renovation. One odd thing: no place in the hotel can you get an espresso or cappuccino. They send you down the block to Starbuck's. Wifi was expensive, so we didn't use it
