Had to wait behind line of folks getting breakfast just to get a cup of coffee and then wait some more to get 1/2 and 1/2. Getting coffee in the breakfast area should be LOTS easier especially since it was an additional charge. Vending machine on our floor did not work properly. But on the good side the staff was very friendly and helpful. Beds and bedding very comfy.

We enjoyed our stay even if it is just a night. Staff are very courteous even the one in charge of the valet parking. If my son will be joining half marathon next year, will staying at your hotel again.

Clean and comfortable

I had such a great stay here last week. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The hotel was modern and clean, the room was spacious, the bed was comfy. There was even a great farmer's market happening right across the street on Friday morning & afternoon, so I walked over and bought some delicious fresh blueberries. There are restaurants within walking distance, and even a little sandwich and coffee shop called Cafe Gabriela on the same block as the hotel, which was convenient for lunch. I'd definitely stay here again if I ever needed to go back to Oakland! The only minor issue I had was the noise from the street (cars/sirens) at night and in the morning while I was trying to sleep, but the guy at the front desk did warn me about that when I was choosing my room. So if you want something quieter, get a room that faces the courtyard instead of the city!

Pretty good alternative to pricey San Fran hotels

Pros: The king suite was good sized.
Cons: Parking is very expensive. A complimentary breakfast would be great.
Location: It's in the middle of Oakland's Chinatown, which was fine.
When traveling with kids or a large family, the important factor is space. The hotel had good room space and comfortable beds so we didn't feel cramped when trying to get out the door in the morning. (The room we had was the king suite. It had a king bed in a separate bedroom, sofa sleeper in the living room, and we asked for a rollaway bed). The hotel is very adequate. The staff was nice and accommodating. The area around the hotel is very urban. Parking costs $30 a day, which wasn't great, but they brought vehicles around very quickly. Overall, I would have us stay there again. It could use a little carpet cleaning in some room areas, but the lobby was nice. No free breakfast, but comfy seating.

Great downtown Oakland experience

The Courtyard Marriott helped make my stay in Oakland carefree and relaxing. The room was large with an extremely comfortable bed. I had wonderful service, from the front desk to the valet. I highly recommend staying here during your Bay Area visit.
