Good hotel in a convenient location.

Pros: Great downtown Oakland location, nice rooms.
Location: Many restaurants and bars within a short walk, close to BART station.
Nice hotel with helpful staff. Rooms are an adequate size. Best thing about the hotel is the convenient location within easy walking distance of many downtown Oakland restaurants and bars. A one minute walk to the BART station, and can be in downtown San Francisco in 15-20 minutes.

Hidden costs

The review above gives info. Our major concern was the parking cost-- $40 to 45 per night that wasn't explained by Marriott or Travelocity and was in light gray on the THIRD page of the form we recd in the computer.

Very pleasant and clean

The staff were very professional and helpful for my every unique requests and to guide me around town for food and shopping. I would stay here again! The only reason i didnt give them more stars is because i wasnt "wow'd," but the delivered all that was expected for a guest.

Awkward and unwelcoming

Pros: Close restaurants
The staff is very nice but the room we had with one King bed was one of the smallest hotel rooms I've ever had with hardly any floor space left between walls, bed and desk. The only chair was a desk chair which was very uncomfortable. The room was clean but smelled to strongly of cleaning fluid and at mealtimes the whole hotel smells like fried food, even up on the 14th floor! The common areas with seating don't make you want to spend more than a second in them. The food in the hotel restaurant is okay and the gym facilities are also okay. I won't stay in this hotel again.

Excellent customer orientation and service

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
I was very pleased with this hotel. Hotel Staff was friendly, attentive, helpful and welcoming. The room was clean. The fitness center had old equipment, but good enough to have a good workout. Good value for money.
