It was a college graduation that took us to Oakland for just two nights, flying in and out of the Oakland airport. Our destination campus was in the heart of that changing city, and we needed to be as near as possible. The downtown Courtyard Marriott was well-located for 15 minute cab rides. There was some confusion meeting people, as...

So my company puts me up here every other week so it's no money out of my pocket. Trust me, if I was paying I'd be moving to a new location. You have a courtyard, it's in the open, it used to be a nice place to relax and have a smoke. Well the new management has decided we smokers...

Good day Todd D, Thank you for providing feedback regarding our smoking policy. We moved the smoking area due to the fact that it was within the 20 foot range of two entrances to the hotel. Regarding the dog, this is the first I have heard of a dog in the hotel as all Courtyards do not allow pets unless...

Downtown Oakland hotels are typically way overpriced, but for this night I found a good deal on Priceline. Quick and friendly check in. Nice common areas. Spacious and clean room. A quiet place, although my room was facing the back (on a prior stay, my room faced the street, and it was loud). Fast and free internet. All in all,...

The room was nice and clean. Staff were all very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is the Bistro was good. My only major complaint was the wifi and TV channels. The TV channels went in and out. Wifi wasn't always that strong.

My husband and I stayed here on our recent trip to the Bay area. We found the service at this hotel to be AMAZING!

A 5-star review should mean there's something special about a hotel property, something unexpected. Is that what you want? If not, then perhaps a 3-star review is even better. This is a tried-and-true Courtyard reliable in every respect but special in none -- and therefore predictable and perfect for a business traveler such as myself.

Good day Doug K, Thank you for your feedback. It seems we failed on our service, in my mind it should not matter whether a hotel is a 1 star or a 5 star, all guests should be treated like a 5 Star guest. I will take your feedback to the team so that we can "strive for 5". Jon...

The rooms are renovated, large, and comfortable. The fitness room is in good shape. The front desk staff is nice. There was only coffee and one cup in the room when I arrived, which is too bad because I tend to like to have a tea option as well...but this isn't a big deal, just merely a note. One downside...
