Five Starz! A review of Marriott Oakland City Center
A group of us recently stayed at this hotel. Even though they had several events going on at the adjoining convention center, check-in went off without a hitch. The staff were very friendly and accomodating, the rooms immaculate, beds comfortable, interior classy.
We had a view of San Francisco and the bay. The service was exceptional, absolutely everything was handled with a smile. There are restaurants close to the hotel and even one in it. Chinatown is just a couple of blocks away, so there is a big selection of Asian food.
There's also a brew pub and Mexican Grill in the vicinity. About 8 or 10 blocks down Broadway you'll find Jack London Square with tons of great dining choices. Kincade's Steak & Seafood, Il Pescatore (Italian), TGI Fridays, Spaghetti Factory etc etc etc. You can walk or catch any 72 bus down to the square and back up. The bart station is just a block or so away if you want to head to San Francisco fast and cheap, or anywhere else on the bay for that matter. I would definately recommend the Marriott Oakland Center to anyone staying in the city.
