Nice Bay Area pied-a-terre . . .

This is a modern, well-maintained hotel right next to the freeway and San Francisco Bay. If you have a room on the bay/freeway side, you will have an interesting view which includes the Golden Gate bridge in the distance, and minimal traffic noise. The land side is basically a large modern cookie-cutter mall/retail district - everything you could need is within easy reach, but the immediate area lacks character. The hotel is very clean, comfortable and well-organized, and the staff are helpful. There's a small gym and a pool with jacuzzi, and a car rental desk in the lobby. Two things I didn't like: 1) There's a strange smell of disinfectant in the lobby at all times. We finally worked out that it was the chlorine from the pool. 2) The hotel was very quiet during our stay, but I get the feeling (judging from the few sounds I heard) that noise from plumbing and other guests could travel very easily through the (apparently) thin walls.

Check out breakfast options in the mall opposite rather than the rather colorless, institutional hotel breakfast.

Great place for price

The hotel was great for my one night stay and to freshen up in the morning after the San Francisco half marathon. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were private and cozy. It was a great place.

Great Location in Oakland

I was in Berkeley for a meeting and found the location to be perfect for a short drive to the meeting hotel at the marina. The location just off the east end of the Bay Bridge was perfect for easy access into San Francisco, visit to Napa Valley and not that far to return to the SF Airport. Lots of shopping within walking distance of the hotel and the trails along the bay are also nearby.

courtyard

Room nice size and the view of the bay was spectacular. The freeway was behind us but did not hear any traffic noise. We were next to a suite and they were noisy.

Better than in SF

Use the hotel as a base of operations while visiting family and friends in/near SF. Easy freeway access. Good Internet access (better than regular Marriott hotels and resorts).

Good for the price paid

I think courtyard is a good choice for the price paid. Clean room with view of Emeryville or SF bay. Mine is facing Emeryville. There is a shopping plaza with high end stores and restaurants next to it - that makes dining easy. However, I am not too thrilled when I learned that I need to pay extra $9 for parking. I thought that should come with it, but that seems to be the case for most of the hotels in SF.
