Convenient and comfy

Opted to stay in Oakland rather than the heart of San Fran because my primary reason for being in town was a concert at the Fox. This hotel was (and is) perfect for that - 8 mins walk from the theater - and in terms of Oakland's "reputation", the Courtyard (and walk to Fox) is an area that's just fine. Being across the bay, here, is no inconvenience at all in terms of SF activities; there's a BART station one block away, and the heart of SF is $3.30 and about 15 mins away. Room was spacious and had the comfiest bed I have ever slept in. Lacks somewhere you'd really want to have breakfast (there's something like a Starbucks adjacent to the lobby), but Rudy's on Telegraph is unbeatable anyway!

For fantastic food and friendly staff, head north on Broadway and veer left onto Telegraph for Rudy's Can't Fail Diner, next to Fox Theater. Great choice, great value, and (rare in the U.S.) plenty of Veg & Vegan options, in a fresh & happenin' 'old style' (yet moderned-up) diner. HIGHLY recommended.

Very convenient

Hotel was clean and very convenient. We were visiting friends in SFO and took the bart from the hotel to SFO. The bart is one block away, so it is *very* convenient. Ww will definitely stay there again in the future.

Worst Experience Ever

When you pay for a brand name hotel and spend over a hundred dollars a night you expect a certain level of comfort and service, this hotel did not deliver either. Rents to rude guests who like to party and partake in illegal drug activity. Police had to be called in at 2 am in the morning because this property does not have adequate security on site. To bad because the location is excellent, but in no way is this place worth the hassle. Would not refund room when I complained the next day, only offered to refund parking.

Overall, a good stay for your money

Besides being centrally located in downtown Oakland, just next to the Chinatown district of Oakland, and a block away from historic area of Oakland, the hotel offers all the comforts that one would expect from Courtyard by Marriott.

Skip the breakfast at the lobby of the hotel and head a block to Caffe 817 where breakfast and the rest of the menu is simply suberb.
