Very accommodating and friendly staff. Comfortable rooms. Two blocks from BART.

As we know, the Marriott Courtyard is a huge glossy part of a chain. For me, it lacks a certain personal charm that I look for when I'm seeking a special hospitality experience. That said, the service is spot on and the place is squeaky clean.
I loved the pure practicality and convenience of the Boarding Pass zone -- you can check in and print your boarding pass self-serve style for free right in the lobby. Nice one, Courtyard.
I also liked the color palette of the room -- warm reds and oranges in the bathroom as well as the sleeping room. While it isn't a unique experience to remember for a lifetime, the Courtyard is a perfectly good place to stay.

A bit more affordable than the Marriot in front and the staff was nice. It is a great location, only steps away from the Oakland Convention Center and two blocks to the 12th Street Bart Station (train).
This Courtyard is pretty standard, clean rooms with all the basic amenities. Parking will cost you extra, but they do offer free wi-fi, the fitness room and a small pool.
If you want to take public transit there are plenty of bus lines that go by Broadway Ave, including the free green Broadway bus. There is also a lot you can do on foot, such as visiting the nearby Chinatown of Oakland, picking up some fresh fruit at the farmer's market on Fridays, or skating at the Oakland Ice Center. Do head to Lake Merritt (only a few blocks away) and take a stroll along the lake to the Cathedral Christ the Light and it's amazing design.

The Courtyard by Marriott in downtown Oakland is filled with business travelers due to its proximity to the neighboring convention center. It has its own board and meeting rooms too and plenty of places to sit and meet quickly in the lobby Bistro. It's just across from a bigger Marriott property but according to the staff isn't really affiliated. There's a fitness center and pool and breakfast, but it's not complimentary. Unlike the main Marriott, there's no room service but there's plenty of places to eat nearby. Rooms are spacious and some even have couches for extra seating.

This Courtyard is just OK. I didn't feel very safe in Oakland although I travelled here for years. I'd much prefer to be standing on Broadway hailing a cab instead of on a side street. The room was clean and just OK.
