Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

They've done a nice job updating the property. It's nice to see they now have a lounge although I did not have the opportunity to visit. Water pressure was poor and the A/C would not maintain setting so end up awakening several times. For the price I expect more. Terrific staff which made a difference in overall experience.

Expectations met at this very nice hotel. All staff we encountered were very helpful, knowledegable and efficient. Room was clean and modern. Bathroom was well lighted. Comes with a coffee maker, large screen. Nice view of the city from my room as well. Lot's of restaurants within a few minutes walk, and a few miles from Berkeley town too.

Used this hotel for business, as it was close to the meeting location. While I wasn't concerned about the price because my company was paying for it, if I was I would likely look elsewhere as it seems pricey. Also, I am not a fan of paying for Wi-Fi, its 2017, come on, make it free.

We stayed here on our way back from wine country, to make our flight the next day more accessible. As platinum members, we received an "upgrade". I can't say much for room size, but it was a fun view of the city. We pretty much stayed put,but it seemed there were some neat areas immediately adjacent to the hotel. The...

Apparently, if you don't book your room directly with the hotel, you're not entitled to use their Wi-Fi, which is about a $10 charge. But luckily, I'm a Marriott Rewards participant, so they waived the fee! This is what they told me at the front desk, and sure enough, when I checked out at the end of our 4 day...

The hotel is in a great location and it was recently redecorated in the rooms. The rooms are lovely and quiet. I stayed two weekends within a month and both times had a great experience here.

Corridor of the 12th floor is crowded with people sitting on the floor, talking loudly and playing cards. The noise has been going on for some time even though security is supposedly going to do something. Unbelievable for a supposed business hotel. Also, the external windows are filthy. The bed was comfortable, but it is difficult to sleep when college...

Quick and easy check in when you are Marriott elite status. Stayed on the 20th floor last room on the right. The views were spectacular saw bay bridge and San Francisco. Food and beverage was at a gourmet scale. Very comfortable and quiet! Just the way I like it!
