I have never stayed in Emeryville before I had a Marriott Rewards certificate that I had to use. So I chose this Courtyard because of its distance to San Francisco and the Oakland Airport. Boy was I impressed. I've have stayed at other Courtyard Marriott's and found them to be adequate but a bit boring. Since Courtyard's cater to the business traveler, they are not like a full size Marriott. This hotel is the exception.
This Courtyard is a great alternative to staying in the downtown San Francisco. It is very close to the Oakland Bay Bridge and their parking fees are reasonable ($9.00 compared to $25 and up in the city). The entrance to the hotel is very modern and reminds me of a mini Marriott hotel. This hotel also has a restaurant/lounge area and a small business section. I didn't get to see the workout area but I saw signs for that area.
The beds were comfortable and we were given a room on the 7th floor with a view of the bay. It was beautiful at night. This Courtyard is convientently located across the street from an outdoor shopping district and AMC movie theatres. It is also adjacent to the Powell Street Plaza with a Trader Joe's, Pier 1 imports and a Chase Bank. There are also some other stores but it's nice to have a Trader Joe's within walking distance.
The room was very nice and there was even a small fridge. The bathroom was oversized. I can't say anything wrong about this hotel. Since we were at the end of the hallway, it was very quiet and I couldn't even hear anyone walk by. I did notice that on our floor there was a suite at the end of the hallway.
Overall, I plan to return here when I am back in the Bay Area. It's nice to have a hotel located near eating and shopping amenities within a walking distance. I wished I would have had the opportunity to stay and extra day to get a chance to shop or catch a movie.
