At this time, there is very limited availability at the Oakland Marriott City Center for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at the conference rate, and another event taking place in the city is making it impossible for the hotel to offer additional rooms at a discount. (Our block for Wednesday has sold out.) Please reserve a room for any nights you can to take advantage of the conference rate. There may be rooms available at the Oakland Marriott on various travel and booking sites at rates below what you’re likely to be quoted directly, but the Marriott is unable to hold a block of these rooms for ASAP/9.
The Oakland Marriott City Center will be the site of most ASAP/9 sessions, with the exception of our evening keynote events on Thursday and Friday. The hotel is centrally located downtown, near Old Oakland, Uptown, Oakland Chinatown, Jack London Square, and Lake Merritt. There is a BART (public transportation) station right across the street from the hotel, with train access to Oakland International Airport and SFO.

Several hotels nearby have availability for the nights of the conference. Right across the street from the main conference hotel, there is a Courtyard by Marriott. As with the Marriott City Center, you’re likely to find a better rate on various travel sites than you’ll get from the hotel directly.
Two hotels in Jack London Square are within walking distance of the Oakland Marriott. We aren’t able to reserve blocks of rooms at either hotel but have confirmed that they have availability during the conference. The Z Hotel is slightly closer to the Marriott, while the Waterfront Hotel is right on the bay, but still within a 15-minute walk of the conference hotel.
The Clarion Hotel is just a couple blocks way from the Marriott, and they also have availability for the dates of the conference. This is a reasonably-priced option.
Three additional hotels with rooms available are close to downtown, but not within easy walking distance of the Marriott. The Inn @ Temescal is located at the south end of Oakland’s Temescal neighborhood, and has excellent public transportation options (BART and bus) to downtown. The Best Western Plus Bayside Hotel and the Executive Inn & Suites are both located on Oakland’s Embarcadero Waterfront. They are a couple miles from the Marriott, but offer free shuttles to downtown, and to Oakland International Airport.
Berkeley and Emeryville
The Hotel Shattuck Plaza is centrally located in downtown Berkeley and is very close to campus, and to the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, the site of our keynote event Thursday night. It’s a short subway ride from the Oakland Marriott, and has convenient public transportation access to Oakland International Airport and SFO. The Graduate Hotel in Berkeley is also close to campus, but is a longer walk to BART (train).
There are several large hotels in Emeryville, only ten minutes away from downtown Oakland by taxi or Lyft. You can find out more about several of them here, and we will be happy to answer any questions we can about local transportation options.
Finally, since we know that some people will be staying in, or visiting San Francisco as well, a reminder that the Oakland Marriott is located at the 12th Street BART station. Trains to San Francisco run regularly until around 1:00 am.
