Visiting Emeryville for the first time on business. Welcoming, clean and bright hotel. Front desk staff were tremendous. Cheerful and courteous they went through the details of my room, commenting on location and asking if I had a problem and whether or not I wanted to change. Restaurant food was good, nice portion size and staff and service was excellent....

This is the perfect place to stay for business or sight seeing in San Francisco. You get a nice, clean hotel with Hilton standards, but without the craziness of the city and no ridiculous parking fee. Union Square is a quick drive away and The Public Market and Bay Street shopping areas have great food/shopping choices for the days that...

The beds are like sleeping on the floor. The breakfast is way expensive and is what most hotels give for free with the exception of eggs made to order. The dinner isn't all that great and you can only have room service from 5p-11p.

Thanks for your recent "Beds are way hard" review. I am very sorry that you didn't like our bed during your stay especially since this bed was just recently replaced. I think bed firmness becomes a personal expectation where ideally you could adjust the different levels of firms. However, when I did check your room the bed should have been...

Front desk staff was not very approachable, they seemed to be bothered by my questions. I asked basic questions and felt as though they thought I should have known the answers. I informed them it was my first visit there but did not received any kind of willingness to help me further or elaborate on their responses.

We have family in Berkeley and this hotel is perfectly located to reach their house and hit the road for Napa or SF.

Great location if you're working/vacationing in the Bay Area. Easy access to the freeway. Also located close to shopping areas and entertainment. The staff were great and the restaurant inside the hotel serve great food if you don't feel like driving to the nearby establishments

Last week I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn in Emeryville. My primary reason for selecting this hotel was the lower cost compared to hotels in SF.

Generally, Garden Hilton's are good, but this one was really just fair. The location if you have to be in north Oakland area is okay, I'll give it that, and given that most business hotels in the OAK-SF area are ridiculously high, the price here (we paid $235+outrageous level of taxes, totaling $275) I guess you could say it was...
