I have stayed here multiple times over the past two years while visiting family in Oakland. It is a fairly quiet hotel for being in the heart of downtown and the rooms are spacious and clean. The staff were wonderful from the front desk to the valets and house keeping. The cafe downstairs is very handy for quick meals and...

Very nice Courtyard located in Downtown Oakland. The staff was very friendly both at the front desk and in the Bistro. Parking is a little pricey in my view given the room rates but that is the bay area. Both Valet's, Tony that evening and Freddie in the morning were two of the nicest people there. It was just fine...

My husband and two small kids stayed here when we had a wedding in town. Our flight arrived early and they did everything to get us in our room early, with a crib. After the wedding our toddler was starving and Tracy in the Bistro made the best PB&J ever. Sounds simple but he even gave us extra because our...

I chose this hotel based almost solely on BART access. I had an appointment in SF and was going to spend the next day in Berkeley so decided to stay in Oakland to have good access to both (and the Oakland airport). The hotel was nice and quiet. Honestly the first day in the rain, safety concerned me since it...

I was a little hesitant to stay in Oakland due to some of the issues from the past. Oakland is definitely changing. I never felt the least bit anxious even when walking the streets after midnight. I found everything I needed within walking distance. Might have to walk several blocks but with good weather it is a pleasure.

I stayed here for 3 nights for work and it was perfect for that. The hotel was very close to the BART so it was very quick and easy to get into San Fran downtown. The room was slightly dated, but very clean which is most important anyway. The service was excellent and they were very helpful with anything i...

I have stayed here two years in a row. I have had outstanding service. My room is always great! It is easy access to everything. The food and drink offerings are outstanding. My only complaint is the costs. The drinks are on the high end for sure, all the time!!!! The food is good, but also over priced I felt.

Stayed one night pre-cruise. Flew into SFO and took Bart to OAK. Very convenient to BART station. Neighborhood a bit dicey for after dark. Fine in daytime, but didn't feel comfortable venturing out late. Room was very comfortable. Bath clean and well appointed. Wifi in room worked just fine. Small fridge a nice touch for cold drinks. Bed comfy and...

Great check in and check out experience. The cafe is very nice and convenient. The room was clean and comfortable and designed well for business travel. Has a few restaurants w/in walking distance and even some shopping, although being out at night seems a bit sketchy. I would stay here again.
