Oakland has been voted one of the top cities to visit because of its trendy and creative food and restaurant resurgence, and its edgy arts scene. Discover it all at our waterfront Oakland hotel location just off the 880 Freeway. We are also very close to a number of Universities and Colleges including UC Berkeley and Laney.

We are the number one rated TripAdvisor hotel in Oakland, and one of the few Oakland waterfront hotels featuring free parking, free Internet, free shuttle service and a free hot breakfast.

Dear travelguy Great to have you with us and we are so glad that you had a good time. Another dining option is our Steak or Salmon dinner at the sister hotel the Executive Inn & Suites. It's a casual atmosphere and we get great compliments, just like yours. We look forward to your return, but let's make it sooner than Christmas. This is a wonderful area for Valentines Day, check out our special package.
