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.
