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 Mary, Thank you for your review. You know sometimes 4 stars are actually better than 5 stars. You made a conscience decision to award us 4 stars when you know some people just mark 5 because it's simpler. We appreciate your rating and will work harder to gain that 5th star on your return visit. Also, try BARTing to San Francisco and let our complimentary shuttle take you to the Lake Merritt station. 12 minutes later you're in downtown SF and you don't have to worry about parking your car. Very walkable city! Thank you for your time and we look forward to your return

Dear Tava, Thank you for your great review. We totally agree! Next time when you stay in Oakland, Party in Oakland. Let our concierge front desk staff help you learn more about the great boutique shopping and fantastic restaurant Oakland has to offer. At the same time SF is great too, and our shuttle service will take you to BART and then you're only a 12 minute ride to Downtown SF. We look forward to your next visit.

Pleasant by the water

05/11/2018 514JG, Iowa City, Iowa

My room faced the Coast-Guard station, with the waterway (estuary) in between. This is very pleasant (although half the rooms face the other way, towards a freeway, so you must hope to avoid those). ... more

Dear John Thank you for your review. I hate to disagree, but ALWAYS book direct with the hotel you're staying at. Would you buy a car from postman, or a house from the butcher? People who run hotels know their hotels best and building a relationship with your favorite hotel in a city always is a good things. Glad you enjoyed your stay and had a chance to enjoy our waterside rooms. The truth is we only have about 14 double bedded rooms on the City side, and just like all city hotels you can hear city noise. We're just incredibly luck to be able to feature water side rooms as a majority of our guest rooms. Again, thank you for your review and we look forward to your next stay.
