Dear Claud-Verona, Thank you for the nice review, and we're glad that you enjoyed your stay. A little secret we have is that for dinner we offer a special steak or salmon plate at our sister property across the parking lot. Many people like the convenience and everyone raves about the quality of the meal. However, be sure to stop by the front desk and have them help you with reservation at one of the fantastic restaurants around town. Oakland has a really hot restaurant scene that you should really experience. Hope to see you again soon.

Dear Pathfinder617 Thank you for the review and we're so glad you were here on BUSINESS. Please share with your colleagues that the Bayside is built for business.

Dear Patricia, Thank you for the review and you make an excellent point. Who would expect a beautiful and peaceful park-like environment in the middle of the Bay Area. Oakland is growing and busy with daily struggles, and we sit here, next to water's edge, all comfortable and quite. We look forward to your return.
