My room was comfortable and spacious and the overall facilities were superb and accommodating of all aspects of the conference. The hotel has a great restaurant bar with excellent wifi and the food was very satisfactory. There

Whoever is responsible for staff training and motivation should get an award. From stepping out of your car, into the lobby, or to meeting a housekeeper on your the floor of your room, the staff is very friendly and helpful. I forgot a charger for my iPhone 6.

Clean, nice rooms, but small rooms with limited table and storage space. But, right down near the City Center and various shops and the Broadway shuttle, which goes to Jack London Square (the harbor and more great eateries). Nice restaurant with good food and great room service! No airport shuttle, but Wi-Fi.

We stayed here because the wedding we attended gave a discount. Housekeeping was beyond friendly and helpful every morning when we walked by them. This hotel is in a rough area.

The hotel is in a perfect location in Downtown Oakland. The Federal and State buildings are just around the corner. Surrounded by shopping, restruants, and the BART is just across the street. The staff is outstanding and friendly. Slept like a baby at night. Wonderful facility.
