I like the location but the service was not good enough

Staff service was subpar need to dramatically improve

I really liked this hotel. I wasn’t expecting much. The staff was SO friendly. The room was updated, modern, and super clean.. comfy too!! If I’m in Oakland again, I will stay here!

Nice clean big room in the heart of Downtown Oakland

Liked the hotel. It was clean. Staff was nice. Foof was olay. Could have been better.

The staff was great. Elizabeth went out of her way to make sure we got the rooms we reserved. Valet staff was awesome. We had some issues with one of our rooms and Adham customer service to fix it was amazing. The Bistro has great food options at reasonable prices. Will stay here every time I visit Oakland.

Good location near the BART station. The room was nice and clean.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable beds and good location to events in downtown.

Great experience. Friendly staff. Clean room and hotel common areas. The bed was comfortable! Food in Bistro was pretty bad, low quality ingredients and I think everything is microwaved. They did apologize and gave us s free breakfast that we did no use. If you don’t want to leave the hotel to eat, use a delivery service to get great food from local restaurants. Otherwise, loved it here. Will definitely stay again.

very good location two blocks from the BART station, and spacious room with two queen bed and a large bathroom

Excellent hotel in Downtown Oakland. The neighborhood is okay, maybe a bit scetchy at night. It is near Chinatown so there are good Asian restaurants nearby. Parking through the hotel is valet at $30 per day. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. My only complaint is that for us it was fairly expensive at over $200 per night plus the valet parking. We decided to stay here because there are not a lot of other hotels in this area and we wanted to be able to walk to the Fox Theatre for a concert so it worked out well.

Stayed here for a conference at the convention center across the street. Hotel staff was great. Valet parking is expensive, but the valets were very friendly. Breakfast in the restaurant was tasty but very slow 2 of the 3 mornings.

Walked to the Bart, grocery shopping and restaurants! Only complaint is that there were noisy people outside our hallway at all hours of the night :-/ Other than that, a comfortable and convenient stay!

My family and I stayed two nights last week. Excellent location: 2 blocks from BART to catch a Raiders game; across the street from a Smar* and Fina* store to buy last minute items before flight to Hawaii. Friendly staff.

Hotel was clean and very convenient. We were visiting friends in SFO and took the bart from the hotel to SFO. The bart is one block away, so it is *very* convenient. Ww will definitely stay there again in the future.

Very quiet room, swimming pool too small, it could be bigger.

When you pay for a brand name hotel and spend over a hundred dollars a night you expect a certain level of comfort and service, this hotel did not deliver either. Rents to rude guests who like to party and partake in illegal drug activity. Police had to be called in at 2 am in the morning because this property does not have adequate security on site. To bad because the location is excellent, but in no way is this place worth the hassle. Would not refund room when I complained the next day, only offered to refund parking.

Rooms were clean and comfy. Only problem I had was them not providing bath towels.
