This hotel near the Bay Bridge is a pretty good choice if you have to stay in East Bay. It's right off the Powell St. exit of I-80/580 and close to shopping and restaurants in Emeryville. Yet, the location is nice that it's on that spit of land that juts out into the bay. The facility is standard Hilton Garden,... More

Walk in and pleasantly surprised at rate, parking rate and hotel amenities. Return complicated by inept reservation staff, toilet overflowing and need to change rooms for 3rd night and room type not honored until after complaint. Maintenance pleasant, helpful. Hot tub area needed cleaning and towels X2.

I was very impressed with the service and the rooms. Although the elevators were a bit of a hassle but otherwise very clean and my favorite white bedspreads. You can really tell if the linen and towels have been replaced. Convenient to cross the bridge everyday for 5 dollars you save yourself 200 or 300 a night.

The lobby is beautiful and the staff friendly . Our room wasn't noisy as other comments have stated. Very easy access off the freeway . Mabel in the restaurant was sweet and helpful. The bed was a little firm for me but I slept well .

First off, great staff at this hotel, they run a tight ship, you can tell. Also, nice renovated lobby area with some creature comforts. When I checked in I got a room high up, which I like, next to the elevator (not a fan). The room was very small and cramped with a desk, desk chair, queen size bed, closet,... More

Great view, nice bed and friendly staff. We enjoyed the bayside trail seconds away from the hotel where you can jog, ride a bike, or power walk, while passing the bright fuschia succulent plants and hearing chirping birds. Emeryville is about 20 minutes (in good Bay Bridge traffic of course) from the many cars and crowds of Pier 39 Embarcadero.... More
