Recently stayed here for a business trip. Pros: Large room (odd location of pedestal sink - sort of right when you walk in the room - between door and bedroom); large bathroom; automatic lights - motion sensored - will turn off after a few minutes; Nice armoire and dresser for clothing storage; VERY comfortable bed! Cons: Just some oddities that... More

Yes, this is an old building--reminded me of many of the B&B's that I stayed at in England, but it is clean, quiet and has been renovated. The rooms and hallways are smaller, but our room fit two full beds. Love the old staircase (there is also an elevator). Because of all of the high-rises that have gone up around,... More

This is a very old, quaint hotel across from the convention center. Paid $159 for 2 full beds looking out on a shaft between all the other rooms. The bar is nice, the restaurant was deserted the 2 night I was there but I hear i's lively on trivia night; Thursdays. The water pressure and temperature was good as was... More

This is a very run down hotel next to the Oakland Convention Center and the Marriott complex. The building is really old and they've tried to update it but it has the oldest elevator I've ever seen. You actually see it going up the shaft through the top of the vents. We were on the 4th floor. The room was... More

An older hotel, 120-years or so. Renovated, clean, quiet, with loads of character. Rooms are small-ish, but high ceilinged, so not at all claustrophobic. My room had no view, but I didn't ask; the hotel's on a corner, so two walls of rooms have street-facing windows) All the basics: good beds, good shower, ... The front lobby staff were friendly...

I've seen some pretty nasty reviews of this place and was quite nervous. But I was comfortable and treated well. The bathroom needed some more cleaning and the maids came WAY too early one day and woke me up, but overall it was quite satisfactory.

This basically a good hotel with older style furnishings and amenities but clean, comfortable and quiet rooms are available. Mine was on 4th floor and was an inner and outer room in that it overlooked an inner courtyard but a second corner window overlooked the outside yard area of the bar around the corner - however it was the dining...

I stayed at The Washington for business. While it was convenient to the BART (2 blocks away), the hotel felt run down and worn. The building itself could potentially have a lot of charm since it is old and could be renovated into something really nice. The room was clean but the sink/mirror was outside of the bathroom in the... More

Hotel was old but updated just enough. The elevator was really cool (and old). Room was average size, average accommodations. The staff were great. Loved the bar- great specials and food. Also had a great comedy show. Very close to trains, buses and a great up and coming neighborhood.

We liked this cosy hotel. It was nice and clean. Maybe a bit small, but size was good enough for us. The staff was nice, but the taxi they ordered for us was a bit doubtful. The car didn't feel very safe and we didn't get a receipt. The girl in the reception got some money from the chauffeur for... More
