Hotels Near Oakland Coliseum - Oakland A's

Hey there. Going to an Oakland A's game and not familiar with the area. Can anyone tell me which hotels are nearby, within a few miles. Just looking for a decent neighborhood to stay with the family. Thanks.

Stay in downtown Oakland or in Berkeley -- many more things to do and plenty of restaurants than around the O.co area. You can get there by BART.

There are no hotels very close to the Oakland Coliseum, decent or not. Even if you found one, the area around the Coliseum is not a place where you would want to put your family. The closest decent hotels are at Oakland International Airport, and there isn't a thing to do around there after hours. Before and after the game, you'd sit in the hotel, bored silly.

The Coliseum is practically on top of BART. The station is across the street, a couple hundred yards from the stadium, and there is an elevated walkway so you don't even have to cross the street. From most of downtown San Francisco, the ride is about a half hour.

If you stay in a downtown San Francisco hotel, e.g. Union Square, Market Street corridor, or the Embarcadero,, you have the best of all worlds. You're near all the activities and ambience of the City and you can go to the As game without needing a car.

How long are you here for? How old are the kids? Downtown Berkeley would be my first pick, followed by Downtown Oakland (Marriott City Center) and then use BART.

If you are here more than a couple nights, what else do you plan to see?

Will you have a car? Are you driving in just for the game or are you sightseeing in San Francisco too? Your answers to these questions will change our recommendations quite a bit.

Thanks for all the suggestions and recommendations... It was just a quick drive in as we spend a lot of time in the Bay area. We settled on the Hilton Oakland Airport just for the ease of getting to O.co for game. Hotel was average - rooms average, good pool, decent bar, free shuttle to O.co which made it worth it for what we were looking for. Thanks again.
