“Great place close enough to more expensive San Francisco”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

This hotel is in a fantastic location if you have a car...central San Francisco is just 10 minutes away. There are also several great choices for restaurants and shopping within walking distance. If you don't have a car, the hotel is very close to the Bart system, and the trolley to get to the nearest station is right in front of the hotel. Room was perfect for the three of us.

Room Tip: Great views are on the higher floors, on the west side of the building

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Took a small family trip to San Francisco with our daughter, son in law and grandkids. We chose the Four Points by Sheraton to stay at. The rooms were nice and clean the beds very comfortable and clean smelling linen. Bathrooms a bit small but the rest made up for the small bathroom. It was also nice having a bar downstairs where we could relax a bit with a couple of cocktails before going out to dinner. I do think breakfast could have been included, I feel it was over priced but all in all it was a nice place to stay.

Room Tip: There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. I would recommend going to one...

We were with a group of about 20-30 people, but made our own reservations. We were excited because the bridge was supposed to be lit up with an awesome view, yet even though we were told our room had a view of the bridge, it did not, so we were disappointed. Our group gathered at the bar on the Thursday evening & even though the hotel knew our group would be there, staffed their bar with only one bartender. The bartender was friendly & competent overall, but was overwhelmed & not able to keep up. Another complaint is that even though we were told by hotel staff that the restaurant would be open for dinner, it was not. The room was fine, clean, spacious enough for us, except for the tiny bathroom.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. We’re happy to hear you enjoyed the comfort of our guest rooms. Our Bay View rooms are based on availability and unfortunately we could not accommodate all in your party. We apologize that your bar experience did not meet your expectations. Dinner was available in Compass Lounge - we're sorry if this was not conveyed to you. We hope the rest of your stay was a great experience.

Stayed here due to a meeting in Oakland and wanted to grab a stay credit with spg. Wow this place needs a serious update. Was given a top floor corner room. Unfortunately, it had an off smell. Probably due to the old fridge in the room that was moldy and an old hvac unit. Bathroom was utilitarian at best. Sterile old tile and a single fluorescent bulb was akin to a budget hotel. Yes four points are a low price point so the value was good for the bay. Staff was excellent though and offered cookies on arrival. Bed was perfectly comfy too. Breakfast was unappetizing, so hit up the black bear diner in the parking lot instead. Also light sleeper might be bothered by the train yard close by. Have to say that the Marriott across the way looked like a much better kept property.

Room Tip: Bayside likely less train noise.

I stayed in this hotel at the end of February for one night. The location is good with a lot of shopping and dining within walking distance. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. It was nothing special, but I have no complaints either. The view from the front of the hotel is nice, though there are shops and traffic in between, you have a nice view of the bay. You are extremely close to Oakland Bay Bridge into San Fransisco, in fact you can see it, and if you wanted to visit the city but not stay there, this hotel would be a good alternative. Traffic can get snarled around rush hour, but hey it's California. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room up high facing the water.

This hotel was well situated in the middle of Emeryville. It was within walking distance to a great market and a big mall. Check team were really friendly and the breakfast was good. Unfortunately the rooms were a bit tired and are ready for a renovation. For the price I would rather look at one of the other hotels across the street.

Previous visits were OK, but they have really done a great job lately. The staff was just amazing....polite, friendly, (without being overwhelming, but still very outgoing...perfect). The room is a standard Four Points, but I have to just commend the staff. Everyone I met was outgoing and downright genuinely concerned that I was comfortable, and enjoyed the property. Very well done!!!

Didn't try the pool (a little chilly for that). Free parking is convenient and appreciated. Great location just off the freeway and across the street (walkable) to a lot of very good shopping (and a really nice Trader Joes).
