Excellent hotel and very convenient if you need to take an early flight (or if you arrive late at night). The efficient free shuttle bus just takes between 5 and 10 minutes from/to the airport.
The check-in procedure was also very efficient and quick, and the front desk staff was very nice. It is there, at the ground floor level, where there is a comfortable waiting area, a bar, a business center room and, outside the building, an outdoor pool.
In regards to the room, this was very modern, fully equipped, spacious and tastefully decorated. Beds were big and comfortable, and we enjoyed a good sleeping quality. The bathroom was very modern too and very, very clean (I'm attaching some pictures).
On the other hand, I cannot write any remarks on the breakfast because this was not included in the price. Nevertheless we didn't have either so much time that morning, so we had breakfast at the airport.
With reference to the location, it is a quite empty area and there are hardly no dining options. Nevertheless we did see a dining place from the shuttle bus which was within walking distance from the hotel.
Finally, in order to reach this hotel from San Francisco in a safe and cheap way, you can take first transbay bus OX and get off in Alameda, at a bus stop found in Park St. close to the corner with Santa Clara Ave. (in front of this bus stop, on the other side of the street, there is a restaurant called "La Penca Azul"). Stay now at this bus stop and then take bus nr. 21 to the Oakland airport. Once at the airport, just call the hotel so that the shuttle bus picks you up :-)
