“Loved the staff, loved the hotel, loved the stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

You really cant beat the location for a stay in the Oakland Area.
On the water, nice view, wonderful stay.
Carlos Rosales and Connie were very accomodating. They made sure to help us fine tune our stay and we opted to upgrade to a better room (reasonable prices make everything possible!) and we enjoyed our stay even more!
Breakfast included. Near Jack London Square. Everett and Jones was incredible!

Room Tip: Choose a water view for the best experience!

We decided on this hotel because it is pet friendly, has suites with full kitchens and is on the waterfront in Oakland. Homewood Suites has exceeded our expectations. The staff is terrific, friendly and genuinely interested in making your stay as perfect as can be. The suites are very clean with lovely furnishings and the grounds are beautiful. Location is ideal. Breakfeasts and evening meals are complimentary including wine and beer and are delicious! Fresh everything is available. I can't say enough about this place. We are spending 4 days here, looking after our 5 year old granddaughter, who lives 10 minutes away - in a 'no dogs allowed' apartment, so finding a place suitable for looking after her during the day which is close by was a last minute challenge we were not certain we could deal with. Thank you Homewood Suites for making it so easy!! We will be back...

I have made 4-5 trips to Oakland and have special needs. Cindy and Connie have been amazing in helping with my special needs. The food in the morning is great. The shuttle is a great resource. I cannot say enough for the rooms which are clean. the bed is so comfortable. The Internet is free. It has been a great find!

We have stayed at this hotel every 3 weeks for 2 nights each stay, since August of 2012. We tried several other Hilton Hotels in the San Francisco- Oakland area- This is by FAR the place to stay!

The location is great no matter what direction you are going- easy on and off the freeway. Being next to the bay is wonderful- even a city side room. There's a boardwalk with benches and little private areas along the water. It's clean, and the guests AND the staff are friendly- but better still... They are HAPPY- not just being nice to you because it's their job:-) a Huge plus. It's relaxed. The breakfast is good , with several choices.

We have stayed here enough that there have occasionally been issues or problems... The best part is they acknowledge them, fix them and make sure you are happy and comfortable.

This hotel has the "BEST" front desk staff We have ever encountered! No question about it!! And they are empowered to deal with issues :-) and they do.

There is one very special front desk person... Her name is Ron- if you are so lucky as to check in when she's there you will agree- she's fabulous! She makes you feel "special". We come from Northern CA every 3 weeks because my husband has cancer and is in a clinical trial- after a VERY long trip and infusion all the next day- we come back here to little things she has done for us that just melts away the stress. If she were to go to a different hotel to work ... We would have to follow her :-) as much as we love this hotel!

You can't go wrong here, unless you aren't possible to please:-) they have everything you could ever want! We highly recommend Homewood Suites at the Oakland Waterfront!!

Stayed here on a recent visit to Oakland. The room was clean, and the view of the harbor was lovely. They serve a great breakfast, which you can eat outside when the weather permits. Staff is friendly. Met all my needs.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the harbor. I believe this is the odd numbers.

Friendly staff, free food is better then your average hotel's free food and first rate service. It located within easy driving distance to Jack London Square, Downtown Oakland and Alameda. Short jaunt to Lake Merritt park and the BART. A very relaxing place for a business traveler to come back too after work.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get a room on the waterfront side. The views is absolutely worth it.
