“the Golden Rule”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012 via mobile

I booked through Hilton's website as a Gold HHonors member. But upon checkin they did not have my number. No Hhonors desk person to check in with either. They acted as though they were doing me a favor providing free WiFi. And even though I am paying full freight, I still have to pay for parking. In Oakland?

Room is OK but far from the front desk. Glad it wasn't raining. The room is large but starting to show wear, especially the vanity. The tub was slippery and there was no mat. Room was on first floor with large sliding glass door overlooking the grounds. Does not feel especially secure in...Oakland.

Typical CA service level. As a near-native, I should have expected it not to be very solicitous.

Breakfast was good. Expensive. My chair had a too-short leg.

There was too many fees. Wifi was $12. Parking was $12 a day. The pool was cold. The TV did not work. They said we could get movies for free and then added it on the bill. I had to get a print out of our charges and have them remove it. These day hotels have free breakfast, free wifi, free parking. I was not impressed at all with this Hilton. It for sure did not meet the Hilton standards.

Room Tip: Go else where or just plan on paying a lot more then what they quote you.

this hotel is very much an airport hotel...a lot of business travelers, but the location is convenient to the airport and the price is very good for the San Francisco area. Rooms are clean and big but some of the buildings are far away from the lobby. The restaurant is connected to a bar that looks like a converted meeting room. The bar food was okay but the guys working there were really nice and efficient.

Room Tip: rooms are located in separate buildings separated by covered walkways so if you don't like to wa...

I was here for an American Cancer Society's business conference, and the meeting rooms were fantastic as were the meals that they provided! I am a health coach by trade and help people lose weight and learn healthy habits, so it was very nice to have so many healthy choices at meal times (even the snacks!)
Rooms were LARGE, beds comfy and parking plentiful. Close to Oakland airport and their shuttle runs frequently.

Room Tip: It would be nice to be in the building that the lobby is in, but being in building 3 was really no b...

We just spent one night here since our flight was into Oakland after 7 p.m. and I picked the Hilton because it had a shuttle from the airport and a sports bar where I thought we could eat without leaving the property. Yeah. Sports bar was packed with Raiders fans, no host/hostess in sight, I finally asked a security guard if anyone was in charge and he said nope, maybe try the regular restaurant. It was just after 8 but the restaurant was no longer seating anyone. Long story short, a nice guy from the front desk (Charles Kong) offered to have a Hilton driver take us to a sushi or burger place nearby, but we really wanted a sit-down place with cocktails, so we opted for room service, and he very nicely comped us for an appetizer and dessert. Half our fault we didn't know there was a home game, half Hilton fault for having no personnel dealing with the sports bar.

Room was average, comfy bed. It was quiet, even with all the boisterous fans. 10 feet of open wall that should have accommodated a mini-fridge, and of course, wifi was not free. What made me a fan was the next morning, we needed to get to the car rental area of the Oakland airport, and an inquiry in the lobby had the nicest gentleman taking us on the hotel shuttle to the car rental (which is normally a packed shuttle ride from the terminal). We figured we'd just get a ride to the terminal and take the airport shuttle, but he took us directly to the rental area. Kudos for this.

Had to stay here because Hilton Garden Inns were full. Will not do that again.
How about $12/day parking, and oh, you want internet access in your room, that will be another $12/day.
I thought piracy was illegal?
In the days of Marriott Courtyards and Hilton Garden Inns and even the nicer Hamptons, places like this are on there way out.
Front desk staff was very professional when I started to comment about the hidden charges One of the better aspects of this property. My room was clean, quiet, and somewhat modern. Ask for room on 3 floor if you do not want to hear footsteps all night.

Stayed here one night to catch an early flight the next morning. The room was in the older part of the facility and was musty and stale. Mold in the shower, coffee maker didn't work, etc. It was the night before a Raiders game and there was a big party going on in the hallway until 1:00am. I would not stay here again.

Charles K, Front Office Manager at Hilton Oakland Airport, responded to this review, October 24, 2012
Thank you so very much for taking the time away from your busy schedule to fill out a review in reference to your most recent stay with us. From the valuable feedback we receive from our many guests, we are better able to address and correct issues that are brought to our attention.

In reading your comments, I can assure you that we take room smell very seriously and have addressed this issue and your comments with our housekeeping managers, supervisors, and our engineering team in regards to retraining on preventative maintenance and room inspections prior to guest arrivals. It is more than an inconvenience to our valued guests when their expectations are not met. There is no excuse for the impression which we have made upon you. We strive to surpass guest expectations and our staff is naturally inclined to please others, so it is highly unusual for us to have caused this negative impression. We are constantly working hard to be proactive and avoid situations like these in the future.

I understand your hesitation in staying with us again in the near future; however I hope that if your future travels bring you back to the East Bay Area, that you give us another opportunity to be of service.

Please contact me so that I can personally invite you back to our hotel and restore our reputation with you.

Warmest regards,

Charles Kong
Director of Front Office
