There are not a lot of hotels (or anything else) in Oakland, and although there is a lot of noise throughout the night from ships on the waterfront and the freight train line that runs right past the hotel, this is definitely a good option. Rooms are huge, beds comfortable, staff helpful and location good with a great view over the water from some rooms. I was upgraded to a room with a lovely balcony overlooking Jack London Square. There is a noise like a foghorn that goes every hour throughout the night which is a pain, but you do sort of get used to it. Free wine and cheese are offered from 5-6pm, which is a really nice touch, and everything is within walking distance. If you like craft beer and/or bourbon or pretty much any kind of alcohol don't miss BevMo, just a couple of doors down.
