We were flying out of Oakland on a early morning flight for a week at Christmas. This airport was a no-brainer.
Your car is parked in their parking lot (within feet of the door). They have their own exclusive shuttle (as the airport is ~5 minutes by car, the shuttle is never more than 10 minutes away).
The hotel is either brand new or newly renovated because it was that level of clean you can only get from a new building. It was also very quiet in the room (which is impressive being this close to the airport).
We were leaving before their continental breakfast was starting, but they were able to pull as many muffins as we wanted from the back room to take with us.
Overall, I was very happy with this hotel. Here is the only exceptional exception to this:
Not long after we checked into the room we found a 9mm gun magazine between the bedside table and the wall (in a place smaller than a vacuum could fit). I took it down to the front desk to make sure that it was returned to the original owner (I assumed an air marshal as this hotel was insanely close to the airport.). Received a call from the general manager a few days later apologizing for the experience. I don't fault the hotel for the experience. Nobody is perfect, but they seem to be certainly doing everything to the best of their abilities.
I would definitely stay here again.
