Nice, fairly new and well run. Typical HS. The room was clean and comfortable. The view is spectacular of the inland waterway. When you go out the other side though, don't expect much of a view. I walked the area to the east and actually felt a bit uncomfortable. Nothing happened in the daylight, but I'd be very worried at... More

Lovely hotel. Great room, spacious, and picturesque view of the waterfront. Breakfast was amazing. Very fast internet! We received excellent service from the staff throughout the stay. Made our weekend trip perfect. Will return anytime we are in the Oakland area without hesitation.

We've been Hilton/HHonors members for 15+ years but this was our first Homewood Suites stay.

Good Hotel, beautiful setting behind the hotel, not so much from the front view. The hotel is not in the greatest part of the city, industrial, train, and major freeway adjacent to the hotel. I found the fact that there was no shuttle service to and from the airport to be odd as most hotels offer this service. We would've... More

We didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel, so we didn't capitalize on the complimentary dinner and drinks which is a Homewood Suites staple. This hotel is off the beaten path, however, they provide shuttle service to and from Lake Merritt BART Station, so it is easy to get over the bridge. Oakland has color, it wasn't scary;... More

Who knew Oakland had such a nice view of the Bay? Nice new england esque viewing area and marina will make you forget you are in a major city. Great breakfast and friendly staff compliment a well stocked mini-store that makes it easy to stay on-site. They also have a free dinner most nights, and the rooms are large for... More

Super convenient and beautiful location. Highlights include a very friendly and helpful staff, free breakfast and dinner, free beer and wine from 5-7PM, a hot tub and pool, a lovely view of the Bay, walking distance to Starbucks and a great German restaurant with good beer and great sausages, and a short drive to Chai Thai Noodles, 545 International Blvd,...

Excellent hotel with great view of the marina. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Wonderful rooms and extremely clean. We loved walking along the waterway and having lunch at the picnic tables. The room had a full kitchen and plenty of space. It felt like we were in summer villa. We will surely come again.

I stayed at Homewood Suites by Hilton in Oakland, CA. It was one of the best experiences in 30 plus years of travel. The staff was outstanding and accomodating! I stay at other Hilton properties, but nothing compares to the folks at this facility. Excellent job!!!

if you are going to be doing business in San Fran this location is not for you. Furniture in lobby is soiled and run down as is the elevator. There is no ice available and they don't so much as offer a bottle of water for Hilton Honors members .. won't be back for sure.
