Am a regular of the IHG Hotels and am happy to note that this airport hotel came up with the same expected amenities, service and convenience---clean and thick towels, toiletries, white and crisp linens, soft and firm pillows, a wide-screen TV, reliable air conditioning unit and accommodating staff. Since it was a peak season at the time, we got a... More

Stayed here a couple of nights. The front desk was really great and inviting. The rooms and amenities are standard holiday inn express standards. The room was clean and comfortable. The wifi was terrible. Between having to log in every 5 minutes and it's spotty/slow coverage, it was practically unusable. I'd consider this hotel again if I needed an airport... More

Two sets of rooms booked for overnight stay at airport. We arrived a little early and our rooms were not ready but Dorothy at desk put a rush on it and we were in within 30 min. Dorothy was so very pleasant and helpful with area directions, places to dine and shop. Always a smile and great customer service. I... More

Stayed here after a 23 hour journey, and it is perfect for a pretty or post- flight stopover. Helpful reception staff, really comfy bed and a clean room. Bathroom a little bit dated but clean and functional. Breakfast is a simple buffet, but all we needed, veggies be warned though - the tempting -looking omelettes had bacon hidden inside! One...

I have come to expect a very high level of comfort from this chain, especially in the beds. This particular Holiday Inn express did not disappoint in this important regard. The check-in was courteous and the staff were helpful during a 3 day stay. The location was central to a number of reasonable eateries. But the breakfast offerings were among... More

Three of us stayed for four nights. The only bad thing was the view--and since I knew that going into our stay, I wasn't disappointed. Our room faced a big concrete building, but you could see over it to the far away mountains. The room was clean, the water pressure was fabulous. The beds and linens were fine. The AC... More

Beautiful, clean hotel across the street from the Oakland airport. It is close by but NOT in the line of plane travel so it is quiet.
