Reviewed April 10, 2013

When our daughter had her baby, we decided to try an extended stay hotel rather than the usual one we have been using in Oakland. We had a very nice room on the third floor, but I understand that not all the rooms are the same. Ours was a suite with a kitchen, two-burner stove, full fridge, and dishwasher with a breakfast counter. The bedroom was separated by doors that closed and the bathroom was very roomy as was the closet. The living area had a large desk, free wi-fi, sleeper sofa and arm chair.

The hotel has an included breakfast which isn't the usual array of bad bagels and cereals, but a full breakfast with two kinds of scrambled eggs, oatmeal, fruit, links, bacon, potatoes, all kinds of breads, as well as alternating specials, like pancakes, waffles, or blintzes. Along with this are plenty of coffee, juice, yogurt, etc.

The staff are very helpful, prompt, and friendly, and there's adequate parking. The location is very convenient, since you're right next to the Bay Bridge for trips into SF, and can easily head down 880 to downtown or 580 to the rest of Oakland. There are some good places to eat around the hotel.

This was purchased by Hyatt and I think it could use some updating, especially the furniture. The mattress on the sofa bed was so thin, our daughter had marks on her legs from the frame the next morning. We complained an the staff promptly brought up an additional mattress which made it work for her. The arm-chair has seen better days and was basically butt-sprung. None of this was awful, but I think there might be a brush-up in the future.

Certainly we would stay here again. The back rooms are closer to the Amtrak line, and we did here a few train whistles, but not enough to wake us up and most of the time, we had the window open at night. Very pleasant place to stay.

Room Tip: If train noise bothers you, a room facing Shellmound Way would be better, but if traffic noise is ir...

If you're traveling on business, do not even consider staying here - no room service, freight trains jarring you out of bed in the middle of the night and a joke of a gym. Who wants to stay at a hotel that affects their performance the next day at work? Lame Hyatt. Way lame. No wonder the parking lot is empty as I stare out the window at my "view."

Room Tip: Yeah - don't stay here.

The facility is everything you expect of Hyatt, all details perfect. The staff is polite & professional, room clean, and well appointed. Amtrak train station adjacent, very convenient. Restaurants and shopping all within walking distance. Plenty of parking, at no charge, and delicious breakfast.

I've stayed at the Hyatt House Emeryville several times. The front desk is very friendly and helpful. The suites are nice and include 2 burner cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, and full refrigerator. The upper flows have flat screen TV's. The internet speed is outstanding. Hall carpeting needs cleaning. Otherwise would recommend staying here anytime. No fee for parking. Easy access off the freeway and lots of nearby places to eat and shop.

Nice place to stay with a convenient location but they charge $150.00 for pets. The web site we looked at said $25 per pet and they honored that price. Pet tolerant with a price is a more correct description

It's the staff that make this hotel so excellent- the hotel bar is great, the price is right, every room has a balcony, housekeepers provide top notch service.
It's just too bad that Hyatt treats their staff like dirt and doesn't respect them. Don't stay here.

I stayed with my family for 5 nights on March 8, 2013.
Based on previous reviews about overbooking and based on our planned very late arrival (1:30am) I was afraid we may face issues since we were 5 people and Double Suites may be gone at that time... NO ISSUES :-) we arrived and 2 very kind persons attending the front desk gave us our reserved room in seconds.
A lot of free illuminated parking, we never feel unsafe. Normal, basic and expected breakfast, but come on, it is included...
About the train, our room was on the back facing the tracks and yes, sometimes you hear it, but it was not the end of the world, perhaps rooms on the front may be better regarding this, but not was a real issue for us.
Quick access to Bay Bridge and you're in minutes in San Francisco :)
I certainly would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: If the train may be an issue for you, request a room on the front of the hotel.
