There are a lot of pitfalls to choosing an Oakland hotel, but this one leaves nothing to chance. There are two sides to this hotel--the first, its convenient location right off the 880 freeway. When you walk inside, however, that side is forgotten. I was greeted by the famous Cameron, who has been mentioned in numerous posts. The lobby is lovely and spacious, with 24-hour coffee service and a good (and free!) breakfast, with waffles, eggs, fresh pastry, yogurt, fresh fruit, toast. Rooms are spotless and really, really big! 700 sq feet!! All of the rooms overlook the estuary, and mine had a balcony. The fitness center was well-equipped and also very clean, with a big flat-screen TV. Really, this is an economical choice for the business traveler, but for tourists there is also the convenience of the shuttle, which takes you to the BART for further exploring and to Jack London Square, an Oakland landmark. I was visiting family in the Oakland Hills, and the hotel was a short drive from there. I will be back! Many thanks to the helpful and welcoming staff!
