Located just 5 minutes from Downtown Oakland's Historic and Business District, Convention Center, Chinatown and famed Jack London Square restaurant and entertainment venues, The Executive Suites Oakland is your ideal lodging choice when searching for Oakland CA hotels. Cross the Bay Bridge to San Francisco, or take the local subway (B.A.R.T.) for a 15 minute ride to Union Square or the Walnut Creek shopping areas. You can even take the San Francisco Ferry to Fisherman's Wharf. Oakland is home to the Raiders football team, A's baseball team and Warrior's basketball team which plays at the McAfee Coliseum and Oracle Arena only 10 minutes away. UC Berkeley is just 15 minutes from our Oakland executive waterfront hotel by car.
My first choice! My first choice for where to stay when traveling in and out of OAK is the Executive Inn and Suites, Embarcadero Cove. It is clean, in fact is newly renovated, and is a really comfortable place to stay. If you can afford to stay on the waterside, it is worth it, both for the view and for the added quiet. I , however, usually end up staying on the city side for budget reasons, and even though it is a bit noisier from being nearer to the freeway, it is still quiet enough! It is situated next to the bay near Alameda Island, with a walking path along the water right behind the buildings. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Most of the staff have worked there for a long time, and some even welcome me as if I was a good friend when I arrive (like Mardy, one of the many wonderful and personable front desk clerks, who greeted me on my last visit) The breakfast is usually quite a bit better than the usual motel fare!!! All in all, it is my favorite place to stay! Park'n'fly is a good option as well. Free airport shuttle--short distance to airport---all very nice, friendly drivers, and new vans!. Airport pick-up on demand! Oakland, California TripAdvisor Guest - May 27, 2010
