When you're checking for Oakland lodging close to the airport or downtown, consider Executive Inn, a waterfront hotel with luxurious suites located in the heart of the San Francisco, California region. 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 Inn is your ideal lodging choice in the Bay Area. 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.
"The staff is great and amazing value for great rooms with a view" - I live in Oakland, but wanted to find an affordable hotel for when my mom was visiting so she and I could each have a comfy bed for her stay. She's unfortunately a smoker so I also wanted a place where she could go out and smoke and we not have to be tortured with the smell of a smoking room.
When I called Executive Inn and Suites, the nice gentleman gave us a room on the lower level for a better price than the deal online that offered only rod side rooms. We were right on the water!! She loved it. After the first night of the FREE nice wines and snacks, I was introduced to the front desk manager, Bradley. He was incredibly nice and accommodating.
After a night or two I decided to extend our stay as my mom was really enjoying staying there. I saw Bradley and inquired about availability. Not only did he UPGRADE us to a suite with two kings and a nice balcony view, but he gave it to us for the same discounted rate as our smaller hotel room!! AND we didn't have to check out until 2pm. Also, he went out of his way to make sure we could watch the OU/OSU game (we're Okies) in the bar area. The bartender was a pretty funny guy and made sure we were cared for. Bradley and his staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was enjoyable. I look forward to staying here again...and man...I miss the free wine and cheese!
Room Tip: If you stay here, definitely go for a suite on the water...the little extra $ is well worth it. November 2011 TripAdvisor guest.
