Small rooms, but acceptable
Close to downtown Oakland within walking distance of the Fox theater.
Arrived late at 5:30 for our 3:00 reservation and the room was not ready. There were 5 other parties in the same situation. The receptionist didn't ask our name or gather any info from us (or anyone else in the waiting room) when we arrived. We were asked to sit and wait behind the people that arrived before us. After 30 minutes nobody waiting had been taken care of so we went up and told them we had a reservation and gave our name. We were given the same answer. We went to a nearby restaurant and came back an hour later...then our room was ready. They clearly needed a more caring/knowledgeable person working the front desk.
Everything we needed
Very clean, comfortable accommodations. Great central downtown location for business. Nice hot breakfast included. Good value.
Location / Distance to City Center was great.
The room was a bit small.
