Our countertops were dusty. The air conditioner did not work so it was quite warm. There was a small window but did not let in enough cool air to help. The rooftop outside the window was littered with trash. Beds were comfortable

Thank you for the review. I am sorry to hear that the HVAC filter was not clean. I will work with our staff to ensure we are staying on top of replacing these filters. We hope you were able to enjoy your new room and the rest of your stay with us.

Clean and comfortable. Lightly staffed though. Difficult to figure out how to get into fenced parking lot the first time. Later found out you are suppose to call front desk each and every time to get gate arm lifted . Awkward system.

Had to wait behind line of folks getting breakfast just to get a cup of coffee and then wait some more to get 1/2 and 1/2. Getting coffee in the breakfast area should be LOTS easier especially since it was an additional charge. Vending machine on our floor did not work properly. But on the good side the staff was very friendly and helpful. Beds and bedding very comfy.

We enjoyed our stay even if it is just a night. Staff are very courteous even the one in charge of the valet parking. If my son will be joining half marathon next year, will staying at your hotel again.

Clean and comfortable

I had such a great stay here last week. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The hotel was modern and clean, the room was spacious, the bed was comfy. There was even a great farmer's market happening right across the street on Friday morning & afternoon, so I walked over and bought some delicious fresh blueberries. There are restaurants within walking distance, and even a little sandwich and coffee shop called Cafe Gabriela on the same block as the hotel, which was convenient for lunch. I'd definitely stay here again if I ever needed to go back to Oakland! The only minor issue I had was the noise from the street (cars/sirens) at night and in the morning while I was trying to sleep, but the guy at the front desk did warn me about that when I was choosing my room. So if you want something quieter, get a room that faces the courtyard instead of the city!
