Other than that the rooms were gorgeous, especially for the price in downtown Oakland. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is not...

Horrible front desk staff, all the front rooms are incredibly noisy along the street, no respect for their customers. Hotel is in desperate need of renovation as well. Rooms stunk of cigarette smoke, and the carpet appeared to be at least 20 years old.

The beds were clean and comfortable. Nice rooms, not brand new but well cared for and maintained. It was convenient to have the airport shuttle and pick up from rental car drop off. The elevator was sketchy.

make sure you reserve a room inside the main building, not the back building. back building has no inside corridors and you find yourself in a parking lot that anyone can access. the area is right off the BART, all kinds of people wander through here. I won't stay here again, but perhaps someone else wouldn't find it as worrisome.
