I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn San Francisco/Oakland Bay Bridge this past week. I was in the area for work in Oakland and needed a reasonably priced but safe place to stay for the week. I was not disappointed. The hotel is in a convenient location, right off of I-80/I-580. My room was clean and well kept. I had a room on the bay side of the hotel (odd number room). I had read from other reviews that the bay side of the hotel was more quiet than the 'mountain' side. I can attest to the quiet.
I had breakfast once while staying at the hotel. Only once because it was a $17 buffet. Definitely not worth the cost. However, upon check out I learned that because I am an Hhonors Gold member, my breakfast was free. It would have been nice to know this upon check in.
I also had dinner at the bar one evening. The customer service from the bar tenders was great and the food was not bad either.
Parking is a little pricey but that's a larger city for you.
All in all, it was a great hotel and I would definitely stay there again.More
