“The Woodfin is perfect for a Bay Area stay...”
Reviewed 8 May 2010

I have stayed at the Woodfin Suites 4 or 5 times. I am constantly impressed with everything about this hotel. The location is amazing. While it's within walking distance of the Bay Street mall, the truly magnificent part about the location is the view. One whole side of the hotel faces the bay, and the view of San Francisco could not be more breathtaking. The staff are very helpful and courteous - they make you feel welcome. The rooms are great. The beds are extremely comfortable and the layout of the rooms makes them feel like homes away from home. Parking is free, which is not found in SF. A quick 10 minute drive over the Bay Bridge and you are in the City. I will definitely stay at the Woodfin many more times and I reccommend it to all of my friends.

I travel to Emeryville 2 or 3 times a month for business and wouldn't stay anywhere but the Woodfin. The comfortable suites, the convenient location, the restaurant and bar, are all good. But what brings me back are the staff at the front desk and in the restaurant. They are responsive to any problems (which don't often occur) but also make me feel welcome and appreciated.

Dear "marjoriemcl" - Thank you for your outstanding review. The management team and the entire staff are so exited to see their effort noticed and rewarded by such warm and gratifying words such as yours. Not only does the Woodfin Suite Hotel have awesome rooms/suites, with amazing views of San Francisco and not only does the Emery Bar and Grille Restaurant offer some of the most mouth-watering delicious fares, but we do indeed also have some of the friendliest, most helpful and pleasant Front Desk Staff members of any hotel. Thank you “marjoriemcl” for recognizing their hard work.

Nice hotel. Good location. Excellent if taking the train to Emeryville - very close. My only complaint was lack of wireless internet. They require an ethernet cable (supplied) but service was slow and it prevented me from using my own laptop while my brother was using his.

Dear "ECWForrestonIL" Thank you very much for your favorable comments and the two beautiful pictures that you added as well. We are all exited when we receive positive feedback. Thank you on behalf of everyone who works here. The wireless is being upgraded as I write this. Gone are the hardwire internet connection! Wireless and hardwire will be the way of our future. In the process our bandwidth is being expanded as well. So next time you’re with us, you should be able to “fly” the Internet. Again thank you for your kind review.

The hotel met all our needs for a family of four on vacation. The option to prepay our lodging at a discount was a great option. Central to SF, Oakland and other sites. Great dining and other services near by. Decent kitchen for making in room meals to save on costs. Our room had a cleaning rag in the corner of the kitchen floor. The rest of the room was clean and tidy. Beds were comfy. Front desk service was slow and non-committal. Took multiple phone calls for an additional bath towel - no follow up made by the front desk. Take note that it is RIGHT behind the Amtrak station so if you're a light sleeper, the Amtrak side is not what you want. I was surprised there wasn't free internet at this price.

Dear "family-from-pdx "
Thank you very much for your kind review. We are always pleased to be your "headquater" hotel for outings into San Francisco, the East Bay, the Wine Country or just about the whole Bay Area. Our location is indeed ideal for those staying for multiple days.
I appreciate your thoughts about the Internet charges and will consider revisiting these charges in the near future.
Again "family-from-pdx" thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback and look forward to your early return.

Arrived tired, worn out from long flights and delays. The room and bath was spacious, clean and comfortable. Pleasant staff and right across from Amtrak. Shuttle dropped us at Amtrak due to rain but you can easily walk it over the bridge and you're there. Would definitely stay again and recommend. We took BART and taxi (late at night bus not an option) from SFO for about $28 or two - took about an hour.

The staff was very accommodating, and our request to change rooms to the bay side was handled promptly (the train station on the east side of the building is not that noisy). The views were excellent. Dinner in the Emery Grill was reasonably priced and well-prepared.

Breakfast buffet was fresh and had a good selection. Service at both dinner and breakfast was excellent.

This was a good location for going into San Francisco (15 minutes once "rush hour" concluded) and easy access to the near by shops.
