“Great location, otherwise just OK”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

We stayed in this hotel for 6 days because of proximity to both San Fran and Oakland . Great both for driving access to both and there is an Emeryville bus service stop right across the street which will shuttle you to the BART station for additional transportation options. There is a shopping center right across the street also which includes a Trader Joe's for food options other than restaurants. The hotel offers a fridge and microwave for your room if you ask the desk though they don't tell you otherwise. There is no additional charge. This really helped for quick snacks and breakfast for a long stay. Our room was a bit worn but there were updates taking place while were were there in other rooms so I think an upgrade was in progress. The front desk staff was very nice. We did have a problem with a credit card security issue while in the hotel which, while it did not result in any major problems, was still troubling. Management addressed the issue but we got no real resolution. Left us with less than the great feeling we would have otherwise had. We used SPG points for the stay and I agree with another reviewer that the points cost is high for this level of accommodation but everything is expensive in the Bay Area.

This hotel is in a great location next to shops and grocery stores.
The management is super kind and the hotel is very clean.

I was working in Emeryville and this is closer to Oakland than San Fran but there is a free shuttle to the BART that took me right to downtown San Fran. No complaints on location.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny. Seemed like A/C was stuck on in my room, I would check this as if...

Green Features: Excellent. I did the green choice (no maid cleaning while I was there) in the hotel room, this got me traveler points which I can use on my next trip.

We picked this hotel for its location. SPG points requirement is too much for the type of accomodation. AC didn't work. We were told by techinician that as long as we shut the sliding door and wait for 15 mins, it should kick in but it didn't. Shower head was leaking. Called the front desk and they sent someone up right away but for Sheraton standard, that's unsatisfactory. I knew we checked in late so we must have got the crappiest room but as an SPG member and for 10000 points, this hotel is really not worth it.

This hotel was a great location for visiting San Francisco without paying the price of San Francisco Hotels. Easy trip across the Bay Bridge and you can enjoy all of San Francisco.
Hotel was well kept and staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
It was a perfect central location, from our hotel we were able to visit San Francisco, Napa Valley, Sausalito, Monterey & Carmel. There is a nice outdoor mall within a block of hotel and a Trader Joes accross the street. The only negative I could say is not many dining choices nearby.
Was an excellent vacation!

The room was neat, but of a smaller size than a more modern lodging. Room reminds of something from the 70's. The bed was so "soft" (worn out) that I felt I needed to roll up hill to get out of bed. Bath area was tiny, just tub/shower and toilet. Noisy air conditioner fan, single speed, either keeps you awake or no ventilation. Bed options limited. Either 1 King or 2 double beds. No roll-away beds. Would have liked the option for 2 queen beds, or King and something else so 3 adults could comfortably share room Location is good, but some freeway noise to deal with. I had limited involvement with staff, but what I did have was friendly and courteous.

I attended a conference in Moscone centre, San Francisco. This Hotel is quite a distance from the conference venue but this is a quiet place. There is nice neighborhood to roam around.
Very very good shopping area is just next door. Early morning walks will be remembered for long.
Adjacent restaurants are also very good.

Room Tip: Rooms are good. There was a small balcony to my room. View outside is ok ok.

Green Features: Nothing very special to mention about. It's clean Hotel with friendly staff.

The plus to this location is that it's out of all the San Francisco traffic and has lots of food options in Emeryville, Oakland and Berkley. The front desk staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The bar and cafe in the lobby were cute and modern. The room was quite small and, somehow, missing a fridge. The a/c control on the wall did not work, so I controlled everything on the in-room unit, which was a little inconsistent in temperature. The bathroom was strangely split, with the shower and toilet in a bathroom, but the sink in the hallway by the door and closet. Some of the plugs didn't work and there weren't any plugs near the bed, so I had to charge my electronics across the room. Not a bad experience for the two days I was there for work. Just beware the LONG wait to get through the Bay Bridge Toll-- 35+ minutes! Yikes!
