When visiting Oakland, we know you’re going to want to indulge. There’s a nationally-acclaimed restaurant on nearly every corner, a classic dive bar or new brewery calling your name.

Not to worry – just outside your hotel room door, there are also several simple and fun running routes to help you maintain your exercise regimen, while also giving you a chance to explore the surrounding neighborhoods. And, with 260 sunny days a year, it’s always a good time to hit the pavement in The Town. 

Love is in the air! With weddings being the trending topic, Oakland has lots of options for your special day. The Town has a number of beautiful venues from indoor to outdoor, classic to modern. Finding a spot to get hitched is a non-issue here! 

Silence may be golden, but here in Oakland, we like a little more bass in our evenings. Oakland's music scene kicks it up with a large population of musicians; Kehlani, Mistah F.A.B., Too $hort, -- that have a variety of venues to play at, from stages that are merely a section of the bar floor to those places where the band is on a pedestal and the velvet curtains part.

The Sunny Side of the Bay is THE city to host your next meeting, convention or event. Oaklands hotel meeting spaces range from traditional to unique and under the stars to under the streetlights. All affordable, all accessible.
