Waterfront Views

Speaking of fancy backdrops, did you know there are four Oakland hotels overlooking the Jack London Estuary? If waterfront is the vibe you’re looking for, be sure to pack a blanket and some hot chocolate or a bottle of local Oakland wine so you can stay warm watching the sunset over the water from your balcony or terrace. More of an early riser? Don’t worry, these hotels also offer views to catch first light in Oakland.

Airport Hotels

Calling all history buffs and frequent flyers. Did you know that Oakland is home to the very first airport hotel in the USA? In fact, Amelia Earhart was no stranger to this hotel and stayed there many times. Oakland Airport Inn opened in 1929 and while the hotel is no longer open, the building still stands and is occupied by the Amelia Earhart Senior Squadron 188 of the Civil Air Patrol. Now there are more than 10 hotels within 3 miles of the Oakland airport. Did we mention easy access to parking too? We know that a lot of hotels in big cities don't own their own parking lots or love to overcharge for parking. That certainly isn't the case here. And don’t worry, since planes take off & land over the water at Oakland International Airport (OAK), you won’t hear any noise from your room.
