Oakland From Home
Choose somewhere close. Close to home.
Close to giant redwoods, open waters, and rolling green hills.
Choose somewhere you feel like yourself. Somewhere you can just be.
Be creative. Be inspired. Be proud. Be your most genuine self.
Somewhere history is made and diversity is celebrated.
Somewhere powered by people, and energized by community.
Somewhere like Oakland.
Welcome to Oakland, you belong here.
In Oakland, we bend, but we don’t break. We’re rooted. We embrace different perspectives as opportunities to grow, and we choose love over hate. We are resilient. Oakland is where arts and culture collide, cuisines fuse, and nature meets nurture.
Feel Safe Traveling to Oakland
We want you to feel safe when traveling to Oakland, and our hotels do too. They've worked hard to ensure they are COVID compliant in a variety of ways. CDC recommended cleaning procedures, enforced social distancing protocols, staff required health screenings and face mask usage, staff training on cleanliness protocols, contactless check-in, and hand sanitizing stations are just some of the measures our hotels are taking to ensure a safe and relaxing experience.
