What travelers to Oakland are saying

I was in town for business, so no time to explore. I did, however, enjoy In and Out nearby. Definitely a plus. In the morning, found a Starbucks nearby as well. I was a happy business traveler.

Hotels in Oakland

Oakland, California, across the bay from San Francisco, holds much history; some of which is on display at the Oakland Museum of California, some of which is found walking through the several blocks of Chinatown, and some of which can be seen in landmarks like the restored Fox and Paramount theaters, the Housewives Market in Old Oakland, and the Last Chance Saloon in Jack London Square.

Key facts

Many travelers fly into Oakland International Airport (OAK), though two Amtrak stations stop in the city as well. Locals and guests alike use the Bay Area Rapid Transit light-rail system, BART, to travel throughout the East Bay and San Francisco Bay area. There are many waterfront lodgings available to choose from, which are close to the city center.

Oakland is known for its diversity of people as well as its wide range of scenery, which includes Lake Merritt; the first official wildlife refuge in the United States. The city is also progressively modern, as illustrated in the abundance of galleries and artists' collectives, and as tasted in the foodies' mecca of Uptown. Sports fans flock to the Arena or the Coliseum while families might head to the zoo.

Hints and tips

Weather in Oakland remains moderate year-round, with high temperatures between the mid-40s and mid-70s. During the annual Art & Soul Festival held downtown in August, however, temperatures can hit 80 degrees.
