• A WorldWeb.com Travel Guide for Oakland, California.
Located on the east side of San Francisco Bay just 8 mi (13 km) east of San Francisco, the East Bay city of Oakland is one of California's most ethnically diverse cities and is renowned for its professional sports organizations, vibrant arts community, its bustling port, expansive bay shoreline and at its core, picturesque Lake Merritt. Known locally as Oaktown or O-Town, the city is replete with sights and attractions to enhance any traveling itinerary, whether a visit is for business or pleasure. This travel article will provide a look into Oakland's hotel and motel scene, taking into consideration nearby attractions, services and budgets.


The greatest concentration of hotel and motel lodgings are found in the city center, home to museums, the Oakland Convention Center, historic landmark buildings reflecting Victorian and Art Deco architecture, unique shops and a world of flavors at casual and upscale dining establishments. Hotel lodgings in this area run the gamut of choices, including basic motel properties for the budget-minded, mid-scale chains with standard to above-standard amenities and for luxury-seekers, well-appointed high-rise style hotels offering select rooms with bay, lake or Golden Gate Bridge views. The majority of these properties are centered around the main corridor of Broadway Street, between 8th and 14th streets, making any choice ideal for easily accessing the convention center, the urban lake, Interstates 880 and 890 and sights of the inner harbor.


Named for renowned author Jack London, this waterfront district is located just south of the downtown core and is home to numerous historically significant landmarks, including Heinold's First and Last Chance Saloonwhere London spent his childhood studying and building ideas for future novels.

While hotel lodgings are not as plentiful as the nearby downtown core, a few standout choices are available, including the nautically-inspired Waterfront Plaza Hotel which features contemporary design, on-site dining, an outdoor pool and harbor views.

Situated across from this waterfront district sits Alameda Island and the city of Alameda, also home to an ample selection of chain and independent hotel properties, all offering ease of access to services, yachting, shopping, entertainment, the attractions of Oakland and the greater Bay area.
