Be weary. HGI is normally for me no 1 choice for work. Breakfast as a diamond and overall a gem. This is not your normal new place. Old and in need of renovation. Place is tired. No one says your name, wears a name tag or answers the phone and admits who they are. Except for Jose the guy who...

Thanks Donald for your recent review. I feel your frustration loud and clear. I am very sorry that you were disappointed with your stay with us.

When visiting the Emeryville area, this location is perfect, as across the street is the beginning of some running/walking trails that make a 3 mile loop around a point with gorgeous views of the Bay and Golden Gate bridges, and the San Fran skyline, and a marina. For anyone who wants to get outside and exercise while traveling, this was...

Hotel is conveniently located across the bay. It is better value than staying in San Francisco. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean just wished it was queen beds instead of doubles Would definitely stay there again.

My car was stolen from the parking lot of this hotel. The lot is key card "protected". Rooms are ok and freeway noice is noticable most of the night. Hotel needs to address issue with their parking lot.

Hotel is in a nice area near the Emeryville marina which is a great walking area. Excellent view of the Bay Bridge and also has an upscale shopping area nearby. It is very convenient to not just San Francisco but other attractions such as Muir Woods, Berkley College, etc.

On-site parking was expensive - why charge your guests additional fees to park outside of the city? Breakfast (also fairly expensive for a buffet) is not included. This was my first of biweekly trips to the Bay area, and the last I'll spend at this property. I've booked for a better rate nearby for a bigger room with parking and...
