My business meeting was in Hayward, Cali, but somehow Union City populated when I was searching for accommodations. Thank you travel app used by my company!

I've stayed at this hotel several times for business, and I never ran into any problems. The rooms could be updated a bit, as they look quite old, and the hotel is way overpriced, but overall, I'm quite pleased. Free breakfast is nice and the staff is also very nice and quite helpful. I loved the pool and hot tub!

A seamless check-in after what felt like a travel day from hell. A man behind reception was in his own clothes, ready to go home. The lady who had taken over (I guess change of shifts) was with another customer, and instead of the man going home, he made sure I was checked in without having to wait any longer....

Average room next to a street under repair. The windows reduced the noise to allow for a peaceful sleep. However, I am amazed how a $130 normal price room can sell for $259 per night. This seems illegal and unethical.

Booked room with advance purchase but on the day checking in found out rate was a couple of dollars lower. Did not get an upgrade being an IHG Platinum member. Overall service was adequate. Sleep quality is also adequate. May only consider this hotel again if other options are not available.

Stayed at this hotel for a staycation evening. The front desk staff was pleasant and attentive. I love the rooms at this place as they all are equipped with a microwave and fridge. Very convenient given the is hotels proximity to lots of restaurants. Great to be able to save those leftovers for late night snacks. Highly recommended.
