Los Angeles, California, USA

One of favorite places to stay while in Northern California. It’s only a 10 minute drive into the city. 25 minutes to Oakland International. It’s also close to a shopping center where you can find everything you need. The rooms are clean. The property is safe. Make sure you ask for a bay bridge view room!

This Hilton Garden Inn offers a bright, contemporary standard HGI lobby with coffee, fruit water, and/or oatmeal cookies available throughout the day. Upon arriving I noticed this property offers reserved parking for Diamond-level HHonors members, though as a lowly HHonors Gold member, I was forced to park amongst the commoners. Quelle horreur!

My room (Room 613), while a little dated and showing their age in places (slight wallpaper peeling and a small water stain on the ceiling) offered a bed so comfortable I woke up one morning and was briefly surprised to find myself in a hotel. Housekeeping was near flawless.

The in-house restaurant "The Garden Grille & Bar", while apparently open to the public, was only available for breakfast and dinner but did offer a serviceable dinner menu for the size of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was filling and the option to request made-to-order omelets or scrambles was nice. Breakfast service was hit and miss at times, but admirable considering the hotel was hosting a birthday, a quinceañera, and a wedding party and there was an influx of fans for a Cal football game that weekend.

Unfortunately, the TV-based folio was "not available" for me to review, nor was a paper copy slipped under my room door the night before checkout, but I wasn't interested in stopping at the front desk, so we decided to chance it. (Suggestion for HHonors development team: It would be nice if the HHonors mobile app could provide logged-in users with a real-time copy of their folios and the ability to check out.)

Good location to stay at in the bay area. I stay here when I need to be at Cal-Berkeley for business. Nice rooms and a free local shuttle that gets you to the Macarthur BART station.

City of Industry, California, USA

Typical Hilton quality. Nice linens, furniture, staff. Nice in house gym and pool/spa. Wifi and plug in internet is free for hotel guest. Parking however is not.

Surprisingly - even with the freeway right outside my window, the noise wasn't that bad. If you can get it, get a bay view room. It's nice being able to look out into bay and the bridge in the background.

There is a nice outdoor shopping center on the other side of the freeway - Bay Street. Lots of shops and restaurants. There is also the Emeryville marketplace - which also has a bunch of eateries on the otherside of the freeway.

First to Review

This place was a Holiday Inn when I first moved to the Bay Area. At that time, this Hotel, Watergate, and nearby restaurants (e.g.,Trader Vic's, and Carlos Murphy's) were pretty much the main things going on in Emeryville.

I have never actually stayed here under any name. However, this place is full of personal memories. The most notable was my ex-Wife's 20th High School Reunion on the scenic top level. That event included sitting next to an old boyfriend (with unfinished business) and a standing romantic interlude in the stairwell. Gayle still doesn't believe that story.

Past that, this Hotel has been a dependable business meeting/dinner venue and a place where I've been lucky enough to catch up with some old friends. The upstairs view is stunning, the "rubber chicken" offerings (and service) have been surprisingly good, and the location is convenient. Some of the subjects covered at these meetings were also actually interesting and helpful.
