Each room is over-sized, some as large as 635 square feet. The bathrooms always get high praise; all with gorgeous glass enclosed shower, large soaking tub, and separate water closet. Additionally, waterside rooms feature either a patio or balcony where the setting sun over San Francisco can be a memorable experience.
The Bayside Hotel will be Branded as a BEST WESTERN PLUS hotel and marketed through the Best Western International brand. General Manager Mark Hochstatter; “Best Western, as the world’s largest hotel company, will give the Bayside Hotel the much needed exposure the property deserves. The Bayside property is Oakland’s best kept secret as there are few hotels that match our convenience in the Bay Area. We’re only 12 minutes from Downtown San Francisco via BART, while still offering one of the most intimate water views in the Bay Area.” Branded with the Plus moniker Hochstatter says “We were considering Premier status, however we don’t have a restaurant on site. We’re excited to shuttle our guests to one of the many restaurants that make up the exploding culinary scene that currently is so hot in Oakland.”
Formerly the Suites Building of the Executive Inn & Suites, which was Oakland’s #1 hotel on TripAdvisor, the BEST WESTERN PLUS Bayside Hotel formally opened its doors in late February, 2013 and has moved quickly into the #1 position on TripAdvisor. A new Porto Cochere, lobby renovation, and an expanded fitness center help to make the Bayside Hotel stand on its own. Best Western Rewards and frequent stay promotions will now encourage the traveler to experience this beautiful and convenient property.
