Discover our hotels in Oakland, California, across the bay from San Francisco. Glide across Lake Merritt in a kayak, dine on dumplings in Oakland's Chinatown and zip over to San Francisco for an afternoon by the glittering bay waters.
Spend a fog-free day exploring Oakland. The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) puts you within easy reach of the city's most desirable neighborhoods. Learn about the Golden State's history, art and nature at the Oakland Museum of California near our Oakland hotels. Particularly engaging for kids is the Nature gallery, where they can listen to snorting elephant seals, hissing snakes and hundreds of other audible delights. At nearby Lake Merritt, rent kayaks for a pleasant paddle across the tidal lagoon and stroll the 3-mile lakeside trail favored by local joggers. Lakeside cafes and shops line Grand Avenue on the park's north end. Beckoning from across the bay are San Francisco's scenic hilly streets. Take the BART for a quick ride to the city of Fisherman's Wharf, the Transamerica Pyramid and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Guests of our Oakland hotels enjoy shopping at eclectic boutiques, antique shops and bookstores along North Oakland's Piedmont Avenue. The city's diverse population translates into some of the best-and best-value-ethnic food in the Bay Area. Order spicy stir fries and delicious noodles at small Chinese and Vietnamese eateries in Chinatown or tuck into a taqueria in the Fruitvale district for pork or steak tacos on freshly-made tortillas. Many guests of our hotels in Oakland prefer to dine al fresco at lively restaurants in Jack London Square-also a prime nighttime destination for evening jazz.
Stay at our Holiday Inn® hotels in Oakland to see the Oakland Athletics and Oakland Raiders take the field at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum during baseball and football season.
