“Decent Place for the Money”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

This is one of my usual stays if i'm working locally around Oakland or San Leandro area -- can usually get a pretty good rate if you can afford to wait to the last minute and do the prepaid rate from spg.com web site (usually at least 20% savings)

The hotel isn't anything special but great staff at the front desk. If you stay here and plan on visiting San Fran, recommend taking BART into the city as the Bay Bridge tolls can become a major mess even in the middle of the day and parking downtown is extremely painful / expensive

There are a few decent restaurants w/in a couple blocks walking distance (Elephant Bar) and a Starbucks right across the street.

Room Tip: Due to the location, low and/or high floors don't make a major difference as it's a pretty q...

I stayed at the Four Points Emeryville for 4 nights in March. Here are my pros and cons on the place...

Pros
1. Great Staff and service-Every person I talked to at the front desk were extremely friendly. Plus my 4am wake up call and taxi were right on time to get back to the airport.
2. Comfortable bed
3. Good value
4. Location is walking distance from a nice shopping area and restaurants (Trader Joe's, Marshall's, Gap, Banana Republic, Godiva, California Pizza Kitchen, PF Changs)

Cons
1. One side of the hotel which I was on is right next to a busy road and train tracks
2. The walls are a bit thin
3. Very small bathroom
4. Rooms showing age

Didn't try the fitness center or the restaurant or room service so I can't comment on them.

Room Tip: Try to get a room opposite the train tracks and main road

I travel almost every week for business; and I see a lot of dirty hotels with bad service. This hotel was one of the best I have stayed in. The front desk staff was extremely helpful. I brought my handicapped mother with me on this trip; and the moment I arrived in the hotel, the staff immediately told where I could park that would be closest to the elevator inside the lobby. I was also extremely happy to find complimentary coffee and a selection of teas available in the lobby throughout the morning and late afternoon every day. There are very few hotels doing this anymore. My room was very clean and housekeeping replenished everything (including a complimentary bottle of water) each day. The location of the hotel was great as well. There is a Trader Joe's right across the street; and two movie theaters within two minutes driving. San Francisco is also only right across the bridge (about 5-10 min driving). I would definitely stay there again.

Great service, friendly front desk person checked me in, noticed my birthday was just a week or so away, and 'granted' us the option of a 'nice king sized room w/ a view of the bay bridge" or an executive room which was a little bigger. We took the king with the view. It's been a few years since I last stayed at this hotel, and since then it seems that nothing has been replaced or improved. The bedding (blanket) had those little bumps in it from being washed too many times, the wash cloths are tired and graying, one even had stains on it.

On the upside, it's the only starwood property that I stayed at this long weekend (and I stayed at 4, the Westin, Sheraton, Le Meridian, and this Four Points) that provided complimentary water bottles, it also provided complimentary parking and wifi. The hotel's location is pretty great too, an easy walk to shops and dining and the staff is friendly and accommodating.

I just wish they'd invest some money in refreshing some of their linens and decor in general.

Toilet ran constantly - even after it was reported.
Room services bills 2x for tip.
If you are not out of you room by 11:30 a.m., housekeeping slips a paper under you door and says they can't clean you room until the next day.

It's just a typical run of the mill "place to sleep" at best. Desperately needs a facelift. Best thing about the property was free parking. And free wireless.

Older hotel with small rooms. Front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. I was disappointed that rooms do not have refrigerators or microwaves.
Pros: good staff, one free bottle of water, free internet access
Cons: no fridge or microwave, no free breakfast, older rooms with thin walls
