Welcome to HotelGuide.Networks' directory of hotels and hotel reviews for Oakland, California!
San Francisco Bay's Oakland, founded in 1852, beckons as one of the nation's most ethnically integrated cities, with more than 100 languages and dialects heard on its streets. Native Americans occupied the area more than 5,000 years ago. The Spanish stopped by in the 1770's, settling 50 years later. Then the Gold Rush attracted Asians, African Americans, and more Europeans. Modern longevity in watering holes extends to Heinold's First and Last Chance Saloon, in continuous operation at the same spot since 1883, while Mother's Cake & Cookie Company has baked away in Oakland as the nation's largest cookie producer since 1914. Boasting three professional sports teams, Oakland is a picturesque mix of hillside neighborhoods, diverse architecture, bustling waterfront, nearly 20 miles of San Francisco Bay shoreline, and, with more than 50 parks, more open space per capita than any other Bay Area city. In 1870, Lake Merritt was declared America's first state game refuge, and remains the only natural salt-water lake in the heart of a city.
Oakland also thrives as an arts community, with an acclaimed symphony and ballet, museums, and galleries. Booming after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the Broadway Historic District showcases architectural treasures constructed between 1900-1949. Charming neighborhoods include Montclair, Rockridge, and Piedmont, as well as districts such as Glenview, Fruitvale, and Temescal. Between Broadway and Clay, from 7th to 10th Streets, historic Old Oakland is lined with restored Victorian buildings dating to the 1870s, now housing shops, galleries, and restaurants. The 25-block Chinatown district broadly reflects Oakland's diverse Asian community, and Chinatown Streetfest annually attracts 100,000 celebrants. Jack London Square, where the U.S.S. Potomac, FDR's Floating White House, is docked, offers world-class jazz, dining, lodging, and shopping. North Oakland's Piedmont Avenue is lined with antique shops, boutiques, bookstores and a popular local cinema. Julia Morgan's magnificent Chapel of the Chimes is at the top of Piedmont Avenue.
Extending more than two miles from Oakland to Berkeley, College Avenue hosts specialty shops, restaurants, bars, and shops. Market Hall houses a bakery to accompany produce, fish, flowers, and wine. Montclair Village, with restaurants and coffee houses, serves as a convenient stop before or after trips to Chabot Space & Science Center or East Bay parks. The Fruitvale District thrives as a multicultural commercial area with Latino identity, hosting the annual Dia de los Muertos festival. Oakland International Airport, the Bay Area's most centrally located airport, is served by a dozen carriers, and getting around is easy by train, automobile, BART, bus, and ferry. Oakland lodging options range from bed and breakfasts to waterfront hotels.
