Rated 3 out of 5 by Colp Not happy with my stay
I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as it was recommended by the people hosting the conference I was attending, but I was not impressed with the facilities and will not stay there again. I travel a lot for work and this is one of the worst hotels I've stayed at, as:
1) The room was missing a fridge which should be mandatory in every room
2) The shower head was extremely low so when taking a shower I had to bend my head backwards

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wyndy Super nice staff; disappointing property
Front desk person remembered my name on day two. AWESOME!
Free breakfast was only the buffet, from which I cannot eat, due to dietary restrictions. Would have been nicer to have a $ credit towards food.
Housekeeping did not make up my room. Two thumbs down!
Overall, tired, small property. Close to San Francisco only if traffic is good. It took me 50 minutes to get from the China Basin to the hotel on a Tuesday night at 7PM; 1.5 hours to get to South San Francisco from the hotel at noonish on a Wednesday.
Plus: walking distance to Trader Joe's, Marshalls, etc.

Very loud hotel with traffic noise, and very inconsiderate guests with kids running around hotel halls at all hours.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TraumaJoe The staff is awesome
I stay here several time a month. The staff recognize me and bend over backwards to accommodate me. Jamie works the desk on Saturday mornings and does his best to get me checked in early, since I have usually worked the night before. I am greeted by name and they know my preferences. The gentleman who works nights sees me coming off the elevator and has me checked out and the folio emailed before I get to the desk! Thanks, everyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by shivamve This hotel is great but what does preferred guest mean?
I just started my stay at this hotel and will be staying weekly this month and next. While requesting my bookings for the next weeks the person at the reception was rather upfront about me not getting the room at all. even before she started checking the dates and didnt even care about the fact that people from my company have been staying at this hotel for a long time now. She was even okay with me going to book at some rival hotel. Thankfully another person took charge and made the requested bookings immediately.
This has left a bad taste in the mouth and if the preferred guest tag doesnt mean anything other than points then it makes no sense.
The rest of the stay was good and comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by thehof Unfortunately the only SPG property in Oakland
I've stayed at this hotel twice now, not the ideal hotel but it's really the only SPG property in east bay.
This place is loud, it's right by a major highway and a heavy traffic street. The first time was really bad as my room on the back side right by the major road, they told me to request bay view next time to help with this, but my proximity to the major intersection didn't change much. Bring earplugs, I did both times, perhaps I need to get better ones.
I tried their room service for breakfast ordering in advance, it showed up 30 mins late, they comped it which was nice, but it was still late.
The thermostat in my room barely worked, there was no consistent pattern to the buttons (only up and down) to when it might work and when it might not.
The tap in the sink was broken, and you really had to maneuver it to get the right temperature.
If you can stay elsewhere, but if you need an SPG property in the east bay it's still your best bet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GRemi excellent location
Attended a workshop on the premises and could have not been happier with the room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had a room with a refrigerator and microwave that helped with my desire to stay in and study. There are plenty of places to eat and shop within walking distance and the parking was free which is a great bonus. The bed was very comfortable and room was clean and spacious.

The breakfast program did not make sense. You could get a complete meal with juice and coffee. However , if you wanted a single item it did not come with coffee or juice. The voucher should be based on a dollar value.

Staff at front was rude. Stereo type me and wife told us no smoking three times , but we reserved a non smoking room cause we dnt smoke . Was just giving us a hard time. I had a pal pal credit card with a master card logo he kept asking other staff do we except these. His name was celso. Bathroom had urine staines on it . I payed $170 dollars to get treated like this.

I am a frequent business traveler and have stayed at many Four Points Sheraton hotels. The bathroom in our room was sooooo small that if you were a man, you would have troubles. I was there with my daughter and wanted to buy her a beer and the bar was closed also. It was 6-7pm at night - why have a bar if it is going to be closed

Rated 1 out of 5 by AHtraveler Horrible, do not stay here
I have never had problems at SPG hotels, I have been a member for about 10 years and always try and stay when I can. This was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in and I spend over 100 nights a year in hotels. Staff was unhelpful. They had 2 buses arrive with no pre-planning, so it took 30 minutes to get to elevator, finally had to ask that stairs be open so I could get to my room.
But the kicker was that at 11:30 on Friday night I was woken by a cleaning crew for hotel running a generator out of van below my room. My room was literally shaking. After calling front desk it took another 20 minutes for them to get it shut off, and they were rude when it was requested. If you travel a lot and expect simple stays while on business, find another hotel because this one isn't for you.

I had three breakfasts and none were good.
Short on employees, cash registers and English speakers.
Food was fine, but the menu was not broad enough, even for breakfast.
No muffins; lack of variety of cereal; eggs took a long time.
Seating was cramped.

Rated 2 out of 5 by frequentguest1921 Only location
This is a common destination for me but I only stay at the Four Points for convenience. The area is great but the hotel itself is one of the worst in the chain. Rooms are very loud with hallway and street noise being a constant companion. Rooms are also very small. Additionally, this is the one hotel in the chain that is nearly impossible to get an upgraded room even as a Platinum 50. If I had another choice for my stays that was in SPG I would take it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by canuckwineguy Not an example of Four Points
I'm a platinum Starwood member, so the loyalty I have towards the brand is there. This hotel is the poorest example of a Four Points I have stayed in. I wasted 4 nights of an upgrade to a 'suite' that was more like any typical room with 2 beds and a bathroom that was very small. I read earlier comments, but thought those people were just 'gripers', well sadly they were correct, can't recommend this hotel other than its location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AAA1 Stone's throw from the city
Nicely situated just across the Bay Bridge from the city of San Francisco, the 4 Points SF By Bridge in Emeryville is the perfect property. Not too big, and not too sall, the service is personal and the space is private. There is no fee for parking. The Compass Lounge is great. There is on site dining, a pool, and close proximity to retail and restaurants. In terms of value, this is the best place to stay in the bay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MichaelCh Disappointing SPG Experience
Any hotel in the San Francisco Bay area must have Internet as a business. The wireless access at this hotel failed to work the first night (and the hotel personnel couldn't help, referring me to a toll free number). I called and spent 90 minutes on a call while a technician rebooted numerous access points around the hotel to attempt to give me access.
The next day, wireless worked -- sort of. Over the next day, it would work for 30 minutes at a respectable speed. Then it would slow down to a snail's pace or simply kick one off. This is how it worked consistently for the next several days.
The plumbing at the hotel also needs work. Hot water did not come out of the sink even after running it for 10 minutes. The shower did not maintain a temperature, requiring constant adjustment. The showerhead was at a height of about 4 feet, perfect for a 10-year-old child, not an adult. The toilet stopped up twice.

This is the 4th time I've stayed here in the last two years. It always meets or exceeds my expectations. It's super convenient for seeing my child at UC Berkeley, and also for going on trips to SF.

I know one cannot compare hotels in different areas regarding pricing, however, overall the rooms, bathrooms, and in room services are equal to La Quinta Inns that are half the price. Unfortunately, the East Bay area has few choices to create a competitive situation for hotels.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ali1234 Horrible Experience at the Four Points San Francisco Bay Bridge
The hotel room quality was pathetic with extremely small rooms. The bathroom sink is in the bedroom...and not attached with the shower/toilet.....very annoying. After requesting an upgrade with more money, i was told that all the rooms are like that. This is the worst Sheraton property I have stayed at.

First, we are given keys and sent to a messy Occupied room, then my paid-upgrade for a king bed room was ignored.
Staff knocked on door at 7:45 am wanting to clean the room.
Bathroom tiny and grout was stained with and smelled like urine.
No breakfast (which was advertised).

The bathroom was extremely small and difficult to get around in. The shower head leaked terribly and the water temperature fluctuated wildly while taking a shower. It would go from unbearably hot to ice cold without touching the faucet.

What happened to bar soap and individual bottles of shampoo? Not everyone likes the bulk containers on the wall. The rooms are very small and need refurbishing. Just feels dirty. Not very impressed. One of the worst SPG I have been to.

This hotel is in fantastic location in that it is close enough to the highway and far enough so you do not get highway noise. Unfortunately, the hotel restaurant kitchen was undergoing construction work so they were limited on food choices. However, it seemed to work for all in our party and there is a restaurant next door that works well also. The fitness room has cardio equipment as well as free weights. We would stay again if our travels take us to the area.
