Excellent hotel, never stay anywhere else A review of HYATT house Emeryville/San Francisco Bay Area
I travel to the Bay Area for business every couple of months and have been staying at the Woodfin for over two years, even though it's not the closest hotel to my office. They always have government rate rooms, keep my information on file, and process reservations impeccably.
I often bring family or friends with me to stay at the hotel while I'm at the office during the day. It's close to great shopping, both high-end and more reasonable (within walking distance to IKEA), an international food court, Borders (show your room key for a 20% discount), etc. Plenty to do without a car. The hotel offers a free shuttle service to anywhere within a 5-mile radius.
The breakfasts are always more than adequate and the appetizers in the evening often serve as a small dinner for me.
The only complaint, if I had to reach, is that the front-desk staff is a little standoffish, but they certainly do their job.
Excellent hotel overall.
