It’s no secret you’ll be using it as a springboard to explore the infinite attractions in and around San Leandro, but Hilton Garden Inn has still thrown in extras to tempt you back to the hotel. There’s the bijou indoor pool and whirlpool, the fitness room, the complimentary WiFi and parking, and your guestrooms ‘hospitality center’ – complete with microwave, fridge and coffee maker.

Hotel itself is okay but the area it is in is very questionable. I suggest shopping around and selecting a different location if you plan to do any walking around the hotel vicinity. Not worth the rates I have paid.

grass was green, nicely trimmed bushes, looked like they didn’t short any expense on maintenance, inside the lobby was spotless, great service, best sleep I’ve had in a while, will definitely be back.

It was a business trip so I got in later and had to leave early. When I woke I realized there were pubic hairs all over the shower, and probably bodily fluids in shower gel dispenser. I would have said something if I would have noticed night before, but as I said late in early out. I would compare the rooms bathrooms to a gas station restroom. Very expensive for what it was. Probably $250 per night overpriced. I was really creep' ed out by the pubic hairs everywhere. Read less
