in a recent post the two 3 star hotels in downtown Oakland (Eastbay (Oakland - Alameda)) were identified as 3* Courtyard Downtown 3* Marriott City Center (previously 3.5*) I need to have something within walking distance of BART. These two would be fine. Can anyone confirm that this is the population of downtown Oakland hotels? When I look at the "buy it now" option the Clarion is included, which would be fine, as well as airport selections. The "name your own price" Oakland/Alameda seems to exclude the airport area, as it appears to be separate. Can anyone confirm my observations? Not sure why the Clarion is not included in the downtown/Oakland-Alameda list, and want to make sure I'm not by the airport and have to deal with the shuttle. Thanks.
