The staff were very friendly and helpful. Whenever I asked for coffee etc, they would remember to get it. I also liked the water plastic containers. We could refill on our own and convenient.

Panhandlers around the hotel.

It had tons of charm with a mix of history. Didn’t see any ghosts or spirits as some had mentioned in past reviews.
Bad Tags
Not able to be picked up by Uber or Lyft at hotel due to city restrictions. Had one incident where one of the confused homeless man became a little too aggressive with us. We went back in hotel and staff called us a taxi and walked us out.

The location and staff met our needs perfectly for going to three different plays nearby walking distance, since the Orpheum is right across the street.

They should not charge almost $60 per night to park a car. That is just gouging. We simply flew in to Oakland where you can take BART or Uber or Lyft roundtrip for less than parking your car one night at The Whitcomb. The resort fee of $35 is ridiculous.

The front desk staff was very rude, I was not treated like a guest even though the staff saw me check in with my boyfriend. My key was taken away because I got locked out for trying to get back into my room. Awful service, wont stay here again.

I did not like the fact that the hotel charged me even though I already had a prepaid reservation. I also did not like the fact that the front desk gave a complete stranger a key to my room.

It was old and not very clean. There was no airport shuttle despite it being advertised. The gym was a dump, with five pieces of equipment, all of which were broken. There was no refrigerator in the room, and to rent one it would've been an additional $
