Steak Your Claim at Executive Inn and Suites Hotel in Oakland

“Best steak dinner I ever had”, “It was a five-star meal”, “the best meal deal in Oakland”. If you thought these compliments were for some of the top steakhouses in San Francisco, like Harris’ on Nob Hill – or Gibson’s in Chicago, it would be understandable. You might be surprised then to know that these are words frequently found in comment cards for the Executive Inn and Suites Hotel in Oakland! Naturally, most of our guests just tell the purveyors of these fine steak meals that in person, but some feel compelled (and we’re not complaining) to write a Google, TripAdvisor, or other travel review for us.

Executive Inn and Suites hotel in Oakland: daily Grill’n & Chill’n

Chillin’ and Grillin’ at our Waterfront Hotel in Oakland

Seven days a week you will find Howie, Gonzo or Jorge behind the bar AND manning the grill for The Executive Inn and Suites Grill’n & Chill’n from 5PM to 9PM. Guests of the hotel in Oakland don’t have to leave the property to get a nice meal.  For $15.00 a plate you can choose between a steak or salmon dinner (served with a side salad and mashed potatoes).

You should open a restaurant!

Mark Hochstatter, longtime General Manager of Executive Inn and Suites says that guests tell them all the time that the food is so good they should open a restaurant, but Mark states, “We actually are not a restaurant we only serve a grilled steak or fillet of salmon meal. That’s all. We had so many people that didn’t want to go out, and just preferred to order a drink and enjoy the view, that we fired up the grill. We keep it simple in the lounge. We have a full bar but only the two meal selections. But it’s a home-run every time. This is just another way that we make our waterfront hotel in Oakland a consistent top pick of Oakland TripAdvisor travelers.”

See what our guests have to say about the steak and salmon meals that Howie Jorge and Gonzo grill up at The Executive Inn and Suites hotel in Oakland:

“The Dinner at the Lounge” I was pleasantly surprised that there was a dinner that ran in the lounge from 5 – 9 p.m. It was something I had not suspected would be available. The dinner was only $15 and you had your choice of salmon or steak and it came with mashed potatoes (a secret recipe and really yummy!) and a salad. It was served by the bartender and was the best meal I have had at a hotel in a long time! I plan to go there for dinner next time I am in the area. And I have to say, the bartenders, Howie and Gonzo were great! They are very personable and always quick and happy to get whatever a person wants when it comes to drinks.

“Best of the Best” My family and I spent three days at the Executive Inn and Suites, and it was the best stay ever. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and the staff is amazing especially Veronica she is the best, and very sweet as well, along with Faviola and Cristina. If you are looking for a good meal in California, I will strongly suggest that you eat at the Executive Inn and Suites at the bar. They have the best steak and salmon dinner in all of California, for an amazingly inexpensive price of $15.00. I would have paid $50 – $100.00 easily for the same meal at any steak house in California and the drinks are really strong and good (top shelf). Just ask for Uncle Howie, and his right man Jorge, they will cook your steak to perfection. We will stay here whenever we come to California, you are minutes from Jack London Square where you can catch the ferry over to San Francisco, and if you decide to drive to L.A. you will be right there by the beltway. THE BEST DEAL GOING IN CALIFORNIA HANDS DOWN. Trip Advisor, Columbus, Ohio, stayed July 2016, traveled with family
“Perfect stay” Great hotel option instead of staying in San Fran and spending $$$. It’s very close to Jack London square for the ferry to SF. Looking forward to staying here again. Very nice and clean. They offer two options for a nightly dinner. Steak or salmon and both were fantastic. Trip Advisor, Sacramento, California, stayed June 2016, traveled with family
“Excellent Service” Jorge S. In the lounge/bar is awesome! My mother and I watched him hustle two nights in a row with a smile providing great service. This is the best meal deal in Oakland. We received a large portion of salmon, a huge salad, and a generous portion of mashed potatoes. Trip Advisor, stayed June 2016, traveled with family

So, next time your travels bring you to Oakland, stay at the only waterfront hotel in Oakland that many think may offer the best steak they ever had! Stop by the lounge, kick back, order a drink and a steak or salmon meal. Enjoy your great food and the waterfront view. Don’t forget to say hello to Howie, Gonzo or Jorge. We can’t wait to see you . . . don’t forget to come hungry!
