That seems pretty normal to me when I have priced hotels in Emeryville in the past. That is why, after arriving in Emeryville on the Zephyr a few years ago, I took a California corridor train to Oakland and stayed at the Inn at Jack London Square (now the Z Hotel) within walking distance of the Oakland station (and the ferry to San Francisco). Prices at that hotel were far more reasonable. Now that I understand the Z Hotel has been sold and will no longer be available to the public, I am not sure what I will do on my next trip. Maybe I am getting priced out of visiting the San Francisco area and will have to visit Colfax instead.That is Pricey! There must be some Big Event going on in the Bay Area that week( possibly Fleet Week?) for Prices on the East Side of the Bay to be so High???!!!
