Katy Rosen · Married on 05/11/2019
We had a hotel block at The Oaklander for our wedding in May 2019 and we couldn't be happier! We had many out-of-town guests coming in for the wedding, most of which stayed at the hotel.Sent on 05/30/2019
Emily Semmelroth and all of the staff were so wonderful from start to finish. Before we arrived, they did their best to make sure that everyone was on a similar floor/near each other and also checked to see if there were any special requests. They allowed us to borrow various items for our hair and makeup teams and other items that we needed for the day of celebrations in our suite. They even brought us a mini fridge to our room to keep our wedding cake in!
We rented the Presidential Suite for the weekend, which was INCREDIBLE!! It was such a beautiful room, so spacious, and perfect for getting ready on the wedding day! The best part is that it has 2 bathrooms and the bedroom/private bathroom closes off.
The hotel is centrally located in Oakland, which was perfect for our Heinz Chapel/Carnegie Music Hall wedding. The restaurant/bar were perfect meeting places for the night before the wedding and the morning after brunch.
We really cannot say enough great things about this hotel! They were so very wonderful to work with and so welcoming to us and all of our guests! We highly recommend them for your wedding blocks or just to stay for a few days!
