I did a review from July of 2014, and I figured that I couldn't plagiarize my own work, so here it is.
We didn't spend a lot of time in the room, so we didn't capitalize on the free dinner and drinks. That's right, Homewood Suites serves complimentary alcohol which you'll need. Tip these people you greedy, cheap, scrimping scum bags, I digress. Homewood Suites also has complimentary shuttle service. It's very easy to take it to and from Lake Merritt BART Station. From there you can get almost anywhere in the Bay Area.
This area has color, not colords, I know what you're thinking. It has character, unlike you.
