WHAT OUR NEIGHBORS THINK
"The Residence Inn by Marriott is expected to bring in $1.5 million in additional tax revenue to the city each year, as well as dozens of well-paying, full time union jobs.
This proposal is a win-win for the residents and businesses of Alameda. The Chamber and its members enthusiastically endorse the proposal."
- Mark Sorenson
Executive Director, Alameda Chamber of Commerce
"I’ve always been disappointed that I could never recommend a quality hotel in Alameda when friends and family come to visit. For a family reunion, I reluctantly put my relatives at a hotel on Hegenberger Road.
Imagine rooms with water views and also a new restaurant and bar right in the 94502! I would like the opportunity to have a nice place to host family and friends without leaving the island. "

Harbor Bay Resident
"The Members of our Association cite the desperate need for quality hotel rooms to support their business operations. Members also expressed support for the hotel providing WETA up to 125 overflow parking spaces for the ferry terminal.
The Harbor Bay Business Park Association is solidly in favor of this proposed new hotel."
