The Alameda center point is approximately the area of Downtown Alameda and the area of Fruitvale.

Welcome to Alameda! Spanning both Bay Farm and Alameda Islands, the City of Alameda is situated across the bay from San Francisco, just south of Oakland. Whether you're looking to stay in an upscale hotel with bay views or you prefer a budget-friendly accommodation outside of San Francisco, Alameda offers a variety of hotels to meet your needs.

At the time of the Spanish arrival in the late 18th century, the Ohlone people occupied the area that is now Alameda. The island was a peninsula at the time, and both that low-lying, marshy peninsula and the area in which downtown Oakland currently stands were home to some of the world's largest coastal oak forests. It's no surprise, then, that Alameda takes its name from the Spanish word for “grove of poplar trees.”

The city itself was founded in 1853, consisting of three small settlements. By 1854, it had its first post office, and the San Francisco and Alameda Railroad followed in 1864. The city continued to grow into its modern incarnation, which offers a number of attractions and a highly coveted Mediterranean climate.

Whatever your reasons for visiting Alameda, it's important to find the right hotel that allows you to explore everything the Bay Area has to offer. More from this guide...

Best Time to Visit Alameda, CA

As part of the Bay Area, Alameda is a great place to visit regardless of the season. Summers are warm and dry, with average temperatures hovering around 71 degrees. Keep in mind, though, that summer marks the peak tourist season in the Bay Area, and many travelers come into Alameda and nearby communities to take advantage of competitive hotel rates outside of San Francisco. Because of this, hotels tend to raise their prices, so you'd better book months in advance if you hope to score a good deal.

July marks the annual Alameda Art & Wine Faire as well as the popular Fillmore Street Jazz Festival in San Francisco.

Waiting to travel in the fall can help you save money on your trip to Alameda. Hotel rates drop and tourist crowds taper off starting in September, but you'll still enjoy pleasant weather and sunny skies. Since the temperatures tend to remain in the 70s, fall is a great time to experience the Robert W. Crown Memorial State Beach, a local haven for wind surfers and other outdoor enthusiasts.

Winter brings chilly winds to the Bay Area, but if you don't mind packing a few layers, you can find some incredible hotel rates in Alameda during the off season. Alameda hosts a wonderful Winter Market in January, with arts and crafts, antiques, and culinary delights. There are also plenty of indoor attractions in the Bay Area to bring you in from the cold.

Booking a trip from March through May means beating the tourist rush and landing great hotel rates. Temperatures fall into the mid-60s, so you won't likely want to participate in any water sports, but booking your vacation during the spring can help you offset costs. You can also visit the San Francisco International Film Festival and the two-day, family-oriented Carnaval San Francisco.
