Hotels in Oakland near Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum

The Oakland Coliseum Introduction

Home of the National Football League's (NFL) Oakland Raiders and The Oakland Athletics baseball team, The Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum (known as the Oakland Coliseum) hosts big music and sporting occasions. The Raiders average over 50,000 fans for home games, but the best atmosphere is in the adjacent Oracle Arena, when The Golden State Warriors basketball team are playing. A 15-minute stroll over the bridge across the Nimitz Freeway takes you to San Leandro Bay and, for bargain hunters, it’s just under a mile on foot to the Coliseum Public Market, a daily flea market with live music at weekends.
