Great seaside view from room

Great location, and a pleasant experience, close to all the restaurants in Jack London Square. Parking is expensive. Small lobby with a comforting roaring fire, tiny, but adequate, elevator. Located a block from Ferry to San Francisco. Felt safe in immediate area. Comfortable beds. Enjoyed the Sunday Farmer's Market. Boat rentals and school nearby, free shuttle to Chinatown and other close sites. Would stay again.

Unsafe area?!

Forced to use valet parking as people at check-in said, this was not a safe area! Really surprised me. Could not park the car elsewhere. Hotel was fine - rooms are clean and nicely decorated. Book a room with sea view if you like marinas. It's cool. Very poor was the gym and have you ever seen a dry sauna without a shower? Very unhygienic.

Great Oakland Location & Staff

We enjoyed our first one-night parent get-away so much , we came back for a second stay. The hotel is perfectly clean and affordable, great views from the waterside rooms and minimal noise from street side. Walking distance to great food, movies and entertainment. Both times we had wonderful customer service from the front desk. We even were upgraded free of charge.

My Active Duty Husbands Birthday

Beautiful Hotel.....perfect location! The room was beautiful. We ordered room service for breakfast and it was very expensive and a huge waste. My husband ate the created flakes and that's about it. Dinner at the beautiful restaurant on site however made up for it! The views from our beautiful suite and the AMAZING FIREPLACE in the main gathering of the hotel.... perfect!
