Highly Recommend! This is the place to stay!
We highly recommend as this hotel is newly remodeled, clean, and has a very friendly and accommodating staff! On weekdays they offer a generous complimentary wine and cheese hour. Conveniently located in the wonderful area of Jack London Square with a variety of restaurants, original coffee shops, wineries, breweries and Sunday Farmers Market. The hotel offers a comfortable lobby with fireplace, beautiful views of the bay, a clean heated pool and comfortable patio. Definitely going back!

Perfect location. Walk around the plaza, take the ferry to Fishermans wharf. Dine at great restaurants within walking distance. Or just enjoy the view.

Cute hotel but the AMTRAK horn is a NO-NO for me
Cute boutique hotel but it is less than a block away from the ARMTRAK rail and the trains blow their horn everytime they pass by, even at night. The hotel provides earplugs, but I could still hear the horn. Clean room, fairly comfy bed, well kept. There was no vending machine in the part of the building where we stayed. The only one was in the main building on the 3rd floor. After we finished the water bottles the hotel kindly provided in the room, it took me 10 mins in the middle of the night to go get more water. What they don't tell you on the website is that they charge $32 for overnight parking. The website just says "parking available". Not fair in my opinion. Borderline deceptive advertising. The area around is nice, as long as you stay within a couple blocks. Wander 4-5 blocks away, and it becomes sketchy at best.

A nice stay in Jack London Square
We stayed at Waterfront Hotel when we went to the Oakland Athletics' fan fest in Jack London Square. The hotel is in an excellent location right on the marina at the Square. The staff were very helpful and so friendly. The hotel has a lovely pool area, warm and sheltered by glass walls right next to the yacht marina - a great place to sit. Our room was spacious and comfortable with a Keurig for coffee and tea and water provided. The bathroom with a bath/shower was also very nice. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel and also a café for a good quick breakfast. Everyone who worked at the hotel was very nice. A very good hotel.
