The Lack of Flexibility Lost the Hotel a Guest.
The hotel is in a great location near the ferry that can take you to San Francisco. The woman at the Valet station was extremely helpful. Although the goal is a nautical theme, the hotel is still is a bit dated and will need some renovations to justify the price point. My biggest problem with The Waterfront is that they would not accept cash for my stay up front. I am fully aware that hotels take a credit card for incidentals and any damage that may occur in the room. However I was told they couldn't take cash for the stay and they had no flexibility on the policy despite the fact that it is not prominently communicated. I appreciate the many reps at Hotels.com who tried to to intervene on my behalf. They were determined to take the first night so I stayed there and moved to another hotel the next day.

Disappointing View
We had a great time, but we were disappointed by our room. We paid extra for a balcony thinking we have AT LEAST a partial water view. Instead we faced the side of a building and a parking lot. I would recommend being very clear about your room expectations with the front desk.
