Our Story

Waterfront Hotel

San Francisco may get most of the attention, but Oakland has just as much to offer — and without all the crowds. Jack London Square alone can keep you occupied for days with its fine dining, cinema complex, nightlife and boutique shops. You can even rent a kayak or charter a boat to see the Bay Area from a different perspective. On the weekends, you can amble through the outdoor artisan marketplace and farmer’s market.

Beyond the square, there are museums and kid-friendly activities galore, including the Oakland Zoo and Fairyland. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore miles of trails in our extensive park system.

Waterfront Hotel is no more than 20 minutes from the Bay Area's major professional and leisure destinations:

  • Twenty-minute ferry ride to San Francisco from our back door
  • Ten blocks from the Oakland Convention Center
  • Three-minute ride to downtown Oakland (including BART) with our complimentary shuttle service

We're also conveniently located near the area's transportation outlets:

  • Ten blocks from BART
  • Ten-minute drive from Oakland International Airport
  • Five-minute walk to Amtrak
  • Convenient access to Interstates 80, 880, 580, 980 and Highway 24
