Guests Are Saying

  • Great location on the waterfront in Jack London Square. Convenient to downtown SF and Oakland Airport. Walking distance to many restaurants. High quality, clean, comfortable bedding. [Transport] service to SF is steps away. This area is quiet and safe.  - VKN_11, TripAdvisor
  • The front clerk was very helpful to me an my 10 month old child. She noticed I had a child and offered a baby crib for my child and a room fridge for the breast milk we had to store to keep fresh. I really appreciated her noticing my situation and tending to it. I actually did not know hotels offered these services. Thanks to the entire stall at the Waterfront Hotel in Oakland.  - alifat, TripAdvisor
  • I am from the East Bay Area and have stayed in many areas/hotels while visiting. This is by far my favorite. I always get a Waterside room which is well worth the extra expense. It is great waking to the sound of the water slapping against the sides of the sailboats and the occasional cry of the seagulls. The staff is very friendly and my rooms have always been immaculate.  - johnuns, TripAdvisor
  • The staff was as friendly and helpful as we have encountered anywhere. They totally went out of their way for their guests. The location was perfect for us, convenient for driving to other locations and for walking along the water, and it is in very close proximity to a variety of restaurants. It is also steps away from the ferry to San Francisco.  - tusli, TripAdvisor
  • My husband and I stayed at the Waterfront Hotel in January for a night on our way home from Hawaii. We flew all night and wanted a luxurious place to stay as a wind down from all the travel. This place was amazing! We felt more relaxed here than we did at our hotel in Hawaii! The staff were extremely accommodating!  - AshleyBellaVista, TripAdvisor
