My stay at the waterfront came about by accident when another Hilton property was booked and they were unable to accommodate me. The moment I arrived at this place I actually got excited. The decor inside the lobby is awesome with tattoo flash framed and roaring fire I actually hung out in the lobby instead of in the room, which... More

The accommodations at the Waterfront Hotel are absolutely spectacular! The front desk staff went way above and beyond in every way. I would like to thank the entire crew. You made a trip that will be remembered forever! I highly recommend celebrating any special occasion here. I know we will. Mary Ellen, Kenny, and the entire front desk staff we... More

Staying here is like going home. Comfortable rooms (our corner with balcony 202) with killer views of the busy Oakland Harbor. The ferry to San Francisico is right outside your door. Excellent restaurants walking distance. Don't miss Bocanova and Jack's Oyster Bar. Chicken and waffles is close by for late nights too! The friendly staff, Keurig coffemakers in rooms and... More

This is a charming hotel a very nice view of the bay and docks very quiet and restful. What makes this place rock, is the staff. Starting with Pablo, the valet at the door, it just went smoothly from there. I would recommend this hotel.

Very nice facility and great location for Jack London Square, Old/Down/Up Town Oakland and transportation to the city. Regular close train traffic and related noise but expected because of location. Wall and ceiling/floor are thin so any noisy neighbors will be a disturbance. Ear plugs are provided so the property recognizes the noise issue. Great property if sound sleeper, not... More

The staff was great. But much appreciation to Sherell, she was exceptional. She went above and beyond in my every request to ensure that I had a great stay. She made great local recommendations and was able to provide information on things I had in mind to do. An overall good experience. I loved that the hotel was right on... More

My husband and I were traveling through San Francisco with our 5 kids and needed 2 rooms for everyone. We chose the Waterfront Hotel because it was an affordable option that still seemed very nice based on TA. We were very happy with our choice. We took the water shuttle to the ferry building in SF from the ferry stop... More

We try to get up here at least once a year, the hotel is at a great location with very easy and enjoyable access to downtown San Francisco, Jack London Square, Fishermen's Wharf and everything else. We simply jump on the special ferry for the Giants game and to access downtown saving us all that hassle with driving and parking... More
