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 stayed here on our wedding night. It was our first choice but the price was steep. Over a few weeks we saw the nightly rate hover above budget. Then, suddenly, the day before our wedding they had an Expedia offer for 50% that rate and we nabbed a king room with a city lights view. We checked into a... More

I've been staying at the Waterfront Hotel in Jack London Square in Oakland a few times a year for several years now. It's become an unexpected love affair. The location is amazing - right in the center of Jack London Square where there are fabulous restaurants and beautiful walkways, benches, bars and dining on the water. The hotel has a... More

Stayed one night after attending a birthday celebration at the hotel. If time had permitted, after staying at hotel, I would have liked to have been able to stay longer. Front desk staff was warm, friendly, professional and informative! Especially Imee and Sherell. Lovely area with several restaurants from which to select. Had a Plaza view, would try waterfront on...

We stayed here for 2 nights in late July and couldn't be happier with our stay. The hotel was very clean, the view of the harbor was lovely & we had lots of choices for walking-distance restaurants. The staff were all very friendly and even had some great suggestions for us to do together as a family (Bikefest, Farmer's Market... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in August, very laid back welcoming hotel in great location. Weather and pool was fab after 11 hour flight! Took Bart from airport which was great, but couldn't get taxi from Bart station to hotel! Do ring hotel for shuttle bus to collect you if you are taking Bart from airport. Not a long walk... More

With family in Oakland, we were delighted to find such a terrific hotel. It will be a pleasure to return to The Waterfront for our future visits to the area. We have already booked our next visit. This is a very attractive, comfortable hotel. Our room had a view of the marina and it was such a treat to see... More
