We stayed at the Waterfront Hotel for six nights and had an adjoining room for our daughter and son-in-law and 6-month old baby. We found the hotel very, very accommodating to our needs and the staff was wonderful. Our rooms were ready when we arrived and the crib was in the correct room. The staff was very helpful with the...

Friendly service and good value. Close to ferry so theres no need to drive. What a fun way to get around. Nice park and trail to walk the dog. Lots to do in Oakland too. Felt safe and would go back again.

THE GOOD: The place is clean and well-maintained; loved the nautical theme. Free wi-fi was very helpful. The room was a good size for 2 people, and bed was very comfortable; extra plush pillows were a definite plus. THE BAD: You have to pay for parking. It says it's valet, but we were told where we could park, parked it... More

I come to Oakland on business quite often and I have never had a hotel treat me with more friendliness and hospitality as the Waterfront Hotel. Every staff member treats you like part of their extended family. The hotel itslf sits right on the water and the ambience is terrific! The beds are extremely comfortable and the service impeccable!

The help was superb and very customer friendly, especially Daniel. Only negative would be the trains comeby frequently until 11:00 pm.

I bought a package that I thought was a good deal, but when I read the fine print, it was very poor value. I paid $ 239 for room that overlooked a roof. I thought it included breakfast and a $50 voucher per day, but it did not. When I checked in I requested a good room but this is... More

The staff was so friendly and helpful, especially Daniel in valet parking. The location was great...really enjoyed the Farmers Market at Jack London Square which was within walking distance. It was nice to walk along the waterfront. And the bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I've experienced. Loved it!

Ok stay at what seems to be a touch overpriced hotel. Nautical themed, it lies on the bay in Oakland, Jack London Square. Rooms were fine, bed was too. But the trains coming thru all night really caused a racket. Finally put the tv on just to create some white noise. No real issues with the place, the restaurant was... More

I stayed two nights last weekend at the Waterfront Hotel and found the staff to be warm and friendly. The bell hop even offered to drive me to the BART station a few blocks away. Between the front desk staff and the concierge/bell hop, they could not do enough. The hotel has a perfect location on the Oakland Estuary with... More
