We chose the waterview side, and loved every minute of it! Pink clouds in the morning and red sky in the evening. We loved the bugle playing in the morning and in the evening for the flag ceremony of the military compound across the water. Loved the view of the boats right under our window. Great bed, lovely pool, great people. A great complementary breakfast with eggs, pastry, sausages, waffles. We had to stick to fruit, cereals and coffee because we are vegan. Our third stay there, definitively our favorite place when in Oakland!
