I really like this hotel. The location is quite convenient as it is located in Jack London Square- Oakland, CA. This means it is in close proximity to the ferry boat into San Francisco, the BART, a large movie theater, Yoshi's jazz club, in addition to being right on the waterfront. It's fashioned as a boutique hotel and it fits that bill quite nicely. The price was reasonable as compared to other hotels in the area. The front desk person offered me a significant upgrade into a suite for an extra $40, which we were quite delighted with. The lobby is snappy and smart looking. There is a nautical theme, of course. The room (we were in the "new wing") was extremely large with generally nice appointments. Construction is a bit rickety as you can hear footsteps above you (wood frame construction vs concrete). But, overall, it was a nice value is a great location.
