We stayed two days at the Waterfront Hotel and it was marvelous. The staff was extremely helpful giving suggestions for transportation to San Francisco. The ferry to Fishermens Pier was only a two minute walk from the hotel. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We never heard the trains that others complained about! We did eat at Miss Pearls, the restaurant that is attached to the hotel and enjoyed it tremendously. The food was fantastic! I would definitely stay at the Waterfront Hotel again.
