waterfront hotel seems to get it's fair share of bashing here on tripadvisor. well, i'm stepping up to say that all this bashing is generally underserved.
we were there for a two night run of shows at the fox theater. the hotel rooms are very nice, the service is very good and the location also is very good. oakland, from downtown to jack london square, has REALLY improved over the past few years. there are many nice/interesting restaurants and good craft beer/wine joints, and they are all within walking distance or a free bus ride from the waterfront hotel (the free B - look it up when you get there). waterfront also is right next to the ferry station across to fisherman's wharf. BART station is also close.
the bottom line is, i'm not really sure what there is to complain about, at all.
