My returns to the Bay Area are inevitably joie-ful when I plan my stay at the Waterfront Hotel.
What diferentiates this place is both the superb location by the estuary and the high-level attention to customer service. I'm close to everything I need and want: convenience and proximity to both downtown Oakland and its environs and to San Francisco. I can catch the ferry just a few steps away and cross the Bay or I can make my way via BART. I love, at the end of the day, sitting on a bench by the water, watching the gulls and pigeons (carefully!) and tracking the incoming and outgoing sea traffic, from sails to containerized ships. Romance, history, colorful personalities. Restaurants abound, and the Waterfront has a new restaurant, Lungomare, that's tops for food and service.
It's a great buy by the Bay!
