The rooms are very spacious and the beds comfortable.
All staff I encountered were very helpful with directions etc.
There is a handy shuttle bus which goes past for free rides to and from Jack London. The seafood restaurants down there are excellent.
The BART is a 2 minute walk.
As an older female travelling alone I would probably choose not to stay at this hotel again as I did not feel safe walking outside after dark. If travelling with another I am sure it would be fine.
Take care if breakfast is included in your room rate as they charged me for breakfast on one of the mornings. It seems you have to tell them on entry, on ordering and when the bill is presented to not be charged. This error was quickly resolved by reception.
