Well, it's an improvement over staying at Jack London Square; however, it's proximity to the freeways makes it quite noisy if you stay on the traffic side vs. the ocean view side. I happened to be there during the oil tanker spill and fire, so the traffic getting was a little hard - that aside, the little 5-7 muchies were good, but I stayed on the non-view side the first night - the window ampified the three highway/freeways lanes and BART system made the traffic drone horrible for me - I did not sleep in it even with the fan on all night :P. I had to pay more for a change to the view side the next night - you can lightly hear traffic, but the side away from the freeway is much better - you can even leave off the fan and be comfortable, and I closed the bathroom door to void out the running toilet. Staff at the desk were nice, but they are limited for shuttle service - only runs on the hour to the airport, and only to a few zones in the downtown area on the half-hour. I probably would stay in Emeryville or Alameda when I return next time. Only one dockside restuarant is close by at this hotel, you have to drive East to the Island entrance for any quaint food locations.
