My husband, daughter, and I took a trip from L.A. on the Starlight Amtrack train to Oakland and stayed in this gem of a hotel prior to boarding our cruise ship in San Francisco and after disembarking the ship. We loved our stay both times. We had booked a suite and were upgraded to an ocean view the first visit and were lucky enough to have the handicapped suite on our return. Both rooms were more than spacious - they were HUGE. Both rooms had fire places and very comfortable beds. More than that, the room service from the restaurant downstairs was amazing. They even sent up a note with our dinner thanking us for dining with them AND gave us complimentary organic ice cream! I can't wait to go back and enjoy some more time there. I'd HIGHLY recommend this place. Plus, we had our pack and play for our little girl and the room was big enough to have her sleep at one end and we could have lights on and type or read in comfort in the other end of the suite. WONDERFUL!
