We and our wedding guests loved the hotel. Newly renovated rooms are beautiful, beds are unusually comfortable.We had a quiet room with an interesting view of the Port of Oakland. The staff was friendly and efficient.
The same cannot be said for their restaurant (Pearl's). We arranged for a post-wedding group breakfast well in advance. They cancelled it and didn't tell us until I happened to call the day before to confirm it. They then promised to provide a complimentary breakfast in the hotel itself with a reserved table and centerpiece. When we all arrived, we discovered that nothing was arranged and the hotel staff had never been informed. It was a very embarrassing and frustrating experience. The hotel staff immediately invited us to be their guests in their breakfast nook, which saved the day. The restaurant never called to apologize or make amends in any way.
