Every Joie de Vivre property truly does add to the joy in our lives. This one located on the marina, with a spectacular westward view of the Bay and San Francisco, is especially delighteful. The complimentary wine and cheese can be enjoyed in front of the fire or on the terrace. The decor is attractive, the rooms spacious, the service JdV calibre through and through. Our second visit -- we will come up with reasons to return.
What's not to like?
Decor seemed dated
Facility and restaurant was very nice.
The train passing by and waking me up in the middle of the night.
Perfect location and beautiful hotel in Jack London Square. Great destination on the weekends for many amazing food experiences, farmer's market, waterfront activities. Our family loved our stay. Wish we had time to go swimming.
Amtrak tracks are close, but not too bothersome
the view, the bed,
Welcoming , ferindly staff .
Expensive , poor condition , Not value for money.
location, coffee in room and lounge, sauna
This is not a luxury hotel; the price was too high.
View Location Ease of travelling, parking
Location was good. Amenities were good. Staff was good.
Parking was a problem. Prices were steep.
Location: close to old/up/down town, very handy if Jack London Square is having an event. Good restaurants close. Easy ferry access to the city. Large rooms
Walls, ceiling/floor are thin. Loud neighbors next door until 2 AM, stomper above than made multiple cycles of the room every couple hours all night. Trains honking regularly but we expected that because we travelled on the train. They must recognize the noise problem because they provide ear plugs but if you are not used to them, they are an annoyance. TV didn't work but we weren't there to watch TV.
We enjoyed are 5 day stay with you.Rooms were very clean and everything there that we needed down to ear plugs,nice touch for those that needed them.Everyone was exstreamly nice and helpfull. The outside was kept up and clean.Thank you for a wonderful vacation.
We would off liked to have muffins or donuts with are coffee,we also tryed to dine at your restaurant and we waitted so long for them to take our order we just left.
The friendly staff
Letting people know if parking in one of the public garages you recommend that the vehicle can not be retrieved after 1am. You will be able to get into vehicle the fallowing morning I believe around 6am. We were lucky that we caught an employer at the location an they were willing to open the garage for us. But I ended up paying their parking an the. The 25 dollar valet that you're hotel has.
BY THE SEA LOCATION
TRAINS IN THE PROXIMITY. NO BREAKFAST INCLUDED.
I feel price should be around 150 a night. More on weekends.
This hotel is right next to the ferry for people to go to SF game and then get back to a nice place to sleep. We enjoyed exploring Jack London Square.
The place itself is not bad.
Ok so: parking is like $30 a night or something ridiculous like that. There is no parking anywhere else so you are forced to pay. Then you have to tip the valet (sweet guys) who just take your car and park it in front of you. Seriously people, at least park it down the corner. I know that's the American way and parking in California is hell but jee. Add $40 per day on top of hotel room price (you tip when he parks and when he gets the car for you). Second, in the rooms there were creepy messages from cleaning ladies saying "I am...from Algeria, I love travelling and do sports": I wanted to write "less sport and more cleaning the toilet bowl because is filthy on the outside bottom". I hate dirty toilets. If they are not spotless I dont like them.
There was not any night life for young people
Location to ferry Room size okay
Train noise / constant blowing of horn Total rip off valley parking Moved it 30 ft or I moved it scam as they take to parking lot any way of night some times One black up not nice area
The hotel is in a great location on the waterfront. There are jazz clubs, restaurants, a board walk and Saturday market all within walking distance. I loved watching the container ships dock and the sailboats race on the weekend. The staff of the hotel were very nice and gave cheerful service when asked.
The hotel is older. It's been remodeled but that was sometime ago. The noise from passing Amtrack trains that sound their horns at every single intersection FOUR times is unpleasant (especially at night...all night). I think that the desk clerk said that they had some quieter rooms farther from the street, but I think you'd have to be in San Francisco not to hear these hummers.

Spendy - Few inexpensive places t eat
Liked that there was a couch but it was not comfy at all. Everything was clean, amount of towels were good. Loved the microwave, nice for a midnight snack. The earthquake! ;)
The bed was terrible. Squeaky, not a good bed for price paid. In fact I feel like I am owed back money for sleeping on that bed. Room service tray sat in ice room whole stay. Yuck!! We have family in the area and will try the Inn next stay...
The location was nice.
It was weird sharing a balcony with 2 other rooms. It was also very noisy through the night, I could here people outside as well as upstairs and on my own floor.
Like watching the boats.
Everything was fabulous would recommend to family & friends. The Freunds Vancouver B.C.
I did request for balcony but was not provided.
