Space in room was good
Amtrak ran every 15/20 mins just 25mtrs from the hotel tooting its hooter for a minute each time to warn pedestrians poss danger!!!! Staff very poorly trained Facilities in hotel poor... No Resto, no tea facilities,gave us a poor room to start with until we asked for an alternative... Poor...but so is Oakland.. Avoid
The staff...the customer service was the best I have ever experienced, and I travel quite a bit. The location was excellent. Close to the ferry to San Francisco, loaded with good restaurants within walking distance. A movie theater across the street. Perfect and lovely at the Holidays
Everything, especially the view
There was one slight discomfort, our table wasn't balanced, it tended to rock
Beautiful lobby with an inviting fireplace where we sat and had our breakfast on those cold Oakland mornings! Coffee and tea made the lobby an additional plus. Great location, on the waterfront. Charming restaurant next door. Very dog friendly.Warm and helpful staff.
Bed too soft.
The room was nice with a partial view of the water. It was on the second floor with a balcony. The wine in the evening by the roaring fire was great.
The walls are so thin you can hear the people 'groaning' next to you. The train wakes you up. The valet got ink pen on my brand new leather tan seats when he parked the car Christmas Eve! No one suggested a discount for me, just shrugged. I'm still trying to remove it with alcohol and leather cleaner. Just got the car.
It's a fun location in Jack London Square, which is looking a bit worse for wear. Must have be having problems b/c of heavy police & security around. Glad their trying to keep it safe. Staff was very friendly and nice.
Walls are pretty thin and they didn't seem to try And keep the revellers quiet when they came if from parties on Sat night, at least on the first floor.
Front desk staff.
The noise from the maids slamming the doors and thrusting the vacuum cleaner against the adjacent walls, way to early. I had to move rooms three times due to lack of communication from staff. I asked for water views bath tub and refrigerator and microwave, I did not receive my prior request. I had children slamming doors and being offensive in the adjacent room. My friend was physically assaulted in the lobby from people who where not even staying at the hotel. I will never stay there again and would have left if it where not for the front desk staff. The manager did not even apologize for ALL my inconvenience.
So far.... my checking account is completely screwed. If you value your cash flow, this is not the place to stay.
The hotel was perfectly situated to take in the area. It was clean and comfortable and seemed like the bedroom had been recently updated. Love the Jack Loudon Square area. Would definitely stay again.
The bathroom seemed a little dated. But it was a good size.
I love the balcony and the view of the dock! They layout of the room was unique. The bath amenities were nice as it didn't dry the hair or skin. Overall, very peaceful stay. The staff were very friendly too! It's a beautiful hotel!
Although staff were friendly, I feel they need to pay more attention to detail, my boyfriend came in after I checked in and I asked them to leave a key for him in case I was out or deep asleep. (Had a long day, and flight) The front desk agent took his ID, (forgot to give it back to him), and also asked for his credit card to swipe the charges. That shouldn't have been done as I already checked in and used my card. They also charged us for two car in valet when we only had one vehicle, for one night. They did handle the issue well, and it was resolved. Please be advised to be extra careful. We enjoyed our stay and would love to come back again soon!
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.
