Fodor's Expert Review Waterfront Hotel

10 Washington St., Oakland, California, 94607, USA

This thoroughly modern, pleasantly appointed Joie de Vivre property sits among the many high-caliber restaurants of Jack London Square. Some of the nautically themed rooms in the hotel's five-story section overlook the concrete-laden square and have shared balconies; it's worth an upgrade to a water-view room with a private balcony facing the water. Some rooms have fireplaces. Other amenities include on-site fitness center, business center, pool, and spa.
