We spent our anniversary at the Claremont and were treated very well. We got upgraded to a suite with exceptional views. Room was decorated with roses. We had a perfect day at the spa, the pool and the restaurants. Great service!
The Waterfront Hotel is ideally located between the San Francisco Bay Ferry and Jack London Square where jazz club Yoshi's is located. The ferry takes you to the Ferry Building in San Francisco or to Pier 41 which is at Fisherman's Wharf and is located next to Pier 39, a major tourist destination. We used the Ferry every day for five days.
The hotel itself is perfection. I would say that the bell staff is lacking in attentiveness, and I say this with more than a few year's experience in dealing with them. You can tip them, and they will still forget to bring your bags up. However, the housekeeping staff is outstanding, and they deserve praise, recognition and much better than average gratuities for each day's care of your room. The desk attendants are also very attentive and helpful. They will do anything to enhance your experience at the Waterfront. The valet guys are also excellent. They can't do enough for you.
I will not downgrade this hotel because of the bell staff because everything else is excellent. Just be warned on that one issue.
The Rose Garden Inn far exceeded my expectations. The rooms are very clean. The facilities appeared to have been recently upgraded. Bathrooms are great. Common areas are very clean. There's free parking on the side, which is great if you're driving to Berkeley. The downtown Berkeley Bart is only about a twenty/thirty minute walk away. If you're planning on traveling to the San Francisco or Berkeley, the Rose Garden Inn is a great option. The free continental breakfast is superb. The staff is very kind.
I chose this hotel based on its proximity to the start of the Oakland Triathlon not expecting to become a repeat guest but I am definitely staying here for any of my Bay Area adventures. The room was clean, had everything we needed and with a Starbucks and a 24Hr Subway right next door we were set. The morning breakfast had everything you could need to start your day. The staff was very pleasant and the view from our room across to Alameda was beautiful.
This Oakland hotel, located within 2 miles of Jack London Square, is also within 9 miles of the Chabot Space & Science …More
I wasn't in my room much, but wish I would have been. The views were amazing, the air felt refreshing. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. My only disappointment was that I wish there was a mini- fridge. Wonderful spa, indoor pool, and gym.
