Pros: It was clean. The waterfront view was nice.
Cons: Their breakfast area is under construction and it was crowded. Trying to get breakfast was irritating. The bed was very bouncy and I could feel the springs. I didn't get much sleep due to the bed. I paid too much for what I got.

Pros: Rooms were good sized, and they had free internet and breakfast. They are right off the 880 which is both good (convenient) and bad (noise). The back side of the hotel was nice, overlooking the waterfront.
Cons: The hotel is currently going through renovations. The lobby / breakfast area is smells of chemicals (paints, carpet glue, insulation) as this is being done. There isn't enough parking for guests, and you may need to park at the plaza next door

Pros: The room was clean.
Cons: Lobby under remodel (total disaster), no effort to even mask the work being done. Remodel is right next to breakfast where food is served, dust seemed to be all over. Breakfast was ok. Half of the outlets in the hotel didn't work. Phone and TV in room didn't work.

Pros:
Cons: I reserved this place because it had a view of the water and paid extra to be on that side of the building. Once I arrived I was told that I was also upgraded to an even nicer room. Once I got inside the room there was a huge willow tree up against my window and I had no view at all. Since I had paid extra for the view to be on that side of building I went down to the front desk and ask for a different room and was told there weren't any and ended up being put on the first floor in a handicapped room. They were remodeling the front of the hotel in the lobby at this time so that was unusable. When I went to park there was no parking left and I had to park on the street in Oakland. Once I got in bed I found there was no remote for the TV. It took 42 minutes for them to bring me one by that time I was asleep. In the morning we asked to speak to a manager and was told he was not there and would get back to us. Several days later he told us he would refund us half of our money but that never happened. Three weeks later we called him again with no luck If you need a place to stay for the night this will do. If you're going here to have a romantic time with your spouse don't bother!
