Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Jack London Square
About Jack London Square
Down by the Oakland docks, you may hear <em>The Call of the Wild</em>: before Jack London wrote his adventure bestseller, he came here looking for trouble and inspiration. A century later, you can still find both at Heinold's First and Last Chance Saloon, which has miraculously survived since 1880. Wolf-print Jack London Path staggers from Heinold's toward the docks and Yoshi's, California's landmark jazz club—though savvy adventurers stay alert around the Amtrak station and parking garages. Flanking the San Francisco ferry dock are waterfront hotels, swanky sunset-view bars and the USS Potomac, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's presidential yacht during World War II. Come hungry: California bistros are popping up in Jack London Square warehouses and the palm-lined plaza hosts Sunday farmers markets and food festivals.
