Expert Reviews
Lonely Planet
Best rooms overlook the bay at this spiffy nautical-themed hotel, with granite baths, big-screen TVs and ultra-comfy beds with feather pillows.
A favorite with business travelers, this hotel is the only one in the area offering private docking facilities and front-door ferry service to San Francisco.
The only waterfront hotel in town, this thoroughly modern, pleasantly appointed Joie de Vivre property sits among the appealing restaurants (including the hotel's own) of Jack London Square.
