The hotel is in the Jack London Square on the waterfront of Oakland. It is about 10 blocks (15 minutes on foot) from the 12th Street/Oakland City Center BART station. My room is on the 5th floor (the highest) and has a nice view of the marina. The room is quite large, and it has a shared, long balcony facing the marina. I had problems connecting to the internet through the free wi-fi, but they were resolved after talking to a tech support, who guided me to fetch the IP address and other information. The fitness center is on the small size with one elliptical machine and one treadmill and a couple of weight stations. The hotel probably has a long history because its outside appearance has character and the corridors seem kind of old-fashioned. I'd give this hotel a 3.5 overall rating, if there is such a choice.
