"Thoroughly modern" -- Fodor's

Why We Love It

  • In Oakland’s quirky Jack London Square, a district of regenerated warehouses and yachts
  • The ferry terminal is right next door, launching boats across the bay to the SF Ferry Building
  • A rich nautical theme pervades the hotel, honoring the maritime roots of the neighborhood
  • Lungomare “is a beautiful restaurant in a prime bayside location” (SF Chronicle)


A giant anchor tattooed on the front of the building alerts visitors for what they’re in for at this nautical-themed hotel on an estuary of the San Francisco Bay. Steamer trunks, starfish and compass roses bedeck the lobby and halls of this hotel. Rooms are papered over with oar patterns and vintage oceanliner prints, lit by hurricane lanterns, and have sliding doors that open to patios.

Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the property, and during the week the hotel hosts a complimentary afternoon wine and cheese hour. On the weekends, the neighborhood hosts a farmers market and craft market.

A historic waterfront neighborhood originally used for shipping, Jack London Square has regenerated with boutiques, restaurants and cinemas filling its repurposed old warehouses and sparkling new buildings. Flashy yachts flock around the marina, and a complimentary shuttle serves downtown Oakland.

The hotel is right next door to the Oakland Ferry Terminal. Here, sea-farers can catch boats that ply across the bay to Angel Island, the San Francisco Ferry Building and AT&T Park. Voyages take about half an hour.
