If you are not on the ocean side you have to contend with the train going by 3-4 times a day and at night with the loud whistle blowing. The rooms are not very well insulated.

Cons: Attention to detail. Although this facility is "generally" clean and well kept, there are little things here and there that demand attention.
Location: Close to everything - restaurants, entertainment, public transportation, ferry to San Francisco, AmTrak.
We stay here on and off, but whenever we stay in Oakland for sure. Walking distance to restaurants and entertainment, and walking distance to the San Francisco ferry. Staff is very friendly and accomodating. Facility is generally clean and well kept.

Hidden Gem ~

Was not surprised given the Joie de Vie reputation. The hotel is smallish so no cavernous lobby ...but this staff was uner nice. The rooms have character and yet aren't small dark or dreary. There's not a lot of umph in the decor, just sorta IKEA like ...

Waterfront review

Overall very nice. Railroad train going by is a problem with sleeping in. Neighborhood is being redeveloped and very nice. The cafe not officially attached to hotel is very nice, accommodating and was great for breakfast.
