We were in Emeryville to go fishing on a full day boat. The hotel is really close to the landing. It was nice to have restaurants and shopping just across the street so there was minimal need to drive. The staff was super friendly and the room was very clean and comfortable all at a fair price. This will be our hotel of choice when we’re in town.

Stayed there for 3 days, tv stopped working the first evening, Next morning tried to take a shower only to find out that there is no hot water. Asked the front desk if there is hot water issue, the reply was to.let the water run for 10 minutes or longer. Needless to say it didnt work. So ended up taking cold showers for 3 days. Stayed at this property before, when it was still Marriott brand, and this stay was extremely disappointing. Probably will not stay there again.
