Just slept. Didn’t get a chance to interact much. But the people that I encountered were very friendly and the bed slept really well.

Beautiful location, very poorly managed.

Pros: Convenient location with nice views of the marina and water. Nice gardens. Ok restaurant and bar with nice views.
Cons: Parking should be free. The staff need training and direction. Some are great. Some are incompetent, uncaring, unresponsive, or surly.
Location: It's right on the Berkeley marina. Good for hiking or jogging. Convenient to highways.
I plan to stay in this area a lot, and hoped this hotel would become my regular. It's a convenient location and has nice exterior views and gardens and good views from the restaurant. However, our stay was made less than pleasant by erratic staff performance. Examples: - On our first night, we had dinner at 9:00 in a nearly empty restaurant. 30 minute after ordering, we asked about our food, and were told that they had overcooked it and had to start over - so it came 20 minutes after that. - There was just one hangar in the closet, so I requested more. They were provided only after a 2nd request, on the 2nd day. - We left our room with the lights off and the curtains closed, and found it that night with all the lights on and the curtains wide open. Since the room faced the parking lot on the first floor, this left our things visible to anyone driving by. I told the front desk this was poor security practice, and that the maid should be told to leave the lights and curtains the way they found them in occupied rooms. - So for the next two days the maid turned the heat off from where we had set it, so the room was freezing upon our return. - Worst of all: They have a nice pool, with hot tub. Posted hours are 5:00 am to 11:00 pm. Perfect for me since I like a dip in the morning. One morning two maintenance guys insisted I leave the hot tub at 7:30 am just after I had gotten in because they wanted to clean it then (instead of when it was closed).

Front desk having a rough day?

The staff in the restaurants were great. Cannot say that much about front desk staff. The views were amazing however the rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious.

Terrific, and very friendly staff!

Pros: The staff was fantastic. Just some of the friendliest staff I've ever encountered.
Cons: Why is this required Travelocity? Nothing - there was nothing I encountered that I didn't like about this hotel.
Location: We were there for shows at The Fillmore and UC Berkeley. The hotel is convenient to San Francisco and Berkeley, but isolated on the marina.

"Taking a Break from it all"

Pros: That is was near the boat harbor.
Cons: Nothing
Location: The location was perfect close to everything I was interested in doing. Just a few miles to San Francisco.
We thought the room was very comfortable. The large flat screen was great enjoying a couple of basketball games. Relaxing weekend from what it seems like non-stop work since October 2015. We will be back.

Cookies were good!

Front desk staff were friendly. Love the cookies but my daughter preferred plain chocolate chip cookies, without cinnamon. Plenty of parking spaces. The beds were comfortables & linens were nice & clean. The walls are thin. You can hear the people talking in the hallway & hear the water running when the next door showered. The bathroom ceiling paint was pealing off; needs repainting.
