California Home+Design Names East Bay’s Waterfront Hotel As One of the 50 Best Designed Hotels

Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — California Home+Design recently named the East Bay’s Waterfront Hotel, a dog-friendly hotel that is perfect as a wedding venue, as one of the top 50 Best Designed Hotels. In the latest issue, Waterfront Hotel was ranked as No. 49 for its nautical theme.

“Though the nautical theme of this waterfront hotel is rather literal, it’s also totally charming,” the article in California Home+Design said. “We love the console table made from vintage suitcases and steamer trunks, the wall art that looks like a tatted up sailor’s arm and the big brass fireplace whose chimney is reminiscent of a ship’s funnel.”

In addition to the honor of being included in the 50 Best Designed Hotels, Waterfront Hotel was also ranked No. 9 in the Best Brunch category of Diner’s Choice.

Waterfront Hotel’s Miss Pearl’s Restaurant and Lounge combines good food and live music with beautiful views of the waterfront. Executive chef Eddie Blyden has created a menu that draws its inspiration from the South, but with a modern approach to comfort food. Classics such as seafood Jambalaya and Gumbo share the menu with the freshest seafood, grilled ribeyes, pork chops and appetizers like the New Orleans BBQ shrimp, roasted beets and goat cheese fritters.

“When you stay at the Waterfront Hotel your getting away from the big box inner city hotel and experiencing the Bay Area’s only waterfront hotel,” Lucky Sanabria of Waterfront Hotel said. “Experience the outdoor heated pool right on the water or relax on your private balcony. Enjoy our dog-friendly hotel and all the gems that Jack London Square and Oakland have in store for you!”

About Waterfront Hotel

Waterfront Hotel is no more than 20 minutes from the Bay Area's major professional and leisure destinations and is a 25-minute ferry ride to San Francisco from the back door. San Francisco may get most of the attention, but Oakland has just as much to offer — and without all the crowds. Jack London Square alone can keep people occupied for days with its fine dining, cinema complex, nightlife and boutique shops. One can even rent a kayak, bicycle or charter a boat to see the Bay Area from a different perspective. On the weekends, guests can amble through the outdoor artisan marketplace and farmer’s market.
