Balconies, fireplaces, and waterfront views of San Francisco Bay sounds just about right for a nautical-themed hotel in Oakland’s Jack London Square. The big fireplace in the lobby is a boon on foggy evenings and the outdoor pool is a plus for sunny days. This is a family-friendly location, within walking distance to some of the best dining in Oakland, including adjacent Plank, with its beer garden, bowling and bocce. Ferries to and from San Francisco stop right here for a carless 30-minute jaunt across the bay. Collect or use Hyatt points.Photo: Courtesy of Waterfront Hotel
