I visited Livermore in November, as my boyfriend was there on business opening up the new mall just down the highway. As he already had a room there with a coworker, I booked a seperate room for us, and he came and stayed with me for the three nights I was there.
A lot of people have written that the hotel is outdated, which I don't think it is at all. The inside is very nice, and the rooms are fantastic as well. Very clean, but a little small. One of the things I wasn't thrilled about, was that I stayed during daylight savings when the clocks turned back an hour, and no one changed the clock in our room. Housekeeping was in there on two seperate days, and it was not changed back. For those of you who frequently stay at Hilton properties, you'll know that you can't change the time yourself - the top of the clock is screwed on, and needs a screwdriver to take it off so you can change the time.
The restaurant was a little odd to me. It looked like a big banquet room, with tables very spaced out all around it. It definitely didn't have a restaurant feel. The bar however, was great.
Once I checked out, and my boyfriend went back to his original room with his coworker, he realized he left his cell phone charger in the room we shared. He went to the front desk THREE times on THREE different days and and no one could help him out. He kept being told that someone would ask housekeeping and get back to him. Guess what? No one did. I was pretty unimpressed with that, since Apple chargers aren't the cheapest.
The location is okay. You're within walking distance of a small plaza with a few restaurants and things to do. If you're driving, you're about a 5 minute drive from a Target and Ross and a few other big box stores. If you don't feel like leaving the hotel, the pool is wonderful!
