“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

The last night of our three week road trip was spent at the Rose Hotel. Talk about saving the best till last! Shame we only spent one night here. The hotel is like walking into a show home only with feeling. If you need a over night stop before departing from SFO then you won't do better than this, just an hours drive from the airport. Perfect!

Our stay at The Rose Hotel was absolutely perfect in every respect. This small inn style property in downtown Pleasanton, designed for the higher end clientele, is perfect for every occasion. The room was large, the oversized jacuzzi perfect, the beds comfortable, wi-fi strong, and everything was spotlessly clean. The breakfast selection is somewhat limited by very typical of a good starter for the day. The attention to detail is so apparent and so valued by those with high expectations.

Thank you for your comments including that concerning our breakfast buffet. You are correct in that it is designed more for travelers on a tight schedule than for a more leisurely meal.

Nice hotel, pretty rooms and excellent service. The dark side is that there's no gym, not even a treadmill, no swimming pool, anywhere to exercise... The breakfast is poor (included in the rate) and no service. Honestly, in general, not worthy for that price.

We agree with the "old style" decor as that is intentional, i.e. "old world". Also with the fact that we have no gym. However, there is an in-house exercise room with treadmills, an elipse, free weights, exercise balls and mats. Guest passes are available to a local full service athletic club with two swimming pools, racket sports, golf range, etc.

The continental breakfast is self-service with 6 varieties of fresh fruit, bagels and lox, cold cuts, hard boiled eggs, fresh pastries, toaster products, hot and cold cereals including Swiss granola, yogurt and cottage cheese, juices and Peet's coffee and tea. While we do not provide a "hot" breakfast, a 50's style diner is just across the street.

On your next visit our Front Desk Associate will be more specific about our exercise and breakfast options.

Extremely friendly staff, very comfy hotel with attention to details makes this almost like a home away from home. Compared to lots of other hotels "the Rose" have really understood what a business traveller needs.

This is our 2nd year in a row to stay at The Rose Hotel! It is very inviting, comfortable and makes us feel welcome! We come to Pleasanton every year for a big car show and look forward to our stay. The room is cozy and elegant. The staff goes overboard to help you with anything from mapquest to dinner reservations, etc. They have a wonderful breakfast each day. They are centrally located in downtown Pleasanton and so we walked to many little restaurants and shops. It was just a great time. We already have reservations for next year! P.S. They have a huge soaking tub too and it was great!!!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are going to be great. We like the room on the 3rd floor in the front of the...

The entire staff looks forward to the annual arrival of the "Good Guys" group. It is a real pleasure to be of service to them as they are so appreciative of everything.

One of the top hotel stays in all of America. The rooms and the service are perfect. The location is in the heart of Pleasanton and walking distance from great restaurants and sights. A lot of wineries very close by. The front desk staff was very helpful.

Thank you for the affirmation that "Old World charm" is still relevant. We intend to maintain it even as we refurbish.

I stayed at the Rose Hotel for a week in May. The hotel has an old world charm with first class accommodations! The double bed room was large and beautiful! You have all the new amenities of a first class hotel with the bathroom luxurious as you would find in a hotel in Vegas (like the Wynn )or a Ritz Carlton! The attention to detail is extraordinary! Complimentary breakfast is wonderful and a delight to sit in their lovely lobby area.It is located on Main Street, steps away from stores and dining. I would highly recommend a stay at the Rose Hotel , you won't be disappointed!
