“Great Hotel, can't find better outside of SF!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

I had my wedding party of about 40 rooms staying here over the past weekend, and I couldn't be happier with the hotel, the level of service from everyone from the bellhops to the valet guys to the front desk, to the sales team (yes! even the sales team!). My wedding was in Pleasanton, which was about 30 minutes away, and the hotel did everything they could to make my day awesome.

If you are staying anywhere in the East Bay, I couldn't give this hotel higher marks. It also helps that it is right by the Pleasant Hill Bart, so you can come directly from SFO to the hotel using BART and then rent a car in Walnut Creek, which is often a lot cheaper than renting at the airport.

I would rate this hotel extremely high. Great, upscale, safe location just a 1.5 blocks off the freeway in Walnut Creek, but far enough away to not hear any noise. On one side you get wonderful views of Mt. Diablo. All the staff including the valet guys, the front desk, everyone is friendly, helpful, and professional. The rooms are very clean, and well put together. What this hotel is excellent at is the "little things"; like having more than enough quality towels, more than enough quality pillows, double shower heads with enough water pressure, shower drains that drain properly, built in electrial outlets/chargers for cell-phones, laptops, i-pads. The rooms aren't huge, but not small either, just right for a couple. Nice trendy hotel bar with sittting areas with comfy couches and chairs. Sweet bartender Alexandria. The hotel also has a wonderful workout/gym facility with basketball court, volleyball court, large outdoor heated pool with lifeguard. I have stayed at great hotels like the Bellagio in Vegas and this hotel is "on top of it's game" in the same way as the Bellagio is. Whenever I am in the Walnut Creek area this will be where I stay from now on.

Room Tip: Ask for a 5th floor room with a Mt. Diablo view.

If you or your company can afford this place, you like to work out or take fitness classes, enjoy delicious healthy food, and you need to BART anywhere, this is THE place to stay. I was on a business trip and brought my wife, after seeing the rooms and workout schedule she wanted to move in! I highly recommend this hotel.

We enjoyed our stay here and it's great value. The rooms are a good size and the gym is amazing. Breakfast/brunch is also very good and not expensive. The matresses in the rooms are not quite up to the standard of other more luxurious hotels, which is why I would say the sleep quality is only average. Overall though this is a very good hotel - modern with excellent amenities and very convenient for Walnut Creek and the surrounding areas. One small caution: If you are flying out of SFO on a weekday morning, allow plenty of time to drive to the airport as the rush hour traffic heading into SF over the Bay Bridge can be pretty dire.

Stayed there with the entire family over the xmas period. The family enjoyed the fabulous sports facilities, the kids club was great, the resto is ok, and the rooms are big and comfortable. Staff is generally friendly.

Pros: Easy and fast check in, courteous staff, nice facilities. Room was large, clean, VERY comfortable bed with choice of pillows, free WiFi. Fantastic restaurant (finally a hotel restaurant with healthy menu choices - my wife is a dietician . . . ). Staff were very friendly, helpful. The athletic club in the hotel was impressive, equal to any luxury gym I've ever been in.

Cons: no self-park option. Having to deal with Valet 5-6 times per day was cumbersome even though the valet guys were all really nice.

This hotel is sparkling clean from the lobby to the grounds and especially the rooms. Very fresh-looking decor throughout the hotel and in the rooms. The linens and towels all have a very luxurious feel to them. The amenities are all top-notch, and the bed is every bit the equal of the Westin Heavenly Bed (my go-to comparison of excellence!) for comfort. This is also a quiet hotel despite being close to the BART station; rooms are very quiet.

Every person you come into contact with seems happy and eager to help. Service is always swift and definitely with a smile.

That's enough to justify a five-star rating, but the best part of this hotel is the Club Sport workout facility. Once again, cleanliness is evident. The place is huge, with cardio stuff out the wazoo (treadmills, steppers, ellipticals, bikes, you name it), weight machines, free weights, racquetball, huge outdoor pool for laps, spin cycle rooms, basketball court...I think you're getting the picture.

Add to all the equipment, classes for water aerobics, spin, yoga and on and on. All included in the price of the room. If you like keeping fit while traveling, this place is a mecca. My wife likes waterobics and she loves the classes, several each day. I like the weights and ellipticals, and even when it looks like there are plenty of people in the huge main floor, you can always find a machine.

The only caveat is parking/valet service. The free parking garage is somewhat inconvenient and I had a hard time figuring out how to stay on the 'free' side. We have tried valet parking on previous stays but it was slow (generally 15 minutes minimum to get your car) and expensive ($19 per day). The slowness isn't because the valets themselves aren't trying; they hustle and run like crazy; it's more the parking garage setup than lack of effort. I know the valet expense isn't much compared to New York City, but come on, this is Walnut Creek, California. I'd probably do self-park again.

The parking is really minor when you put it in the context of a really super hotel with a great health club to use.
