If you know Embassy Suites, you'll know this place. The rooms are clones of ES rooms anywhere, albeit clean, and tastefully decorated.
The service is friendly, if a bit detached.
We had a room with a phenomenal view of Mt. Diablo on one of the hottest days of the year (104), so we did make use of the air conditioning!
The breakfast was a little odd, when walking towards the dining area, the sausages, French toast and hash browns are in warming pans right at the entrance to the grill area, the omelette station (where, oddly enough, you have to ask for bacon) is inside in a separate area, and the juice, cereal, and bread are in yet another room. The food quality was fair.
My biggest problem with the property was the valet parking: it's mandatory (which I don't really mind if it's well done - it isn't). There was a large crowd, and cars were brought up and parked in front of the port cochere, then other cars would be brought up and double parked next to those unattended vehicles; the end result was a traffic jam which took up to 10 minutes to negotiate when returning to the hotel.
Within a reasonable distance of the property are a Boston Market, Sweet Tomatoes, Fuddrucker's, Target, Walgreen's, multiple Starbucks and myriad other outlets.
If they sort out the parking, I would return.
