Embassy Suites Walnut Creek

Oakland, California Coast

The hotel

The classic combo of location and creature comforts, Embassy Suites Walnut Creek is a perfect launch pad for exploring northern California. Just across the road from Pleasant Hill BART (Bay Area Rapid Transport) station, which links you to downtown Oakland and San Francisco, you can stay in all-suite cosiness without missing out on the sights. There’s a free ‘cooked-to-order’ breakfast in the tropical atrium to set you off for the day, from omelettes stuffed with your favourite fillings to simple ‘eggs and bacon’ or ‘coffee and pastry’ pairings. And each night, there’s an evening reception with complimentary drinks and appetisers to greet you back from your sightseeing. If you need a break from exploring, this East Bay hotel is ready with its fitness centre, indoor pool and hot tub.

Have always had excellent experiences at ES, but this was bad. Asked specifically about the cocktail when I booked (had to call; online booking wasn’t working), and was told, absolutely, it’s back. Checking in, was told it had been cancelled; couldn’t find a bartender. Really? No offers of any other options. Breakfast. Inedible. Congealed… Read more
Have always had excellent experiences at ES, but this was bad. Asked specifically about the cocktail when I booked (had to call; online booking wasn’t working), and was told, absolutely, it’s back. Checking in, was told it had been cancelled; couldn’t find a bartender. Really? No offers of any other options. Breakfast. Inedible. Congealed scrambled eggs, cold potatoes, absolutely horrible sausages. I THINK they were sausages. Valets we’re nowhere to be found. I’m still a fan, but this property, meh, not so much. Read less

It was extremely disappointing to have only one server in the restaurant/bar during dinner hours. Never followed through with my request to have my room cleaned, trash remove, and replace towels and wash cloths. Needs more staff for the dinner/bar service. Needs to follow through with requests made regarding cleaning the room.

The location, cleanliness of the room and hotel were great. I was disappointed that the full breakfast was still not being served, the parking was too expensive, and the front desk could not give me change for a $20, so that I could tip the valet attendant. In addition, it took a while for the front desk clerk to find my reservation which was a… Read more

Good Room, great breakfast. My complaint was that there was No Apirin, Advil, or Excedrine, or Tylenol in Hotel at 5AM when my wife had a migraine. All sorts of things in the gift shop; but lacked that. Walked .3 miles to a gas station to get it. Luckily there was a Starbucks nearby and I grabbed some good coffee on the trip. Called for towels and… Read more

All sorts of things in the gift shop; but lacked that. Walked .3 miles to a gas station to get it. Luckily there was a Starbucks nearby and I grabbed some good coffee on the trip. Called for towels and after 2 hours of no delivery I finally decided to get them. Room and spaciousness of atrium-like setting was great and brought my overall rating to a 4. Read less

Upon check in, valet staff and front desk staff were very helpful. However, since they are now charging post covid rates, the amenities advertised should be there as well.

Upon check in, valet staff and front desk staff were very helpful. However, since they are now charging post covid rates, the amenities advertised should be there as well. There was no evening reception and no breakfast available to go. I book Embassy because of their hot breakfast. Lol! We left early morning and they didn’t have bagged breakfasts. I felt like I paid for those amenities but didn’t get it. Other than that, place was clean and room was clean. I’d definitely stay here again, but please have bagged breakfasts available to go for early risers like us. Read less
