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.

Came here for my birthday, great location in proximity to downtown. An uber was $9. The room was super clean and staff was very friendly from check in to the bar. Evening free drinks was nice along with snacks and a free breakfast. Would stay again

I always stay at the Embassy Suites when my travel requires me to be in Walnut Creek. It is close to the BART, Starbucks and a few good local eateries. It's 30-40 mins from Oakland by ride share too! I feel very welcomed and safe here.

Parking at $30 per night is absurd. $10 would be reasonable, this is not downtown San Francisco. Pool water was comfortable but pool area itself was cooler than lobby. Exercise room a bit limited with equipment. Staff was great.

Nice reception and morning breakfast and location is right across from the office building that I have meetings at. The staff is helpful and engaging. I'd recommend this hotel to any traveler that is coming into Walnut Creek.

A very relaxing and enjoyful experience. I stay at Embassy suites in WC/Pleasant Hill because it feels like home. The convenient location to shops and malls is another plus. The staff (everyone) are very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this particular location.
