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.

Too much noise, Bed was uncomfortable slept on couch instead couldnt relax after exhausting meeting and Valet took to long to go or come from anywhere. Hilton No Thank you. I'll probably get better service a Motel 6.

Great location, good service. The staff here are friendly and helpful. The Embassy continues to provide a quality of service I expect from a Embassy Suites/Hilton hotel. Parking a bit expensive. Otherwise will continue to stay here when I am in the area.

My family and I stayed here with a team for a tournament we were participating in. It was a very lovely comfortable and enjoyable experience, fun for the adults and the kids as well. The breakfast served each morning was delicious

I'm really embarrassed of the amount of money spent expecting a 5 star experience when I could've had a better experience at Motel 6 for $60.00 vs $600.00 a night. I wish the Embassy suites in Walnut Creek spokesperson would investigate my claims and make it right.

They do not honor what you book. Rooms smell awful only two towel changes provided a week. They did not attempt to make things right. The stay was a RIP off. The remotes in the room did not work, pay for a 2 room king suite you get a double room!.
