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.

Suite was okay, just wish it had a fully stocked kitchen (with cutlery and servingware) and a full sized fridge. Room was a little small, but they were ok, clean with very comfortable beds. The staff were wonderful and very courteous. Happy Hour daily from 5:30-7:30 was a treat! The chef made to order breakfast was fantastic. Location was great,… Read more

The staff were wonderful and very courteous. Happy Hour daily from 5:30-7:30 was a treat! The chef made to order breakfast was fantastic. Location was great, near stores and restaurants and five minutes walking distance to the Pleasant Hill BART Station across the road. Quiet rooms and spa/pool/gym available too. Only gripe is the $30 parking fee at the hotel. Read less

What a disappointment. We stayed at Embassy Suites after being evacuated from the danger zone of the wild fires. Where other companies were hitting it out of the park with warmth, caring and generosity, Embassy Suites lost our reservation, refused to give us our complimentary drink at the evening reception because we missed the cutoff time by 5 minutes, and wanted to charge us for our last night, even though we were allowed to return to our homes because our evacuation was lifted. What a miss for them. The only shining light were the chefs at the breakfast. Their omelettes and pancakes were exceptional, and their hospitality was kind and caring. A bright light every morning in an otherwise uncaring, cold service environment. Read less

Wonderful hotel with a very accommodating staff. Made to order breakfast was an added plus! Each room has a living room area with sink area that includes microwave and refrigerator. Definitely will come back!

Our room wasn’t fancy but loved the layout and the bed for once wasn’t too soft. Just right. Pillows could have been better but I would stay again for sure! Complimentary breakfast was excellent, the line for omelettes was long but worth it.

Internet is horrible and I was told they know it is and are working on fixing the problem. It should be fixed by the end of the year. That doesn’t do me any good when I’m there in October. When I expressed concerns to management she blew me off and provided me with a code for premium access on my next stay. **I won’t ever stay there in the future.
