Hilton Concord

Oakland, California Coast

The hotel

Set against views of Mount Diablo, Hilton Concord’s thought of everything you need for a stay in East Bay. First there’s the location: it’s right between Waterworld California and the Willows and Sun Valley shopping centres, each a stroll away; and its complimentary shuttle runs to the Concord BART station for easier trips into San Francisco. Then there are the hotel’s own attractions, from the fitness centre, outdoor pool and whirlpool, to its various watering holes, ideal whether you just want to grab a Starbucks coffee on your way out, or linger over a glass of Napa or Sonoma wine on your way back in. And finally it adds the pleasingly named ‘Plate & Vine’, serving locally sourced north Californian favourites against an on-trend backdrop of brick walls and rustic detailing.

I chose this hotel for its proximity to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. It was disappointing to say the least. First, there is a $19 self-parking charge ($24 for valet) on top of the room fee. Next, the room only has basic television, no options for in-room movies. This is disappointing for families with children. The hotel adds an extra refundable… Read more
I chose this hotel for its proximity to Six Flags Hurricane Harbor. It was disappointing to say the least. First, there is a $19 self-parking charge ($24 for valet) on top of the room fee. Next, the room only has basic television, no options for in-room movies. This is disappointing for families with children. The hotel adds an extra refundable $50 to your credit card for incidentals upon arrival, which is confusing and doesn't make sense since they have your credit card. I did not see an option for Queen beds, only King and Doubles. Finally, there is no complimentary continental breakfast in the hotel. Breakfast starts at $19.00. Read less

For all 3 couples in all 3 rooms, everything was immaculate. The upper floors have a nice view of Mt. Diablo and the surrounding city. Every detail was taken care of and it was as high of quality as hotels at much higher rates.

There used to be an executive lounge which was a very nice amenity especially for people on business travel. It provides a place to work in a quiet and private environment other than your room. The continental breakfast for Diamond members is also very poor in quality and selection. The air conditioner in the room is also very loud when it turns… Read more

This hotel has a great location with access to so much: Shopping, food, a movie theater, the BART, the freeway and it's all pretty much within no more than 1.5 miles. You have the Willows, the Veranda and Park n' Shop. It's in a really beautiful area as well, so it's peaceful and not congested which is very nice. The hotel itself is also great:… Read more

The family and I had issues with our camper so we ended up booking the Hilton last minute. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Our boys loved the pool and hot tub, and I loved the comfortable shaded couches. Will definitely be back.
