... up one hill that I was determined to complete "in the saddle" until Jerry shouted for help because -- catch this -- his shoelace got caught in his gears. This would have been pretty funny if the grade hadn't been probably 45% so once I stopped to see him become untangled I had lost all momentum and had to walk the bike up the rest of the way. Thank God.

... and we landed. The flight had some pretty bad patches of turbulence which upset Ben's tummy again but we landed with no issues.
Once we got off the flight the queue at immigration was mental. It went all around the immigration hall thing weaving through those paths they make AND it extended all the way down the terminals. I couldn't believe it and was so irritated because I knew we were being picked up. It took us over 2 HOURS to get through immigration. Luckily customs ...
... Some of it was tacky souvenir shops and some was more tasteful. We walked around the area until we were tired before getting a tram back. Public transport is very easy to use here but ridiculously crowded.
Back in the hotel, staying in American mode, we put Glee on TV - it is so up to date that we don't recognise half of the characters. Then Oliver won the remote control so we obviously ended up with American sport. The America's Cup ...

Danica and Matt have a nice apartment and we visited for awhile then headed for downtown Walnut Creek to the Creamery. Ice Cream is served ONLY in large quantities and the sandwiches and burgers are Steinle size. Do I need to tell you that lunch was GREAT????
... person but the bike ride was amazing, seeing all the sites throughout the city and across the bay was awesome! :) lots of fun and a good workout after Vegas ;) only one thing was that we had to ride back through the streets of San Fran and miss the cars as we went, although they have bike lanes throughout, it was still a little scary :/ Getting back to the hotel we then went to china town! :) yumm, got to eat some non fatty foods, although it taste really ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Hotel Pleasant Hill-Walnut Creek
Worst Embassy Suites!
This was by far one of the worst hotel xperiences I have ever had for the money. FIrst of all, there is a charge of $15/night for parking that they do not tell you about upfront. The parking area is a cramped and once full, underground garage with narrow spaces. Secondly, the room was a disaster. Towel rack, closet rod, microwave knob, and toilet were all broken. THey could not change our room because they were booked up. Also, we heard every little noise outside of our room, including the yelling and screaming kids running through the halls. The small pool area was always packed with kids going crazy with little supervision as was the managers reception and complementary breakfast. We usually love the Embassy Suites but will never stay at this one again.
Stayed here and when I opened the armoire, I found a used hypodermic needle on the shelf. The manager, David, did not seem to care and was in fact rude about it. Will never stay here again. ever.
I'm turning 51 and my college age kids want to take me to San Francisco. They book me into the Embassy Suites (Walnut Creek/Pleasant Hill). We arrive at 7:15 am and are looking to just leave our bags and park the car until check in. The desk clerk not only tells us they have a room ready but we can do an early check-in have breakfast and park, giving us a entire day free of worrys. Juat a day relaxing with my wife, son and daughter. We arrive back at the hotel around 6:15 pm via the Bay Area Rapid Transit (Otherwise known as the BART which is located directly across the street) and have free cocktails until 07:30 pm. After a good night's sleep, a great breakfast, we check out and have another great day before driving home. Thank you Embassy Suites, you made my birthday one of the best memories I'll cherish...
It is an interesting setup: rooms on floors 2-8 in squares around an atrium. The atrium roof is translucent and provides most of the light---it is oddly dark in the evening. I agree about the small parking spaces. We made reservations through hotwire ($58 + tax) and were disappointed to subsequently learn about the $15 daily parking charge, but the value was still good. The free breakfast is eggs, bacon, sausage, hashbrowns, french toast, pancakes, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal, dry cereal, pastries, and various drinks. Getting that for two adults and two kids is worth a good deal. The breakfast is available for 3 hours each morning. I'm surprised to read that someone was unable to obtain room service, as I saw evidence that it was available; I don't know however whether it is available around the clock. They also offer free evening cocktails/wine and snacks. Internet access (wireless or otherwise) is $10/day. Local calls are $1 each---use a prepaid code or something like that. USA today was free each weekday morning.
I arranged to have my wedding reception at the Embassy Suites in Walnut Creek about one year in advance. Not to discredit other reviews, but having dealt with this hotel for approximately a year, I can honestly say that I have nothing to complain about. I arranged for a block for a discounted rate and had approximately 20 rooms booked with guests from my wedding. They loved the hotel! Several guests had children were elated with the buffet breakfast and secure environment. Patrick, the Bellman, helped me unload all of my wedding gear (which was a lot) when we checked in. Days later, he volunteered to help me transport all of my reception preparations down to the ballroom. The front desk rocks! Larry and Mohammed in Banquet services rock! Julie in catering rocks! While I stayed there was a $15 parking fee, not $30 as mentioned in a previous review. I had a mini-van and I was able to find adequate parking. My room was clean and spacious. The location is convenient and Walnut Creek is a nice city to stay in. My reception was great and we received many compliments on the food! I give the Embassy Suites two thumbs up!!
I should have written this much sooner. My room was fine, and the hotel breakfast was great. However, the first thing that greets you is the PARKING FEE of $30.00/night. Staggering I thought. Would not have booked a room there if I had been told that up front. Also, the service and food at the restaurant inside the hotel(not associated with the breakfast team) was as poor as I have ever seen. I spoke with the Hotel Manager in he morning after our experience at restaurant. There isn't anywhere else to park near the hotel, but certainly you can dine elsewhere.
Summerfield Suites on the other hand is simply wonderful in every way.
This hotel is VERY nice, good decor and color selections. The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly to work with. They have a good breakfast selection available in the morning. During our stay we had a problem with a window in our room, but they very quickly had us transfer to another room. One word of caution, the rooms that are near the BART system can be a bit noisy, but it's not bad, and the location in Walnut Creek near the highway is very helpful as well.
Very poor parking
The hotel was okay. Room just satisfactory. The real irritation is the poor parking. It's a parking garage under the hotel and the spaces are really tiny. Not very fun with all of the SUVs around. Much too tight. And you pay extra for it. I wouldn't stay there again.
I reserved three rooms for 2 nights for my extended family at this Embassy Suites. We were in town to celebrate my son's graduation from Berkeley. I made the reservation weeks in advance, and I chose Walnut Creek because the hotels in Berkeley had booked up months in advance.
Great Place to Stay
I stayed at this hotel and it was great! Sevice was good and the free breakfast hit the spot. I would recommended, especially for business travelers. It is located next door to the Bart station, which allows you easy excess into San Francisco. I used Trip Advisor on a regular basis to see what others thought of various hotels, so I thought I would do the same. Enjoy your stay!
