... time we drive back to Napa.
We found their apartment easily, thank goodness for the GPS. I still don’t know how we got places without them. They are dog sitting a rescued greyhound, Eddie, who’s about 3 years old. He’s a beautiful brindle, so sweet, but very shy. Matt is a bicyclist, both road and mountain biking, so he’s got an assortment of bikes. There are two hanging in their guest ...
... of the Cathedral of light after attending afternoon Mass. I didn't know that you only had to pay $5.00 for parking if you went on the tour. Otherwise parking was $15.00. But the tour was magnificent because you could see the depth of the architectural themes followed through in the Cathedral. It was a trip to visit the grave of Bishop Begin since he had confirmed me. I had a thoroughly wonderful time connecting the old with the new.
... bread is a favourite in our house and it was fun learning and watching how it was made. The samples were pretty good too!
On the way home that night we drove by the "Painted Ladies" Victorian houses, the ones you see from the opening credits of the old TV show "Full House". Then we drove through the Castro district which really has its own distinct flair! It was our ...

When I go to the Bay Area, I guess I should say the East Bay, I always drive on my personal pilgrimage to see certain places. On of them is the Hills of Lafayette. Another is the back road to Oakland from Moraga. It is called Pinehurst Road and passes through some redwoods. I had traveled that road daily when mom lived with me in ...
... shuttle to the airport. I am so sad to leave my favorite place in the world I want to cry ;( waaa. Next trip I am just coming to Vegas for a month haha. The shuttle driver thinks his joke about asking us if we are "virgin" is hilarious when we say yes. Silly old willy. Me and Chrissy have a last minute play at the airport before boarding to the golden gate city. Flight is quick which sucks as we are all watching awesome **** on tv. By the time we get a cab it's after ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance ClubSport Walnut Creek Hotel
Very Very Nice.....
I brought my mother here for a Mother's Day Weekend Get-A-Away. We had a wonderful time. The staff was overly friendly and very professional. The room decor was beautiful and the beds slept heavenly. The restaurant was GREAT and not over-priced as some 4star restaurants can be. The gym was state of the art and they allowed hotel guest to use for free even without a membership. The only item I could do without is the valet parking. I have to say it was pain. Sometimes the wait was frustrating; I would definitely prefer parking my own car.
Our family just returned from a week long stay at The Renaissance Club Sport. Immediately upon entering the hotel, we felt like we were truly relaxed and on vacation. That is not a feeling easy to come by, say in San Francsico. The customer service is excellent, facilities- off the charts (hot tub, pool, snack bar, restaurant, gym, volleyball and basketball courts...). Our kids loved Club Kid- their day care/nursery. There was so much for them to do there while my husband and I enjoyed the Spa one afternoon. We can not think of one thing we were disatisfied with at this place. We will be back.
This is a most unique and excellent hotel, a beautiful facility, the gym is outstanding - the power yoga class taught by Angie C. is the best we have ever had. With friendly and well-mannered and highly professional staff, it's excellent. The only drawback is mandatory valet parking which we do not like but every other aspect is simply terrific.
I've stayed at this hotel several times for business purposes. This hotel rocks.
Just back from a stay here. Really funky rooms with large well appointed bathrooms including barbells for exercise. There is even free water and apples awaiting you in the room. The workout facilities are excellent and all complimentary to hotel guests. Raquetball courts, basketball, work out equipment, volleyball, whirlpool, sauna, steam rooms. The outdoor area has a large lap pool, a play around pool and even a kiddie wading pool. Lots of chairs and umbrellas. I highly recommend this place. The only reason I'm not giving it a 5 is that the restaurant is not managed very well. On Sunday morning I saw a number of people standing in line for a table walk away because there was no greeter at the entrance taking names. It also took some time for tables to be bused and I saw a worker set down the doughnut plate (from the buffet line) on the floor while he wiped off the messy counter. The food served was OK, but for a $22 Sunday buffet...well...I've had better. Other than the restaurant the rest of the hotel is absolutely fabulous!!
This place is great. Good location for getting the BART into San Fransico, great weather (unlike SF), brillaint sport/health club facilities and excellent service - all at a very affordable price. Wanut Creek is lovely - good shops and restuarants. You would struggle to find a better place for making a base to do San Fransisco area.
Stayed overnight on a Friday. Room was very comfortable, especially the bed with the duvet/duvet cover and 4 pillows. Very art deco. Loved the bathroom and the sink area. Had complimentary fruit and 2 Dasani bottled water. Cotton balls and Q-tips came along with the usual shampoo/conditioner/lotion/shower cap. Was pleasantly surprised when we came back from dinner, and 2 little choc candies were waiting for us on the bed. Didn't know there was turn-down service.
Cool place! Love the pool/spa/health club and restaurant
Stayed here a few times and really liked it. Very cool place. Excellent brunch and dinner at the C Blue restaurant, LOVE the health club, spa and outdoor pool area where they have live entertainment on summer weekends. Beds are very comfy. Rooms are not large, but they are cute. They really went overboard with the modern art deco theme, it's almost overwhelming, but invigorating considering it's club sport. Great to take the family to the pool in the summer. Even available on Priceline - nice!
From information I've read on the Internet, the Renaissance Club Sport Walnut Creek is the first in a concept of combining full service health club and spa facilities with a first-class hotel, geared toward the business traveler. The next location appears to be Chandler, Az.
Excellent facilities, friendly service
We stayed here as an alternative to more expensive hotels in San Francisco. This hotel is modern, has excellent facilities including a huge health club with free classes and an outside pool. The rooms are interestingly decorated for a chain hotel. The most remarkable thing is that all the staff are so friendly and helpful.The hotel is walking distance to BART so travel to SF is easy, it is also within easy drive of Napa Valley.The only drawback is the lack of restaurants in the immediate vicinity.Overall this was great choice of hotel for a short break, particularly for fitness fanatics.
