This was my second visit and I was just as happy to be there as I was the first time. That's why I came back and probably will again.

When I arrived to my room I found somebody's sock that was left in the room. My Wife & I ordered food from the hotel & when it was delivered it was the wrong food. When we go the order corrected the Fry's were cold & to hard to eat. My Wife enjoyed the spa.

it was a lovely opportunity for celebrating my husband's birthday and our babymoon. My only complaint is that the pillows were too fluffly and didn't offer enough support! otherwise, the whole experience really felt like we were further away from home than just a few blocks!

Best weekend getaway!

The hotel is one of the most beautiful and comfortable that we have stayed in. The views couldn’t be beat and all the amenities makes it hard to leave property.

Beautiful property, attentive staff

We had a lovely stay! Drinks on the parking lot patio, dinner at Limewood, comfortable room. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Club and pool -- although we had some unpleasant interactions with rude Club members. We also really appreciate the extra time for late check-out. Cannot wait to come back!

Front Desk was friendly, but the place was empty. No food service, will not be staying here again until back to normal

We stayed here again after an excellent stay two years ago. Current lack of food service and service is unacceptable for a $400 a night hotel. I booked through the website at the hotel for a "priority upgrade" and still unable to upgrade our room even though the hotel was empty. Unnescissary.

Decent Stay - Poor checkin experience

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Sean T. Solo - 11/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Without a valet, I would have expected someone at the door to help me with my bags, and at no point was help offered. I checked in and then picked up 2 bags and walked to the elevator. I didn't ask for help, but at no point was help offered and I'd equate the checkin experience to a motel. Most of the staff that I encountered with seemed more interested in their own conversations as opposed to assisting guests. For comparable rates, I've experienced a staff that was constantly leaning in, as opposed to only being available when you engage them. Once engaged, people were great, but it was a reactive style I wouldn't expect for the price point. I'm unlikely to stay at this property again.

Dear Mr. T., Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your recent visit. Your candid feedback is very much appreciated and we are truly sorry your experience was so disappointing. Our goal is to take this insight to heart and implement the necessary changes in order to improve the experience of our valued guests. We are following up internally in the areas we fell short and will ensure the necessary lessons are learned. We would greatly appreciate the opportunity to make this up to you in the future. it will be my sincere pleasure to serve as your personal contact if we do have the honor of welcoming you back. Warm Regards, Peter Houston Director of Rooms

It was beyond pleasant! The room, bed, bathroom, amenities, and everything else was perfection. The concierge went above and beyond in helping The only thing that could have made it better was having East Bay Provisions open and better stocked with options for easier and alternative dining. Particularly because Limewood was not an option for morning breakfast, expanding or even having additional grab and go options would have been great. (Check out Rush Creek in Yosemite for a really well done hotel store/gift shop/coffee & provisions option.)

I wanted to recognize and thank Ashley who worked in the middle of the night behind the front desk on 12/27/21. We arrived at your wonderful hotel very late around midnight after a long drive to attempt to go to Lake Tahoe but drove back due to horrible traffic and unsafe driving conditions. Ashley helped prepare our room in advance on very short notice given we had two small toddlers. upon arrival, i asked her if they had milk. the room service was closed but she saved the day and without me asking brought us a pitcher of milk and had our crib ready for my baby. from one mommy to another, thank you. this is the reason I will be staying at your hotel everytime my family visits the Bay Area. Ashley helped make your hotel a family friendly one.

Great ambience, great room

I had a great stay, beautiful hotel and great rooms. Due to covid perhaps, hotel restaurant limited, local restaurant nearby was closed or only takeout. But family loved the stay and will return.

Traveller100 Couples - 06/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

We were very excited to spend New Year Eve’s and one more night at the hotel and spa. However we were disappointed. The room was nice, but we didn’t think it was worth $750 per night after taxes and fees ($500 base rate, internet and parking not included?!). There was no minibar or some sort of welcome basket, and the fridge had food in it from the previous occupants. What upset us the most was that access to the spa was limited only to those who had booked a service - please be aware that this is not mentioned anywhere on the website! Since spa access is not included, breakfast was not included - then what exactly did we pay $1500 for? A decent room in a decent location. There are so many better places in California.

Lack of Amenities

Stephen W 03/04/2021 TripAdvisor review

Arrived Sunday to find that Restaurant/Bar is normally closed Sun thru Tue nights. Bar area not open to residents, but used for a private function on Monday nt. Pool closed Mon & Tue for maintenance. What did we pay the $35/nt resort fee for!!

Dear Stephen, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and taking the time to share your candid feedback. We appreciate the insight regarding amenity availability and will ensure it is shared amongst our senior leadership team. Our goal is to continue increasing the hours of operations for our restaurant as we continue to see more and more guests return. Please note, our daily resort fee does include complimentary self parking (this would normally be a $35 nightly charge) in addition to access to our Club facilities and complimentary internet. We remain at your loyal service and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future. Warm Regards, Peter Houston Director, Rooms Division
