I booked this hotel as I planned to run the Walnut Creek Half Marathon on Saturday December 14, 2013. While doing my usual training run, I strained my calf....just two days before. I didn't want to re-injure my calf further by running the Half Marathon race, and called Central Reservations to see if I could cancel my Pre-Paid Reservation. Central...

Have been a long time Marriott customer, stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in WC for the first time on business and would seriously consider switching. Great hotel, service was impeccable...the manager Luis was very accommodating.

We went to an office party in Walnut Creek and found this hotel online. The check-in process was quick. Hubby was able to find parking in front so we didn't use the garage. Used taxis to/from the party so didn't lose spot. Room was nice. Loved the king-sized bed although it was a bit high. Water pressure in shower was...

The hotel is a bit of distance from some of the more interesting aspects of Walnut Creek, but walking distance to the Bart station. The shuttle driver was awesome. There is no shuttle on the weekends and it ends early on the weekdays. Across the street from the hotel there is a trail that will take you all the way...

I had been traveling throughout Central and Northern California for more than a week, staying with friends in private homes along the way, so I welcomed the break to stay in my own private room for my only one night stay in the San Francisco Bay Area.
