The charms of the East Bay are many: warm sunshine, world-class dining, wine country weekends. And while Lafayette Park Hotel & Spa offers easy access to all these, it takes its design inspiration from much farther east. The distinct mixture of French chateau architecture with an early American vibe recalls Washington’s Mount Vernon or other classic sprawling East Coast estates. Welcoming, but with elegance to spare, the evocation of country charm is carried through from the sweeping lobby to the Duck Club restaurant to the rooms themselves.
Bed & Bath
Rooms start at a spacious 450 square feet and sprawl up to 850 square foot suites. All have serene views of the gardens or rolling hills. Custom cherry armoires and writing desks feel stately. More modern amenities include HDTVs, free WiFi and music systems. Granite bathrooms have spa robes, makeup mirrors and Gilchrist and Soames bath products.
There’s a heated pool, spa and sauna. Or you can fully bliss out at the spa, which offers treatments inspired by the hotel’s gardens. Dining is a highlight with haute California fare at the classic Duck Club restaurant and local-favorite The Bistro at the Park.
How to Get There
The hotel staff were extremely service oriented and professional and the property is lovely and charming and elegant. The beds and pillow choices were excellent and the room furnishings made for a very comfortable stay. The food and service of the staff for our business meeting were outstanding.
Great room until the ceiling tiles fell in and when i went to see what the noise was in the dark i slipped on the wet tile and dislocated my shoulder. The hotel offered me a free night but for the pain i went through i dont think thats sufficient...
Found this gem while looking for a last minute 4th of July vacation. Loved all of the nearby restaurants and shopping. Didn't realize it was literally one exit and short Uber ride to Walnut Creek. Our room was spacious with comfy beds and a refrigerator. Will definitely stay again if visiting the area!
This is a nice small hotel. Our room was large and well appointed. We looked out on a courtyard where a small wedding was conducted one afternoon. Classy hotel. The service was excellent and the restaurant was very nice.
We have stayed here many times and every time has been wonderful. The pool is terrific and a beautiful environment to enjoy. Flowers and trees to delight. The rooms are spacious and clean. Located close to the areas points of interest and beauty. Excellent food and service in the restaurant. Full menu for every hour of the day and poolside service as well. Easy access from the freeway and local shopping needs.
