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 environment and service at the Lafayette Park Hotel & Spa was great! Friendly, efficient staff, clean, spacious rooms and a pretty setting. The shuttle was a nice touch to make dining easy in town.
We frequent the Lafayette when we visit our daughter who attends St Mary’s. It’s always such a nice treat. Hotel is beautiful and staff very accommodating. There is a restaurant on site, which makes grabbing a bite very convenient. Great location if you plan to be in the Lafayette area and just a quick hour drive into the city. Always a great stay!
I have enjoyed staying here over the years--sometimes even for extended stays. It's just, well, tired. Hasn't been updated in some it--at least from appearance. Staff is still a highlight. Remarkable enthusiasm and an obvious effort to delight. The restaurant holds it's own, particularly for breakfast.
We have stayed here several times, this my one of the best places to stay, you still have the personal attention you need when you arrive and through out your stay, all staff is courteous and welcoming, I would recommend to everyone!!!
Very clean and spacious room. We were in town for a wedding (with the reception in the hotel), and this was a wonderful way to unwind both before and after the wedding. The room was large, and convenient underground parking (although a bit tight spaces)
