After a multi-million dollar renovation, this handsome Hilton property is looking smart and contemporary, yet dashingly Old World, outfitted in touches of Florentine splendor and the rich browns, golds and greens of the Italian Renaissance. Set off the beaten path in the tranquil community of Pleasanton, it has the style of a fine metropolitan hotel, but without all the hustle and bustle.
It’s a playful spirit that carries one away here, though the presentation is sophisticated and upscale. The elegant lobby, with its striking marble checkerboard floor, richly patterned carpets and slate tile columns with frosted glass inserts, will make you think of Siena. Banquet and meeting rooms are named after sporting events, and guests love The Bay Club, a 250,000-square-foot athletic playground that is accessible on the second floor of the hotel and complimentary to all registered hotel guests.
The hotel’s Olympic Ballroom is grand and impressive. If you use the entire space, it will hold up to 500 guests seated or 300 for dinner and dancing, but it’s also divisible into three, more intimate rooms. Accessed through a generous foyer off the windowed front hall, it’s dramatically appointed with elaborately patterned carpet and warm golden walls. The 12-foot ceiling houses recessed lighting, spots and splendid marbleized glass chandeliers, all of which can be used to spotlight or soothe, depending on the desired mood. Although the Ballroom is perfectly suited to stylish private affairs, it’s also equipped with state-of-the-art audiovisual equipment, making it an excellent choice for business conferences. The well-lit foyer, which serves as a prefunction area, is great for aperitifs, appetizers, a guest book, favor tables and other event-related activities.
The less capacious Wimbledon, Masters and Triple Crown Rooms are also attractively and practically outfitted and ideal for smaller functions: a company meeting, a retirement party, a rehearsal dinner or an intimate dinner-dance.
Outdoors, an inviting patio and gazebo, surrounded by bright lipstick-colored flowers, vibrant Japanese Maple trees suggest so many other party options. Garden chairs, heat lamps, sun umbrellas, glowing fire tables provide the opportunity to rest, reconnect with friends or just recharge for the day. On one side, steps lead down to a patio and on the other, to a stone walkway, garden and the aquamarine sparkle of the hotel swimming pool and waterfall.
Best of all: you’ll be fully supported by the professionals and amenities of a first-rate hotel, which include guestrooms so comfortable and appealing that your guests just won’t want to leave.

We haven't come for the stay during our wedding weekend yet but I can tell you I'm already more frustrated by our hotel block than by any other wedding vendor. First, there's no simple way to add more rooms, they rewrite an entire contract. Second, one benefit of the Doubletree/Hilton system is that you can login and see who has booked their rooms and for which nights. This is awesome! Except that half my guests aren't showing up on the system. I contacted the group booking person who I booked with and asked what was going on- I didn't get a clear answer but instead a condescending email about how bookings work. I know how bookings work, my fiancé and I have worked in hospitality for years. The problem is their way of doing things- if any of my guests book using their Hilton Honors number (and why wouldn't they), even when stating my wedding room block code, they don't show up. And there's no way to fix it. They can also find way better deals than my room block offers, I thought the point of a special Wedding Room Block where you bring in dozens and dozens of guests to their hotel should mean they are offered the best rate available but apparently it doesn't work that way. I'm hoping everything goes smoothly for our wedding weekend as we have friends & relatives coming in from all over the country but I have been so frustrated my expectations are low.Sent on 10/26/2016

First of all, when the wedding comes every vendors will try their way to get as much $$ from you as they can. This place was very unorganized, we had to go through so many cordinators to get we what wanted. They don't explained well to you or to your guests.Sent on 09/28/2010
For bridal suite, make sure they save the room for you. They transfered us 2 or 3 times to differents room even the people were still sleeping inside. How sad !
They said this much $ but turns out to this much $$$, make sure everything is writen out on paper.
_ I can give them 5 stars for their ball rooms
_ Food _ little dried
_ Cost _ Okay/ little more to expensive side
_ Their comunications with each other at the hotel was very poor _
Make sure to ask about every steps that you do, and the cost that they are going to charge.
On and on is an okay place, hope it help.
