The renovation involves a transformation of the lobby space and adjacent public areas including the Bishop Grill restaurant into a "Greatroom" which replicates the "California Vineyards" theme of the newly renovated meeting space. Key elements of the newer ambiance include a palette of earth tones, use of wandering vines, rich earthy textures, and dark woods.
The new design is said to have completely transformed the San Ramon Marriott's lobby, which now features pod-like front desk stations, new contemporary styled lighting, more private seating areas, and rich vibrant artwork.
Additionally, the hotel's Bishop Grill restaurant and lounge space have been converted to a Greatroom featuring a day/night bar, cocktail cubbies, communal tables, comfortable seating areas, and state-of-the-art technology including six flat panel TVs over the new bar area. A portion of the existing restaurant space has also been converted to flexible multi-use space to accommodate group meals and social functions with direct access to outdoor patios.
Situated in a park-like setting in Bishop Ranch, the San Ramon Marriott features 368 guest rooms appointed with the technologies. The hotel, which has earned the prestigious ENERGY STAR label from the US EPA, offers an outdoor pool, fitness center, sauna, and 16 meeting rooms with over 16,500 square feet of meeting and conference space. Located in East Bay, between San Francisco and Silicon Valley, the San Ramon Marriott provides guests with entertainment and dining options in Pleasanton, Walnut Creek, Danville, and Alamo, California. Nearby activities include golf, hiking, tennis and wine tasting in Livermore Valley Wine Country just 20 minutes away.
