Lafayette Park Hotel & Spa

3287 Mount Diablo Blvd
Lafayette, CA, United States
TEL: (877) 283-8787

The old Spanish hacienda territory to the east of San Francisco Bay has become upscale suburbia in recent decades, but Lafayette Park, a wellness-oriented getaway with retro French château architecture and southern European sensibilities, is luring travelers to the East Bay’s residential streets, all just 13 miles east of Oakland’s emerging waterfront. The hotel’s old-world vibe is most clearly felt in the central courtyard (complete with a gurgling fountain) and in the public spaces, which are all filled with overstuffed furnishings and impressive flower arrangements. But this being California, there’s also a casual edge. The pool is a great place to unwind, especially on hot summer days when the rest of the Bay Area is fogged in, and rooms are large and very comfortable, with partially canopied beds, rich cherrywood furniture, and gilded mirrors that lend a royal air (some also have fireplaces and vaulted ceilings). The property shines at its Spa at the Park, where treatments—such as the Wildflower Wrap and Apricot Body Glow—spotlight local ingredients. California flavors are also on the menu at Duck Club Restaurant; foodies order the sourdough-crusted halibut with Dungeness crab–stuffed piquillo peppers or cedar-planked Muscovy duck breast served with butternut squash.

Room to Book:

Premium "run of the house" rooms on the top (fourth) floor feature high vaulted ceilings and courtyard views.

Insider Tip:

Spa at the Park offers a signature couples' candlelit massage, and if you book on a Friday between 3 and 5 p.m., you can also partake in the spa's weekly champagne happy hour.
