This is the best hotel I've stayed in... Maybe ever. Just wonderful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"European décor and ambience"
Don't pass up an opportunity to stay here. You will not be disappointed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I visit the Pleasanton/Livermore area every month for business and have stayed at just about every hotel and motel in that area over the past 8 years. I've avoided The Rose because of the price, but a good deal from Expedia was too good to pass up. Yes, the hotel is more expensive than the other local choices, but it's worth every penny. I arranged […] a good price for all my trips for the rest of the year. Great value for money! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Slept Like A Log!"
This hotel is beautiful! The bed is so comfortable I fell immediately asleep. The room is just so relaxing and comfortable. Staff is the best I have come across in 30 years of traveling. I will be back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Romantic Getaway"
A great find in Pleasanton. Felt like we were away at a resort rather than downtown amid all the shops and restaurants. Room was large with spa-like feel to the bath area. Very comfortable bed, free wifi, bottled water and fresh ground Peets Coffee with a French Press coffeemaker. We would love to have stayed another night, oh well, next time. Lobby […] was very inviting with reading areas and lobby bar. Continental breakfast was included but we had already made plans to meet friends at a nearby bistro for brunch. A real gem.

"Outstanding hotel - the way it should be everytime"
I'm a frequent business traveler(over 100k flight miles annually) and a frequent traveler to Pleasanton. Most of the time I stay in one of the larger chains due to points accumulation and frankly, not caring too much except for a clean room and a shower that works without having the tub fill up with 4 inches of water while showering. In this instance, […] all of the major hotels were booked and I was fortunate enough to find and stay at the Rose Hotel. What a treat! The staff were so friendly and accomodating. There is candy, water, and fruit all over for the guests - without charge. The rooms were very nice, spacious and the bathrooms were outstanding with a shower, separate tub, and all in very nice quality marble and wood. Turn down service, free continental breakfast (with eggs, salmon, breads, muffins, juices, coffees, etc.) and free wi-fi in a very quaint, and well appointed hotel makes this one my best hotel experiences of the year. I knew it was going to be good when I ordered my second glass of wine at the bar in the lobby and with that second glass came a new, clean glass. Nice touch Rose! I will find ways to stay here again and enjoy the comfort and warmth of the Rose! I am looking forward to coming back for a pleasure trip and will definitely stay at the Rose.

"What a jewel!"
What sets outstanding service apart from others? Attention to detail. This hotel has it from the beautiful fresh rosé in your immaculately elegant clean room all the way to the bathrobe and slippers! Turn of the century styling elegance, wonderful staff make sure you have the best stay possible. I travel a lot and this is the best hotel I have ever […] come across. Breakfast is wonderful and the fresh fruit and snacks on every floor are nice. Oh and the cookies are nice after a hard day. Rooms are large and elegant. My only complaint is that I can not live in this hotel but I am open for adoption! What a wonderful experience! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay was delightful, we were pleasantly surprised. They room was classy, comfortable, clean and spacious. The hotel staff were exceptionally welcoming and friendly. The continental breakfast was excellent. My hubby enjoyed the complimentary shoe shine. Who knew we had such a gem so close to home! We will be sure to be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Awsome !!!!! It's so cozy and wonderful staff!!!! 5 stars in my book....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Boutique Hotel"
The hotel was immaculate, clean, and the staff friendly. Loves the spaciousness and the extra touches (ie, candles in the bathroom, robes, shoes, and turn down service). The only complaint was the noise from the street below (we had the window open). Will definitely stay again, but on the interior side!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great relaxing hotel!"
I have been to this hotel twice and its great! Hotel staff is very warm and welcoming. The rooms are amazing and love the standing spacious showers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
First off, I never write reviews unless its really bad or really good. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Rose..... Especially if you're going to enjoy the nightlife downtown pleasanton has to offer. This Hotel seems a little pricier than the other but in the end you save. Their continental breakfast includes lox, smoked salmon, cold cuts, fresh delicious […] sweet fruit and berries, and all of the rest but its quality. And the Hotel is right in Downtown Pleasanton on Main street so theres no need for a cab. They include 4 water bottles in your room for free and a french press with Peet's coffee grinds in each room. The rooms are spacious and every room has a big bathtub with jacuzzi jets with a separate shower. It has everything you need. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This is what every hotel should be - LOVED IT!"
I stay in a lot of different hotels for work, and this was by far my absolute favorite all around place to stay. Here is what I love about this place: 1) Really good, free breakfast - locs; fruit, fresh meat, and all the staples. 2) Amazing appointed rooms with lots of attention to detail... and turn down service 3) The neighborhood is like walking […] back in time and feels very safe and homey 3) Parking is about 2 steps from the elevator and even the garage is cozy feeling, with trees in planters, art , etc. . Overall, the place feels like you are a guest in someones upscale plantation house and feels very warm with a very gracious and genuine staff. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Honeymoon Go-to hotel"
I don't believe the hotel can be beaten for it's price, in terms of what we were checking out on Expedia. We were on our honeymoon in the San Francisco area, but wanted to keep a decent budget and decided to stay out of the city but still very close in Pleasanton. It was a great area, garage parking, all kinds of great amenities, candies in jars, snacks […] at random tables that you can grab, and a great breakfast. The employees were "out of their way" kind of nice. Within just a block were a couple of restaurants we tried, and both of which were great. There is also a little shopping area within walking distance. Overall 5 star across the board, and we'll be staying here again for an anniversary in some years. p.s. They are The Rose Hotel for a reason. They like their roses. It was very fitting for us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful and Quiet"
A beautiful, comfortable, and quiet hotel on main street within easy walking distance of several restaurants and shops. The staff was very helpful and friendly, rooms and bathrooms large and very comfortable. Breakfast was typical continental common today, but good and plentiful. A very good base for visits to the many fine wineries nearby. We'll definitely […] return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel does everything right. Room is comfortable, bathroom is roomy, service is incredible, and no amenity is overlooked. A great place to stay in the heart of downtown Pleasanton and well worth the cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great for a couples get away!"
Lovely! Classic elegance is how I would describe the hotel. Felt very pampered! The room was inviting and quiet! On the 3rd floor over looking Main Street! Would have liked to stay more than the one night. Thank you Expedia for listing them on your site!Genuine Expedia guest review
Everything was great. Only thing I would prefer is a room HVAC system that had adjustable fan mode. Hallway and outside were a bit noisy and a fan could have drowned out those noises. Otherwise, gorgeous hotel and town.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for business or pleasure!"
Overall the hotel was super. There were some parties going on in two restaurants facing the parking lot and it was very noisy until late in the evening. Everything else was perfect and I can't wait to stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I've had the opportunity to stay at the Rose Hotel on three occasions and I love it. The staff is extremely friendly, courteous, and attentive to detail. The rooms are beautiful. This is my favorite place to stay in the East Bay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful boutique hotel in downtown Pleasanton"
One of the nicest boutique hotels and staff in the bay area. Take your eyemask though, the black out curtains aren't effective and light streams in at 7 am! Other than that, flawless and highly recommended.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stepping back in time to an era of elegant hotels."
This is such a beautiful hotel, it was as if we stepped back in time to the era of elegant hotels. We were amazed at the attention to detail and the wonderful character of the hotel. Our room was a delight, so many thoughtful touches and so luxurious. We have stayed in many hotels and this by far was the nicest. The customer service provided by the […] staff is wonderful. Our only disappointment was that we only stayed one night. Next time we'll stay longer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"So close to perfect!"
This came so close to being perfect! If they hadn't used (what is to me) stinky laundry products, it would have been the perfect stay in a wonderful hotel. I don't use laundry products with fragrance because they are, well, stinky and unappealing, as well as unhealthy. I found the smell too strong, and the first night, I couldn't sleep until I wrapped […] the pillowcase in a towel. After that, I slept well and enjoyed my stay. Super comfortable, low key, nice place without the pretentiousness of so many 'nice' places. For me, almost, almost perfect. So close. And if they would just ditch the nasty fragrance for unscented, HEALTHY, products, this would be the perfect place for me. Mind you, I am particularly sensitive to strong fragrances. You might not notice it. But that doesn't change the fact that the fragrance is not good for anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

With our travels around the world this one is right up there you have to stay in this hotel if you are near Pleasanton . The rooms are beautiful would of loved to stay longer but would stay again for sure and the breakfast was very good . The hotel is right in the town so you can walk around the shops and have a very good meal with good food places in Pleasanton .

We have stayed here several times when visiting relatives in the area. This hotel has thought of every detail and has done a great job on each and every one of them. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Beds and linens are high quality. Very nice breakfast, along with fresh fruit and goodies available throughout the day. Great bar for an evening cocktail. Pleasanton is a lovely town with a nice selection of restaurants and The Rose Hotel is the perfect place to stay while in the area.
"The Hotel is a Wonderful!"
08/24/14 sfheather San Francisco, California,USA
We came to Pleasanton to go to a car show, little did we think we would find such a great hotel. I just came back from Carmel's Cypress Inn, (it has always been one of my favorite) the Rose "out did" our expectations. From checking in, to our beautiful room, to our fresh and plentiful breakfast. We will definitely be coming back. Thank you John Madden (owner), for providing such a wonderful place to stay.

Old world class with modern amenities. Wife and I loved this place. Had a hob for tea and all the stuff to go with it. Bathroom was to die for, larger than some rooms we stayed in. Had fresh fruit and breakfast bars available at all times, breakfast was great, wonderful selection. Covered parking next to elevator. Really cannot find anything to complain about, which for me and my wife if a red letter day. We stayed a couple of days in July and are now going back. Great location, Short drive to the Livermore wine country downtown Pleasanton has many great places to shop and eat.

We stayed in these hotel for a night to attend the Vigonians affair. We were so impressed with the rooms and the amenities especially the cookies, coffe and tea, and chocolates all over the lobby. Breakfast was also wonderful. Even my husband who was very skeptical of the reviews he read was impressed. We will definitely stay longer next time around.

Lovely hotel caked in marble and luxurious décor. I stayed for 2 nightspot business. Pro's - Large rooms - Superb bathrooms - Continental breakfast included - Good parking - well located in town Con's -Bar and food options could be a bit better Would definitely stay again.
08/01/14 StacyMl14 Laguna Beach, California
What a cool little town. We really enjoyed staying here, we were a little bit skeptical about the prices but the reviews on the web were very positive so we decided to give it a shot. The atmosphere is great and the staff is extremely friendly. Downtown Pleasanton is a really cool little town, filled with shops and some nice restaurants. I wish we could of stayed there a few more nights so I could try some of the other places out, but overall we had a great time on our trip. We went wine tasting in Livermore and spent our nights usually walking downtown. If you are ever in Northern California this place is certainly worth checking out.
"Elegance at it’s Finest"
07/04/14 mrsg9064 Poway, California
Stepping into The Rose is like stepping back in time. From their beautiful antiques, to their fine wood staircase and antique rugs, no attention detail has been spared. It’s warm and welcoming. The staff is kind, cheerful and helpful. The rooms are large, comfortable and first class. The hotel is right downtown with plenty of free parking, and walking-close to many restaurants. We’ve traveled all over the world and stayed at many beautiful hotels, but this one is at the top of the list for it’s welcoming warmth and elegance.
"A dying mom's fondest memory"
06/18/14 Kim S Woodacre, California, United States
As I drove my now frail mom back from her doctor appointment, in a small quiet voice she says "The Rose." And I said "yes, what?" She said you know, the place we stayed, and then she smiled. I then remembered the year before, making the decision to use a ridiculous amount of airline miles, to get adjoining rooms, and bring my mom along on my trip. I was riding in the Cinderella Classic. I remember thinking 'this place better be good.' When mom got to her room she said, "wow, this is great," and it was. Owned by the famous Steve Madden of football, and his sons, no attention to detail was left behind. The decor, the linens, the hand made rugs, it was all top notch. So with the very short amount of time my mom has left on this earth, I know in her final hour, she will be in her room at The Rose Hotel. It was worth every airline mile I will ever get. I love you so much mom, and I am going to miss you.
"Beautiful place with excellent service"
06/03/14 ChicoStateMom Pleasanton
I have a small business in downtown Pleasanton and we share clients with the Rose Hotel. I have never actually STAYED in a room here but have been in the rooms several times and have been given excellent specials for VIP clients, newlyweds and dear friends. The management at the Rose is accommodating and the service is top notch. The staff behind the desk once told me that "if it is legal and a client wants it, we'll find a way to get it"! That's pretty great service. Downtown Pleasanton is a charming destination and the Rose Hotel is by far the nicest hotel in town.
