Have to travel for work to Pleasanton, CA. Any suggestions on towns I should live in and hotel recommendations if any? I suspect San Francisco is too far out but wondering if there is anything nearby. Don’t mind going off the beaten path and getting a cabin in the woods if needed 😀

There’s a DoubleTree that’s connected to an amazing gym. That’s where I usually stay. I’ve also stayed at the mediocre Courtyard and the former Sheraton which is now an AC hotel.

Connected to bay club (previously city sport). Similar to equinox. It can be noisy since it’s right next to the freeway. Nothing in east bay will be fun, just expect to work, gym, eat, sleep

Are u loyal to any brands?

Not really. Open to anything. Full disclosure, no longer at KPMG and in a remote job so looking to have a fun experience (not necessarily expensive but unique like a boutique hotel , bed and breakfast etc.)

SF is pretty far. Depends what time you need to be for work. I was in Pleasanton for a workday training. It was… probably the most boring place I’ve been to in CA 😅
