California's 368-room San Ramon Marriott Completes $2.5 Million
Renovation to Create More Comfortable Public Areas

San Ramon, C.A. (February 20, 2013)
— The San Ramon Marriott has completed a $2.5 million renovation, it was announced today by Tom David, General Manager.

According to Mr. David, 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 subtle, yet sophisticated ambiance include a palette of warm and inviting earth tones, use of wandering vines, rich earthy textures, and dark woods.

"The Greatroom concept has proven tremendously successful with both our hotel guests who seek a comfortable, wired place to work or relax outside of their guest rooms, as well as for area locals who want a place to hang out, conduct interviews, meet friends, and enjoy casual fare," notes Mr. David.

The new design has 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 beautifully decorated guest rooms appointed with the latest technologies. The hotel, which has earned the prestigious ENERGY STAR label from the U.S. EPA, offers an outdoor pool, fitness center, sauna, and 16 meeting rooms with over 16,500 sq ft of meeting and conference space.  Located in East Bay, between San Francisco and Silicon Valley, the San Ramon Marriott provides guests with numerous 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. For additional information, visit or call 925-867-9200.
