Located in the Tri-Valley area of Northern California, AC Hotels by Marriott opened its doors to the newly imagined AC Hotel Pleasanton this past November. Conveniently situated, AC Hotel Pleasanton is in short proximity from premium shopping outlets, restaurants, nightlife and entertainment.

Formerly known as the Sheraton Pleasanton Hotel, the establishment has recently undergone a $20 million renovation, transforming the property entirely to fit the AC Hotel brand. Now available, are 171 guestrooms, lobby and lounge, 24-hour health and fitness studio, outdoor pavilion and a more than 4,500 square-foot pool deck.

“AC Hotel Pleasanton is built with a purposeful-design and spirit, and with our team’s commitment to providing thoughtfully-crafted moments and frictionless service to better elevate the guest experience so that they can then focus on what’s most important to them. From our prime location to our intuitive service and collaborative co-working and social spaces, we understand what travelers need when they come stay with us during a business trip. Embracing AC Hotels’ philosophy, we ensure that each guest has everything they need and nothing they don’t,” says Demetrius Hodge, general manager of AC Hotel Pleasanton.

With today’s business travelers in mind, AC Hotel Pleasanton offers two formal meeting spaces, the AC Meeting Room which can hold up to roughly 70 people and the Library with a smaller capacity of 14. Both meetings spaces have A/V capabilities, LCD projector, microphone, TV, portable PA system and catering options. In the mornings, guests can enjoy a European continental breakfast served from the signature AC kitchen in an open concept dining space, and socialize in the AC Lounge with a variety of wine, beer and artisanal cocktails.

“A long-awaited moment, we are delighted to welcome guests to AC Hotel Pleasanton, especially during a time when Tri-Valley continues to experience growth as a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem brings in more technology companies, venture capital firms, medical and science labs, etc. Our newly renovated property combines a timeless and thoughtful design that is true to the AC Hotel brand heritage with the beauty of Northern California’s burgeoning Tri-Valley, which offers a unique sense of place that allows both leisure and entrepreneurial-minded travelers the opportunity to slow down and uncover the beauty in the essential,” Hodge says.

Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.   

 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Although several cities are opening up again, many offices are still enforcing work from home policies. As they did when Stay at Home first began, plenty of organizations are still offering webinars with insights on how to tackle the new normal. Gaining new knowledge is a great way to use extra time that might have been spent on a commute. 

Here at M+E, we’ll keep the following list updated, as some webinars are live and some are pre-recorded. Please email lauren.pahmeier@tigeroak.com to add more applicable webinars to the list.
