For the first time in 14 years the U.S. Open Golf Championship will be played at San Francisco’s historic Olympic Club just an hour’s drive from The Rose Hotel. We invite you to attend this special event watched by millions around the world, and we’re offering a U.S. Open Special Promotion to help smooth the way.

Call this deal a “2fer.” Golf fanciers might want to call it an “eagle.” We call it two room nights at The Rose Hotel for the price of one during the weekend of June 16-17. That’s right, two room nights for just $260 plus the required 8 percent tax.

Being a boutique hotel, each of our rooms has a distinct motif, while maintaining a consistent décor among the rooms, corridors and main lobby. A step into the main lobby is a step into the old world of marble, wood paneling, wrought iron chandeliers and hand rails. Hand-painted murals, granite table tops, estate-style drapes and period furniture complete the charming ambiance.

Spend your days at the U.S. Open watching the world’s most talented golfers, or play some rounds of golf yourself at the area’s outstanding courses. Not a golf fan? Take advantage of our U.S. Open Special Promotion to do something else you enjoy, such as relaxing at any number of opulent nearby spas, or helping yourself to the region’s outstanding shopping outlets. When you’ve finished, we’ll have your room and amenities ready for you to enjoy.

Book your room now. Call (800) 843-9540 or (925) 846-8802 and ask for the U.S. Open Special.

This year’s U.S. Open will be held June 14-17. Four previous U.S. Opens have been hosted at the Olympic Club in 1955, 1966, 1987 and 1998. Established in 1860, the Olympic Club lays claim to being America’s oldest athletic club, and it is still the venue of choice for many local, regional, national and international competitions.

By 1922, the Olympic Club had acquired enough acreage to replace the original golf course with two 18-hole courses.

If you’re coming out to watch the U.S. Open, why not play some golf as well? Here are some of the many available options.

The Course at Wente Vineyards: More than a decade ago, Wente Vineyards and golfing great Greg Norman joined forces to create The Course at Wente Vineyards, with a vision to create Northern California’s premier destination championship golf course.  The Course, voted Best of the East Bay by Diablo magazine readers multiple times, has become well known among golfers as one of the most beautiful and challenging in Northern California.

Callippe Preserve: Designed by Brian Costello, of JMP Golf Design Group, Callippe Preserve was designed to cater to the wide spectrum of players. Varieties of terrain are spread throughout the course. The front nine are routed through the valley. The back nine follow on a higher elevation with the Happy Valley Creek winding throughout. Superior views of Mount Diablo fill the sky line to the north and incredible sanctuaries dedicated to the Callippe Butterfly are displayed on holes 11 through 14.

Pasatiempo Golf Club: Ranked No. 11 in Golf Magazines Greatest 100 Public Courses list and No. 55 on its Top 100 Courses in the Country list, Pasatiempo was the home course for famed architect Alister MacKenzie. You’ve heard about MacKenzie’s other courses – Augusta National, Cypress Point, Royal Melbourne, to name a few – but Pasatiempo was his favorite course.

Cordevalle Resort: Cordevalle is a semi-private club and resort located in San Martin, approximately an hour from Olympic Club. It’s a luxury facility with beautiful private villas, a fitness center, pool and many amenities, and it has been recognized as a top golf resort by Conde Nast.

Pebble Beach: Host site of five U.S. Opens, and the Annual AT&T Pro-Am, there isn’t much more to say. Truly an American treasure and should be played once in a lifetime.

Spyglass Hill: Ranked No. 9 in Golf Magazines Greatest 100 Public Courses list, and No. 48 on its Top 100 Courses in the country list, Spyglass Hill is a Robert Trent Jones Sr. classic that lies between Cypress Point and Pebble Beach.

Links at Spanish Bay: An ocean side classic, this Robert Trent Jones Jr./Tom Watson/Sandy Tatum design features spectacular ocean views and great links style golf. It’s part of the Pebble Beach resort, and always ranked among the top public courses in the country.

Blackhorse and Bayonet: This 36-hole layout was originally a set of military golf courses, sold to the City of Seaside in 1997 as part of the closure of Fort Ord. The courses recently underwent extensive renovations, and they are both long, tough championship courses. They are located in the Monterey Bay area.

Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Links: Not your typical municipal course, Pacific Grove features great views of the Pacific Ocean and the areas natural sand dunes. Originally designed by Chandler Egan in 1932, the first nine holes take you through the forested areas of Pacific Grove. The back nine is a gem, designed by Jack Neville, original designer of the Pebble Beach Golf Links. Ranked by Golf Magazine as one of the nation’s Top 50 courses under $50 (non-residents pay just $45 on weekends for 18 holes).

Whatever your pleasure, our U.S. Open Special Promotion applies to you.
