I have always been a lover of architecture, classic old buildings and antique furnishings. When I was younger I sought out opportunities to stay at historic properties, but somewhere along the way I became more appreciative of modern hotel amenities. On this particular trip, we booked only two weeks out, and available properties were scarce with prices very high for... More

Second stay. Second review . See my "It's a castle"review. This place is draw-dropping awe-inspiring. As you can see,I'm hyphen-ating! Transport yourself back 100 years. Don't miiss the pool. Great beds and bay area views. Thank you Mary for the upgrade!

My wife and I stayed at the Bekeley City Club so we could walk to the Greek Theatre for a Jimmy Buffett concert. The hotel is a masterpiece of historic proportions. The architect also designed Hearst Castle. There were at least four very large grand pianos in various rooms throughout the hotel. I sat at one of those pianos one... More

Lovely ambiance. 1930's architecture beautifully maintained. Room was quaint with excellent quality linens and towels - old fashioned tub with circular shower curtain; great water pressure and the heat pipes in the floor was toasty on bare feet. No TV in rooms - keeping with the era, but wife was available - not strong enough to stream a movie on... More

Almost hate to review this place as it feels like a secret to be cherished. It's like a pocket-sized Hearst castle. From my window I can see the Berkeley campus, I can hear the campus bells and the shouts of happy children in the playground across the street, and I am steps away from great theaters, fine restaurants, bookstores and...

I think this hotel needs to be reviewed in context and not compared to newer accommodation available. Okay, the rooms don't have air conditioning but the building is nearly 100 years old; how can A/C be added unobtrusively without taking away from the building's character? I can understand how the rooms can be described as noisy, but when you know... More

Unique architecture greets you as soon as you enter this legacy of the 1st woman architect licensed in CA, Julia Morgan. However what grabbed me was the RESTFUL atmosphere with interior courtyards and little seating areas just perfect for reading and sipping tea/coffee. Heated indoor FAMOUS pool lives up to its reputation, little coffee/tea niche on 1st floor for whenever... More

I was booked here by an institute at UC-Berkeley. Beautiful building, although strangely without modern wifi. I liked the location. But I was jetlagged, and both nights there were noisy events, loud and amplified music, loudspeaker directly beneath my room until 11 p.m. I used the lobby area (also affected by this noise), and staff was sympathetic and embarrassed. I... More

Dear Chasemoor, Thank you kindly for sharing your experience of the Berkeley City Club. I am sorry that it was not a quiet, restful location for you. Since we are an event venue and private social club as well, our hotel guests sometimes bear witness to the added noise. With that said, we do request that events end by 11pm... More

I was upgraded to a suite on the top floor with a view to die for! Yes no air conditioning, no tv, spotty wifi, old lighting... yet the view and the location makes it a fabulous find. If you are older, be prepared to do some schlepping. Its Not easy to check in or out - no assistants outside to... More

This is a really special building, with lovely common spaces. The hotel rooms are very modest but clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, right next to the Cal campus. Great continental breakfast included in room price. There is a great pool, I wish I'd had my bathing suit. In my experience visiting Berkeley over a five year period, and... More
