We stayed at the Berkeley City Club to attend a wedding there. The hotel was quite unique in that it is a historical site from the architecture to the actual building. The staff and service was very good, prompt and courteous. The room and beds were clean and comfortable. Being a historical site, one should be aware that rooms to... More

I've stayed at Berkeley City Club before -- it is indeed lovely -- the architecture and location are splendid. But I cannot recommend this hotel based on my last planned visit and subsequent interactions with staff. I bought a prepaid voucher (the kind you can get through places like Travelzoo, Living Social, Groupon, etc.) and planned to stay one night.... More

Our daughter recommended this hotel when we were headed to visit her and her partner. I was very excited because I was familiar with Architect Julia Morgan as she had designed Asilomar in Pacific Grove, and was one of the first female architects in California. The building was designed originally as a women's club in the 1920's (as I recall)... More

Dear Leslie, Thank you so very much for your kind review. I agree, Julia Morgan was quite the talented architect. The building is simply majestic to walk through. We truly wish you all the best and many thanks to your daughter for recommending us! More

Hotel's location was so convenient. You can walk to shopping centers like central world, platinum mall or pantip plaza. If you like a flee market, the Indra market just located right next to the hotel. Wifi and room service are simply superb. Room was so new and super clean. Staff can speak good command of English. Just one thing a... More

Architecturally pleasing and convenient to all the Berkeley highlights. We stayed for a concert at Zellerbach Hall and it was only a 5 min walk to the venue. Both which were lovely. The structure is early California and intimate. We were not able to have dinner at the hotel but, the dining room is a step into the deco past.... More

We booked this hotel for a spur of the moment stay at Berkeley. We chose the Berkeley City Club for its proximity to the Berkeley campus and for its beautiful architecture. The building is beautiful and harkens back to a totally different era, but the furnishings are well worn, bordering on shabby. One very nice touch is the use of... More

This Julia Morgan-designed, old and historic hotel was once a women's club and is still a membership club with lots of activities, pool, and great ambiance. As a hotel, it's no-frills and old, but truly charming with very cool architecture and comfy, little nooks that are a real treat. The Julia Morgan Room and the Library are worth visiting for... More

My wife and I spent 5 nights at this architectural delight. The location was perfect for us. We were in Berkeley to attend a fabulous CAL Performances Concert. If you are visiting for one of these concerts, this is an ideal hotel. First Congressional Church is just across the street and the other main venue, Zellerbach Hall is a couple... More

The club is from a beautiful time period and that is reflected in the first and second floors. The guest rooms are sparse and old, but clean. It was noisy due to the construction even though I was told I had a quiet room. The room did not have good airflow and stayed warm through the night with the window... More

We enjoyed our stay at this lovingly preserved historic hotel. Rooms were simple and comfortable, with great beds and porcelain tubs with shower conversion. Wood floors and rugs, original decor. So refreshing to avoid the plastic, anonymous and characterless sort of hotel and just walk back here after a great lunch at Chez Panisse. The windows open and their are... More
