During your stay be sure & find all 3 gardens. In addition each floor has a small outside space where, when it is clear, you have a view of San Francisco & Golden Gate Bridge. Try to time a view at sunset. Don’t forget to notice the details. The architect, Julia Morgan, also designed most of the light fixtures, as... More

The lovely old building designed by Julia Morgan in the 20's is now a hotel/b and b. Much more reasonable than most places in San Francisco and Berkeley, and a very central location. The rooms can be small, and the bathrooms are original; but i have stayed here many times, and love all the old rooms; and the first two... More

Great experience at this historic hotel. Great breakfast in very nice dining room. Old but extremely well maintained. A real treat. Indoor swimming pool was interesting. Parking pricey at $20 a night . Walking distance to UC Berkeley.

Family and friends all booked rooms at the lovely Berkeley City Club, where my niece's wedding reception took place. What a beautiful, historic gem! Room rates at The City Club are reasonable, with a civilized breakfast included. This is an elegant little piece of history, designed by the first female architect in California, Julia Morgan. The structure is very well-kept... More

My husband spent our first night here of a two night get away. We got a great deal using Groupon for a queen bed room. Plan to spend some time exploring and taking in the architecture and gardens of this property - they are amazing. Bring your swimsuit and don't miss out on a chance to swim in their beautiful...

The architecture in the public areas is amazing. Go and see it; just have a meal or attend a play. The front door is locked, and you have to be buzzed in. We buzzed twice, but no one responded. Someone leaving the Club opened the door for us. The front desk person was busy with 2 other guests who were... More

I booked this hotel after getting a great deal on it and it worked out perfectly in terms of location as we arrived at SFO and were heading up to Sonoma for a wedding. We arrived at 2am due to delays at O'Hare and the car rental office, but were greeted by the friendly night deskman. Our room was cute... More

What a wonderful old club/hotel. It's like going back in time. Sort of like being in a dormitory in a prestigious school. Comfortable rooms. No TV. That's a plus!! Lovely indoor pool. "Secret" Garden Courtyard. Delicious help-yourself buffet breakfast with wonderful old tunes playing. Lots of interesting groups meeting day and night to peek in at. I will return!

After reading the reviews..I have to say let's be fair..people who are planning a wedding have some pretty crazy expectations. Let's separate the two adventures. We went as tourists only and loved the place. The architecture, the history, the breakfast, the scrabble board, the atrium. We were able to get a parking spot mid week no problem. Check in staff...
