I got a Groupon for this place and went for 2 nights - loved the place, staff were amazingly helpful and friendly - feels like a real people place, I felt they knew me after just a 2 night stay. It was lovely to experience the character of the building too - beautiful architecture. Great breakfast in wonderful dining room,... More

If you love history. If you love Julia Morgan. You will love the Berkeley City Club. Originally a women's-only club, it has been painstakingly restored and is now part of Historic Hotels of America. Not today's boutique hotel, the BCC is all about quiet elegance of bygone times. If your heart's desire is to live like a king or queen,... More

We're so glad to hear you enjoyed Bay Views from your hotel room! Thank you for your amazing room. It's great to hear you found wi-fi throughout the hotel, sometimes the connection can be a bit spotty if you're not in the main lobby and lounge areas. More

We stayed here for two nights and I could have stayed a week! Very charming and clean. The building is historical, so if you need new and a Flat Screen TV go elsewhere. The food is excellent! My husband and I ate dinner there one evening and had no idea we would be eating 5****meal! Service was flawless as well.... More

We are self-professed architectural history junkies and made a "pilgrimage" to this lovely building. We were not disappointed. Loved to walk through the rooms, admiring the details, the gardens, the timeless feel., Property is in good shape. Breakfast was included, served in a lovely room and was good quality. Note that parking is convenient but costs $20/night. Room is small... More

The architecture is so pleasing. Great views, especially if you get a room facing the bay. The rooms aren't modern or spacious, but that adds to the charm. Friendly staff. Not far from the campus or to the BART station.

Great Hotel stay in the bay area. Nice place. Great place to wonder and just check it out. Hotel has had a zillion dollars spent on it to save it, and in shows. You will be happy you stayed here. Great coffee in the AM.

I'm always looking for a hotel with pool facilities where you can actually swim laps. Although the depth on one side of the pool is only 3 feet, the other side is plenty deep for flip turns and it is 25 yards long with four lanes for swimming laps! Plus it is a very artistic pool - designed by Julia... More

This hotel is beautiful. They've preserved the historic feel and ambiance of this place. I half expected to see folks walking around in aristocratic 1930s attire. There are lots of different areas to explore (garden courtyard, library/study, coffee/game area, dining room, pool, historic records, etc.) You will be surrounded by historic elegance. It was all so fancy and extravagant. The... More

I stayed here using a Living Social deal, so making the reservation wasn't easy (they were full for weeks). It is such a neat building, every window and arch are so pretty. We wandered around after hours and saw the library, the dinig room and they looked so serene and beautiful. We found several outside "patios" with views. The rooms... More

As a member of the City Club, I frequently send my guests there and have stayed there myself. It is the only Julia Morgan designed hotel in Berkeley, and an architectural jewel. (Julia Morgan restored the Fairmont Hotel in SF after the earthquake and designed the Hearst Castle on Highway 1). Nowhere else in Berkeley can you live architectural history.... More
