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 swimming pool is so impressive. The bottom is all small tiles forming the decorative patterns. Lots of extras - like in the locker room/changing area next to the pool, there is a machine that spins the water out of your swimming suit - and they provide q-tips to get the water out of your ears. We were fortunate that they had a special deal going at the time that we stayed, so we got a great price. Our room was right next to a balcony with a great view. The free breakfast had a decent variety to choose from. Service was good. And it's within walking distance to multiple restaurants, including Herbivore.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Blending Romanesque and Moorish architecture, the Berkeley City Club was elaborately crafted by Hearst Castle designer Julia Morgan. Carved archways, vaulted ceilings, an indoor mosaic tiled swimming, and leaded-glass windows overlooking lush courtyards give the building its unique old world charm. The Berkeley City Club boasts six floors of classically designed standard, junior suite and suite size hotel rooms. Experience breathtaking views from each room, whether its the iconic fog rolling in over the San Francisco bay or the beautiful sunrises over the Berkeley Hills. Enjoy complimentary breakfast in the dining room, including fresh fruit, toast, bagels, pastries, hard-boiled eggs, oatmeal, yogurt, and juice. For entertainment, check out special member events, fitness classes, theater performances, salon services, lounge hours and dining in the restaurant, Julia's or visit local Berkeley attractions just steps away from the Club. ... more less
