Stayed 4 nights for a conference at UCB... Both my husband and I had attended Cal, but did not even realize this hotel was here before! The location is so easy next to the BART station in downtown Berkeley (which of course comes with some homeless folks on Shattuck, but they are everywhere in Berkeley so...) The room was pretty good sized, not huge but not tiny either. The bar and restaurant are really good (pricey, but delicious). Hubby loved the various beers on tap (especially the dark ones), and I had a sample of a bunch of drinks from their specialty menu (yum). Ate breakfast at the hotel every day (ok, spent a lot here, but convenience and friendly staff made it easy for us and our 4 year old daughter). We really enjoyed our stay! Only major drawback is there is no hotel valet or parking, we had to park in a lot (which had strange pricing policies, sometimes for overnight we paid $5, sometimes $7.50, sometimes $12). We faced Shattuck, so the noise level was not too bad except for some emergency vehicle sirens once in a while or some drumming late Friday night, but still not too loud with the windows and drapes shut.
