This is an older property right in the heart of Berkeley that is really updated and well managed. Great beds, linens, rooms and service. Our room was quiet. Bathrooms are nice-large and we were upgraded to a suite which is always really nice! We chose this property because it had close proximity to the BART station. Was perfect for staying at while we went to the Oakland Coliseum to see Bruce Springsteen. Parking is easy in a garage across the street. We walked to Chez Panisse Cafe - which I highly recommend. Tons of other great restaurants nearby and some nice boutique shopping if you have the inclination. We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant which was very good. I bet the dinner menu there is good as well. We will be back.
