I stayed here for a few days before Christmas while visiting my daughter. It is conveniently located near the Downtown Berkeley BART station in a beautiful old building downtown. The first room I stayed in was very small, but what it lacked in size it made up for in charm. It was a corner room, and I had windows on two separate walls, which made it seem larger. On my last night there I needed a larger room. This room was facing Shattuck, and unfortunately not as quiet as the first room. Every evening in the lobby there were fresh cookies and hot spiced cider. All in all, it was a very nice place to stay during the holidays.
