We love this hotel. The restaurant itself is enough of a draw; its some of the best food we have had period. It makes other hotel restaurants look like mediocre fast food. The staff is always welcoming and pleasant. The rooms are always well appointed and clean. This hotels is across from the BART station and within walking distance to many other great restaurants as well as the UC Berkeley campus. We come here to visit our son at CAL. The first thing we do is have dinner at the restaurant Five. It is something we all look forward too. The wait staff is great.
