We spent one night in this hotel and wished we had stayed longer. The positive reviews are well deserved. This is a historic property, built in the Mission Revival Style, and has loads of charm and a quirkiness that makes it feel modern. We arrived very early in the morning and were pleasantly surprised to be checked in right away. All staff we encountered were wonderful, particularly at the front desk. Yes the rooms and bathrooms could be larger, and pedestal sinks drive me crazy, but the character of the property and the hotel experience more than makes up for it. If this is of importance, it is pet friendly and environmentally conscious.The property is situated right by the BART station and is a few moments walk to the UCBerkeley campus. The dining room and bar is a beautiful space. We had a cocktail one night and the bar tender was quite willing to make a custom cocktail on the fly. Breakfast the next morning was solid and well priced for a hotel dining room. I cant imagine there is a better place to stay in Berkeley.
