The Club was designed to be the center of city social activity back in the 1920s. It has multiple event rooms, two theaters, and a pool. It is a real mixed bag, and you might be better off just touring the first two floors rather than staying here. The first two floors are beautiful, obviously inspired by a classic Italian...

We stayed here for one night and after getting a deal on living social. The hotel is centrally located and we were able to walk to Memorial Stadium to watch the Cal game. There wasn't a TV in the room but we agreed that it was a good touch seeing as you should be enjoying the sights, not TV. Unfortunately,...

I booked this hotel because of a good deal from Livingsocial for $99/night with breakfast included. I was excited to stay here after checking out their website. It is a historical landmark in Berkeley and it shows with the inimitable style of Julia Morgan, the same architect of the Hearst Castle. The rooms though are another matter. As with the...

This hotel has its history and charm, but what I was really impressed was with the quality of the services there. Everything was perfect: the food (breakfast & dinner), the room was impeccably clean, the manager (Trevor) and his team were always ready to help and I got a room with a wonderful view to the bay. It's very well...

Situated within blocks of University of California , this old club turned into a hotel echoes an earlier time. My room was neat, very clean, and charming. Breakfast was lovely, and the pool a wonderful treat. I would stay here again.

Yes, the building is beautiful, but it would be enough to take a tour of it. The service was not up to the standard of a professionally run hotel. Breakfast was not ready on time when we stayed, and staff could not quite keep on top of the demand when guests were let in. The room was tiny; I believe...

this isn't really a hotel in traditional sense, some kind of historic club. Most definitely a very cool historic building but service was very poor. VERY rude lady at the front desk. rooms are very basic but charming in a strange way! Noisy area, loud construction site right next door. No a/c of course so windows need to be open...

I stayed at this historic hotel for business. I was attending the career fair at Berkeley, and this hotel is just a 5 minute walk from the main campus. The rooms are small and have "old world" charm. That being said, it is very clean. Breakfast is complimentary and it is served buffet style in a very elegant way in...

I rated the hotel as "average" because there are five star aspects....and one star ones. Those who want a swish hotel should stay elsewhere. Those who relish being in a Julia Morgan "castle" in the heart of Berkeley will love it. As the website says, the rooms are "modest". I stayed in two different rooms; the queen one was nice,...

We recently stayed at the Berkeley City Club along with other members of a wedding party. I was very impressed. The BCC is within easy walking distance of the UC campus as well as restaurants and shops in the Telegraph Ave area. The look and feel is classic elegance. While the regular rooms are a bit small, the views are...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Berkeley City Club was elaborately crafted by architect Julia Morgan. Carved archways, vaulted ceilings, an indoor mosaic tiled swimming, and leaded-glass windows overlooking lush courtyards give the building its unique old world charm. The Berkeley City Club boasts six floors of classically designed standard, junior suite and suite size hotel rooms. Experience breathtaking views from each room, whether its the iconic fog rolling in over the San Francisco bay or the beautiful sunrises over the Berkeley Hills. Enjoy complimentary breakfast, including fresh fruit, toast, bagels, pastries, hard-boiled eggs, oatmeal, yogurt and juice. For entertainment, check out special member events, fitness classes, theater performances, salon services, lounge hours and dining in the restaurant, Julia's or visit local Berkeley attractions just steps away from the Club. ... more   less
