The website and the actual hotel are not the same!! No bellman to help with your bags or car. NO onsite place to leave your car overnight. Rooms musty. Noisy rooms. THe bathroom is updated and nice. Didn't want to set bags on the carpet. Internet and TV updated. Just VERY surprised at the hotel vs. the website looking like... More

Stayed here for two nights while attending meetings in Oakland, where there were no hotel rooms available. This is one of those hotels where someone dresses it up to look "hip," I guess, but where everything is form over function. A) Rooms were dark. It's a pet peeve of mine to have lighting seemingly just for "mood," and not for... More

Hotel is very nice. Excellent accommodations! Parking can be expensive, ask at front desk or when you make reservations. Food is very tasty! Nice atmosphere in bar and restaurant. Friendly staff as well as attentive. Located in down town area with lot to see and do near by.

This is a nice boutique hotel that has been recently remodeled in Downtown Berkeley. They have a nice bar and great restaurant on property. There are a number of good bars and restaurants within walking distance and the Cal football stadium is only about a mile away. I'd suggest Ubering there and walking home as it's all uphill to the...

Overall the hotel is nice... the rooms were nice and clean and the bed was comfortable. But, the hotel staff (front desk, mainly) was not good, in fact I would say they were rude. I think being friendly and accommodating goes a long way and it can make or break an experience....

We came in for a football game at Cal-Berkeley and decided to leverage the trip to see the Bay area. The hotel location was perfect for this. There is a BART station across the street and it was an easy ride to the Embarcadero station in SF. The hotel is a block from the Berkeley campus, so lots of good... More

This historic hotel has a new look thru out with restaurant and bar off the lobby. It lacks in the everyday amenities I appreciate in nicer hotels. There are 3 tiny drawers in the closet to store clothes, the lights are spots near the bed and one on the desk making it very dark in the room, there is no... More

The hotel, staff, and room where great. The location was awesome; restaurants and convenience stores all around. I rated it a 4 because of the lack of "on-site" secure parking. This is an issue if you need your vehicle in the middle of the night; and the 2 parking garages close by are closed for the night. I mean they... More

I regret that you found your experience 50/50. It seems as thought it was mainly the parking. I regret that we did not inform you that the parking ticket can get you after hours access to the Allston Way garage. For the lot on Kittredge Street, this is not the case. I would also recommend BART if you are flying... More

Excellent location right by Berkeley. Room was a good size, clean, and relatively new looking. But lack of key details to make it a 5-star review - no bottles of water in room, no overhead light in bedroom and other lighting not sufficient. No choice of newspaper delivery, etc.
