This is the grand (and on occasion only decent) hotel in Berkeley. I stayed there 48 years ago as a teenager. It was really run down then and I'd heard that it had gone through a recent renovation as part of the branding change to Fairmont. The public areas are very nice, but the room, service and general attitude makes... More

Awesome property that has been around for 101 years. They hosted many politicians, celebrities and dignitaries. Amazing old world charm that has been updated but retained its original elegant feel. Great cafe right outside the property too called Rick & Ann's, you will not be disappointed. They do not take reservations but it's worth the wait :)

Booked hotel without knowing how amazing the location was or how historical the venue is. Big hotel room! Beautiful hotel and scenery. Friendly staff with amazing customer service. Loved the bathtub! Hotel room was very luxurious. Ordered room service- they accommodated my food allergies. Definitely coming back.

Initial room reservation went well, however, later, I called to see if they would honor the trip advisor discount. I spoke with three different people who all had different information which was annoying and no discount was offered. We arrived before checkin time hoping for an early checkin which was not available. At checkin time, 4pm, they said our room... More

Absolutely amazing staff and amenities. The hotel is a beautiful site tucked into the Berkeley Hills. The rooms are clean and had the comforts that made our stay even more enjoyable. The spa and pool areas were great.

I am originally from the Bay Area. I usually stay with family when I visit. My daughter was getting married at the Berkeley botanical gardens. It made the most sense to stay here. Everything about this resort is beautiful. I loved seeing all the old fixtures mixed with the modern improvements. Considering how much the hotels in town were charging,... More

Beautiful facility!! Our room didn't have a view but who hangs out in the room anyway? Nice heated pools, many tennis courts, pretty grounds, welcoming lobby, pleasant staff. Great time for a day trip. Was able to Uber to Jack London District for $3. My bed was super comfortable with lots of pillows. Had everything we needed for a great... More

Beautiful setting, excellent service, lovely pool area. The cafe by the pool is inexpensive and service was very good. Good family setting. One thing: Didn't like all the little ones in the hot tub but the hotel may not have control over this since the club area is private.

I drove from Los Angeles hoping to spend one fabulous night with my daughters before we check out UC Berkeley Campus. The hotel looked stunning from the distance. When we got to it, the Bell Man were very pleasant and helpful. The reservation process was fast and easy. However, my hotel room (and i wasn't getting a deal on it)... More
