This Julia Morgan-designed, old and historic hotel was once a women's club and is still a membership club with lots of activities, pool, and great ambiance. As a hotel, it's no-frills and old, but truly charming with very cool architecture and comfy, little nooks that are a real treat. The Julia Morgan Room and the Library are worth visiting for their history and so is spying into all the various rooms that host shows and meetings. Guests are treated to an ample breakfast of cereal, bagels, muffins, and fruit in the lovely old dining room. Hotel rooms, while small and old-fashioned, have very comfortable beds and large closets. We stayed in one of the very few rooms with two beds - a double and twin.The hotel's location, just about 2 blocks from the main street, is ideal - away from the hustle, but close enough to walk everywhere. Some of the neighboring buildings are a bit tired and sketchy. The hotel is very accessible from Oakland Airport via BART.
- 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
