I stayed here early March as a chaperone with a group of 40 high school students. First off, this hotel is new, clean, and has a great decor. The rooms are rather small (except for corner rooms), but nicely appointed. The have Aveda amenities in the bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful, especially considering the hotel had at least 3 groups of high school students, including our group, staying for the weekend. There was free coffee every morning in the lobby, but there was also a coffee maker in the room.
I ate at the restaurant one evening and it was very good; I only had a salad and a small appetizer but the main dishes I saw looked great.
The location is great! Right next to the Bart, within walking distance of Berkeley, and lots of coffee shops and restaurants close by.
THE BEST PART: I was concerned that I was going to get no sleep because of the students running around, making noise, etc. However the rooms must be very well insulated, because I didn't hear anything and I am the world's lightest sleeper! There was no noise from above, and no noise from any of the rooms next door or in the halls. It was great!
I highly recommend this hotel and just made another reservation for the Berkeley admitted student's weekend in April!More
