Great location near the Berkeley campus. Other than that, it could use some improvements. Folks at the reception could use some training in smiling and welcoming guests. My room was warm, no ventilation, or air conditioning. I did not sleep well. The complimentary breakfast on the sixth floor was a joke. I will avoid that hotel next time I come to Berkeley. This hotel was average 30 years ago when I was a student. It is still average 30 years later.
