I am writing to give a huge thank you to Heather Ratner. COVID has made traveling increasing complicated. When I booked my stay, I was very concerned about logistics and safety. Heather was so patient and understanding; it felt like she was working out my plans with me and I left that phone call feeling reassured and extremely confident in my decision to stay at the Berkeley City Club. Unfortunately, the day before I was supposed to arrive, I found out that my flight had been canceled due to COVID concerns. I called the hotel, and didn’t know what to expect but, once again, the phone was answered by Heather and she provided the same stellar and understanding service. Although plans were unfortunately changed, my interactions with this hotel has made it my first pick for any travel to the Bay Area. I’m now a loyal fan and look forward to staying here and seeing the amazing architecture in person when travel conditions are a bit more stable. Thank you Heather and team for all of your thoughtfulness. The experience with your hotel was a silver lining to an otherwise frustrating situation and I truly appreciate the kindness.

This beautiful building designed by Julia Morgan has maintained it's sense of time and place. The rooms are older but beds are very comfortable and every need is accounted for: mirrors where you want them, heaters for bathroom and room if needed. A sense of quiet decorum in a beautiful spot. Do have coffee in the interior courtyard. Lovely.

Yes the full sized pool is nice, but the hotel is NOISY. Doors and walls between rooms are extremely thin and the hotel books large, noisy parties that make one feel like you re staying next to a fraternity, our room was next to the elevator, noisy and squeaky all night. I had to complain about the WiFi, which was a weak and slow connection repeatedly. Since there is no TV then streaming speed should be available. It was not. Parking is $25.00 per night. The staff member who “welcomed“ us couldn’t stop yawning and could not explain the parking time framework. She was not typical because most staff were extremely kind and helpful. Still, th enlace does not really seem to be trying to make a profit. The Conservancy guarantees its survival weather guests are happy or not. by all means visit, have a drink in the lovely bar, eat at Julia’s Restaurant, tour the place - but go sleep somewhere else!

This historical hotel is comfortable and clean. It is in a great location for walking around Berkeley. It’s a little far from the BART, average of 10 minutes walk, but not terrible. Service at the hotel is friendly but quiet. Water pressure in shower is weak but maybe that’s because they don’t want you using water due to the drought. The door lock is a physical key.

I stay at the property frequently and always enjoy it! The building itself is a classic and elegant in an old world way. From the must use indoor pool to the charming cozy bar it’s truly homey. Do not expect luxury in the rooms, no tv for instance but location, charm and price are all well worth it.
