I think this hotel needs to be reviewed in context and not compared to newer accommodation available. Okay, the rooms don't have air conditioning but the building is nearly 100 years old; how can A/C be added unobtrusively without taking away from the building's character?...More

This is a really special building, with lovely common spaces. The hotel rooms are very modest but clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, right next to the Cal campus. Great continental breakfast included in room price. There is a great pool, I wish I'd...More
