Located at the Berkeley Marina, overlooking the San Francisco Bay, this hotel and conference center in California offers free shuttle service to the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) public transportation...
Score from 265 reviews Good
Loved the location relative to downtown Berkeley and BART access. The hotel is beautiful to walk around and look at. The pool is awesome. For the price, this hotel was sufficient.
I did not like that the rooms (or, my room) did not have TV or a mini-fridge - especially for people who may be staying longer than a day or two. In addition, for business travelers, the hotel did not have very good WiFi. I had to spend most of my time off premise in order to do any telecommuting.
hotel style (college club, British style) and helpful stuff Restaurant serves really good food
bed (very small with very soft mattress) Parking is not free - bit of a weird choice in the US where people take the car even to visit the house next door
Beautiful decor and furnishings and excellent food in restaurant . Location superb for Bart transport restaurants and university
Antiseptic smell in corridors
Loved the rooms -- simple and old-fashioned (in a good way). Events planner and all wait & cleaning staff were exceptionally competent, pleasant, and helpful. The restaurant staff was particularly accommodating.
Office staff attitude came across as provincial, sarcastic. We received incomplete answers to common questions (wi-fi availability, local restaurant locations).
The architecture and ambiance of the hotel are really remarkable. Pool and gardens add to an amazing building of living history
My husband missed the TV in the room
many things 1 very expensive not worth it 2 lack of creativity to use an historical site into a great boutique hotel with all the amenities 3 no tv 4 no fitness 5 rest and bar close early 6 no parking garantee 7 no ramp for luggage 8 very bad internet very poor no routers to improve signal 9 it is combined with a club member which makes guest a second class feeling
Location, the pool, parking, quiet, history, architecture, the nice breakfast room.
Some noise from the U at night but its to be expected
Location. Great courteous staff.
Loud sound. Had to close all the windows but then it was hot.
the desk is too old
The building was erected for the Berkeley City Women’s Club by the Californian star architect Julia Morgan in 1929 and is now rated among the historical landmarks of American architecture. It provides wonderful halls and hallways as well as an amazing patio and a unique indoor swimming pool. It is quite conveniently located between the city center and the campus of UC Berkeley (a 10 minutes’ walk to the BART station, less than five minutes to the Sather Gate entrance of the campus). The complimentary (continental) breakfast was also a nice surprise.
The historical flavor, however, is, to some extent, at the cost of comfort: my room was full of character, but the furniture was most museum-like. The radiator (which started to get hot in the middle of the night and could not be turned off) produced a hellish noise, as did the water pipes of the adjacent rooms and the historical elevator. All in all, a great experience, amazing architecture. However, the next time I will probably settle for something less charming and more on the convenient side.
Beautiful historic building, good breakfast, close to campus, nice area to work by garden and coffee station
The room was a bit hot, and WIFI didn't work in the room
Building is great but as a hotel, so much more could be done to make guests comfortable. Heavily underfunded.
Breakfast was very basic, furnishings very dated, staff clearly had little hotel experience.
You truly step into the 1920's....not only the architecture , but the ambience...soft, gentle, fabulous decor, no TV....I am excited to stay there again next visit.
Because the hotel has no soundproofing and is so close to campus, the crazy partying on the weekend is impactful to sleep.
Location and friendliness of staff, the decoration old but well maintained. It id quite close to campus and has a lot o do in the surroundings
Noise, I was given room 601, it gets noise from the street, especially in the early morning due to trucks and traffic. Besides, the elevator is right besides the room and it does sounds a lot. Finally, if there is an even, you will not sleep until it is over around 11 pm, we were just arriving from a 10 hour flight and this was quite annoying
The front desk people were cooperative.
1. The room were small. 2. There is no air conditioning of any sort. 3. The toilet seat was old scratched and repulsive. 4. I heard the toilet flushing of other rooms every 5 minutes in loud speakers which was awful! 5. No TV screen in the room like in dark ages!!!!!!!! Not acceptable at all. 6. A lot of noise in the corridors all night long!!! I couldn't sleep. 7. No refrigerator!!! 8. No Electric Kettle or Coffee Maker!!! 9. No Microwave! For God sake how do you charge $187 ($ 165+tax)/ night for that inconvenient room with very limited facilities?!!! Don't you compare yourself with other decent hotels? You should be honest enough to refund me at least half of the money you charged me ($372.9/2 nights) because you don't deserve even 1/4 of what I payed. I am waiting for your refund or I will spread the word among all my colleagues and friends in Berkeley and other cities in USA and abroad. Send a check to: Professor Azza M.

The pool looked like the Hearst Castle!
A unique hotel located in a 1920-30s neo-gothic architectonic monument. Very different from the overly standardized type of US hotels. Recommendable to those who prefer historical authenticity over unnecessary comfort. - Short distance to the UCB campus. - Has views of the SF Bay from upper floors.
Gorgeous architecture, close to UC Berkeley. Very friendly staff.
Beds not too comfy and an exhaust fan that ran outside our bedroom window all night.
- Extremely noisy heating elements (air removal mandatory) - No desk and chair - No outlets for charging - Restaurant closes at 8:30p - No place for anything in the bathroom
Nice, small room well furnished with a beatiful view
Sometime noisy during the night, poor quality of wifi
Julia Morgan's architecture is beautiful creating a very relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. The hotel has been upgraded for comfort without spoiling the character of the original club. We were lucky to be upgraded to a suite on the top floor with a great view of San F Bay and plenty of space. The pool is fabulous (although the A/C is noisy) and I loved the quaint changing cubicles with private showers.
Very nice breakfast but it would be nice to provide low fat options (yoghurt, milk, cheese etc). The suite was described as "queen" but the bed was "double" size. Typical of US hotels, shampoo, shower gel and body lotion still come in little disposable containers. Why can't they follow the European example and put these products in large refillable dispensers?
couldn't stay longer
I was lucky enough to get a free upgrade to a fabulous corner suite on the fifth floor. It was huge, beautiful and comfortable. The staff were great and the location was convenient. What a great old hotel.
The building and architecture is lovely. We had a great view from our room of the bay bridge. The location was good for us as we were moving our son to Berkeley university.
Our bed was tipping to one side, pillows were very lumpy and hard. The hot and cold water faucets are separate, can't mix them only in the sink with stopper. The shower took forever to adjust the temp. Moths in the room. Windows slammed from wind, no hinge to stop. Breakfast was ok except coffee cake, breads were dried out. Parking is $20 per night, but not always a spot available so you'd have to pay for another lot or 2 hour parking on street! In short, they need to upgrade and modernize plumbing, cement floors, beds. A hotel can be historic but comfortable with modern conveniences. Very noisy at night with sirens and city noise.
Free wifi, friendly staff, clean linens and towels, lots of pillows.
Continental breakfast was a joke (stale muffins/bagels and warm yogurt), loud neighbors, door are warped - showing light from the halls when shut A sign says only overnight guests above floor 2 but how do you stop that?
