This is a toughie. First, if you demand valet parking, room service, sparkling up to date rooms and a hotel bar, do not stay here. You will be unhappy. The City Club is a historically and significant building designed by Julia Morgan whose Board has...More

Thank you for your review, Ann, and for encouraging others to keep an open mind. The Berkeley City Club may not a perfect fit for all travelers, but it can be for those who can appreciate it for what it is. We are glad you...More

No T.V, little wi-fi: my idea of heaven. The pool looked amazing. It is a quaint, other-worldly place. Perfect for a writer! They even gave me a phone charger for my cell. Bliss. The heating was stuck on in my room, which was strange. Otherwise,...More

Reviewed 21 June 2014

I've stayed here a couple times now. As you can read from all the other reviews, the building itself is one-of-a-kind and beautiful. It's an old-style hotel, meaning small rooms and big, beautiful public spaces. Where else can you find a beautiful courtyard, a solarium,...More

I have enjoyed my stops at the Berkeley City Club in the past, but this time I was traveling with a friend who became ill. At such times you become aware of the lack of valet parking, a bellhop, or room service. The charm of...More

Dear Burrsearcher, Thank you so very much for your review. I am sorry that your friend became sick during your stay. We appreciate you finding the silver lining even in unfortunate circumstances. We truly wish you all the best.

Reviewed 29 May 2014

This is a beautiful building that was originally built as a women's club by Julia Morgan, who also designed the Hearst Castle. This, too, bears resemblance to a castle of sorts, with huge stone archways and grand, high ceilings in the lobby and sitting rooms....More
