This hotel was such a beautiful stay. The staff were not only friendly but also accommodating of my last minute needs. My flight arrived a little late and were able to make things easy for my friend who arrived earlier to check in without me there. When I arrived I was greeted

Thank you Oscar. We are within walking distance to the UC Berkeley campus and Greek Theatre. It does depend on your mobility but typically would take around 20 minutes consists of mostly flat terrain. We hope you enjoy the show!

Thank you for asking this excellent questions.The Club facilities, which includes the pool, fitness area and great selection of fitness classes, are included for all registered guests who are staying at the hotel. We do not currently offer a day use option, in order to best ensure the comfort and satisfaction of our guests. These amenities can be quite popular as you might imagine! Please note, the Spa facilities do have their own whirlpool as part of its amenity offerings and if you are a patron of this area you will have a great deal of options in order to ensure your comfort.

Is it really haunted?
I don't think so either. I grew up near there (since 1954) and it wasn't famous for being haunted. Lots of fun sliding down the old fire escape shoot back in the day. It's old but cool.

Hi! Thank you for reaching out. A taxi to campus would be approximately $15, and walking is about 30 minutes. Thank you!
