  • Good Location for a Show at the Greek

    by Roger H on 2018-07-12 08:13 am

    We needed a spot to land after the Ray LaMontagne show and City Club was available. It is walkable with a bit of a climb form the Club to the Greek.The rooms are historic so they will not wow you but it is quaint. The pool does not live up to the pictures. It is smaller than I expected and the chlorine aroma is overwhelming. The complimentary brunch is very good and the setting in Julia's restaurant is like a time machine to the 1920s. There is a nice view of SF from the elevator landing on the north end of the hotel.

  • Historic Architecture

    by Cary N on 2018-07-04 11:54 am

    This is a historic building with architecture so distinctive that tours of the site are held regularly. The lobby has modified Romanesque arches and a beautiful open air walled courtyard with15-foot-high ferns among which are chairs and tables. But Berkeley can be cool in the mornings; you'll need a jacket or sweater. The hotel has a highly regarded restaurant, Julia's, and rooms come with a continental breakfast. Why the restaurant was mostly ket dark for breakfast I cannot guess. HOWEVER, the rooms are Spartan. Many are without a desk to work at, and the electrical service is very limited. If you want more than 2 outlets, bring an extra one. Temperature control is only by opening or closing a window. So if you just want a place to shower & sleep, it's fine.

  • Event venue or Historical Tours

    by WriterforPeace on 2018-06-18 06:02 pm

    This is architect Julia Morgan's "Little Castle" with an interior resplendent with gorgeous artifacts and interior design from the turn of the century. Morgan designed the Hearst Castle, and you don't have to travel long distances to see her work when we have this gem in Berkeley. Look online for a Sunday tour, or ring the door bell and come in for lunch or dinner; see if you can get a sneak peak at the mosaics in the aqua indoor pool.

  • Like a Visit to a Wealthy Great Aunt

    Stayed on night at the beginning of a road trip. Had discovered Julia Morgan after a visit to Hear Castle and wanted the chance to stay at one of her buildings. If you like history and don't mind giving up things like TV and air conditioning then you would enjoy a stay here. The public spaces are magnificent and well maintained. The rooms are small and traditionallt furnished but very well maintained. Nice toiletries too. The right spot if you like history and architecture, the wrong choice if you want every modern convenience.

  • loved our visit - got the last room for a busy weekend and loved it.

    We were on the 3rd floor and loved the character of this historic hotel. Everyone was so friendly and sweet. They gave us a map and shared info. An extra cot was added to our room and there was still space to walk around. It wasn't noisy but we knew the hotel was full for a busy weekend. Breakfast was ok, rather minimal, but we returned later and found muffins that were not avail. at 7 am. We loved the pool, chock full of fins, noodles and paddle boards. The changing room was old school and very interesting. Walk around and find the nooks and crannies. The last day, the desk was gracious again when we needed a spot to study, and they found us a side room with plugs. We'd love to return. Great place, and walking to UC Berkeley and shops on Telegraph.
