  • Super building

    by UKTurkeyTrotter on 2019-02-12 04:52 pm

    This building was designed by Julia Morgan, who was also the architect for Hearst Castle.

    The pool is a bit reminiscent of the one in Hearst Castle and the general style has similarities too.

    It's its own little wonderland, beautifully kept and with great external elevations with interesting details. Staff are great.

  • Hmmmmmm....

    So this is a tough review because Berkeley City Club is a bit all over the place. The standard rooms are small with I guess date appropriate furniture. To me, the furniture was functional and out dated. The shower was different - they added a shower curtain on an oval all the way around he tub - so now it's a restricted size shower that can't be used as a bath any more because the shower curtain goes 360 degrees around you with 4 places where the curtain can't go past. The water pressure was very (very) low. You cannot control the room temperature with a thermostat - you use the space heater (in the closet) or open windows. You have 6 pillows in the room but they are all the same pillow type (with that many pillows I figured I would have a choice). The included breakfast was pretty good - it is a really nice continental breakfast. The staff was friendly and helpful. The views were decent from the room and the proximity to Cal was great. The adjacent parking lot was a benefit ($20 a day).

  • Relaxed stay in historical surroundings.

    This old Club hotel in Berkeley is really a place I Can recommend. The rooms are old in a charming Way, very clean and some of Them have a nice view over the Bay Area. The staff are very kind and helpfull and the breakfast are good.

  • A lovely place to stay

    We visited over the holidays. The lobby was festive and extra beautiful with a tree, menorah, and poinsettias . Our room on the Sixth Floor facing west had been recently renovated with new carpet, drapes, and pergo flooring. The view over Berkeley to San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge was spectacular. The mattress was the most comfortable I have enjoyed ever. The day staff was friendly and helpful. The night staff was friendly but not especially helpful. We asked for a wake-up call at 5 AM and they scheduled it for 5:30 AM. Fortunately, we had also set our alarms. The cold breakfast was delicious and the breakfast room was elegant. My only gripes were the ultra-low-flow shower head, which was annoying (especially as the lavatory and toilet were the original 1920s water wasters) and the overall coolness of the building in the Winter. We were able to partially remedy our room temperature with adjustments to the radiator but they appear to only run the heat at night. While it was not a problem for us, prospective guests should know that there are no TVs in the rooms. There is a small TV room with a nice sized TV off the lobby which we used to share photos and videos with our family. Another note, not all of the rooms have been as nicely renovated as our was. My mother-in-law stayed on the 5th Floor facing east and her room had an older carpet and a painted concrete floor.

  • Gorgeous, vintage flair!

    My friends and I were recently here for a seminar. It's a hotel, exclusive club for members only, and rentable for large groups-weddings to use their conference room. Situated in downtown Berkeley, this beautiful 1930's gem has old world architecture, hidden garden niches that transport you to a serene other world. The Berkeley City Club has helpful staff, an on location French restaurant (check hours and day operations) an on site lounge/bar...but it is also surrounded by so much within walking distance of the facility. I love their indoor lap pool. It's absolutely gorgeous! Rooms are quaint with capturing old world charm of the 1930's.
    Overall a piece of Berkeley you don't want to miss!
