  • Berkeley's Best Kept Secret, BCC is a GEM!

    by rockyblumhagen on 2019-06-07 11:12 am

    I was in Berkeley for a yoga training at Shambhala Meditation Center. The Berkeley City Club was the perfect hotel for the training. It is quiet and historical. It is listed with the Historical Hotels of America. Built in the 1930's by the famed architect, Julia Morgan and no one has messed it up. I loved the pool. The bed comfortable, linens nice, with amenities that make a 10 day longer term stay the perfect choice. I am already booked to return mid July. Julia, the overnight attendant even prepared our Peet's coffee for a daily 4:45 AM departure, now that is customer service. Michael & Langdon were great at the front desk too. And Mario does an excellent job with the grounds and the hotel windows and all common areas are so clean. They must have a wonderful General Manager!

  • A Unique Experience

    by Sharon8here on 2019-05-15 05:56 am

    I didn't realize when I booked this hotel that it was a landmark and it only had 30+ rooms. Most people use this hotel as a club (they sign in and out). The hotel opened in 1930, and it feels like the 1930's in decor and in the absence of what is normally in modern hotels (a television, small refrigerator, etc.). The water pressure in the shower was great. The bed was comfortable. A continental breakfast came with the room. Breakfast was served in a beautiful room. The hotel felt like it was once a monastery, but it wasn't. The last night I was there, a wedding was going on 2 floors below and I could hear the loud music and people. This was why I took one point off the rating. This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I'm glad I had it.

  • Beautiful property, great staff

    I enjoyed my three-night stay. Staff members were friendly and professional, and the property itself is unique and worth exploring.
    The coffee station is great, and the coffee was always hot and strong. The continental breakfast was decent--great selection of pastries, and then pretty standard fruit, yogurt, breads for toasting, etc. I really enjoyed my stay and want to emphasize the great staff for sure.

  • Historical Hotel in Berkeley

    by 48Rusty on 2019-05-04 07:23 pm

    Here for a wedding. Room has no a/c, no TV, no hot water for shower, plug in hand basin not working
    No safety on windows we were on the 6th floor and a sheer drop down. Thank goodness no children
    Bed size not even a queen - a double bed
    I would not recommend this hotel for guests who are coming to a wedding
    Would rather stay in a hotel with amenities and cab here to attend the wedding
    Bringing luggage in we had to use the maintenance entrance and walk through the laundry and the garbage- quite disgusting. No wheelchair access to the front door of the hotel
    I do not believe this hotel meets the required safety codes
    Will NEVER stay here again

  • 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.
