Not many choices in Berkeley - which is probably why this hotel is rated #1. We thought it would be much better given the rating. The room was fine but the staff somewhat indifferent. What we found most troublesome was parking - we had to use the lot across the street and when we went in and out several times...

Dear Cherrie N, Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor - I am very sorry about the challenges you experienced with parking, unfortunately, with our hotel being 100+ years old, a parking lot was not built in the original construction; however we are fortunate to have two parking options (one directly next to the hotel and one right...

Stayed here for a week and within a few hours of arriving felt completely at home. Staff at check in were friendly and very kind, we had come a long way and were a bit disorientated. Room on the 4th floor looking out towards San Francisco. Some noise from air-conditioning units in the roof below us but only when we...

The hotel is very whimsical. It definitely leaves an impression (especially if you are used to staying at the standard corporate chains). Service was excellent, as well as the location (2 min walk from BART, Walgreen's right across the street). If you come to Berkeley, this is definitely a top place to stay. It gets a 4 star rating from...

If you can afford to you should stay here next time you visit Berkeley. We had a suite (#310) which was definitely the way to go. #310 has windows on two sides which is a bonus as well. We saw some of the rooms and they are a bit on the small side. The service was excellent. All of the...

I stayed at the hotel for a friend's wedding and was amazed at how it was the perfect setting for the wedding and reception, as well as a great location if you -- like me -- didn't need to be involved beforehand.

I needed to be in San Francisco for a week long conference, but by the time I got around to booking the primary (read less expensive) hotels were all full.

The location can't be beat for Berkeley. Homeless people everywhere but that isn't their fault - that is just the city. The lobby was beautiful and brunch was delicious. The room was very spacious and the bed very comfortable. I'll be staying here again!

This is a lovely hotel and a great place to stay when visiting UC Berkeley - the location cannot be beat, the rooms (while on the smaller side) are clean and well appointed and the staff is friendly and helpful.
