Hotel guest amenities

Many love staying in one of our 36 guestrooms for the cozy beds and great location.

Did you know that there are many more benefits to being our guest?

Complimentary coffee, tea & filtered water 

Stop by the Coffee Corner on the First Floor to treat yourself to an energizing cup of coffee, a soothing afternoon tea or a nice cup of water.

A swim in our indoor, heated pool

Many desire to swim in the waters of our mosaic-tiled Julia Morgan pool, but it is a benefit reserved for our Club Members and hotel guests.  Enjoy a swim anytime from 5am – 10pm, excluding Wednesday evenings from 7pm – 10pm when it is closed for cleaning.

Join us daily from 7am – 10am at Julia’s on the Second Floor for an energizing breakfast.

Quiet time in beautiful spaces


Take in the beauty of our Courtyards, the coziness of our Members Lounge or watch people sashay by as you take in the Lobby.

Lounge Hours


Need to unwind after a busy day or just love a good glass of wine?  Join us in the Julia Morgan Room for a drink from 4:30pm – 8pm.



For the foodies and fine dining lovers, we have just the place (and it’s conveniently located on the Second Floor).  A hidden gem just waiting to be enjoyed, Chef Alaun Grimaud and his Team feature stunning food options.

Check out our menus here.  You are in for a real treat!

Feel free to book your hotel stay and treat yourself to some of these amenities.

Berkeley Restaurant Week

Kicking off tomorrow, 1.21.16, and running through 1.31.16, is Restaurant Week.

We love the new faces visiting the Club and decadent dining at Julia’s.  Its a win-win for all.

Many describe Julia’s as hidden gem, even more so now, as Chef Alaun has made a return.


For Lunch, Prix Fixe menus are $20 per person, excluding beverages, tax & gratuity.

Hello there, risotto.


For Dinner, Prix Fixe menus are $35 per person, excluding beverages, tax & gratuity.

Both meals include two starter choices, three main course choices and three dessert choices.

Oh, yes, we mentioned dessert.

On both the Prix Fixe Lunch & Dinner menus is the chocolate ganache bar.


So, make a reservation to come check out another part of the BCC to fall in love with.

A sincere thank you to Anna Wu Photography for the stunning images.


Aquatics Exercise

Starting back up at the Club this week are Aquatics Exercise classes.

We would love to introduce you to Celia Ihne, the class instructor.


Celia has been teaching a variety of water exercise classes since 1990.

She found aquatic exercise to be very effective for herself, living with both arthritis and skeletal issues, and felt she could help others, although you don’t need to have an injury to benefit from these classes, which are great for all ages and fitness levels.

Aquatics5 - David Bunnell

A warm up begins in the shallow end, then we move to into greater depths for strength and toning, then finish things up with stretching.

Celia has become certified by The YMCA, The Arthritis Foundation, The MS Society and by ACE as a personal trainer.

Aquatics - David Bunnell

Her greatest reward is seeing growth, health benefits and lots of smiles from happy participants!

Aquatics3 - David Bunnell

Classes start tomorrow, January 13, 2016 and continue every Wednesday from 4pm – 5pm.

Members enjoy the classes for $10/each and non-members are $15.  Cash/checks are requested.

Series purchases of (10) classes are also available.

Reach out to Celia Ihne at to further inquiries or sign up.




Happy 2016!

We hope your year is off to a great start!

Today, we want to share some images that make us happy, because a dose of beautiful pictures brings joy – and who couldn’t use more of that as we move into a new year?

This is a favorite around the Club and we are sure you agree.

Hello, pop of color!

Priceless and yes, smile-inducing.
