Love for the BCC

Travelers far and wide are singing our praises and we are delighted to share about it.

Just last week, our 38-room hotel, event venue, private social club and fine dining restaurant got a lovely nod in the Los Angeles Times.

Praised for our great location, stunning architecture and beautiful pool, the building is a sight to see and stay in.

And, you must treat yourself to a peek or swim in our indoor heated pool, exclusive only to hotel guests and club members.

The gem of a building, constructed in just eleven months by none other than famed architect Julia Morgan and is standing stately and strong, close to ninety years later.

Treat yourself to a stay in one of our cozy guestrooms, then wander through our public spaces and cap off your stay with lunch or dinner at Julia’s.

An unforgettable time awaits you.

Green Business Program

Did you know that the Berkeley City Club has been certified by Alameda County Green Business Program since 2011?

We are honored to be part of this program and wanted to share just a few of the things we are doing to make the world a better place.

Of approximately 900 light bulbs in our building, only 6 are the old-fashioned incandescent bulbs, located in 3 large chandeliers in the Members Lounge and the other 3 large chandeliers in Julia’s; all of the rest are LED, CFL or fluorescent.

We use Green Seal certified dish washing, laundering and cleaning products.

Our Pool locker room amenities are purchased in concentrates to reduce packaging and are used in refillable dispensers.

We hope you enjoyed this post!

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.

A night at a museum

Beyond our beautiful exterior facade and sturdy concrete is a majestic piece of architecture standing strong for 85 years.

Did you know that you can step into a beautiful piece of history and spend a night here?

Yes.  Yes you can!

Floors one and two are public spaces, used primarily for events (and taking in the beauty), but floors three through six were originally residences for women of the Berkeley Women’s City Club and turned into 35 hotel rooms for you to enjoy.

For some, it was a quiet oasis, others simply relished in engaging in the life around them.

Today, thirty-five of these rooms exist just for you…

Come spend a night with us at the Berkeley City Club.  Did you know that our 35 guestrooms used to serve as residences for Berkeley Women’s City Club when the building was first constructed?

Our modest rooms are complete with plush bedding, cozy surroundings and reminiscence of things past will leave you refreshed.   A complimentary continental breakfast served Monday through Friday from 7am-9am and weekends and holidays from 8am-10am will fuel you for your day ahead.  We have a spread of fresh-squeezed juices, teas, yogurt, bagels, fruit, coffee and more.
