Berkeley Hotels

Non-corporate, non-conformist and totally unique: Berkeley's hotels are a reflection of the city itself. No pastel bedspreads and cookie-cutter rooms here. Berkeley’s hotels make the most of the city’s history, its laid-back vibe and its off-the-grid orientation. Conveniently located but tucked away enough to feel like a respite, hotels in Berkeley play it cool while delivering gracious hospitality and top-notch amenities. After all, would you really expect to stay in a chain motel in the notoriously radical college town?

Like everything in Berkeley, hotels are centered around the university. Most of Berkeley's hotels are clustered around UC Berkeley area, making for convenient and centrally located stays. Hotel Durant, Bancroft Hotel and the Beau Sky Hotel all put you within blocks of the campus and major landmarks, as well as the bustling student life of Telegraph Avenue. Housed in historic buildings and boasting antiques and ambiance galore, these small hotels offer stays bursting with local character.

Berkeley’s Victorian-era hotels and inns retain an elegant charm while providing all the amenities a traveling professor (or student or businessperson or plain old tourist) needs. The historic landmark building that houses Berkeley City Club Hotel immerses you in the Arts & Craft style splendor of famous local architect Julia Morgan, while Downtown's Hotel Shattuck Plaza offers renovated and refined ambiance.

For those looking to discover more than just the university, several hotels help you to venture deeper into Berkeley and nestle up in one of its quaint neighborhoods. For foodies seeking an intimate and indulgent stay, the French Hotel offers a European bed and breakfast vibe in heart of the Gourmet Ghetto. On the other side of town, the towering white landmark of the Claremont Resort and Spa provides Berkeley's most elegant and historic experience, revoking the East Bay’s past as getaway destination for San Franciscan urbanites.
