Fodor's Expert Review Berkeley City Club

2315 Durant Ave., Berkeley, California, 94704, USA Fodor's Choice

Moorish design and Gothic architecture meet modern amenities at this historic locale steps from campus, arts, and eateries. The Berkeley Woman's City Club opened its doors in 1930, designed by one of the university's first woman civil engineers, Julia Morgan. Now a national landmark, her "little castle" features 38 time-honored rooms, a social club, fine dining among lush interior courtyards, a vintage-tiled indoor swimming pool, and a performing arts theater.
