A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue ReviewRead More Show Less
A Berkeley landmark with strong ties to the UC campus, this historic Spanish Mediterranean-style establishment has charmed visitors from around the world since 1928. Recently, the Joie de Vivre property underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and is now green-certified.
The hospitality begins in the high-ceilinged lobby with its unique appointments, friendly staff and comfortable seating. A blue-and-gold color scheme echoes the University’s colors and gives a respectful nod to the nearby campus.
Graduate Berkeley’s guest rooms, include upscale suites like those on the Graduate Floor, a club floor named after the famous movie. All rooms feature a 37″ flat-screen TV, high-speed wireless internet access, an honor bar, refrigerator, in-room safe and iPod docking station.
Nearby attractions like the Lawrence Hall of Science, Zellerbach Hall, the UC Art Museum across the street, Julia Morgan Center, the Botanical Gardens and, of course, dynamic Telegraph Avenue undoubtedly add to the appeal of this much-loved Berkeley hotel.
