Such a nice place to stay in Berkeley. Walk to the campus, Telegraph Street, Bart, short drive to other places we wanted to go in East Bay. We were fortunate to find street parking overnight & Sunday, didn't need the garage. Down side - our room on back side next to elevator. But surprisingly little noise from it. More noise from fans, etc. outside our window on the adjacent roof, so we kept our room fan going to try to cover that. We've also stayed on the street side, a little noisy from the street, so just a fact of life in a city hotel that there's some noise. Think I prefer the street side, fun to watch the Berkeley scene.
As to the complaints by some, we didn't mind the glass bathroom door, more opaque than clear. Yes, I guess if you need the light at night that's a problem, but that's what the night light's for. And a coffee maker, where are they going to find room for that? Room is small, but quite efficient use of space.
All said, we'll be back, maybe next month, take Bart over to a Giants game.
