- The Center Club has a remarkable view of Baltimore harbor. The service is first class, the menu is large and the food is delicious. You couldn't have a better dining experience or view to enjoy. anywhere else. Parking is free for guests to the club, under the building off Charles Street. The elevator in the parking lot takes you right to the Club at the top floor. Look for the "Center Club" parking area in the garage.
- My wife and I had a wonderful evening at the Center Club. The view of Baltimore's Inner Harbor along with Camden Yards from the restaurant and bar is worth the visit. The staff made the evening very enjoyable as we celebrated our anniversary. They treated us as I am sure they treat their members with class in a very well appointed facility. A visit is very worth your time.

- My wife and I found the Berkeley City Club to be and unique and wonderful experience during a recent three night stay. It is an elegant 1920's vintage hotel near the UC campus, and was designed by Julia Morgan, the architect for the Heast Castle. It is called the "little castle", and you will see why--, cement arches among other castle qualities. The hotel has many sumptuous rooms on the first and second floor for lounging, including a logia alongside a garden and courtyard, and huge library with concert grand piano--I played that instrument as well as other pianos in the hotel at will. Our room was very small but well appointed, on the 6th floor, which is the top, with a magnificent view of the bay and San Francisco. There was no T.V., they say to conform to the era--it was not missed. The room had a large- walk in closet that easily accomodated two suitcases. There is a common refrigerator and microwave on the first floor. The dining room was wonderful with great food and service. The room comes with a complimentary well stocked continental breakfast. We even saw a play there in a very intimate setting with only 70 in the audience. The hotel has a beautiful indoor pool similar to that in Heast Castle. The reciprocal club rates were comparable to MMC, and we found the staff tp be very personable and courteous. One caveat--constructiion is going on next door as of Nov 2013, and is noisy during the week. Overall this is great little gem and just across the bay.
