The Holiday Inn Express and Suites on University is exactly what you expect it to be. The Holiday Inn is an enormous company that offers a really consistent product. The folks in the lobby or friendly and welcoming. The decor is lovely with gold and white. There is a breakfast restaurant area which is the most central part of the hotel opening onto the lobby.

My room was a double queen with two queen beds in it. They told me that the difference for the king-size room is a king size bed with the couch where a second queen size bed would be. There's a workout room with a surprising number of machines in it. The office room has a desk with two chairs and access to a printer fax and scanner.

I thought the staff of this hotel was the nicest, I think they made the visit that much better by being efficient and welcoming when dealing with customers. The whole place is very spacious and has nice, updated furniture.
This Holiday Inn is in a busy area of Berkeley. I found it to be a bit overpriced for the location, but it does have all the standard perks other hotels of the same chain offer, such as an upgraded free breakfast (with biodegradable cutlery), free wi-fi and free parking.
There is a Bart (train) station within walking distance and a bus line that stops right at the corner takes you to downtown Berkeley, where you can explore all the amazing restaurants of the famous Gourmet Ghetto. Also, visit the nearby 4th Street shopping strip with all its independent and popular stores.
