Hipmunk's most popular hotels in Rockridge
Oakland's swankiest neighborhood cozies up to Berkeley, and invites tech millionaires to come out of their Oakland Hills mansions to play. Right next to Rockridge BART, Rockridge Market Hall offers tantalizing tastes of the good life, including organic produce, locally roasted coffee and sustainable caviar. Wine bars, sidewalk cafés and boutiques line College Ave., which leads to the University of California at Berkeley campus. Beyond Claremont Ave. bistros and old-school butchers is Berkeley's Claremont Resort, a gleaming white, turreted Gold Rush mansion that's been the East Bay's toniest hotel for a century, with palm-framed views of the Bay and a state-of-the-art spa. Beyond its two main thoroughfares, Rockridge is perpetually sunny and sleepy, with 1920s-50s bungalows hiding behind teeming gardens along tree-lined lanes.
