The University Club Reviews & Ratings
We were beyond thrilled with the University Club for our May wedding. First, Jessica was just a dream to work with! Her flexibility, attention to detail, responsiveness, and performance were all exactly what you would want from a wedding coordinator. The space is just beautiful - classic and elegant – and the fact that they reserve the entire building for the day of your wedding is unheard of! We certainly took advantage of this, having the groom and groomsmen getting ready in the library, doing first look on the terrace, and taking photos in several places around the club. The food at the University Club was delicious and the fact that we could include our parents in the tasting and customize the menu/appetizer choices was just incredible. Our guests were raving about how wonderful the wedding was, and the University Club was a huge part of this! We cannot say enough about how much we loved and would recommend this venue to anyone planning a wedding!
I love it here. I have been at corporate events in the ballrooms, the maproom and the outdoor "balcony". The food is good. The av system in the ballroom is better than most on campus options. The staff is always attentive to our needs. If you need to have a shindig in Oakland or want to grab a beer the U club is a good spot. Membership may be required to access certain areas.
We came here for a wedding and honestly I would never recommend it to anyone. First it started to rain during the reception and the cushions on the seats were soaking wet and there wasn't enough chairs. They didn't have a back up plan for the rain so you either stood in the rain or stood in the hallway until the main dining room opened. Once the main dining room opened it took minimum 30-45 minutes before they opened the bar again. The server we had at our table was rude and didn't appear to know what was going on. The food was ok at best too.
Excellent location to hold/attend a conference. Food was very good and generous amounts. Need to park in a nearby parking garage.
I dined at the U Club 60 years ago as a guest of my uncle a lecturer at the school. A few years ago two summers in a row I stayed at the Hotel for the SummerCON hacker convention and, although things may have changed a bit I suspect it is the same. First, you don't need to be a member or an alumnus of anything, this is just a hotel. BUT, because it is actually a Club the rules are a bit different. The bar is intimate and staff friendly and helpful in more of a family feeling kind of way rather than the impersonal "hospitality friendly" of any decent hotel. Although this may have changed, at the front desk you will immediately see something very different - they sell cigars. Unless there was a recent change smoking is permitted. The parking area is behind the hotel. There are jazz concerts, outdoors in the right weather. The rooms are small, clean, and quiet. The WiFi was good enough that it wasn't overloaded even by a hotel full of computer hackers. This is where I would stay the next time I overnight in Pittsburgh (I only live 90 miles away.)
