I traveled to Berkeley for an engineering workshop at the University of California. The location of the Hotel Durant was absolutely perfect for this trip because it is literally a block from campus. The hotel is located in downtown Berkeley, within walking distance of dozens of restaurants, shops, and entertainment (including several local cinemas). The hotel is also located within... More

My daughter and I stayed at the hotel over the Martin Luther King weekend while she was interviewing at Berkeley. The proximity to campus made it a great choice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Their recommendations for a place to get coffee and ice cream were spot on. Our dinner in the hotel restaurant was delicious. Try to... More

We had a good stay at the hotel over new year 2008/09 - the room was large enough for the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 children), had a large walk in wardrobe where we could store suitcases so they were out of the way, and it was very clean. The hotel was in a perfect location for visiting... More

Staff were friendly and courteous. The decor in the rooms is terrific... the lamp bongs, old streaker photos, and SAT vocab on the shower curtain were a great addition. Also, don't forget to check out the men's urinal in the lobby near the elevators... you'll love it if you're a berkeley fan (or stanford... and you have a sense of... More

We spent a pleasant weekend at the Berkeley Durant Hotel in January 2009. The staff was very friendly, the room was comfortable and smartly decorated, and the flat screen TV, free WiFi and iPod sound dock came in very handy. The lobby was comfortable for an early morning read of the local paper, and the breakfast served to us at... More

I wanted to spend my New Year's weekend somewhere close enough to SF but with the feeling of going somewhere else, so I decided to stay at the Durant Hotel in beautiful Berkeley! The location can't be better. Right next to the Campus entrance and Telegraph St. Surrounded by beautiful seniority houses and buildings, Durant is one of them. The... More
