I'm a mom who came to visit the college campus with two male students. We had one night in the hotel, and one night in a dorm. The Hotel Durant staff was so wonderful, they went out of their way to help us plan our return trip to the airport, secured transportation for us, and even held our bags for... More

How great to be away from the cookie cutter chains and stay somewhere unusual! The service we received was very good; the staff always had smiles on their faces and were eager to please. Parking conveniently abuts the hotel. Parking has limited security. The room was small but adequate; the bed was very comfortable (not hotel like at all) with... More

We recently visited UCB and wanted a hotel close, comfy, clean, with great service. The Hotel Durant is a must! We are still talking about how cool it was. We had a room on the upper level where we enjoyed the "The Graduate" lounge. We loved this place!

This was my 3rd stay at the Durant. Going to school at Berkeley twice, I'd always thought the Durant would be prohibitive. It's not. Especially friendly to Cal parents. Great staff. Henry's gastropub is inviting. New, very good beds. I'll be back.

Was in Berkeley for the week end. Stayed at Hotel Durant on Durant Ave. Built in 1928 it is an old style building and a boutique hotel. The rooms are very small but done nicely and clean, bathroom is small too but upgraded plumbing helps, reminds me of the decor you would find in a W Hotel. Bed was comfortable.... More

We loved the school-themed decor: the room keys were student ID replicas, for example, and there were lots of books on shelves to read in comfortable chairs in the lobby. The room was spotless, the staff very pleasant, and the price reasonable. We were able to walk to our choice of coffee shops in the morning. UC-Berkeley is right out... More

We thought that the hotel staff was very friendly and willing to help. It was an excellent proximity to Berkeley, and it was a lovely "old world charm" hotel.

I had previouly stayed at the Hotel Durant before the renovations; what a wonderful upgrade and refreshing the renovations provided! My room was comfortable and clean; had a terrific view of the UC Campus; and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I am happy to see an older hotel be given it's due attention to preserve the architecture and... More

Confession of a picky traveler: The pleasant experience started with reservations. The staff at the hotel was very welcoming and efficient, a cut above the just merely courteous. The same can be said about the rest of the staff when I arrived at the Durant - from the parking valet to the front desk. They all gave the impression that... More

We stayed at Hotel Durant for out daughter's graduation from the University of California, Berkeley. I chose this hotel because of it's proximity to the school and because of it's newly remodeled interior and 60's student inspired theme. What I hadn't planned on was an experience that truly exceeded my expectations. The service was exceptional, the food in the hotel... More
