Great hotel right in downtown Berkeley. Location was excellent for walking around Berkeley and U.C. Also very close to the BART, if you're looking to visit San Francisco as well. Staff was friendly and helpful, and the rooms were comfortable and clean. I loved the character of the hotel and would definitely recommend this to friends and family.

We needed a hotel near UC Berkeley and a place where pets were allowed. The Hotel Durant was the perfect choice. Only a block away from the University. Very clean and service is exceptional. As it is an old building, the walls are too thin (you can listen the neighbors pretty easily) and the floors crack a little bit. Some... More

This was the best surprise I have had, when it comes to hotels, I think ever. One thing is pictures, another is reality. This was even better than the pictures. I loved the humour in the new design. Everywhere I looked it put a smile on my face. On top of that, it was very comfortable. I loved it, and... More

At The Durant the doors swing open and immediately your shoulders go down and you'll be in your room shortly because the people at the reception desk know you're tired and hungry and you just want to relax and they will help you do just that. I loved our room and all the great design touches. Especially the poster from... More

My elderly mother and I stayed one night at the hotel. I grew up in Berkeley but have lived away for some years. The hotel was the perfect location to visit favorite restaurants and bakeries on College Ave, the famous Top Dog hotdog stand, and go for nostalgic walks on the Berkeley campus I enjoyed so much as a child....

Great hotel. Clean, nice, friendly staff. Cool amenities like dictionary shower curtain, nude streakers running on ucb campus, and "bong" lamps. Small rooms, reasonably priced, great stay! Loved the free internet and printing too! I would recommend staying at this hotel, oh and did I mention ideal ucb campus location?

The Hotel Durant was a very charming, cute hotel in Berkeley. We were there for a wedding and it was centrally located - very close to the campus, too. It was very clean and very nice. My only complaints or warnings would be that the walls are very thin and if you end up next to someone loud you're going... More

We stayed the Hotel Durant for 5 nights in march 2009 with my family and my wife's parents including my 3 years old daughter. The persons at front desk was very friendly and cheerful, so I recalled the pleasant memories when i have lived in Berkeley 10 years ago. From the 2nd night, my daughter had high fever, so we...

If, like me, you appreciate your architecture old and somewhat grand then the Hotel Durant will please you. The hotel is beautifully appointed but comfortable and makes you feel at ease immediately upon entering. The rooms are conveniently updated for the modern traveler but retain many of the wonderful elements of the original structure. My experience with the staff was... More

We traveled to Berkeley with a small child for a family event and were looking for a safe, clean and decent place in town, so we could walk places. This hotel was a good value and exceeded our expectations. I guess it has been recently renovated; we loved everything about it. The building is old and has character, and the... More
