I stayed at the Hotel Durant for three nights in January 2013. The hotel, while not fancy is clean and very well situated to the UC Berkeley campus. The hotel does show its age. The front desk staff were friendly and very helpful. The bathroom, while clean, has a very small sink and VERY little area for placing shaving and other supplies in the morning. The bar and restaurant were excellent. Large, well light and the food was good. We sat in the bar and were able to watch the Ravens beat the Patriots. While we were disappointed, the well stocked bar (some very good wine) helped us through our grief.
