I enjoyed staying at Hotel Durant in downtown Berkeley. It was located right next to campus, dorms, shops, and restaurants -- no need for car or parking. Classy decor and sweet ambience. The internet did not work throughout the entire hotel (upper floors were spotty), but they were improving the network during our stay. Bed was comfortable and it was surprisingly quiet for being downtown. I'd stay here again when visiting Cal.
