Great location for visiting Berkeley but also a substantially less expensive alternative to staying in downtown San Francisco, which was my case. The downtown Berkeley BART station is 15-20 minutes walk or 5 minutes on a frequent bus. Door to door from hotel to SF building is a 40-50 minute commute. Pros: Location adjacent to campus, Telegraph St. and not...

We stayed for one night and received a complementary upgrade because we were staying only one night. We were on the 6th floor that had a nice view of campus, but unfortunately, it was pretty noisy because of street noise. I couldn't imagine staying here when college is in full swing because it's right next to frat/sorority houses. I can't...

Hotel Durant has a wonderful staff and the building and rooms have been redone beautifully. My family stayed from Wednesday thru Saturday nights. Each night the street noise got progressively worse. So, if you plan on partying until 3 am, then this is the hotel for you. Because there is no AC and the 6th floor was incredibly hot, we...

From the moment we set foot on to this property, we just fell in love... We found this place online while looking for a pet-friendly hotel near the Oakland Arena to see a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert last summer. :) It's not quite that close to the arena but within a 15-minute drive. What a treasure this place is...

All staff were very polite, helpful, warm & welcoming. I felt like royalty, and like they enjoyed serving me ! Each time we returned to the hotel we were cheerfully greeted, and immediately offered assistance. I love that we never had to wait in lines.

I've stayed at this hotel five times over the past two years, so I can confidently say that I highly recommend this boutique hotel! Wonderful and safe location, great staff, and best of all, Henry's gastropub! (Definitely recommend their martinis and angry mac & cheese, and their breakfast/brunch is also fantastic). The rooms are on the smaller side, and there...

Very awesome hotel, unique, great service. Loved it. Get a room on the Executive Level, worth the extra cost. We had the Durant Room, great view. The rooms are small, but very unique. Quiet as well. Staff was very friendly and having Henry's right there was very convenient.

This is a nice funky place - a renovation from a very old building. On the very good side: friendly staff - very helpful. Nice, fun bar. GREAT location if you are there for UC Berkeley (I was attending conference there). You don't really need a car because so much is in walking distance - including campus. They clearly spent...

The Hotel Durant is surrounded by U.C. Berkeley and near Telegraph Avenue. As a green hotel, it has no air conditioning, but rooms have ceiling fans and windows to open. I enjoyed my stay there, but was slightly annoyed by the amount of street noise (read rowdy partying at all hours of the weekend nights) that came through my open...
