Hotel Description
Nostalgic upscale decor and a perch that's block from campus draws guests to the Graduate Berkeley. This mid-rise boutique charmer provides Wi-Fi throughout. All 144 rooms have flat-panel cable TVs iPod docking stations ceiling fans mini-refrigerators and little touches like a free newspaper every morning. The lobby — where the walls are lined with photographs of Berkeley's most colorful characters — is a fine spot for meeting with friends or curling up with a book from the hotel's stack. The in-house restaurant serves fresh pub-inspired California cuisine and the bar offers brews and multiple sports telecasts on large-screen TVs. Road warriors are happy to know there's a business center on-site while leisure guests are happy to stroll or a jog through campus one block away. Valet parking is available and pets are welcome with restrictions. The Hotel Durant couldn't be any closer to the UC Berkeley campus: it's one block away. Telegraph Avenue also a block from the hotel is lined with shops and restaurants. The downtown BART station is less than a mile away. California Memorial Stadium is a half-mile and Tilden Park Botanical Garden is four miles. Downtown San Francisco is a 30-minute drive and Oakland International Airport is 15 miles from the property. our guests love the "proximity to campus" and "great hotel bar/restaurant" at the "comfortable quaint and nostalgic" Hotel Durant.

Very Good - 4.0 out of 5

Jim, Martinez Tue, 14 April 2015

Seemed expensive at almost $300 for a small room of OK quality. Great place to chill at the bar before the show. Easy walk to the venue. Quick exit and easy walk back to the hotel. As far as making it easy to be near the show and have food and drinks available before and after - perfect hotel. I feel like maybe $150 ish for the room would better reflect the room quality.

Liked: Short walk to the venue; great staff; nice bar.
Disliked: Overpriced and no parking.

I would not recommend, unless renovations of rooms were performed.

Liked: Wonderful location! Has character. Could be a true boutique hotel, but needs major work.
Disliked: The odor in the room penetrated my suitcase and clothing. Rooms need urgent upgrades.

Liked: This hotel was great. Perfect location. We were going to see the Deftones at the Greek theatre and the theatre was a short walk away. We had dinner at Henry's the service was excellent and the food was good. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.
Disliked: very small bathroom sink. My husband and I both got water all over the floor when we used it.

Poor - 1.0 out of 5

Tamsen Fri, 8 December 2017

Liked: The only thing I liked about this hotel was that it was close to the concert we were going to.
Disliked: The staff was not welcoming or friendly, also, when asked if they could accommodate us with a parking issue, they acted like they could care less, even after staying here for 2 nights. The room was small and smelled odd. Also loud in the mornings. BAD.

It is a nice place...

Liked: Old hotel with cute updated theme. Room was small but attractive. Luckily, did not maintain musky scent of hallway. Good fan and air conditioning options, as the room was warm on these 70 degree days. Comfortable bed/bedding.
Disliked: Cleanliness of bathroom could have been more thorough. Parking offered at $30 per day which is significantly higher than nearby public or private parking options.
