Fodor's Review

A mainstay of parents visiting their children at U.C. Berkeley, this boutique hotel is also a good option for those who want to be a short walk from Telegraph Avenue. Recent renovations pay subtle tribute to the 1960s, with retro upholstered headboards and tie-dye curtains in guest rooms and "lava towers" in the lobby. Photos of Berkeley highlight the hotel's storied past. In the present, the Durant is eco-conscious, with cleaning done using nonchemical, all-natural products. Service is friendly but can be amateurish. Prices take a huge jump at graduation and when there's a football game or other major university event.
