Positive Reviews

Visitors love the hotel's location.

Hotel Durant is just a few steps from the UC Berkeley campus and has long been a mainstay for people coming to catch a game or alumni reuniting for a party. It is also only a short walk from the downtown area, making it a staple for all kinds of travelers visiting Berkeley.

Interactions with staff are generally great.

Many of the people who book a room at this hotel forget they are staying away from home thanks to the great atmosphere found on the property. A large part of this is due to the friendly staff who are always willing to help guests in any way they can.

Historic building has lots of character.

With more than 80 years of history to it, the Hotel Durant has a lot of charm built into its foundation. The beautiful architecture of the building is popular with travelers of all kinds including history buffs looking for a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

Negative Reviews

Guestrooms are on the small side.

Most guests have a hard time moving around the private rooms at this hotel. The small rooms leave many people feeling cramped, and aren't recommended for long stays in the area for a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

On-site dining is limited.

Henry's Restaurant, the on-site place to grab a bite at this hotel, is okay but generally not a highlight for guests. The standard quality of food and options make this a better place for enjoying some drinks rather than having a full meal.

Parking can be a challenge.

One frustration guests often have at the Hotel Durant is with the parking situation. There is very limited public parking around the hotel, and parking on-site means relying on a costly valet service.
