    Superb

    Convenient for daughter's Berkeley graduation...they even emailed ahead of time, and asked for any graduate's photos, major, and our brief comment, then made a collage in the lobby. Very nice touch!

    Fantastic location close to UC Berkeley campus and Telegraph Avenue. Rooms are nice, and room service is tasty.

    Very good

    The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly. The dining was fair.

    It just so happend that my room was located next to the hotel (staff?) bathroom. People getting in and out and it was a bit noisy and annoyance. The pillows were too soft.

    Very nice hotel in the midst of the UC Berkeley student experience.

    Convenience to UC Campus

    Price was steep -- $300/night -- for the quality of the room, but it was graduation weekend. Still, the premium even for graduation weekend seemed a bit high.

    Superb

    Henry's is a great cafe! It was just the sunny morning experience we needed after lengthy travel the night before. The porters/bell staff were wonderfully helpful and attentive. Hotel Durant was a perfect location for our visit to the uc Berkeley campus!

    The bed was a little small. The handheld European shower head was lovely, but it would be nice if there were a notch higher up for when you want to bask under the spray without holding the shower head in your hand!

    Superb

    Excellent, accommodating staff and service. Super friendly and personal.

    Charming, but older victorian...therefore no central air conditioning..not a problem in winter..but even in April we had to leave window open the whole time with fans going...and this is in 60 degree weather in Berkeley Ca. I would only stay here again during winter.

    Very good

    Located just 3 minutes walk from the campus. The room was well-equipped with luxurious furniture. The staffs were really helpful.

    A bit far from the train station.

    Exceptional

    Lovely warm staff greeting us at front desk. Loved the "updated" funky 60's decor.

    The size of bathroom sink. It's ridiculously small. I should have packed a tupperware bowl.

    Very good

    the staff is warm and helpful, the cleaning is impeccabel and rooms are confortable and in good state. If lucky, you might get the view over the bay, san francisco and golden gate.

    Fabulous

    It was designed like a college dorm room. It was well done with photos of past students from other decades.

    There was no air conditioning. Our room was stuffy. There was a ceiling fan though, and once we turned it on it took about an hour to cool down and freshen the air. After that it was fine.

    Exceptional

    We liked the location close to the campus and found the hotel clean and comfortable.

    People were very loud outside on the street during the night but fortunately not for a long time.

    Fabulous

    The staff was very nice and the queen bed was comfortable.

    It smelled a little and the pull out sofa bed was unusable. It was like sleeping on bedsprings.

    Fabulous

    Room was nicely furnished and had an excellent view on the bay and San Francisco.

    Very good

    Henry's is great for breakfast and we liked the bar for watching games. Location is great for visiting the University.

    We booked a king bed and they did not have one available. Also, the front desk was hard to reach and slow to call for a taxi. Because the hotel is off the beaten path, it was hard to get taxi service sometimes.
