Graduate Berkeley is a five-minute walk to campus at the corner of the city stir and game day buzz. We are steps from both Shattuck & Telegraph Avenues shops and stops. A virtual post card from its counter culture past, Graduate Berkeley resides in the historically renovated Hotel Durant, making it the most storied place around. The lobby invites nods to the arts and academia, the well-traveled local and Berkeley’s Bohemian roots. Thousands of National Geographic magazines journey across the front desk wall dressed in California gold. Curl up with a book amidst graphic street art mixed with chinoiserie accessories offset by original moldings. Gather some Golden Bears for a pre-show cocktail or post game bite in Henry’s, our Gastro Pub. It is the perfect hub for conversation, camaraderie and robust exchange of ideas and intellect. Our 144 newly renovated guest rooms boast chic bohemian décor fully embracing the zeitgeist of Berkeley and its residents. Some rooms even have gorgeous views of the bay or the famous Campanile, Sather Tower, the third largest bell clock tower in the world. Cuisine in Berkeley ranges from epicurean dreams, such as Chef Alice Water’s Chez Panisse to more common college fair. With a multicultural community, expect many multicultural options all easily walkable to and from our front door. With a walk score of 96, we are in the highest rated neighborhood in the East Bay for ease of movement on foot or take one of our 6 courtesy bikes.
