Graduate Berkeley

This hotel has been hand-picked by the StayBoutique team and verified as an authentic boutique hotel

Location

2600 Durant Ave, Berkeley, CA 94704

Graduate Berkeley is a five-minute walk to campus at the corner of the city stir and game day buzz. We are steps from Telegraph Avenue 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. Collegiate plaids mix with a faraway but familiar feel, like a home away from home.

Thousands of “Nat Geo” magazines journey across the front desk walls dressed in California gold. Curl up with a book amidst Ikat patterned easy chairs and printed velvet sofas in deep blues and burgundy with a vintage vibe. Sweeping wood floors are layered with hand-woven rugs from India, while graphic street art mixes with chinoiserie accessories offset by original mill work and moldings.

Gather some Golden Bears for a post game bite at Henry’s or convene at a communal wood table; it’s the perfect hub for conversation, camaraderie and robust exchange of ideas and intellect.

So whether you’re in town for a meeting or meet up, cheering along with Oski on The Hill or enjoying a show at The Greek, we’re here to make it memorable. Our warm, friendly and whip smart staff (#humblebrag) can guide you in and around Berkeley – so that you feel like a local, at home again even if it’s your first time in town.
