About
Description
Welcome to Graduate Berkeley – where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay. Graduate Berkeley is a five-minute walk to campus at the corner of the city stir and game day buzz. We are steps from More 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 Graduate Berkeley, is a full-service, 144 room boutique hotel, inviting nods to the arts and academia, the well-traveled, and Berkeley’s Bohemian roots. Thousands of “Nat Geo” magazines journey across the front desk walls, dressing them in California gold. Gather some Golden Bears for a post-game bite at the restaurant Henry’s or convene at a communal wood table. Rooms amenities include complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi, flat screen TV, refrigerator, in-room laptop safe, triple-sheeted linens and designer bath products. Less
