Get the Latest on All the Renovations At Our Downtown Berkeley Hotel
It is with excitement to share with you the second phase of our renovation. Our first phase included functional upgrades to our sleeping rooms and finally after 86 years, the installation of Air Conditioning! The Hotel Durant will be embarking on our phase two of impressive improvements to our lobby, front desk and Henry’s Dining Room from beginning of August to September, 2014. During these enhancements, the lobby and dining room will be covered and inaccessible for a month in August. However Henry’s Bar will remain open. The Front desk will be redesigned, following the completion of the lobby and dining room, and expected to conclude at some time in September. During this time, a satellite front desk will be available for your convenience. Please pardon our dust while we strive to improve our downtown Berkeley hotel and make your stay even more pleasurable.
We would be happy to share any specifics, but at this time we are finalizing the design scope. Our goal is to have all of the visible construction in the restaurant and lobby completed within two months. We have created strategies to make sure that the hotel will continue to provide exceptional service.
We value your patronage and trust your experience will exceed your expectations!
• Time Frame? Guest rooms: Were completed in April 2014. The lobby and the Henry’s dining section will be from August to September 2014.
• Henry’s? The bar section of Henry’s will be open throughout the whole renovation period, so come on in and enjoy our daily food and drink specials!
• Air Conditioning? Yes! All of our guest rooms are fitted with customized A/C units, to help keep you cool on those rare hot Berkeley days.
• Parking? On some days during the renovation, we will have fewer parking spots available to our guests, as our normal lots will be occupied by construction equipment. Please call (510) 845-8981 to inquire about parking prior to arrival.
We will be adding photos, schedule updates, and more details as we move through the Fall. Make sure you check back often to track our progress. In the meantime, now that the Henry’s renovations are complete, scroll down to check out all the fun we’re having at our onsite Berkeley pub!
