We have stayed in this hotel several times before when our daughter went to UC Berkeley. 2 years later when we had the opportunity to do something in Berkeley, not far from the campus we jumped at Hotel Durant. Little did we know that it was "Game Day" but the Hotel staff was very good about letting us know. We had made the reservation on line and they emailed us right away, explaining the situation of the parking and the fact that there would be events going on there on Saturday. We arrived right when the game was over and we were still greeted warmly and nicely. If I was to do it over, I might not stay there on game day but it all worked out fine.
