I stayed at the Hotel Durant for a week in September. I hadn't stayed here for 20 years so it was a blast to come back. It is very centrally located next to the campus. It is easy to walk to Top Dog or many of the other choices that are close by. One can either walk to BART (a hike) or take a bus. It made it a reasonable stay when all of the hotels in SF were up over $400 due to conferences and last minute reservations. Street side is a bit loud, but that is part of being close to the campus.
