I just got back from a relaxing weekend across the Bay. I kicked on over to Berkeley to get away from city & mom life. Of course I missed the boy & husband terribly, but it was nice to get a few things done and attempt to catch up on sleep.
Hotel Durant is a great little find in downtown and right next to the UC Berkeley campus. The collegiate theme was perfect. Tailored and crisp without being obnoxious. Student id cards were hotel key cards and a vocab shower curtain were two of my favorite details in the academic accommodations.
Unfortunately, it was wildly hot this weekend and the hotel doesn't have a/c. I was able to make do with the windows and ceiling fan.
