The Hotel Shattuck Plaza is an OUTSTANDING and fab place to stay for any type of travel.

I travel quite a bit for business and pleasure, this was perhaps the best hotel experience in years. The staff was excellent, they went above and beyond in every aspect. The location was perfect, in the heart of Berkeley, walk to everything. Bart is across the street, easy trip into San Francisco and the airport. (My trip was one day... More

Outstanding Hotel and Restaurant in Heart of Berkeley. Everything was pretty much perfect. Nice rooms (even though its old hotel building), beds great, staff friendly and helpful. Location is ideal: next to BART and bus stops; I did my visit with no car - in fact, you get around faster without one. Restaurant "5" was excellent -- i had venison... More

My wife and I were in town for a somewhat somber family occasion, and somebody recommended the Shattuck as a place to stay. It turned out to be an excellent choice. First of all for us coming from NYC (via SFO), it was incomparably convenient to be able to simply get on BART at the airport and be delivered swiftly... More

Second time for a three day trip, last 3 years ago. You can fix a lot, but not the location, hence an average rather than two stars I would have given otherwise. Probably still best choice in central Berkeley, period. My experience: Arrival too early (noon), check in is at three. I was 'fast-tracked' and had to ask again after... More

Dear bjoem_rob, Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor - Although not a perfect score, I truly appreciate your feedback. Check in time is at 3pm; however our team does their best to ensure early arrival (especially if we are told in advance you are arriving early). In regards to the smell, we are a non-smoking property and... More

Our son Ryan and his fiance Nicole had their wedding ceremony and reception at the hotel. The reservation department upgraded our room as the groom's parents. The staff were all very friendly. The reception ran smoothly and the food and service were superb. It was a beautiful wedding with all the guests happy and had a great time. Thank you... More

We stayed at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza for three days and appreciated its central location, friendly staff, gorgeous old architecture, lobby bar, and comfortable room. I loved the hallways with the unique wallpaper in a red, white, and gray color scheme. We like to take the stairs so appreciated the window-lit, open stairway. The room was nicely decorated with high... More

Room was fine. Service generally professional. However, a club sandwich ordered for room service at 3 in the afternoon shouldn't take one hour and, when it comes, should be more than toasted bread, overcooked bacon, limp lettuce and an out of season tomato slice. Flavorless. Morning breakfast in their signature restaurant -- ordered a lackluster eggs benedict; this is a... More

It you want a hotel in downtown Berkeley (and understand that you will have a very urban experience with a cast of colorful characters!) this is the place to be. Great location next to the BART station with lots of nearby shopping and restaurants. Hotel lobby, bar and restaurant are very attractive with very helpful service. We had a corner... More

I was there for a whole week and although, believe me, I tried I could not find anything even slightly wrong with the hotel. Really friendly staff, nice rooms and excellent location. I Highly recommend it.
