Last week I stayed at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Berkeley. I had a five-night stay booked and had prepaid for the reservation. I had booked this hotel after initially booking elsewhere, but I wanted a true Berkeley experience and the ratings on TripAdvisor told me I should try them out. After a very rough year both personally and professionally,... More

From the moment my wife and I entered The Shattuck and saw the inlaid tiled floor with a peace sign, we had the inkling we were in the right place. The check- in was quick and informal, and even though we arrived before noon, we were given our room, not luxurious but comfortable. The Shattuck is two blocks from town... More

My family has stayed at this hotel in downtown Berkeley twice in the past three months, visiting UC Berkeley. It is in a perfect location for that purpose, only a few blocks away from campus and a block from the downtown Berkeley BART station. It is an older property but appears fairly well maintained. Another reviewer described the hotel as... More

This was our first visit to Berkeley and visiting relatives in this town and in San Francisco. The hotel takes up a city block and the rooms are very nice and clean and rooms fairly quiet from the outside noise. We stayed on the Allston Way side, third floor, overlooking the main door. The staff is very nice and friendly... More

My fiance, I mean husband! and I decided to skip the honeymoon and stay local. We picked Hotel Shattuck to stay at for our wedding night, and if even half of our married life decisions turn out as well as this one, we're going to have a very long and happy marriage. We got the date night package and were... More

This was my second stay, and I still enjoyed the hotel. The front-desk and bar employees are young and really pleasant, the place is very clean, and the location is terrific. One comment: last time, I had stayed in a room on the Shattuck Avenue side, and I thought it was a bit noisy. So, I asked for a room... More

We recently went to California for college visits and decided to stay at Hotel Shattuck Plaza while at Berkeley. The décor was very nice and the employees were very helpful. I have to agree that the smell was not that good in the hotel but other than that we had a pleasant stay. The staff apparently don't change the water... More

Decor is modern and quite nice, room was small but clean and well appointed, but... The lobby smells terrible! Both days I was there, the whole lobby and bar/restaurant had that gross dirty-restaurant bleach smell, bringing back memories of my crappy high school fast-food jobs. They really need to pick a different cleaning product or at least go get a... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a great location...right next to the BART station and the campus. The rooms are on the small side, but you kind of expect that from a hotel of this age and central location. The staff were always friendly and efficient to me and the rooms were well maintained. Housekeeping came by extremely late for... More

Stayed for a 3 day business meeting in the hotel. It is a lovely historical building with beautiful architecture. The room was comfortable and clean. Had a few special requests that were addressed immediately and later followed up to confirm were completed. The food was excellent both in the restaurant and catered for the meeting. From housekeeping to maintenance to... More
