This hotel was a find. San Francisco hotels were too expensive due to a conference so we decided to stay in nearby Berkeley at the Shattuck. It was the right choice. Rooms were clean and modern and all of the staff very nice and helpful. Crossing the bridge into SF was a bit of a chore due to traffic. But... More

We stayed at the Hotel Shattuck 1 night after a trip to Napa. Our flight home the next afternoon was from the Oakland airport. We had never been to Berkeley before and thought we would use our short time there to explore the area vs staying at an airport hotel. We were greeted by a very cheerful and friendly doorman... More

The location of the hotel (across the street from the Downtown Berkeley BART station) makes it easy to get to, but also keeps things pretty noisy throughout most of the night. Earplugs are a must to drown out the street noise, musicians, and just general busyness of the neighborhood. That said - the hotel is beautifully decorated and the service... More

We stayed at this hotel since we had to attend a wedding nearby in Berkeley and was recommended by the bride. Check-in was swift but I could not say the same about getting to our room… the hotel is huge! There were so many rooms on a floor and we finally got to ours after making a few turns. The... More

Would have given 4or 5 stars but for this one thing- the auto light in the bathroom, coupled with a pretty but ultimately problematic glass door. See, I came here for a good night's sleep after dealing with a stressful situation with my child who's a Cal student. Hotel is lovely, staff is friendly, food is great, beds are comfy,... More

As noted this part of Berkeley near the campus is typical urban college town seedy. But the location is great. A few minutes walk to the campus, right next to the BART station make it accessible from both airports and easy ride to downtown San Francisco. Starbucks is around the corner for morning coffee. Rooms are small not European small... More

Good things first.. The location is great, 2 minutes walk from berkeley Bart station, restaurants, car rentals shopping near by. Rooms were clean, they had provided rollaway bed for the baby. There was no refrigerator or microwave in the room. When I asked the reception, that i needed one for baby's milk, they obliged and put one in our room.... More

I especially want to give big kudos and thanks to two hotel employees: 1.Chris at the front desk for making our checking in and out so easy, professional, and considerate. And 2.Paul at the front door. This is a special Guy. During the night my car, parked legally on the street, had been broken into by a thief who smashed... More

This was my second visit in the past 4 months. The hospitality at the Hotel Shattuck is outstanding. I was traveling alone on business and was nicely offered an upgrade on my room. Staff were cheerful, pleasant and helpful. I met a friend for a very late dinner in the Five restaurant. It could have been a bit quieter (the... More

Great place. Strategic position in Berkeley close to uni. In the area, definitively one of the best. Was there for business, enjoyed the stay. Rooms a bit small, very comfy bed. It helped to overcome the jet lag. Bathroom very clean and recently renovated, good soap arrangements. Staff was very professional and friendly. WiFi was included in price, bar overpriced... More
