We dropped our son off to Cal for the beginning of his sophomore year. We enjoy staying at Hotel Shattuck because of the staff and their great service, cleanliness and it's a close location to Cal. Public parking is just across the street only steps from the hotel's front door. It makes life easier to walk to campus on big... More

This hotel is a perfect location in Berkeley, right by the BART for quick access to San Francisco and near UC Berkeley. The rooms are very nice and comfortable, but some of the double rooms are much larger than others. The staff was very nice, but not well trained or experienced. They struggled with directions and recommendations. There was no... More

We stayed here as an alternative to the very expensive SFO 4 star hotels. Wonderful location in Downtown Berkeley, a five minute walk to the UC campus, and just across the street from BART. Great room (517), very quiet. Best ever king bed with down pillows. Parking at nearby lot only $30.00 total for two days. Staff more than helpful.... More

Dear kent f, It's nice to know that we were able to provide you with a compelling experience that you are accustomed to in SF and provide value so you can enjoy visiting your favorite restaurants. From the review, I believe you parked over a weekend and wish to manage expectations that weekday parking runs a bit more. Thank you... More

My granddaughter (26 yrs old) and I stayed for 3 nights and her comment: "How quaint!". We were both impressed by the service, décor and location.

Dear Pat T, I'm so thrilled to learn that you and your Granddaughter had such a great stay. Most importantly of your comments is about the service our team provided.

Ideally located across the street from a BART station, across another street from the Berkeley campus and easy walking to several theaters, museums, and many, many restaurants for all price ranges. My modest room (#515) was ready early, well-appointed, and had wonderful views of the City, the Bay, and the Golden Gate Bridge. The front desk staff was efficient and... More

Dear MinersDaughter2014, We love how guests connect to our welcome "peace symbol" in the lobby and always appreciate knowing that our team was friendly, knowledgeable, and had a can-do attitude. We are working to find a different design solution for rooms with smaller counter space as it seems as the shelves we've added may not be sufficient. We look forward... More

A year ago I stayed at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza for the first time and my experience then was not the best, as there were a few service lapses.

This hotel is a fantastic place to stay in the middle of Berkeley. The BART stops just across the street. The hotel has a very nice restaurant and bar. The Happy Hour is terrific and occasionally has musical groups playing in the evening. The rooms are great. Our room had a distant view of San Francisco and the Bay. We... More

I was awakened at 6 am by what sounded like cattle running -- nonstop! After being totally baffled, I realized my room was next to the gym and the sound was someone pounding on the treadmill.

As a refugee from a major chain in Emeryville, the staff welcomed me for my five-night stay at 9:00 AM with a latte, luggage storage, and the assignment of an excellent room. Each evening, the concierge provided thoughtful and accurate dinner recommendations.
