This hotel is a fine property, particularly if you want to be within walking distance of Cal but there are some things to know. The rooms seem to have been updated recently but are already showing signs of age - in the shower/bathroom particularly. As all older (historic) properties are, the layout of rooms is quirky, but I highly recommend... More

Having never been to Berkley, I was uncertain of what to expect. This hotel's location was perfect for access to Cal, and the city itself. A Bart station is nearby, along with many options for a wide variety of food and cocktails. Parking is easy in the lot across from the Hotel, very safe. But yes, there is no valet... More

My experience at Hotel Shattuck Plaza was really quite pleasant. The hotel is located in downtown Berkeley, within walking distance to the University. As I was there for work, this proved to be very convenient. It is near a pharmacy and near to the BART station. The lobby is nice with a small bar, restaurant so you do see people... More

Hotel Shattuck is located a perfect distance from everything in Berkeley. It sits very near that wonderful UC Campus. Walkable to almost everything and a lovely spot to stay. Old hotel that is renovated.

First, Hotel Shattuck is conveniently located across from the Downtown Berkley BART stop - so if the BART is working well, you're no more than 45 minutes from the airport, and about a 15 minute drive into Oakland. The front desk staff is always very friendly - appreciated Nathan's helpfulness during my check in the other week, as I arrived... More

Hotel Shattuck is in a perfect location to experience downtown Berkeley. I loved having the ability to walk to local restaurants and soak in the cool city vibe. My trip was marred by a rude dismissive employee at the registration desk on both check-in and check out (same person, both times.. her name started with a "Y" ...luckily I didn't... More

Hi: This is hands down, the best hotel I have stayed at in years. The staff bends over backwards to make your stay wonderful! It was a birthday weekend for me and I couldn't believe all the things the hotel did to make it a memorable occasion. Their onsite restaurant, Five is absolutely incredible.

The web site doesn't do this hotel justice. Apart from a superb location in the middle of downtown Berkeley, it is only a few steps away from the BART. The rooms are smallish but well laid out and comfortable. We slept well after 32 hours travel. The bar is lovely, good wines, beer and great cocktails at a very reasonable... More

Lovely sunny rooms with views towards the bay. Very well furnished and clean. Didn't have breakfast as seemed pricey. Complimentary membership of the local YMCA gym less than a block away was a real bonus. Would certainly return.
