Stayed here for 9 nights. The staff were really friendly and the room is of good size and clean room! Recommend this hotel for travellers to Berkeley. If you are happy to commute for half an hour into San Francisco CBD, this will be one of your options too.

Our visit got off to a good start with a hyper-enthusiastic greeting, but then took a nose-dive when we tried having lunch at the restaurant after a long early-morning meal-free flight from the East Coast. "I'm sorry, we stop serving lunch at 1:30," was the response from the hostess. Really? ... they stop serving lunch at 1:30pm? So we ventured... More

Dear Ingmar53, Thank you for your recent review on Trip Advisor - I appreciate the comments provided. Our hotel is 100 years old, so some of the rooms are a bit limited on space, which you find in most historical landmarks and within a city such as Berkeley. Should you choose to stay with us again, please feel free to... More

We love this hotel and the great location. Our daughter goes to UC Berkeley and we stay here when we visit her a few times a year.

We were staying at the DoubleTree Marina but the room was quite noisy (boat noises, thin walls, windows which did not seal well). And we are very light sleepers. So we called Shattuck and the person we spoke to said he could help us find a quiet room. When we went there to check-in the front desk staff was very... More

Another wonderful stay at Hotel Shattuck Plaza. Have stayed several times and had deluxe rooms, superior rooms and a junior suite. Have also stayed on floors 2, 3 and 5. All (the combination of rooms and floors) have worked out very well. Never too much noise or too far to walk. Five is a top notch restaurant and we had... More

We spend last Thanksgiving travelling the Bay Area, including Napa, Berkeley and San Francisco down town, taking our daughter on a college tour. Out of 3 hotels we stayed, Shattuck Plaza was the best and most memorable overall. It is a boutique hotel with nicely and tastefully decorated interior. We stayed in the suite, which was very spacious, granted that... More

Stayed here back towards the end of February and liked the location of the hotel and how the hotel was nicely decorated and updated. The room was clean and in good shape. We stayed in their standard Deluxe King Bedroom and the room was very spacious, but the bathroom was tiny! There was no counter space and the shower was... More

For $250 we had a great location. Other than that we stayed in room 318 with a factory like building on either side of the windows, which was a disappointment. Very ugly to look at. They had us wait downstairs to inspect the room and then told us it was ready five minutes later, but when we arrived at the... More
