This 1910 hotel has been refurbished from top to bottom, making it a wonderful choice for a stay in the East Bay. Located a block from the Downtown Berkeley BART station, it's @a 15 minute stroll to Chez Panisse along Shattuck Avenue, with its many unique shops and eateries. Also two blocks from the Berkeley Repertory Theatre and the famous... More

This was my first stay at the Shattuck Plaza as I needed a place close to family in Berkeley. The hotel is in the downtown area but my room, being on the fifth floor (room 552) was quiet and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and professional and the room and clean and contemporary. I would recommend the hotel and... More

I've stayed at the Hotel Shattuck so many times I can no longer count them. The staff is wonderful, the rooms are unique and comfortable, and the amenities fit my needs. If there is something special I want, all I have to do is request it, and the item or items will be in my room before I arrive. I... More

The hotel is nicely located in the heart of Berkeley. It is very convenient for people doing work or visiting the university. The rooms are kind of small (i expected larger rooms with more things inside). There was no mini-bar so I had to order everything. Also the closet was really small and I could not find space to store... More

I enjoyed a wonderful one week stay at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza. The location, near a bart station and walkable to UC Berkeley, the Berkeley Library, the YMCA, numerous movie theatres and countless restaurants, was perfect. I was even easily able to park my son's car, when I was using it, in a public lot directly across the street! Staff... More

Very near the Berkeley BART stop. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is an old style hotel that has been modernized. There were some unexpected items, such as the lack of dressers in the rooms and the very slippery bathtub and the fitness room that was not open prior to 7 AM. Also, some rooms are shockingly small. The staff... More

My wife and I loved the old feel and styling of the hotel but really enjoyed the up to date amenities of our room. The room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. The bathroom was beautiful. The location was perfect for my meeting on the Berkeley campus. A BART stop was barely half a block away.
