This is a great loaction hotel. The BART, the local train to San Fransisco area is right across the road. There are very good eating places/restuarants all around the hotel including vegitarian options in chinese and Indian cuisine. The staff and rooms are very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is very committed to energy efficiency and sustainability - incorporating many of these practices into their rooms. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was very comfortable and clean. Their location is fantastic - being right across the street from a BART... More

Of all the hotels in the Berkeley area that we've stayed at, this one was the best. The location was perfect... right in the middle of everything we needed, and about a block from the campus. The staff was friendly and professional, our room exceeded our expectations (space, layout, amenities, and cleanliness), and the bathroom was updated with beautiful marble... More

Ahhhhh! We had just spent 2 weeks traveling for both work and pleasure. Some hotels were better than others, a lot better. This was the best! The lobby is pure eye candy in design with a playful use of color (see pictures). We got upgraded to the beautiful Presidential Suite. Pure heaven. The bed was bliss. The hotel staff were... More

The staff is amazing! The room was really nice....our bed could have been a bit more comfortable though. Our biggest complaint, was the homeless below our window all night yelling, fighting, laughing, etc. We didn't get much sleep. Our (older) kids were in a different area and it was nice and quiet. The location is perfect. Park your car once... More

Everything is perfect, the marble foyer with peace sign, the bellmen, the location. You can read a copy of Olivia while gazing out onto Shattuck. Or you can enjoy ice cream cones at the bar in true Eloise style. This is my kind of place.

We've stayed at the Shattuck Plaza many times. Very comfortable hotel with super beds. We like the suites in particular as they have a nice bedroom and sitting room. The decor is a bit wild with lost of bright colors. The bar is nice and we've had great breakfasts at Five.

Boutique like hotel with friendly staff! Enjoyed staying here. Felt at ease, the bar was lively, nice breakfast selection and comfortable rooms. Right next to the Bart which takes you to SAn Francisco in 30 minutes and right in downtown Berkeley.
