Dropped my daughter off at Cal-Berkeley for orientation. Stayed a couple of nights here. Great location just off of Bart line. Fantastic service and great food. Friendly staff. Nathan at the front desk was extremely thoughtful. Highly recomend.

The staff was very helpful and provided extra pillows for my mom. They are only a block away from the excitement of the bay. I recommend it for my friends and it is super close to Starbucks, restaurants and of course lovely Berkeley! Try the hot dog stand close by!

The Shattuck Plaza is an oasis in sea of homeless street kids and panhandlers. Berkeley is an odd mix of the richest, smartest, and most interesting people while simultaneously sustaining a large community of homeless people. The hotel does a very nice job of separating it's guests from the business of Shattuck. The entrance is right around the corner and... More

I have had the great fortune to stay here twice this year and intend to return next month while on business again. If you need to be near UC Berkeley, this snazzy boutique hotel is practically on the campus. The handsome rooms are spacious, modern, clean and really comfortable, and the staff is incredibly kind. The restaurant is pretty good,... More

We enjoy our convenient location and love reading about how guests find it central to anything that they want to do as well. We look forward to welcoming you back next month!

We went up to the Bay to see the ballet in San Francisco, for which our daughter, a graduate student in Berkeley, had obtained tickets. We wanted to stay close to where she lives and we've stayed here before with each stay being very enjoyable. The rooms are clean & fresh and have a nice level of finish & amenities...but... More

Great hotel, in the heart of Berkeley. Bart is like a block away, so a quick trip to the city if you'd like. the only downside is no parking so parking lots are pricey, but i guess that's anywhere in the SF and surrounding areas. food at their restaurant is pretty good, and i would definitely stay there again if...

Dear slvah2007, Thank you for taking the time to share with us about your experience. Parking is a challenge throughout the Bay area, which is why the proximity to BART is a real benefit to keeping costs down and leaving a smaller carbon foot print when you stay at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza. However, the lots nearby are more affordable... More

We have stayed at the Shattuck Plaza a few times now, the last visit being in May of 2015. We have stayed in both Deluxe rooms and Standard rooms - this last visit in a handicapped accessible room. Here are our general thoughts: The rooms are all comfortable, but you can have very different experiences depending on what you get.... More

We wanted to attend performances at the Freight & Storage in Berkeley and take BART to San Francisco. This hotel location was perfect for us. The Freight was about 3 blocks away and the BART stations were right outside the hotel. The hotel was immaculate, the staff were wonderful (very friendly and helpful), and our rooms were very comfortable. It... More

Very nice classic Hotel with accommodating staff. Very nice room with a view of the GG Bridge and the Public Library Building facade! We stayed here after a Saturday SF Whale Tours Expedition to the Farallon Islands instead of paying the high price to stay in SF for the weekend--wanted to explore Berkeley and eat at a restaurant on Shattuck...

It's an old building really beautifully fixed up. They've done a great job retaining the old building appeal (high ceilings, woodwork) while brightening it up so it feels bright and modern. The weird and difficult thing is that they have absolutely no provision for your car if you've driven there. We unloaded our bags and then I asked the doorman... More
