This is a beautiful hotel in a great location...right next to the BART station and the campus. The rooms are on the small side, but you kind of expect that from a hotel of this age and central location. The staff were always friendly and efficient to me and the rooms were well maintained. Housekeeping came by extremely late for... More

Stayed for a 3 day business meeting in the hotel. It is a lovely historical building with beautiful architecture. The room was comfortable and clean. Had a few special requests that were addressed immediately and later followed up to confirm were completed. The food was excellent both in the restaurant and catered for the meeting. From housekeeping to maintenance to... More

I stayed at the Shattuck Plaza at Berkeley for 13 days in May 2014. I was with a group of officers, on official work. The rooms which were allocated to some of the officers in the group were unbearably small, and some had unbearably inconvenient bathrooms. The reception staff was, at times, rude and impolite in its dealings with the... More

Dear lal s, Thank you for your feedback, however we regret that your first review was not as positive as many of the others we generally receive. We do our best to accommodate requests to move rooms and it becomes challenging when we are fully occupied and the requirements of the request are very specific. While our team members are... More

I wish I had spent more than one night in the Hotel Shattuck Plaza! The location is amazing, right across the street from the Berkeley BART station, and just a few blocks from everything happening in town. The staff is welcoming and friendly, and when you walk in the front door the first thing you see is a giant peace... More

I have stayed at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza since it first opened. I have been in a variety of rooms. Most are on the small side, but comfortable. Especially the bathrooms. However, on my last two visits, I stayed in suites. Both were spacious and well appointed. In my opinion, if staying for more than a day or two, a... More

The hotel is very nicely located in the heart of downtown Berkeley - walking distance to the entire university campus (which was the reason for my stay). The room was nice, though the decor was a bit plushy. Internet, electrical outlets and all other facilities in the room worked as expected, including a coffee maker (though Starbucks is just around... More

We spent a night at this lovely hotel. The hotel had a really nice decor and our room was a decent sized room with two beds and a flat screen mounted tv. We liked the fact that there were complimentary bath robes for guests and really good quality toiletries in the bathroom which was small but quite functional and suitable... More

This hotel is just 4-5 blocks from UCalifornia campus, located in downtown Berkeley, and is a great balance of value, convenience/location, and amenities. There is a great bar and good restaurant on site. Rooms and baths are a bit small, but nicely appointed.
