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. Proximity to campus, Keurig coffee in the room, bright and colorful hallways, and exercise facilities, plus a... More

Walked in and Marissa was great at the front desk. I was tired from a long drive and was excited to confirm all the great things I had heard of Shattuck, a BPR properties Hotel.

Really enjoyed our stay. Kayla at the front desk was awesome! She definitely exceeded expectations and we appreciated her taking the time to tell us about downtown and show us a local map.

Cool boutique hotel! Everything about it is really neat. The furniture in the lobby, the wallpaper in the hallways, the restaurant and bar (bartender made a really good Old Fashion for me). The rooms were a little small, but everything seemed new and upgraded! The beds were comfortable and we had a great night sleep. Even our 1 year old... More

Three good nights sleep in an attractive and functional room. Big walk-in closet, roomy bathroom, comfortable bed, big windows, little to no noise. Upbeat, trendy decor. A lively, cheerful lobby, but the upstairs hallway was quiet. Everything worked, easy to check in, easy to check out, no problems. A block from BART, two blocks from the Berkeley Rep, a few... More

Two nights in Feb 2014, business trip. Excellent location for visiting UCBerkeley, the location really can't be beat. Steps away from BART station, so getting from/to SFO was a breeze. Rooms a tad small although comfy, inviting, and clean; and the gym was a bit underwhelming. Tiny bathroom (only shower, no bath); unusual and memorable shower amenities / soaps /... More

I read the other reviews and agree with them. This is a very nice hotel and has some wonderful features. Now for a word of caution about an unusual quirk. We booked our hotel online through one one of the hotel/airline sights - I think Orbitz. When we got to the hotel front desk a portly younger gentleman in a... More

Stayed here for four days for a wedding and was more than satisfied. The location is ideal--in the heart of the city--near countless restaurants, shops, theaters,and across the street from the BART station, a few blocks from the UC Berkeley campus and a few more blocks from the gourmet ghetto.
