This was our third trip to Berkeley and the third hotel we tried. This was our favorite. Great location among restaurants, pharmacy, $1.25 ice cream cones and BART. The room is smaller but perfect for our needs. The staff is very friendly as well as helpful. Lastly having the restaurant worked out well for meals as well as meeting up... More

I have stayed at Hotel Shattuck over five times. I look at the other hotels (both reviews and walk by) and I am always back at Hotel Shattuck. The lobby is small, yet they get the job done quickly and efficiently. The bar is awesome and the restaurant is good (not great). I have stayed at all levels of rooms,... More

This is a bright and clean hotel. Its location in downtown Berkeley can't be beat - close to many restaurants, BART, and the University of California. FIVE Restaurant is a great spot for cocktails and apps; also had lunch and dinner there and loved it. Try to snag a room on the side of the hotel along Allston Way -... More

The Hotel Shattuck is a great boutique hotel that is conveniently located across from the BART line in Berkeley. An easy walk to Cal Berkeley and surrounding shops, restaurants, and attractions. In-hotel restaurant/bar is convenient.

We come to Berkeley quite often and always stay at the Shattuck Plaza. The staff has really made our experience there like a little bit of home. They greet us like family and are always ready to help in whatever way possible. I would highly recommend it.

For those of you reading this and have stayed at this hotel recently, then you get my joke. But for all others, this spot is in a good location. You have a BART station right across the street surrounded by a levy of marts and restaurants. I highly recommend going to Venus down the street for brunch. You won't be... More

I booked 3 rooms for an event and then encouraged others to stay. I was not given a better rate and spent almost 5K on my own. The room was good but the service was lame. If you are sitting in the lobby you have to go to the bartender he won't come to you. Check in has an attitude.... More

I love staying here when I need to go into the City for business. The Bart Station is steps away from the main lobby and you are in downtown SF in no time. Plus there are lots of things to do in Berkeley. The hotel is beautiful, comfortable, and the service is fantastic. LOVE IT! It is a gem.

Can't say enough good things about this hotel. The staff are incredibly helpful, particularly a young woman named (of all things) Passion, and a young man named Nathan.
