I don't understand why some reviewers complain about the per-room-cost. Good grief! What do they expect? Classic cheapskates who think nothing of paying $100 to fill up their gas-guzzling SUV's, but then complain because they don't a sprawling suite for $145. First and foremost, the Hotel Shattuck has a "clean feel." Not only does it look clean, but if feels... More

Hotel is well situated to see downtown Berkeley. Staff very spirited and helpful. Curbside assistance was well appreciated. Room are well appointed without any frills. Didn't use the restaurant but it was well occupied in the evening.

Was there for five days, the staff was wonderful. The first night I was in room 500, which was by the elevator. The gentelman at the desk warned it was by the elevator, but was only room available. While the elevator was noisy, worse was the sound of running water( must have plumbing running near by), first thing in the... More

Shattuck Plaza was fine and a fairvalue for the rate we paid as we visited our son who is a grad student at Cal Berkeley. We requested a room with a bay view and were accomodated. We had a nice view of the Golden Gate Bridge. the hotel was refurbished a few years ago and is immaculately clean. The room... More

We stayed for just over a week with an adjoining room for our three kids and have a lot of great things to say. Very welcoming and attentive staff, clean, comfortable rooms, well decorated and comfortable public spaces. Good new equipment in the exercise room (although a bathroom available during exercise would be nice). The restaurant food was very good... More

I stayed here for a few days before Christmas while visiting my daughter. It is conveniently located near the Downtown Berkeley BART station in a beautiful old building downtown. The first room I stayed in was very small, but what it lacked in size it made up for in charm. It was a corner room, and I had windows on... More

The location is great and there aren't many other options so that's its big plus. It seems to be trying to look like a luxury hotel; I’ve heard it used to be not-so-good and was recently renovated. Unfortunately, the money spent on bells and whistles (e.g. input plugs for the TV built into the wall) would have been better spent... More

The hotel is reasonably priced, well maintained, and right next to the downtown Berkeley BART station. A short BART ride takes you into SF. There are a lot of restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries up and down Stattuck and University Ave. U.C. Berkeley is only a block away. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and new. This is my second... More

This was my first trip to Berkeley and the Hotel Shattuck Plaza came very highly recommended. I had a great corner room with 2 flat screen TVs on the 5th floor. Although the view in one direction wasn't great I could see San Francisco from the other. The heater was located in the center of the vestibule so certain parts... More

No room to open a suitcase, no closet, no drawers or shelves except two tiny drawers at floor level in a very small wardrobe. Too dark to read with every light on. Reception desk unstaffed at 6 pm, no sign, no apology when they came back 10 min later. Clean, modern bathroom. I do like boutique hotels, but this was... More
