I've stayed here on 3 different occasions over the past 18 months and have enjoyed the stay every time. I've been here both for business and pleasure and the rooms are very nice, clean, well laid out, and updated. The staff is excellent and the food & drinks I've had in the hotel restaurant have been very good as well.... More

I travel for business. A lot. My work often takes me to Berkeley, where there are many fine options for lodging. My favorite, by far, is the Hotel Shattuck Plaza. The building has undergone a beautiful restoration, and from the deco-inspired lobby with gorgeous red chandelier, to the bright and clean stairwells, the property is extremely well maintained.

We stayed at the Shattuck Plaza for six days in March, 2012. The good stuff: beautiful decoration, excellent service and help at the front desk, great location - I took BART back and forth to SF easily - and the restaurant was certainly fine. The notsogood stuff: spotty WIFI access, a room service lunch that was not up to par.... More

The hotel was clean, and quite fresh in carpets/look. It was also conveniently located to UCal, and the BART. However, the rooms were small (like the old days in NY City), and the fitness center was minimal. The restaurant, "Five", was very good for breakfast, and quite busy in the evening (each night, but I did not eat there) so... More

but also easy into SF, 1/2 block to BART, much better bargain than comparable properties in Union Square. Very friendly helpful staff. Rooms are smallish, this is an older building (but fully updated). Bathroom door has translucent window, disconcerting to watch your significant other use the room.

I stayed at this hotel about a year ago, I was quite surprised. Excellent service and friendly staff, grab and go breakfast was a great feature (coffee was excellent). I loved the unique aspects of this hotel it very much exemplifies and captures Berkeley's unique feeling. I loved the marble baths and the marble peace sign designed into the marble... More

Thank you for the positive review. Based on similar feedback, we are adding coffee makers to all of our Cityscape rooms now and our plaza view rooms next. We will continue to explore the viability of offering them in all of our other rooms. More

Comfortable, nicely furnished rooms and baths near to U Cal and BART. Service was great, as were all the amenities.

Spent an evening last week at the Shattuck on the recommendation of a luxury hotel in SF -- so I was expecting 4* accommodations and service. The Shattuck fell short, but here are the reasons (you might find them just dandy): a) When making the reservation (with the front desk 2 days in advance) my inquiry regarding parking and valet...

We certainly regret that this guest did not have a stay that we are generally known for. I am most disappointed that we were not able to resolve their concerns during the stay, which is when we always like the opportunity to reconcile a missed expectation. All the same, information such as this is helpful for us to learn where... More

In early February we stayed at Hotel Shattuck again. It was our second visit and it was another good experience.

A snazzy contemporary renovation has created a very comfortable hotel near U Cal & BART. Only detraction was the small fitness center.
