Stayed at the Shattuck Plaza for one night during a soccer tournament. The lobby is very cool and the room was comfortable and hip. Great location - except for one thing - the noise. If your room (like ours) happens to front Shattuck (we were in room 225) expect lots of noise. The windows are old and not soundproof. You... More

The Shattuck Plaza is a wonderfully restored and very welcoming hotel right in the heart of downtown Berkeley. The central location makes it a great jumping off point to enjoy all that Berkeley has to offer, including the Berkeley Rep Theater, University of California and Telegraph Avenue. Rooms are very modern and quite adequate with flat-screen TV's and very comfy... More

Very lovely hotel, close to the school and BART. We were traveling around northern CA and wanted to stop by to see our daughter at Berkeley and son in San Francisco. This hotel was perfect for both and more reasonably priced than a SF hotel. The lobby is elegant, the rooms comfortable. Though no coffee maker in the room, you... More

This boutique hotel is in a beautiful restored building in Downtown Berkeley. The lobby is elegent yet not stuffy. The rooms, while a little small are very comfortable. Bed with its many pillows was great, as was the lighting in the room and decor. A bonus is that the rooms have operable windows, and that the hotel is one block... More

I've stayed at this hotel three times now on business trips, and sadly cannot recommend it -- at least for business travelers who value their time and need their sleep. Twice I had rooms on the second floor (once facing the air vents on the back of the hotel, and once facing Shattuck). Both times the noise from outside was... More

What a perfect hotel. Gorgeous restoration with modern accents, attentive staff, and a great lobby buzz. Excellent location for walking up to the gourmet ghetto. Nice products in the bathroom, a leader in hotel environmentally consciousness. A little loud at night because it's in the city on a main road (street noise) but they provide ear plugs in the room.... More

Thank you for your recent stay. Thank you also for pointing out the features that make Hotel Shattuck Plaza a great choice: the service, our green initiatives, excellent location, and more. For a more pleasant stay next time, you may request a room facing away from the street to avoid the noise. Thanks again. Sincerely, David Issel General Manager More

Service was excellent. Daniel at the front desk took exceptional care of us. Hotel renovation is lovely, but needs a bar fridge in every hotel room!

I stayed almost a week and was very happy with the hotel. However, I was really worried about not having my morning coffee in my room (which I read about on this site) so I actually packed a 5 cup coffeemaker! It was the best thing I did. I really think they should provide these in all the rooms. A... More
