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

We had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza in June of 2011 while attending a family wedding.

I normally stay at the Durant when in Berkeley , but since the Shattuck got good reviews, I decided to try it. I spent three nights there in a King Bedroom on the 5th floor. The room was cramped and there was hardly any space for the luggage, which I ended up storing in the bathroom, which instead was very... More

Thank you for your feedback, and I’m sorry your stay was not an excellent one. As the hotel is a 100 year old historic building we do have a number of unique rooms (oversize, cool corners and alcoves, larger bathrooms etc.), and in many the bathrooms are quite large. When the hotel was renovated and reopened two years ago we... More

Positives - beautiful hotel. Kind and attentive staff. Negatives - don't plan on sleeping! The walls are thin. You hear doors slamming and people walking & talking up and down the halls all night and all morning. We're still tired!

Check-in and check-out was a pleasant experience since the staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are tastefully decorated and clean. We changed from a street side room to an interior room due to street noise. We only ate breakfast at the Five restaurant, and it was good and service was average. Overall, we would stay here again if in... More

This hotel is great. It's located super close to BART and has clean rooms and friendly staff. The only downside is that the lobby (next to their bar) can get unbelievably loud.

Top reasons for us: 1) Comfortable lobby area and room with a modern feel. The ambience and hotel details were accurately portrayed on the website. We also asked for a quiet room away from the street and got exactly that. 2) Easy access to SF in around 25 mins via BART right outside the hotel without the crowds that often... More
