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

Great location and clean room. I booked a great price with sniqueaway. Would stay here again as our room was a nice size and the noise from the street wasn't as bad as I thought it might be. Front desk- very nice people.

The last time we visited the Hotel Shattuck Plaza was before their renovation and it was a sad experience. However, our Berkeley hosts assured us that it had been fully renovated and turned into a wonderful hotel. They were right. Everything looks new: new carpet, new wallpaper, new paint. The hallways are bright and clean. When you go, look down... More

We booked two rooms for the family to visit son at Cal. Both rooms amazingly small, one barely fit the bed with room to navigate from one side to the other. Clearly a one-person room--no drawer space to speak of. Enjoyed the homeless convention outside; very cordial albeit fragrant. Did I mention cheap? Not even complimentary coffee in the morning;...

I recently stayed at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza for the second time within a year. I gave it an excellent review the first time but this time was even better.

If you need to stay near UC Berkeley (walking distance) or want to have convenient access to the downtown area, I would not recommend any other hotel. I have stayed at both the Durant hotel and Hotel Shattuck Plaza and there is no comparison. I had to stay at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza for two weeks, and the staff was... More

Stayed here last New Year's Eve and had an absolute blast. Our room was gorgeous and we fell in love with this hotel, it is a gem. Just checked in awhile ago and found ourselves in a teeny tiny room #403. Very disappointing. And the view is of ugly roof-tops and the garbage dumpsters. It's obviously a room designed for... More

We regret that your most recent stay with us did not meet expectations. Due to the historic nature of Hotel Shattuck Plaza, our guestrooms do vary in shapes, sizes, and views. We take your comments seriously, and have changed that room type from a Traditional King to a Business Class room for single occupancy. Our Front Office Manager will be... More

Stayed here while attending a family wedding in the Berkeley area. Very nice, high quality accommodations. Our room was a bit tight, but similar to most large metro area rooms. Very unique bar is available in the lobby. Felt extremely safe due to their security measure. Great food of all ethnicities within a stone's throw. Public (expensive) parking is available... More
