Recently renovated, very nice hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful, if a touch inefficient at times (e.g. giving a guest checking in (at 9 AM) detailed instructions on how to find a restaurant around the corner while 3-4 other guests waited to check out). In general, staff went over and above to make sure that your needs were met. Nice... More

Spent three nights in this lovely boutique hotel while visiting my daughter who is a grad student at UC Berkeley. I walked right to the hotel from the Bart station in three minutes, and it is an easy stroll to the campus. The hotel is immaculate,the rooms are well appointed, and the staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful.This will be... More

I cannot say enough good things about the Hotel Shattuck. We rented two rooms for nine nights. The rooms are renovated and clean. They were just the right size for my wife and I and our 2 adult children and one teenager. (At one point we had five in two rooms.) The rooms were away from any noise that may... More

We arrived a day early for a family wedding, to settle in with a 93-year-old handicapped relative. It quickly became evident that the ADA accomodations did not meet her need for an attendant. This was a very difficult and worrisome problem. The staff at the hotel desk were patient and very resourceful in working with us to find a solution,... More

On the very first morning of our stay at Hotel Shattuck, July 1, 2011, my wife had a medical emergency in the very early morning hours. The staff immediately got us a cab and we were taken to the nearest hospital within minutes. After our return from the hospital later that day, my wife requested "chicken broth" because she hadn't...

The staff are very helpful and professional. I made sure I got a room facing the bay and had no problem with noise. The food quality was well above average for a hotel. The only real issue I had was that the hotel has no arrangement with any parking garage. You are on your own, no in and out privileges... More

Normally, I might not stay at the Shattuck except for a splurge, but I found a good deal on one of the packaging websites. I was so glad I did! I got a single business room, which has a double bed in a sort of smaller room. But, it was perfectly sized for one person. The bathrooms are lovely, the... More

We stayed here one night for a concert on Berkeley's campus. This eco-friendly hotel was extremely clean and comfortable. This hotel is in easy walking distance to Telegraph road, campus, and the BART station. The only negative was that there was no designated parking for the hotel, and this was a bit of a challenge. Parking in Berkeley is free... More

I stayed here just a night to visit my son and daughter-in-law for the weekend. It is perfectly located in Berkeley. It is close to BART, the University, and an easy walk to Starbucks (and other shops and restaurants...). The hotel is nicely decorated in a slightly funky style that reflects the "culture" and feel of the area. The check-in... More
