I was pleased by the location, which was especially perfect on the day I arrived, as it's right next to the BART. (I had to take a car service to SFO on Sunday morning, as I'd forgotten that BART doesn't wake up early on Sundays.) Downtown Berkeley isn't the most exciting Bay Area neighbourhood, but there's good Cal-Mex and good coffee... More

Location is good, which is right near the BART station. The room is relatively large and clean. The hotel should have offered complimentary drinking water or at least a fridge with mini bar in the room. The lobby/bar where people come here for a drink on Friday is a bit crowded and noisy.

I went to Berkely to attend to a 4 day course and stayed at Shattuck. The hotel is great for this type of stay (business or studying). The bed is very comfortable, probably the most comfortable bed ever! The hotel has a special decoration, vintage and colorful, and the restaurant is very popular during nights. The location is great, 1... More

Upscale accommodations in Berkeley. Comfortable, attractive room; open lobby with good bar and dining. Great location to downtown and UC Berkeley. Rooms on street can be noisy. Overall a good choice in Berkeley.

Stay two nights and would have stayed many more. This hotel has all the amenities of the big chains but provided by the most customer focused staff I’ve ever stayed with and with the uniqueness of a local boutique hotel. There is plenty of parking across the street in the garage and the hotel is near a lot of great... More

When possible, I choose historic hotels over chains — and The Shattuck Plaza proves my preference. I had a bit of trouble on check-in because two different rooms they offered came with more HVAC noise than I could handle for four nights — but the staff could not have been more accommodating and patient (I ended up in far more...

The Shattuck Plaza is a very nice, non-chain hotel with a lot of character. As such, expect a few quirks, like the light switch in the bathroom being hidden behind the in-swinging door. Little things like that didn't bother me at all, but you just wouldn't find them at the Hilton or Marriott, since the room layout is down to... More

This hotel is excellent: the rooms, bar, restaurant, and staff are all great. I have stayed twice, once in Jan 2012 and again in Dec 2012. The second time I proposed to my girlfriend during our stay. The staff knew in advance this might happen, and they were very friendly and gave us a beautiful room. Would definitely stay again.... More

The staff was very friendly. The location was superb. The room was very clean but a bit small. The toiletries were wonderful. We had a great time and took the BART into SF with ease. We shall return to this hotel.
