After reading reviews I made reservations for my husband and Shattuck Plaza is an elegant and classy hotel. I didn't eat at their restaurant, but it was always packed with people, so that tells me that it must be good! The room was small, but perfect for my husband and I to rest after three long days of moving my daughter to her new apt in Berkeley. There is no refrigerator, in case this is impt to the reader. The staff was not the friendliest, but were professional. The only warning I would give the readers is that there is no hotel parking and even though there is a public parking right across, you have to pick up car by 8am if you don't want to pay for an expensive full day parking. Having to get up early when you are on vacation and run in your pajamas across the street and then go in circles to get a street parking (for 2 hours only) was NOT convenient or enjoyable! I can't understand why this hotel can't make a deal with city to get a reduced rate for its guests until check out time!
