I was scheduled to stay here for a business trip to Berkeley and found it fairly easily after a drive from SFO (traffic notwithstanding!). I was intially given a handicap room which was really small with a nice sized bathroom. I called the front desk and they were extremely nice and came up to show me another room which was really nice and much larger. The only downside was that it was along Shattuck Ave which was fairly noisy (even though I was on the 5th floor). The hotel did forewarn me and I said that I was so tired, it didn't matter. After that, I went downstairs and had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel (Bistro Five) which was EXCELLENT. The rest of the trip was very smooth and the hotel is really close to UC Berkeley which is where I was meeting. Also, be forewarned that the hotel has no parking available and you need to park in a parking garage nearby which is $35 per night.
