This hotel is beautiful. We loved our room so much we'll ask for it again on our next visit. We especially enjoyed the bar and restaurant. The staff from concierge to housekeeping were top-notch. We were allowed to see two different rooms at check in in order to chose the one we preferred.

I was visiting UC Berkeley for two weeks and wanted a room close by. I had a basic room but it was approx 350 euros per night due to high demand. The rooms was so small that I asked the desk chair to be removed so I could access the bathroom without climing over my bed. I'm a slim guy...

I stayed at Hotel Shattuck for a business trip and was pleasantly surprised. The service was very friendly. While the hours of the hotel workout facility didn't meet my needs, it was no problem, because I was able to use the Y down the street at no charge. The rooms were a little small, but the bed was comfy and...

I was on business, and this was not a great option for me. Parking inconvenient and dangerous. I had to park 8 blocks away because the garage was closed. I like that it is historic, but it wasn't worth the value. Staff was average. The restaurant 5 was fabulous and food was great. If I were to stay in Berkeley...

What a grand hotel is the Shattuck Plaza. It was so convenient for our trip to visit Cal Berkeley. It is located one block from the Downtown Berkeley BART station and one block from the east edge of the Cal Berkeley campus. Jeff was a wonderful host at registration and made us feel so welcome. The room was nice and...

Make your reservation. Now. PERFECT location, right next to BART stop. Good rooms. Very quiet. Front desk calls your room to see "how you're doing." I was just here for a 4 day conference (elsewhere). Extremely reasonable prices. Too good to be true, but true. Go for it. Only downside is that you cannot get to the Oakland Airport cheaply...

All was fine/good, as expected. In the middle of it all in downtown Berkeley and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Since no stay is complete without a least some criticism : the bathroom didn't seem to be heated, which may not be a problem for 8 or 9 months a year, but at the end of December, it...

This hotel is very lovely. The wedding we attended was so wonderful and this Historic Hotel added to that. The experience was magical. The staff is mostly very helpful and very friendly.

We stayed here on New Year's Eve, on the 5th Floor. We confirmed the reservation twice before arriving, letting them know we were traveling with our dog. We do this often and typically stay at luxury hotels. Upon check in we were asked if the dog was staying with us and said yes. When we got to the room number...
