The Hotel Shattuck Plaza reopened in June 2009 as the jewel of downtown Berkeley, California. After a multimillion dollar renovation which combined the building’s historic charm with modern technologies and amenities, this landmark, boutique hotel provides an upscale haven for business or leisure travelers. Located two blocks from the UC Berkeley campus and next to the Berkeley BART station, the hotel is perfectly positioned for guests visiting the San Francisco Bay Area.

Ran away from a cute but grundgey AirBnB to this place- for the same price. Shattuck Plaza room was immaculate and nicely designed- from the photos, I think it has been very recently remodeled. Fresh and current. Staff was lovely. I will be back.

The Bart is right across from the hotel and the University and downtown are in walking distance. Even though it is in a busy area, it is very quiet. The room and bathroom is spacious and well-appointed and everyone was friendly. I would highly recommend.

Not a lot of options in Berkeley. Good location relative to campus and downtown. All within easy walking distance. Friendly staff. Small but nice rooms. Like you would expect in an old hotel. Difficult for pick up and drop off due to the lack of any kind of pull off area

As soon as we got to the hotel, my fiancé and I were greeted promptly at the door. Will, the doorman, was incredible! Not only did he accommodate me with checking in my bags, but he was patient as I asked him 2 different times to get something out of my bag. Will also pointed

My wife visited Berkeley for the first time and stayed at the Shattuck Plaza as part of a group. The lobby was being renovated, but did not detract at all from our positive experience. The room was large, bed comfortable, and room amenities perfect for our needs. Downtown

The hotel is at the west side of the campus, and the theatre is on the east side but still a a very manageable walk.

Your looking at 15+ minutes depending on traffic. If you stay there I suggest taking the BART.

Not really convenient. Try the Marriott. It's within walking distance and has self-parking.

"I was in an "inside' room - view was nothing, but quiet and peaceful. Had a king bed in a cozy room- Third floor. It was so quiet."
"Ask for a room AWAY from Shattuck street"
"small rooms with small bathrooms. Again, be aware that some rooms do not have much in the way of air conditioning."
"Try to get a room away from the elevator"
"Rooms that are inward facing seem quieter."
$204 - $425 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
