My company booked a meeting at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza recently. Never heard of it but enjoyed the stay. Hotel was decorated much differently than most business oriented hotels. Wallpaper and carpet are loud but look good. Meeting rooms were spacious and the food was great. Was a bit noisy in the meeting rooms as the hotel staff was constantly... More

This review is based on multiple stays in the Hotel Shattuck Plaza, most recently in March 2014, with comparisons to four hotels and 1 B&B in and around Berkeley. For my needs, the Shattuck was clearly the best of the bunch. Far better than the quaint but aging UC Berkeley faculty club, the dreary Durant, the pleasant but tired Bancroft,... More

I don't much like Berkeley and there aren't a whole lot of good hotel options, but I have had to stay there several times, and this is the best of the hotels I've been in. The rooms are nicely designed and comfortable but not large. Everything is clean and well taken care of. I think this is the best place... More

I loved this hotel from the minute I checked in. I had come off a long flight and the staff saw how tired I was and made sure he got me a higher room on a quitter street. I guess some rooms can be noisy since Berkley is a lively place. The location was perfect. So may shops and restaurants... More

With a few fixes, Berkeley's Shattuck Plaza Hotel might be a great place to spend the night. It's close to the gorgeous Cal campus and the gourmet's paradise inspired by Chez Panisse. The hotel looks great, bursting with color and unusual decorations while still looking like a great place to rest. But then there's the bad. The staff seemed indifferent... More

Excellent location north of UC Berkeley. An area with lots of great shops and restaurants. I stayed here while my son did a Regent's Interview and overnight at Berkeley. I checked in and then we walked a block onto campus. As a mom over 50 I felt perfectly safe walking alone back to my hotel. The hotel was beautifully decorated... More

First, excellent location. Right in down town. Walking distance to excellent restaurants and university campus. The hotel has an attractive bar in the lobby and California style restaurant. The gym is on the second floor. It is small but has sufficient equipment. Initially I was checked into 255. It was a small corner room with a shower and full bed.... More

I stayed at this hotel two nights. The first night was one of the five worst nights in a hotel in probably 2,000 hotel nights on the road. I landed late -- so the good rooms were taken. I was first shown to Room 202. There is no sound insulation and I concluded that the repetitive woodsawing noise must be... More

Hotel Shattuck was clean, comfortable, and stylish. The rooms were well set up for business travelers - free WiFi, plenty of outlets, Apple device plug ins, etc. Food (breakfast) in restaurant was delicious, though not cheap. Very convenient to BART and UC Berkeley. Tons of food joints nearby. Staff was very friendly & helpful.

The hotel has an excellent location, with a BART station (Downtown Berkeley) across the street. There are Walgreens, CVS, restaurants and bakery nearby. The staff is friendly and rooms are small but very clean. Hotel has been recently remodeled and seems like new!
