I stayed at the hotel for 4 days while at a conference at the University of California, Berkeley. The hotel was in a fantastic location; 2 minutes walk from the entrance to campus, and 30 seconds from the Bart. It's right in downtown Berkeley so their are restaurants, cafes, cinemas and more right next to the hotel. The room was...

I stayed at Hotel Shattuck while attending a conference at Haas Business School. There were a few hotels that had been recommended that were closer to the University and I am so glad that I stayed here. Access is a breeze with BART basically at your doorstep, so there really wasn't need for a car. The room was standard, with...

We checked in yesterday. We are staying three days here. We booked a suite. We expected a dresser for our clothes but there isn't one! There is space but lack of closet space and dresser makes for a messy room. It is very clean. Bathroom is spacious but once again, lack of counter space. Overall, clean, nice, but not laid...
