I travel quite a bit for business and pleasure, this was perhaps the best hotel experience in years. The staff was excellent, they went above and beyond in every aspect. The location was perfect, in the heart of Berkeley, walk to everything. Bart is across the street, easy trip into San Francisco and the airport. (My trip was one day...

Outstanding Hotel and Restaurant in Heart of Berkeley. Everything was pretty much perfect. Nice rooms (even though its old hotel building), beds great, staff friendly and helpful. Location is ideal: next to BART and bus stops; I did my visit with no car - in fact, you get around faster without one. Restaurant "5" was excellent -- i had venison...

My wife and I were in town for a somewhat somber family occasion, and somebody recommended the Shattuck as a place to stay. It turned out to be an excellent choice.

Second time for a three day trip, last 3 years ago. You can fix a lot, but not the location, hence an average rather than two stars I would have given otherwise. Probably still best choice in central Berkeley, period. My experience: Arrival too early (noon), check in is at three. I was 'fast-tracked' and had to ask again after...

We stayed at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza for three days and appreciated its central location, friendly staff, gorgeous old architecture, lobby bar, and comfortable room. I loved the hallways with the unique wallpaper in a red, white, and gray color scheme. We like to take the stairs so appreciated the window-lit, open stairway. The room was nicely decorated with high...

Room was fine. Service generally professional. However, a club sandwich ordered for room service at 3 in the afternoon shouldn't take one hour and, when it comes, should be more than toasted bread, overcooked bacon, limp lettuce and an out of season tomato slice. Flavorless. Morning breakfast in their signature restaurant -- ordered a lackluster eggs benedict; this is a...
