“Fun, Funky, Comfortable, Convenient”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

My husband and I booked this hotel due to it's proximity to BART and University Avenue. We weren't disappointed. After parking at a public lot across the street, we were greeted by a giant peace symbol in the marble foyer....very appropriate for Berkeley and it brought a smile to our faces. Check-in was efficient and personable. Our room on the 4th floor was some distance from the elevator but the bright, cheery hallways lined with photos of local landmarks made the walk to the room a fun adventure. The room was spacious and comfortable. Dinner at Five restaurant was delicious and not badly priced for the quality. We've stayed at that "other" fancy hotel in Berkeley and much preferred this one. We wouldn't hesitate to return.

The Shattuck is in a perfect location, just steps from the downtown BART, the campus, the new Magnes Library. With very pleasant help and good breakfasts you could hardly want more. Our only complaint was that our bathroom was tiny, with towel racks too high to be reached and no full-length mirror anywhere in the room. However, for convenience, cleanliness, and attractive furnishings you couldn't do better.

Sort of quirky decor but great place to stay. Comfortable rooms, great beds and bedding, clean, and perfect location - what else can you ask for in a hotel? We were in a room which was the farthest from the elevator but it was quiet (except for some work being done on neighboring restaurant). Breakfast was good. We'll come back.

Room Tip: Some rooms you have to walk and walk to get to - but they are quiet.

Yuk. Not a great stop for business.

The complimentary internet gave me 12 hours for free. Then it quit working at 8.20 in the morning and wouldn't let me sign back on.

The phone was broken. Probably just the battery was dead, but I still couldn't talk with anyone about the fact that the internet didn't work. The desk chair was broken and wobbly.

At 7AM, they started tarring the roof of the adjoining building. Basically like having a garbage truck parked outside my window.

If this is the best hotel Berkeley has to offer, Berkeley needs some more hotels.

Room Tip: Best way to choose a good room is to choose a different hotel.

I stayed at Hotel Shattuck one night only for business. The front desk person was excellent and the process was very smooth for check-in. I received an excellent room with great bed and a very nice bathroom and unique ammenities. Our function at the hotel was well handled and food was excellent.

Also like to call out that the bellman were extremely helpfu.

drawback - parking is across the street and very expensive.

Location is excellent..

Room Tip: ask for inside room - king bed

The rooms are comfortable and clean, but nothing special. No on-site parking or valet, which was very inconvenient. The night we were there, the restaurant had to stop taking customers because the kitchen could not keep with up with demand, although there were many open tables.

The location is good for walking around Berkeley.

Room Tip: Try to get as high a level room as possible because the street noise is loud.
