I recently stayed in the Shattuck on business, and have to say I was very satisfied. From the moment I booked, until I checked out, everything was perfect, with one small exception. Will get back to that.
The people at the front desk were very friendly, and helped me out with all questions I had during my stay. A bit "layed-back", but that is possibly the liberal Berkeley charm? I have to commend the guys at the bar; very professional, knowledgeable and entertaining. If you're not a guest of the hotel, be sure to stop by for a drink when in town. Rooms are great, if a bit on the small side, and the beds/pillows were just wonderful. I have never slept so well in a hotel, even being jet-lagged from my flight from Europe. The room was spotless too! Be sure to request a quiet room facing the back of the hotel, or on the top (5th) floor.
Only downside; inadequate water pressure in the shower, something my business partners experienced as well.
I will certainly use the Shattuck Plaza next time I am in Berkeley!
