We have stayed at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza several times over the past 4 years of visiting our daughter at Cal. The service is always superb. Rooms are clean and fashionable. Dinner delicious (although my only complaint is the dining room is quite noisy). Location excellent for visiting the campus and the area. You can BART from SFO or park in the garage.
The doormen always friendly, desk clerks couldn't be more helpful.
It is new, clean and well kept.

Dear MEAK,

Thank you very much for the positive feedback. We are delighted that we have been part of your family’s CAL and Bay Area experience. We have made some improvements to the acoustics in FIVE over the past year and are always working to improve the overall experience of our guests. Many of which is learned through feedback such as yours.

What a wonderful hotel! As we entered the lobby, we were warmly greeted and given excellent suggestions of where to eat for dinner that night. The rooms were beautifully appointed and the hotel was extremely well-situated (near the BART, UC Berkeley and great restaurants). We would definitely go out of our way to stay there again.

My stay at the Hotel Shattuck was a great experience due to the wonderful staff! They were so helpful in making suggestions for transportation from the airport to the hotel and getting around Berkeley. The location made it very easy to access the public transportation to get around campus.

My daughter and I stayed here for two nights while visiting UC Berkeley and the location can't be beat if you're looking for something in the heart of town. It's just a block or two from campus, adjacent to the BART station and walking distance to many great restaurants. Upon arrival we were upgraded to a large corner suite which was nice and spacious. My only complaint is the bathroom had no space for toiletries and there was a bit of street noise in the evenings (not so much that it disrupted sleep). There's no hotel parking but the concierge recommended a very nice and secure parking garage just a block away when i made the reservation. Otherwise, very clean, comfortable, spacious and very friendly and efficient staff. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you want super quiet ask for rooms away from Shattuck Ave.

Dear mintchip17:

Thank you for your positive review about your stay with us while visiting on a college tour. Our location is central to Berkeley and exploring the Bay Area and being at the door steps to Gourmet Ghetto is hard to resist.

The stay at the Hotel was just perfect. I was pleasantly surprised and highly recommend it. The staff from Josh, the Doorman when I arrived to Michael when we left were so helpful. Dining was excellent - normally I don't eat in a hotel, like to waunder around the town but the food was excellent and service was over the top in the professionalism of Guillermo. He was the consumate professional. Ramon was also excellent. Rooms were nice - loved the shower. Stayed on the 5th floor for quiet and the inside rooms at night have the sound of the hotel's heating and air conditioner equipment but that was the only downside. Will opt for an outside room next time.
Biggest plus is how absolutely friendly and cheery every single person we came in contact with was. I was very impressed.

Room Tip: Top floor and not over the roof area that has all the heating/air conditioning equipment. That is wh...

My son and I stayed in this hotel on our college tour. We were looking at UC- Berkeley. This hotel was perfect as it was a block from the BART station and about 2 blocks from UC- Berkeley. The hotel is beautiful and very comfortable. The only thing I did not appreciate is that an extra $100 that was tacked on the bill for incidentals that was not mentioned at check in. Only after I asked about it at check out was this explained. I would have appreciated if this had been mentioned. Otherwise was very satisfied with stay.

Room Tip: Higher is better as there is a lot of street noise.
