Centrally located in downtown Berkeley, steps away from the BART train to San Francisco, this is a great place to stay for business or pleasure. The hallways are bright and welcoming, and the lobby, restaurant and rooms are stylishly furnished. Fresh water concoctions change daily in the lobby: mint-cucumber, strawberry-orange, apple etc. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The rooms and...

We spent two nights at this hotel in Downtown Berkeley. Our stay began with the realization that the hotel had no on-sight parking.. and little room to unload our luggage in front of the hotel. Also there were no bellman in front of the hotel. So Checkin was complicated. We signed up for a suite with a view. We ended...

I have to admit that I got upgraded to the presidential suit, so definitely I liked the experience. Trying to be more objective, the hotel is really great. The location is perfect, near all the restaurants and the BART. The hotel has extremely friendly staff, and the ground floor has a nice restaurant and bar. The room was quiet although...

Dear Pulaski888, Thank you for taking the time to share about your experience as a guest at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza.

Start by talking to Nathan at the front desk: he will guide you to 4th Street to shop, guide you to restaurants. Smashing character to the place, warmth and great location. One caveat: staff in the dining room could be friendlier.

My husband and I are Cal grads and our daughter is a current student there, so we visit Berkeley several times each year. It took us awhile to find the Hotel Shattuck Plaza but it is now our favorite. The lobby, restaurant/bar, and rooms are beautiful.

The hotel is in a great location. Right by Bart, near everything downtown Berkeley including the campus. The rooms are modern and very comfortible. My rating comes from mix up with reservations that would have cost me personally. I did call and reservations couldn't help and managers weren't available. I cancelled the remainder of my current and future bookings and...
