The Hotel Shattuck Plaza reopened in June 2009 as the jewel of downtown Berkeley, California. After a multimillion dollar renovation which combined the building’s historic charm with modern technologies and amenities, this landmark, boutique hotel provides an upscale haven for business or leisure travelers. Located two blocks from the UC Berkeley campus and next to the Berkeley BART station, the hotel is perfectly positioned for guests visiting the San Francisco Bay Area.

This is a nice downtown hotel. The elevators are keyed so that theoretically only guests can get to the floors. Check in was a bit of a challenge. There were no keys available. So they had to escort me to my room each time I left. This was rather inconvenient, and after a couple

My work in the Bay Area usually finds me in San Francisco, but at the end of February I needed to be in Berkely and stayed at the Shattuck on the recommendation of my client. I had modest expectations that were far exceeded by the reality of my stay. From the moment I checked in

We’ve stayed here several times and this stay was the best yet! From my phone conversation with Camille to reserve the room to the minute I left, when a wonderful tall man whose name I (unfortunately) didn’t get loaded our bags into the car, every single staff member I met was

The Hotel is expensive, not worth the price, nevertheless comfortable if you are just looking for a bed to recover from jet-lag. Pleople working there are very rude and do not expect a minimum personal relation from them. I think the worst thing was that even if I had pre-paid

Dear Teresa, We would like to apologize for the experience you had regarding a debit card hold. Typically, debit card holds are released within days of departing but we realize this was not the experience. We will certainly take this as a opportunity to learn and if you are ever in Berkeley again, will you please contact me directly at dell.dellinger@hotelshattuckplaza.com Warm regards,

The heat at the hotel!! Good luck!!!
Yes I think that is correct. Once you get off at Downtown Berkeley Station, you walk about half a block south on Shattuck Ave and you will see the hotel right there on the southwest corner. Entrance to the hotel is off Allston Way - you will see the doorman from the corner.

We are attending at concert at the Greek theater. Can you easily walk there from the hotel? Thank you!
The hotel is at the west side of the campus, and the theatre is on the east side but still a a very manageable walk.

Your looking at 15+ minutes depending on traffic. If you stay there I suggest taking the BART.

Not really convenient. Try the Marriott. It's within walking distance and has self-parking.

"No view at all in my case, just keep all courtain closed. Good if you need to sleep because of jet-lag"
"I was in an "inside' room - view was nothing, but quiet and peaceful. Had a king bed in a cozy room- Third floor. It was so quiet."
"Ask for a room AWAY from Shattuck street"
"small rooms with small bathrooms. Again, be aware that some rooms do not have much in the way of air conditioning."
"Try to get a room away from the elevator"
