Great one-night stay. Decor is quite eclectic but fun. Friendly, competent front-desk staff. Rooms well-appointed, clean and of average size. Roomy bathroom with great mirrors for make-up. Excellent location, near many fun restaurants/bars. Parking across the street is expensive and not of ideal convenience but do-able.

Bring earplugs. It's 4:30 am, and I'm wide awake due to the baby crying next door. Lots of street noise as well (Room 223). I'm staying here for a conference at UC Berkeley, and yes the location is convenient, but not a good choice if your goal is sleeping.

Hotel Shattuck Plaza is superbly located for visiting the University of California and also much of Berkeley that anyone would want to visit. It is also only one block from the BART station, so very easy access to San Francisco and the 2 airports. It's pricey, but everything in Berkeley is pricey. Rooms are comfortable and quiet, internet is a...

I was leery of pictures on the website, but what a find! Right in downtown Berkeley, easy to walk and many restaurants nearby. The room was spacious and elegant, windows opened to the street below if you like lively noise, otherwise VERY quiet.

I am currently staying at this hotel but thankfully checking out in the morning.

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.
