Ann Arbor, Michigan
Reviewed 8 January 2015

Rooms are small and there is an odor in the building (similar to an odor I've noticed in historic, restored properties in the past). Still, you can't beat the location if you have reason to be on the UC Berkeley campus. The older building offers charm and elegance, faded a bit and quirky. Upon my stay this week, the hotel...

Good quality hotel with excellent and helpful front desk service. Booked a king and 2 double bed room and received a complimentary upgrade to a suite. Clean and comfortable rooms. So convenient to Cal Berkeley where my daughter was attending a camp. Walgreens across the street and Jupiter Pizza half a block away. Street noise can be a little loud...

We spent Christmas week - 2014- at the lovely Hotel Shattuck. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but a bit small. (Typical for this area) The hotel is literally minutes from the UC Campus, the BART Station (which now connects conveniently to the Oakland Airport) and there is a large Walgreens directly across the street. Nearby, there are many charming...

The Shattuck, with its central location, allows you to experience the full Berkeley. It's only a short walk to the BART station and the UC campus, with many good restaurants, bookstores, and other shopping venues nearby. There are also a number of street people, skateboarders, activists, etc. within a very short radius. This shouldn't bother anyone who's done minimal research...

Our room in this elegant, historic hotel was quiet (as we asked for), tasteful, and--as one expects in an old hotel--rather small. The location, near the university and a BART station, is ideal. Overall, this is the best place we stayed in an 8-day road trip through California and Nevada.

Stayed here for our 25th anniversary and it was marvelous. Took the California Zepyhr from Chicago and then after a short ride from a relative, we arrived. What an arrival!

The restoration ethic is strong in Berkeley and Hotel Shattuck Plaza is no exception. This well-preserved historic property has been imaginatively decorated to embellish its turn-of-the-century bone structure. A stylish restaurant serving contemporary California cuisine spills into the small lobby, lending a festive flavor. Comfortable room easily accommodated two full beds of very good quality and bath that made the...
