Reviewed 13 November 2017

Several friends and I stayed here 2 days for a local event. Hotel Shattuck Plaza is a half block away from the BART station, and within easy walking distance to the Addison Arts District (e.g., Berkeley Repertory, Freight & Salvage), movie theaters, museums, restaurants, and UC Berkeley.

Rooms in this updated vintage property are on the small side, but extremely clean, comfortably furnished with modern updates to accommodate 21st century electronics, and nicely appointed. In room Keurig coffee kit was handy. Bed was very comfortable. My room facing Allston Way was relatively quiet and afforded a view of the bay (rooms facing Shattuck probably get more noise). Room card needed to power up electricity-saving system. Took a little while to figure out the hi-tech temperature control system. Large closet with up-to-date room safe, included a thoughtful emergency flashlight mounted inside the closet for emergencies (like when the power went out throughout downtown during our stay). Note: there are no refrigerators in these rooms.

Bath rooms were modern, chic, with extremely nice soaps. Love the lemongrass & ginger shampoo.

Some of the front desk staff seem inexperienced, e.g., not familiar with transportation to the airport. Overall, the staff were all friendly and helpful. Easy to store luggage either prior to check-in time, or after check-out time. Easy to use lobby PCs to print out boarding passes (the printer is behind the front desk, the staff will cheerfully fetch your print-outs for you).

Pets are welcome here. A plus for folks who travel with pets. A minus for folks who don't appreciate the lonely, bored, barking dog down the hall.

The bar/restaurant is quite good. I had a drink and bar snack while waiting for my shuttle, food was well-prepared, arrived hot and elegantly presented.

Enjoyed my stay, satisfied my need for a little oasis of luxury.

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room, say so when you make the reservation.

Great location, great staff with knowledge. We ate there and all staff were very friendly. I will definitely come back. Bart is next to it, very convenience! Target & welgreen are also next to it. Super location

I travel to Berkeley/Oakland regularly for work and prefer to stayed at the Shattuck when the rates are reasonable (for the Bay). Hotel Shattuck is my #1 choice for a Berkeley or Oakland hotel and I've stayed at nearly all others. Access to BART is one its best perks and BART is definitely the easiest way around the Bay, even with delays. I've stayed in most room types. If you need quiet, ask for it. Rooms facing Shattuck absorb all of the street noise. Interior rooms can be smaller but they're always quiet. Some rooms have just enough room for a bed and desk but it's fine for a night. Beds are comfortable, rooms & bathrooms are always clean, and toiletries are nice. I'm not a fan of Keurig because I drink tea. (Why can't US hotels provide kettles?) The restaurant is great for breakfast. The hotel finally added room service but it's quite limited and not really vegetarian friendly. Downtown Berkeley offers excellent hotel and bar options too. Wireless can be touchy. I generally won't pay more than $300/night for this hotel and any rate below $200 is a good deal.

Room Tip: If you need quiet, ask for a quiet room. Rooms are small but nice.

After a full day of Berkeley activities and destinations the Hotel Shattuck was the perfect spot to end the day. The hotel is a lovely property with a bustling bar our room was very “handsome” with comfortable beds and linens, large flat screen tv and sparkling clean bathroom.

Great location close to the UC Theatre. Room was lovely although not overly spacious. Very comfortable bed and toiletries were exceptional. No microwave or fridge. Breakfast at Five was excellent and affordable.
