The number one priority of a hotel is to provide the conditions for a good sleep. Unfortunately, this is not the case with room 212 at Shattuck Plaza. The room shares a wall with the fitness center having 3 treadmills exactly at the other side of the wall behind your pillow. The typical treadmill noise wave made the whole walls...

Dear talos2007, We regret that you were disappointed with your stay due to the proximity to the fitness room and apologize for this. We have corrected this by altering the time it opens and are researching other ways to provide both a restful sleep and an available fitness center. We have also noted your profile that you do not want...

Lovely lobby (love the peace sign at the door) with a hip, trendy vibe and a very cool bar and restaurant off to one side. Rooms were a little small on the small side but nothing unexpected or unmanageable for a family of 4. Very nice, clean, nice amenities (including a Kcup coffee machine, which I always appreciate). Very firm...

Like a Kimpton: cool, hip, clean, nice amenities, and a bargain. I have spent less per night here than the dumpy motels and motor inns down on University Ave. Would highly recommend. Very close to the Berkeley subway stop and gourmet gulch on upper Shattuck.

Dear Esy 26, We are glad that you enjoyed your experience at the hotel. However regret that you were disappointed with the condition that you found downtown. I recently returned from travelling to another major city and found similar circumstances, but without some of the unique support systems we have. What I do appreciate about downtown Berkeley is that we...

After our last stay, I decided to book another room for our stay during our daughter's CalSO orientation at Berkeley. Because there were going to be 3 of us in a room this time (my other daughter stayed in the dorms), I decided to book at Shattuck suite. I thought it would be bigger and it was, to a certain...

Last week I stayed at the Hotel Shattuck Plaza in Berkeley. I had a five-night stay booked and had prepaid for the reservation. I had booked this hotel after initially booking elsewhere, but I wanted a true Berkeley experience and the ratings on TripAdvisor told me I should try them out. After a very rough year both personally and professionally,...

From the moment my wife and I entered The Shattuck and saw the inlaid tiled floor with a peace sign, we had the inkling we were in the right place. The check- in was quick and informal, and even though we arrived before noon, we were given our room, not luxurious but comfortable. The Shattuck is two blocks from town...

My family has stayed at this hotel in downtown Berkeley twice in the past three months, visiting UC Berkeley. It is in a perfect location for that purpose, only a few blocks away from campus and a block from the downtown Berkeley BART station. It is an older property but appears fairly well maintained.
