We stayed one night with another couple. Great experience all the way around. The hotel is centrally located and several coffee shops are located within a two-minute walk. The staff was so friendly. Yes, there are a handful of vagrants around, but it's a city, so that is to be expected.

I stayed here at the last minute for business and was very satisfied with the experience. The front desk was extremely helpful and when I asked about staying an extra night, offered me the same room for cheaper than what I could have paid online. It was seamless and easy. I would recommend it.

Before raving about the hotel, must tell you Berkeley is a sad place to visit. There are so many homeless and the city is so past grubby it is almost indescribable. The hotel, however, is the antithesis. Elegant, clean, excellent service, welcoming communal spaces. Interior rooms very quiet. Rooms have Keurigs, bring your favorite coffee. What they provide is decent,...

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. I am delighted that you fund our hotel and our team an oasis during your visit. I am saddened to learn that you felt our city was grubby; we work with the Downtown Ambassadors to actively clean and beautify the downtown. Regrettably, homelessness is an issue in many downtowns, one...

Extremely convenient, just a few blocks from the west side of the UC Berkeley's beautiful campus, as well as many places to eat and see. The hotel itself is rather run-down, from its rickety, small elevator to its musty rooms (the 2nd floor especially exudes an unappealing smell, I think due to the fact that the fitness center is located...

This "first class hotel" is only pretty on the outside. The rooms were dirty, tired and in bad shape (broken lamp shades). And for over $300 I expected to have a closet - not an armoire with a few hangers, ironing board and iron, which fell on me when I opened it. And the hotel staff acted like they were...

> Room and bed were way too small for the price. > No usable lobby. > Everything else was far above average. > Your claim that the hotel was a block of two from U.C. Berkeley was grossly misleading. > Much improved since our first stay when BART was being built some 40 + years ago.

We booked two rooms with two different rates based on the room type, one larger than the other one. They gave the exact room for both reservations. Well that is not entirely truth, one of the first rooms the gave us the keys for was already occupied by someone else...yes they gave us a key to a room where someone...

The only drawback to the rooms at this hotel is that they are very dark at night, with insufficient lighting. They have a tiny light above the bed that is not adjustable, and the desk area has a tiny light that is focused on the work area, and is also insufficient. There is no general lighting, only these tiny focused...

Individual hotels go for ambience and charm; chain hotels strive for consistency. The Hotel Shattuck Plaza is one of the former, which I would tag as "upscale": not the St. Regis or Ritz-Carleton but nicer than a Hyatt or a Hilton. I've lost count of the number of times we've stayed here, somewhere in the 8-10 range I think. For...

We were given a wonderful room and received attentive services from al staff from the moment we arrived and all the way through our departure. We had wonderful views of san Francisco and the Golden gate Bridge. The location of the Hotel in Berkeley also is excellent. We will definitely return and strongly recommend the Hotel to others.
