Can't say enough good things about this hotel. The staff are incredibly helpful, particularly a young woman named (of all things) Passion, and a young man named Nathan. Clean beyond words, from light bulbs to hallways. Warm, inviting feel. My wife particularly liked the security of needing a key card to go anywhere in the elevators when headed to our...

Stayed for 3 nights whilst attending a conference. Staff were patient, professional, and accommodating when an extra night was required. This is a large hotel, rooms were comfortable, and quiet (but I was at the end of a corridor) Bar staff were entertaining and knowledgeable (especially when recommending American Whiskey)

The experience of this hotel starts with walking in and seeing a stunning red chandelier in the lobby. Lobby is impeccable. I got a small room, but it had everything I needed to accommodate my two suitcases of stuff. The furniture was elegant yet functional. The desk chair was extremely comfortable. Walking though the halls was a very cheerful experience--the...

We spent one night in this hotel and wished we had stayed longer. The positive reviews are well deserved. This is a historic property, built in the Mission Revival Style, and has loads of charm and a quirkiness that makes it feel modern. We arrived very early in the morning and were pleasantly surprised to be checked in right away....

The public spaces are appointed nicely and the restaurant / bar is one of the better spots downtown. The location could but be better. It is close to the UCB campus as well as the downtown BART station. The rooms are very small and the bathrooms are even smaller.

We spent one night - sadly only one - in this adorable hotel in the thick of Berkeley action. I loved the colourful, quirky decor with its nod to the hippie culture of the '60s of which Berkeley was a hub. The foyer is charming with a large peace sign embedded in the floor of the entrance. The cafe has...

When I was in graduate school way back in the 90s, the Hotel Shattuck was not on my radar, except as a place to pass by on the way to BART. Since then, it has been refurbished and updated to become an elegant and tasteful addition to downtown Berkeley. Entering the hotel from a side street to the main street,...
