Closest BART station is Shattuck in Berekely. It's about 3 miles away. Don't know about taxi fare -- in SF that distance would be $15 or sol.

You would get out at the Downtown Berkeley stop (on Shattuck) and take the 51B to the Marina. But it is still a good half mile walk from the bus stop. Best bet would be to take a cab from the taxi stand at corner of Center and Shattuck (as WD suggests).

I wonder if the hotel has a shuttle to various parts of Berkeley, including the BART station?

According to Google Maps, it's 2.9 miles driving distance from the Doubletree to Shattuck BART. If for some reason they disagree on the distance, walk a couple of blocks and you should be within their 3 mile radius.

The closest BART station to the Doubletree is North Berkeley. The downtown Berkeley station is further away. Doubletree runs a free shuttle that serves both stations. Contact the hotel to see where they will pick you up.

If you are unable to pick up the free shuttle, you have two options:

1. Get off at downtown Berkeley, and catch AC Transit Route 51B to the Berkeley Marina. The bus picks up in the northbound direction of Shattuck Avenue. Be sure to get on a bus going to the Berkeley Marina, not Berkeley Amtrak. The bus stop closest to the hotel is about 1/4-mile away, at the corner of University & Marina Blvd.

2. Get off at North Berkeley and catch a cab. There are always taxis waiting at the station. Cab fare should be in the neighborhood of $10-12. It will cost closer to $15 if you catch a taxi from downtown, and you will have to sit in congestion on University Avenue that you can avoid by using the North Berkeley station.
