The Shattuck Hotel is trendy establishment with bright, colorful hallways and updated rooms in the heart of Berkeley. A cab from SFO was about $90; the BART stops right next to the Hotel (but was on strike).
The room I had was one of the larger rooms and was spacious with nice furnishings and double washbasins. The rooms on the street side can be noisy and there were excellent ear plugs in one of the desk drawers. Wi-Fi is provided and worked well. There is a Keurig coffee maker.
There was no mini-fridge or safe in my room.
There is a Starbuck and a Peet's within a very short distance. There is a Walgreen's across the street if you need anything. You can get ice cream for $1a scoop right next to the hotel.
The fitness room is about 15 x 25 feet and had 2 treadmills and one elliptical as well as a set of free weights and an adjustable weight bench. Plenty of towels and water available. Though small I was there several times and never were there more than 2 people using the room. There is space to do floor exercises but no floor mats so use a towel.
Great attentive staff.
I recommend this hotel.
