“Fabulous update to a vintage hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2011

Wonderful remodel, extremely clean & comfortable. Though my room was slightly small it was very cozy and perfect for a single traveler. Highly recommend. Outstanding restaurant in this hotel. One of the best I've stayed at on business travel. You won't be disappointed.

Quiet rooms are very important to us. We said so on check-in and they delivered. Even with street construction and a big celebration party in the dining room area, our room was wonderfully quiet. Although a little small, the room was very nicely furnished, modern, comfortable and looked brand new. We travel a lot and this was one of the nicest 2-night stays we have enjoyed. For personal business in the University area and a leisure day in San Fransisco the location was perfect. Having flown into Oakland Airport, we used public transportation everywhere and had no problems or delays. Breakfast one morning in the dining room was with slightly disappointing service, but the next day it was very good. Food was great.

I stayed there with 3 adult children and their families. We had stayed there ten years ago, and checked out after one night because it was such a dump. But a zillion dollar renovation has worked wonders. Everything is great. I would have given it five stars if my room were not so tinyñ but all my children nad grandkids ha very reasonable size rooms. The staff are attentive, free internet, helpful front desk, central location. In short everything you would want in a hotel.

Great location very close to BART. The hotel is well-designed and very clean and comfortable. Internet, wifi and wired, is free and very fast. Only downside is lack of hot water for coffee or tea in the room -- but two coffee shops within a block mitigate this.

This hotel was perfectly located for us, as we attended a wedding on the Berkely campus, which was only a ten-minute walk away.

We had a bit of a difficult time at first getting a lower rate for the size room we needed. I don't understand why we went through the trouble since all the rooms we saw were pretty small. This is never a high priority for us, however, since we like to travel, not sit in our hotel room.

The room itself was very clean, newly renovated and modern, and this place certainly fit the bill as a "green" hotel. Small, but cozy, and we had a nice view looking out towards the campus.

We really appreciated the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff whenever we needed them.

The prices of the hotel bar and breakfast were way too high, of course, but what hotel's aren't? This especially didn't matter since there are tons of fantastic and reasonably priced restaurants around the area.

I stayed here for 4 nights in December 2010. This upscale remodeled Boutique style hotel in the heart of Berkeley was just wonderful in every way...style, service, staff, cleanliness and location. It was all great! Highly recommend.

I transferred from the Palace in San Francisco--i needed to stay longer in the area and the Palace was not available for the extra night--so moved over when the boyfriend was joining me. we stayed three nights.

I loved Hotel Shattuck Plaza! i did book a suite, it was extremely comfortable and provided separate work space from my boyfriend (unlike other faux suites in the Palace and mainline hotels), the staff was great, and the location can't be beat.

A surprising treasure.

would definitely recommend and go back there when i need to be in the bay area.
