First opened in 1910, the historic Hotel Shattuck Plaza underwent renovations several years ago, making it one of the more popular boutique hotels in the East Bay today. And as Berkeley and Oakland continue to expand into dining destinations in their own right, its an ideal place to stay across the Bay—the Metro is just around the corner, Berkeley’s theater district is nearby, and downtown San Francisco is only a 25 minute drive away. The modern rooms come equipped with flat-screen TVs, an in-room coffee maker, complimentary wireless Internet, and luxury amenities. And the hotel’s chic restaurant FIVE is helmed by Chef Banks White, who serves a menu of updated American classics.
