Accommodations

We have a block of rooms at two hotels this year.  The Hotel Shattuck Plaza, in downtown Berkeley and the Berkeley Lab Guest House, on site at LBNL.

Hotel Shattuck Plaza, Berkeley

East Bay

Convenient Location - Around the corner from BART, the hotel is easily accessible to and from OAK and SFO airports. In addition, the hotel is two blocks from UC Berkeley and amidst a myriad of restaurants, theaters, and shops.

Historic Property - Built in 1910 by the family of Francis Kittredge Shattuck, the hotel was Berkeley's first, and set the standard for hotels that followed. After undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation, this is Berkeley's newest boutique hotel.

Eco-friendly Operations - Green initiatives have been implemented throughout the hotel including a key card activated energy systems in rooms.

FIVE, A Modern American Bistro - FIVE features local, organic and sustainable ingredients. American Cuisine, casual yet upscale.
