OK, I chickened out. After I posted that I was staying at the Hotel Shattuck, David Kearns posted a note indicating it hadn't gotten good reviews. Looking at other hotels on the site, I wasn't too thrilled with them either. So, I switched to the FourPoints Sheraton in Emeryville. I've stayed there before and know what I'm getting there. I'm not that adventurous when it comes to where I sleep.
