Who We Are...

Since 1973, BPR has developed and managed unique hotels that were designed to create lasting memories. We strive to bring real passion and creativity into every project. As a family owned company, our team and hotels are a reflection of our core values: To be scrappy and hardworking, to be authentic and humble, to always seek to understand and be committed to growth.

The BPR team is a group of self-starters and outside the box thinkers. We are scrappy individuals who are committed to team growth. To us, every interaction and project is a chance to create a unique experience. It's a chance to roll up our sleeves and work with the resources we have. That's how we got our start.

Today, BPR is a company of 600 employees, with thirteen lifestyle and branded hotels, all unique to the communities they serve. Although we have grown tremendously since the beginning, the same core principles passed down from our founder remain intact. That's why we are committed to finding creative individuals who have what it takes to get the job done.

Help us build something unique.

Managed by BPR Properties, The Hotel Shattuck Plaza is a 199-room boutique hotel located in Downtown Berkeley, less than a 2 minute walk to the lively campus of the University of California Berkeley. The Hotel Shattuck Plaza welcomes its employees into its newly redesigned historic style with the perfect mix of contemporary design and vintage charm.
