The Claremont was relatively recently reconditioned and remodeled when it became a Fairmont property. Thankfully, it got a good face lift without destroying the uniqueness of the property. From the outside it looks the same as before, just less grubby--like a white castle nestled up high. The parking situation is a tad difficult and crowded (unless you valet) and you'll...

I booked too late for the JPMorgan conference in San Francisco and had to look further afield for affordable accomodations. My stay at the Claremont was just superb, the hotel is just perfect and the commute back and forth to San Francisco was easy enough. I enjoyed some glorious early morning runs around the neighbourhood, swimming late at night in...

Revisited the Claremont Club & Spa for a second time as we were eager to see the "changes" brought in as they rebranded under the Fairmont banner. Our first visit to the Claremont Hotel was back in Feb. 2016 right after they were brought into the Fairmont chain and the hotel was undergoing significant remodeling. Our most recent visit in...

This is a lovely hotel and the perfect place for a relaxing get away. I have to confess I stayed here when a reservation mix up left me without a downtown hotel. This is too far away from San Francisco to be a good business option, but I would love to visit again for a long weekend. The hotel features...

I've had both my parents and my in-laws stay at the hotel. (We live nearby and just had a baby.) They love the facility, neighborhood and think it's a beautiful hotel, but the service is extremely poor for a hotel as expensive as the Claremont. My father in law said when he went to check into the hotel, he was...

The staff here was so lovely and accommodating and the remodeled lobby is gorgeous. Rooms are older but spacious and nicely furnished. The view of San Fran was beautiful. Didn't get a chance yo take advantage of the amenities during our one night stay but hopefully next time!

We stayed at the Fairmont over Thanksgiving while visiting our son at Cal. The hotel has been restored and has that old world elegant feel. Service for the most part was amazing with the exception of the Meritage. We were turned away for breakfast even though we were guests at the hotel- but then a lovely assistant manager came after...
