The Claremont Hotel has always been one of the San Francisco Bay Area's grand hotels. Located on one of Berkeley's sun-drenched hills, this elegant white landmark has stood out for over one hundred years (est. 1915). Completion of a complete renovation of the hotel last December has brought the grand dame into the 21st century with elegantly understated interiors in...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 February 2017

I stayed 5 nights while attending a workshop in Oakland, CA. This hotel is enormous with open spaces and wide hallways in the tradition of old European hotels. My room, 636, was huge. 2 king sized beds, large desk, plenty of extra room, with a fabulous, renovated bathroom. Super comfortable. Hotel is in a great location. Walking distance to UC...

We came with our 6 month old and since the club has complimentary child care and the hotel offers cribs in rooms we assumed the hotel is pretty family friendly. The club is definitely very family friendly. The child care facilities are nice and the staff was friendly and very available. There are several different swimming pool areas for kids,...

I am here for my wedding on Sunday, that's why I booked a standard suite. When I first came into the room, everything feels old, the air was stuffy, and things were dusty. I looked out of the window and got even more disappointed. Despite the fact that this hotel has a stunning outlook, the view from my room is...

We have family in Oakland and have been staying at the Claremont 3 or 4 times a year for many years. It was certainly getting frayed around the edges and the new Fairmont management has done a very good job refurbishing the rooms, especially the bathrooms. Having said that, carpets were tired and water pressure in the showers weak (California...

Stayed at the Claremont and loved the iconic and elegant feel of this hotel. The service at every point was amazing. From checking in with Miracle, to tea at the lobby lounge, we were met with happy employees. And a special commendation for the concierge, Jeanne, who patiently helped us plan restaurants for a future stay. She was kind and...

The food in the Limewood Bistro was top notch: Excellent salad with avocado, grilled shrimp and grapefruit sorbet. The hotel has invested in staff and upgrading their facilities. I went to the spa several years ago and it was too crowded. Now, with the remodel, it is lovely. Completely impressed with massage therapist Diane: She listens to her clients and...

The views are tremendous, the facility lovely and the staff very attentive. The food and wine were a bit overpriced but you can't beat the location. Didn't get a chance to visit the spa this time around, but hope to next time.

The Claremont is nicely located away from the noise of downtown, but close enough to be convenient. Great views, great space, great service. Locally sourced food is delicious. Nice hotel with good rooms and a great fitness center with 25 yard pool.
