Historic landmark hotel surrounded by beautiful grounds. The perfect location if you have to visit UC Berkeley, which is a 5-10 minute drive away. The staff was welcoming, attentive and gracious. Best part of the hotel was the view from our room. Beautiful sunrise and sunset views of San Francisco and its Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge. The room...

We have stayed at the Claremont Hotel Club & Spa several times during our visits to the Berkeley area within the last three years. This is an absolutely beautiful hotel to stay at--very historic and Hollywood-elegant. The typical room comes with a nice desk/work area, average wifi (kind of slow), beds are very comfy, lots of pillows (important if you're...

My best friend treated me to a night at the Claremont for my 50th, I had never been. I loved the location and view. The restaurant Paragon has terrific views and it was a lovely sunny winter day. We went in for lunch and the service was very slow, they had not anticipated the fabulous weather and were slammed, we...

A birthday stay with us at The Claremont Hotel Club & Spa sounds like the perfect way to celebrate! We are delighted you enjoyed both the location and views from our property.

The Claremont is best reached from Oakland airport rather than SFO (an expensive cab ride). Set on a rise in Berkeley it certainly impresses at first sight. The long white imposing building backs onto a tree studded hill and is surrounded by beautiful grounds. The reception area has that classical look of older hotels and the staff were welcoming and...

I have been coming to the Claremont with my GF for a few years. It is the perfect meeting place for us both. The staff is superior. The accommodations are wonderful. Keep in mind this is an old hotel & yet it is maintained superbly.

We bought the NYE package with dinner at the Paragon Restaurant. The room was average, which was totally expected. But, it was clean and the view wasn't too bad. The party was just okay this year. We have attended the NYE party here a few times before and it was better. The hotel grounds are absolutely beautiful and the hotel...

We have traveled all over the world and have stayed at many world class spa resorts. Never have I been more disappointed by a spa resort. The room was adequate, but the bathroom had significant rust and a leaky sink faucet. It leaked to the point that everything on the counter got wet. There was also only one robe in...

Over Christmas holiday, I booked a room in the newer sections because I knew the rooms in older section were subpar. The hotel has a nice, festive atmosphere at this time of year. The room I was given was an extremely long walk and 2 elevator rides from the lobby. However, it was quite nice. That is until 5am when...

Thank you for sharing your viewpoint, as we value all feedback. Our historic hotel dates back to the early days of the gold rush and is most certainly unique, with no two rooms exactly alike. It is truly disappointing to learn that you were unhappy with any part of your stay or your accommodations, despite the room change. There is...

My wife and I checked in for a belated anniversary stay. The room was terrible- poor furnishings, dusty, a bathroom that resembled something from a roadside truck stop, pillows that are lumpy and go flat once your head rests on them. All this for $370.00 per night! Plus parking plus a resort fee that includes wi-fi. Nice tennis courts and...
