The Claremont (and specifically Joy) hosted 14 guests for treatments. It was a first-class experience. Each guest's specific requests were handled with grace and delight. Amazing time, no way it could have been any better!

Thank you Oscar. We are within walking distance to the UC Berkeley campus and Greek Theatre. It does depend on your mobility but typically would take around 20 minutes consists of mostly flat terrain. We hope you enjoy the show!

Thank you for asking this excellent questions.The Club facilities, which includes the pool, fitness area and great selection of fitness classes, are included for all registered guests who are staying at the hotel. We do not currently offer a day use option, in order to best ensure the comfort and satisfaction of our guests. These amenities can be quite popular as you might imagine! Please note, the Spa facilities do have their own whirlpool as part of its amenity offerings and if you are a patron of this area you will have a great deal of options in order to ensure your comfort.

Is it really haunted?
I don't think so either. I grew up near there (since 1954) and it wasn't famous for being haunted. Lots of fun sliding down the old fire escape shoot back in the day. It's old but cool.

Hi! Thank you for reaching out. A taxi to campus would be approximately $15, and walking is about 30 minutes. Thank you!
