Review collected in partnership with fairmont.com
This is by far the best hotel I have ever stayed at. The staff is so friendly and the rooms so sparkling clean. The views were astounding as you could see the skyline and the bay bridge from your room. It was literally like a dream. I wish I lived here!

The Claremont is classic, elegant and romantic. Our room had the most amazing view of the bay.
From the moment we checked-in, we didn't encounter any problems at all. Everyone was friendly, courteous and always ready to help. The front desk answered all our questions and we didn

I love the beautiful Claremont, with atmosphere, space, charm and distinction. The rooms are newly remodeled, with high ceilings, and our room had lots of space. But there are some challenges that come with this. Getting in and out of the hotel, at busy times, can add 15+ minu

I will be going to a concert at the Greek Theater. How is the walk from the hotel to the theater? Most of the other hotels a bit closer do not look at all appealing! Thx! -ON
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!

I am visiting a friend in Berkeley. Do you offer a pool rate for a day/hour visit or whirlpool use as a spa service?
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.

Approximately how much would a taxi cost from the Hotel to Univ. of California at Berkeley? How much would it take us to walk to the University if we chose to?
Hi! Thank you for reaching out. A taxi to campus would be approximately $15, and walking is about 30 minutes. Thank you!
