Very sweet and cute hotel & spa! I believe it's one of the biggest hotels in Berkley, CA, nicely decorated with the modern and luxurious touch. Loved those comfy beds with leather head boards - best spot for breakfast in bed! Came for just 1 night but wish we stayed longer!

Reviewed 5 December 2016

Positively LOVED this place! My sister and I stayed during Thanksgiving and had an amazing experience. Lindsey B. at the front desk truly made our stay. She was so helpful and engaged that it set the tone for our stay. The bar staff at both the lobby bar and the Limewood were also beyond friendly. Seriously, the service there was...

This review is a follow-up of my October 2015 comments while property was in total disarray and broken up like a 100,000 piece jigsaw puzzle! Confusion reigned amongst the staff and management.....yet Mr. F.F. (CEO) promised that this hotel would rise from a full-fledged construction nightmare to a new 5-star classic! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!! Another Grande Dame Hotel, known as the...

We had an awesome visit and plan to return. You must experience their weekend "tea" and their Sunday brunch. Try to request bay view rooms. Super nice room and outstanding service. Friendly and helpful servers in lounge. You must catch the sunset from the lounge.

Although my stay at this hotel was very short, only one night for a business trip, I was highly impressed with the room and hotel. My room was impressive, bedding, bathroom, tv, and furnishings all surpassed my expectations. The hotel is remodeled beautifully. I would love to stay again.

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...

Stayed here for just a couple of days but was impressed by the quality of the service here. When I first arrived, there was a leak in my room's bathroom and, even though I had arrived in the early hours of the morning, I was promptly moved to a different room and offered a complimentary plate of cookies as an...

The Claremont is nicely located away from the noise of downtown, but close enough to be convenient. It's a HUGE old hotel (the largest wood structure this side of the Mississippi, according to the manager), and mostly updated pretty well. The large windows in the lobby and bar area offer great light and lovely expansive views. It's a pet-friendly hotel,...

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...
