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.

Great hotel in Berkeley, close to the campus. A really charming place in an old fashion building. Do not expect huge, modern rooms and baths. Expect being thrown back to the thirties, of course with all amenities of a luxury hotel. Great lounge area with awesome bars and restaurant. Excellent breakfast, really kind service. And an incredible spa and fitness...

The Claremont was recently renovated and has a modern, classy feel. There is little to do close by, however the hotel has extensive club facilities onsite so you really do not need to leave. The pools are beautiful and there are many options for staying active including tennis courts, yoga, pilaties machines, a spin studio, trx studio and several cardio...

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!

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.

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.
