I stayed at the Claremont for a night back in the fall, and there was one primary reason why I chose this place: swimming pools. On my first night of a week's vacation back in the Bay Area, I wanted to swim outdoors, under the warm California sun, so I picked the Claremont. Having been to the hotel before for...

I have not stayed at the hotel, only lunch, drinks and spa, but it is an incredible place with a killer view from the deck. The spa was over the top indulgence and the bar was relaxed, friendly and upscale.

We are glad you were able to join us at The Claremont Hotel Club & Spa. Lunch and a spa visit sound like a wonderful way to learn about our property for the first time and we are delighted you enjoyed it all so much. Our Spa has been named one of the best of its kind in the country...

Historic hotel property with extensive amenities framed around the spa and club. Club is also open to public members, with tennis, fitness classes and multiple pools. Our initial impression wasn't so positive as we waited behind multiple guests to check in and while our room was dated a bit, it was clean and spacious and had the view it was...

I was a guest at this hotel for one evening as the photographer for a bride & groom whom had rented The Bell Tower room and the Lanai 2, Lanai 3 and Horizon rooms for their grooms dinner, wedding ceremony and reception.

If you want to treat yourself to beauty and elegance, spend a weekend at the Claremont Hotel. Breathtaking views. World class amenities. Amazingly delicious food and drink. Before you go, be sure to review all the amenities so that you are sure to enjoy them. We didn't pack our swimwear, and missed out on considerable enjoyment.

The Claremont Hotel is a place that has been there for years and is considered a landmark in Berkeley! We picked the Claremont for our stay because we had dinner reservations at Chez Panisse and it was close by. Decorated for Christmas it was very festive for a holiday stay. Our room was ok. We did have a bay view...

Our hotel is indeed a well-known landmark in the area and we are so glad you chose to stay with us during the holiday season. Built in the early days of the Gold Rush, our guest rooms all have their own unique qualities and characteristics. We are glad you have mentioned our location as well.

We needed to stay a night after a Bob Dylan concert, and decided to stay at the Claremont because we had always wanted to. What a great choice! The room was huge, well appointed, and afforded a terrific view of the bay. We spent a cozy night, after cocktails in the bar, and ate in the restaurant for breakfast--perfect eggs...

Just spent the weekend at the Claremont. Paid over $300 per night when you figure in taxes and parking. The room was large but blah. I ordered a pot of coffee for the morning for my wife and me.

I have stayed here before and found it quaint, a throw-back to bygone times, cozy and comfortable. This time the experience was not the same as last visit.
