The hotel was authentic and satisfying. Great place to stay. Great location, beautiful historic hotel with a great Club and Spa! We loved the gardens. The "gas station" near the hotel has a great breakfast and coffee. Can walk to College ave.

Anniversary stay. A bit weird arrival until we learned the new owner (Fairmont Hotels) was renovating the grand entrance, so that's ok. We had Centennial Package with an upgraded/larger room with gorgeous views of the Bay, nearby bridges, and SF skyscrapers. LOVE the 1920's styling but with modern conveniences. Package included couple's massage which left us refreshed and relaxed. Spa... More

Wonderful massage and spa experience. Comfy beds, room decor lovely. I got a great view for nice price. Gym I'd really nice and has everything one needs. I like how they have tea coffee headphones. And fun activities for 4th of July.

Great place to stay. Great location, beautiful historic hotel with a great Club and Spa! We loved the tennis courts, swimming pool, workout room and the gardens. This Hotel has a great 40's vibe. We'll definitely go back.

although the claremont is a magnificent property and gorgeous location, even with a great room price the extras add up before you even get to your room. however, amanda at the front desk is worth it all. her kindness, thoughtfulness and helpfulness are memorable. thanks to her, we got our money's worth. $30/night to park is ridiculous, but for $10...

We stayed here in July 2015 for one night. The hotel is undergoing renovations so I think I will be amazing when they are done (they are becoming part of the fairmont chain) We were only staying here for one night on our way up North so we booked a Standard King room. The bed was actually a Queen and... More

I stayed at the Claremont with my significant other with the intent on enjoying a relaxing two nights in a luxurious hotel. We paid approx $300 (including taxes) a night for a 'Standard King Room.' Once we opened the door, it was apparent this was a very moderately-sided (small) hotel room with a view overlooking the dumpsters outside. The king-sized... More

I trust the Claremont deserves the outstanding reputation is has. Unfortunately, they are currently undergoing renovations and so now is not the best time to experience all that they have to offer. Just letting people know to check on status if they are booking a stay.
