This is one of the most over the top hotels I have ever stayed in. It has that old money feel to it with wood paneling in the elevators (real wood) and design elements that use every view opportunity possible. My room had the most fantastic view of San Francisco! I could see the Golden Gate Bridge, Bay Bridge, Alcatraz,... More

We spent three nights here on what was a busy weekend at the hotel -- there were many large events taking place during the day and the evening -but the staff did their best to provide excellent service. Our two issues (and the reason for four stars instead of five) are the dining room policies and the hefty added costs.... More

I reserved the "FUR-riendly" package for my 4-night stay, as I was traveling with a small Chihuahua mix, but no one seemed to know what was supposed to be included in it. That is, I never received either the daily dog meal or the list of pet-friendly options in the area, despite requesting both about 5 to 10 times to... More

We had a great room, huge, with a view...staff at the Front Desk was smart, friendly and cordial. The young Bellman greeted us (two women) with a rousing, "Hi, you guys" and with a little coaching - became more eloquent.... Trip #2 we enjoyed three meals at Paragon...Drinks on the Terrace with the City view was terrific, Dinner was sublime... More

I brought my mother here to celebrate her 60th birthday and was pleasantly surprised with the genuine improvements made since my last visit. I've stayed at the Claremont several times in the last couple years and was terribly disappointed by the service and rooms. This visit was different-- we were greeted warmly, upgraded by surprise to a bayview room (stunning... More

We were ignored by the doorman when we arrived and it wasn't until we completely unloaded our car and were ready to check-in that we were acknowledged. We never encountered a bellman during our entire stay. It was a spectacular clear day in the Bay Area so we were able to enjoy unforgettable views of the city and the entire... More

We are parents of UC Berkeley student and we have stayed here many many times, particularly over the past three years. After reading the reviews, I have to say I agree with much of what has been said in terms of " noisy" , "needs facelift" etc, but his hotel still has so much charm and nostalgia! Food is always...

A great location. Good facilities (gym, swimming pool, bar, etc) But that is where the fun stops. Room cleaning was not up to mark at all. The service level in general was only 'fair'. The hospitality could have been better. Overall - I had a lot higher expectations than what I got back. Value for money is very low.

I like the old world charm of this hotel. All of the staff seemed very pleasant and attentive except for one women at the spa front desk.

When we checked in and mentioned it was our anniversary, Joy,Cookie and Matt who were working the front desk upgraded our room to a Jr. Suite. When we came back from dinner, there was a bottle of champagne waiting for us. They even gave us a late checkout. The food at the Meritage restaurant was amazing though pricey.

Happy Anniversary! We love to share some special treats with our guests and we are delighted that our associates were able to help make your occasion that much more memorable.
