This hotel is located in the northeast section of the Berkeley hills. Famous for its fabulous amenities and ready access to many Michelin-class restaurants, the Claremont retains its claim as a world class hotel. Tennis on site; biking on amazing roads all around. The San Francisco Bay 15 minutes away; Sf itself just 30 minutes on a good day [probably... More

The hotel was beautiful, the food was amazing, but due to its beautiful vintage style our room was small. The service was great. I was out at the pool most of our visit the kids enjoyed themselves! The staff is very personable!

Close enough to San Francisco with much nicer weather. I always choose the Claremont when visiting my godson in Oakland. Love the pool. Kid friendly, very clean. Never disappoints. Cant say enough nice things about this hotel!

Fairmont has just taken over this historic hotel & is in the mist of a complete remodel. When it's finished it will compliment a terrific staff. For WOW factor it will be THE place to stay in the East Bay!

We have stayed at the Claremont many times over the year and love the beautiful historic wood building with the beautiful views. We always book a bay view room or junior suite and are usually treated to spectacular views. This time we were placed in a room on the first floor which was not what we expected. The receptionist explained... More

Classy hotel with an upscale staff, restaurant, workout room and pool. We loved the Paragon Restaurant as well as room service. Every staff member was very professional and we felt very well taken care of- beautiful, clean!

I stayed at the Claremont because I had business in the City (San Francisco) in the morning and wanted to meet with friends in the Oakland area for dinner the night before. The hotel has a private gated parking area. I am not sure how much parking is because I just took a cab from the Oakland Airport. However, the... More

We love knowing you are so fully impressed with what we have to offer here at The Claremont Hotel Club & Spa. It certainly seems as though you were able to enjoy quite a bit for your short visit. Our Club facilities are certainly not your typical hotel fitness experience, as you mentioned, with an Aquatics Center, countless classes daily... More

I know this place is s local classic, but the layout is awful and confusing. You will waste a lot of time simply trying to find your room or how to get out. The fire alarm went off at 11pm and there were old people wondering lost in the hallways not knowing what to do on the 9th floor. I... More

I have stayed here before and remembered the room was small so I paid extra for a view and larger premium room. Waste of money. The bathroom was tiny, the room size average and the view not great as we were on the third floor.

We chose Claremont for a recent visit to our son and daughter in law. Pluses were the lobby, the bed, the overall appearance of the hotel. Problems were: TV is analog, not digital, and gets very few stations. They need to provide bar bath soap in addition to the liquid. We had a less expensive room near the elevator and... More
