The member of staff who checked me in was marvellous - she was the supervisor of the reception and went out of her way to help. Such a wonderful person must be the most valuable asset to any place and makes the place shine. The nice member of staff helping us with the drinking water issue was so friendly, efficient... More

This is a great and quiet place on the edge of Berkeley that is full of the charm not seen in more modern hotels. The gym, spa and tennis courts are modern and well equipped. The gym is quite large by hotel standards.

100 years ago, visiting a hotel was a rare experience -- travel was limited, and a visit to somewhere was a once-in-a-lifetime event. Monumental hotels were built because there weren't many from which to choose. In Berkeley, in fact in Northern California, one of those monuments is the Claremont Hotel. This sprawling edifice, lovingly restored and maintained, still conveys this... More

I like staying at the Claremont when i am in Berkeley. It is a beautiful charming hotel in a great location.The service is always exceptional. Both Paragon and Meritage are great places to eat. If the weather is nice get a table outside at Paragon. The spa and fitness facilities are very good but can be crowded at times. The... More

I had an excellent last minute stay, at the desk I was informed they didn't have anymore of the type of room I booked so I got upgraded to a suite with a bay view (score!). I stayed on site and enjoyed the two restaurants and bars. I experienced excellent customer service. After a week of fieldwork it was an... More

Great location and grounds, but the rooms and public areas in the hotel are a bit worn-out; the new owner, the Fairmont group, is planning major renovations- which are expected to begin around the end of 2014. The tennis facilities and pool/spa (which we did not use) look great. Our room took forever to reach (2 elevator rides and 2... More

I am a member of the Club at the Claremont. I have gone to the spa many times and use the same masseuse every time. She is great. They have added a 19% mandatory tip. Total, including tip $150. Also- the hot tub was only lukewarm when I entered the spa. When I told them as I was leaving they... More

We were attending a wedding in the Berkeley hills so the location was perfect for us. We loved the old-fashioned charm of the hotel, which has been beautifully maintained in the public areas and restaurant. We chose the bed and breakfast package and were offered the choice of room service or breakfast in the dining room. The food offerings were... More

I took off a few days of work and decided to treat myself to a "mini-vacation" at the Claremont Spa. I booked an 80 minute massage, but along with that comes the ability to use the spa facilities (steam room, jacuzzi, full body showers etc).. So you can definitely turn your massage into a "spa day". This spa is a... More
