Over Christmas holiday, I booked a room in the newer sections because I knew the rooms in older section were subpar. The hotel has a nice, festive atmosphere at this time of year. The room I was given was an extremely long walk and 2 elevator rides from the lobby. However, it was quite nice. That is until 5am when... More

Thank you for sharing your viewpoint, as we value all feedback. Our historic hotel dates back to the early days of the gold rush and is most certainly unique, with no two rooms exactly alike. It is truly disappointing to learn that you were unhappy with any part of your stay or your accommodations, despite the room change. There is... More

Had a beautiful afternoon with my daughter. It wasn't daughters 6th birthday and she requested to go to a "fancy" hotel. I had never been to the Claremont but always admired it while in Berkeley. Anyway, spent the day by the pool and enjoyed our day. Later that evening we tucked into bed, watched a movie and my daughter fell... More

My wife and I checked in for a belated anniversary stay. The room was terrible- poor furnishings, dusty, a bathroom that resembled something from a roadside truck stop, pillows that are lumpy and go flat once your head rests on them. All this for $370.00 per night! Plus parking plus a resort fee that includes wi-fi. Nice tennis courts and... More

Thank you, Clarement for making our anniversary stay so special. Every single detail was executed perfectly from the beautiful room to the champagne to the memorable breakfast. This is a first class establishment. We experienced true luxury.

My wife and I went in 2013 and had a fabulous time. This year there were fewer options regarding music styles (3) and none really were geared for anyone over 35. One live band was so out of key, it was sad. Last year there was snacking food to help balance alcohol consumption, nothing this year. Hard to say what... More

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... More

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.

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.

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.
