Amazing view of the bay, Alcatraz, the bridge....beautiful hotel high up on a hill, majestic. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We booked a private car into Napa, suggested by the concierge, highly recommended!

Although the hotel could use some maintenance and updating, it is overall in great shape and a great place to stay in the Bay area if you have your own transportation as it is a couple of miles from most businesses in Berkeley. The swimming pools, tennis courts, and physical fitness facilities are excellent. We rented two rooms. Each had... More

Pulling up to the Claremont I was in awe of how majestic it looked sitting high up on the hill. The hotel has a very interesting history to read about and there are plenty of old pictures in the lobby to check out. All the staff were super friendly and asking if we needed anything all during our stay. When... More

This hotel was beautiful! The room was comfortable, roomy and nice, and the view out the window took in San Francisco Bay, the Bay Bridge, and the city of San Francisco. It was awesome both during the day and at night with the lights of the city. The service at the hotel was very competent with every person we encountered... More

I stayed at the Claremont during a work trip. The grounds were beautiful and the location convenient, with restaurants and shops within walking distance. I loved the fitness center especially. The drawbacks were the guest rooms - badly in need of updating, rather dark and small. I asked for a brighter room after checking out my first option and was... More

Beautiful classic hotel, loved our stay. Large room, comfortable king sized bed, large bathroom and shower. We had a great time visiting the bay area and the Claremont was a great home-base. Located in a great neighborhood in the Berkeley area, nice restaurants, breakfast spots, and bakeries. Rick And Ann's restaurant, located a block from the hotel, was a great... More

This $300+ per night hotel really shows its 100-year age. Looks like last attempt at remodeling "view" rooms is over 20 years old. Ergonomics in our room were awful--closet was way too large, as was the bathroom. Plus, a large part of the room was walled off--probably having to do with a prior attempt to convert the hotel to condos,... More

Thank you for your candor. As you mentioned, our hotel is indeed a historic property dating back to the early days of the gold rush and with it comes all of the unique architectural styling of days gone by. Every guest room in our hotel is completely unique from the next, but we do apologize if you were fully impressed... More

I recently stayed in a 1 bedroom suite at the Claremont for 3 nights with one of my wife and one of our kids. In the past 24 years we have returned to Berkeley and stayed at this lovely hotel on an annual basis yet we had never done that. It was a comfortable room. Our child reported that the... More

We stayed at the resort while touring Berkeley with our son. The grounds are beautiful, located about a mile and a half from the campus. Didn't avail myself of the spa or tennis courts but I did spend some time at the outdoor pool which is quite nice. Our room was a junior suite, which was nothing special; a four... More
