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

Whether dining at one of our on-site restaurants or experiencing a pampering spa treatment, we hope all of our guests are able to make... 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

Did he spray eucalyptus in the steam room when I was there? You bet. Did his conversation make me feel more cultured and entertained than deserve? Totally. I miss Joe Davidson. I'll be back to visit him.

This "old grande dame" hotel is still great. Staff are friendly and helpful. But if you value your workouts, this is a great hotel. The gym is terrific and there are two swimming pools, and a masters team to work out if you want it. Rooms vary in size, location in the hotel, and amenities. It is an older hotel... More

We booked this room with high expectations for an exceptional experience, but we quite frankly have had better accommodations at a Doubletree Inn. Our expectation was that we would enjoy an excellent accommodation at a historical landmark. While the grounds are exceptional, the room (125) was a disappointment. The room coffee maker had been left uncleaned with a dirty mug.... More

We were there for breakfast. Arrived at 8:30AM. We were seated at the "window with a view" - of the tennis court! The busboy with water and coffee was quick but the waiter took forever to show up. One of us ordered oatmeal and the other an omelet. The food came reasonably quick and was ok, nothing memorable. Toasts were... More
