The rooms are beautiful and the people are lovely but #1- we ordered a pot of coffee, ($9.00 on the room service menu) from room service every morning because there was no coffee available in the lobby and I hate those mini coffee makers in the room. When we checked out after 3 days the room service charge was (... More

Amazing place - amazing employees!! This is a beautiful trip to the past. They just don't make 'em like this anymore. I have a new favorite. This place has so much character. The service was unsurpassed. Friendly happy staff.

The hotel is a sight to see (huge, white building on top of the hill) and it does have that historical charm but it is quite old and the rooms have an odd layout. It drives me nuts when there is not an accessible plug next to the bed for phone charger; lamp on desk, away from bed had the... More

A late event in the east bay had my wife and I looking for an easy hotel that would be worth the expense. The service was very good. The team at the desk was attentive and knowledgable. Andrew Lester's team at Meritage gave great service and good insider tips on what to get and when to avoid the brunch crowd.... More

I have been looking up the hotel on the hill everytime when I visited Berkeley area for years. finally I got a chance to stay and we upgraded (of course we paid extra ) to bigger corner room where we can overlook the Baybridge, Golden gate Bridge and buildings in San Francisco. Wow, I enjoyed to be in the room,... More

Stayed for two weeks at the Claremont for business. It is a beautiful old hotel, with real elegant charm to it. I was initially given a room where the safe and aircon did not work. The reception staff, especially Alex, went out of their way to help me, and I was shown several other rooms to pick from! I ended... More

The hotel looks grand and exquisite as you drive up...It has a lot of old charm, but with the old, you have small rooms. As a business traveler, it's a little too much of a resort. The room I had was small, the door opened right into the bed and the bathroom was larger than the room itself. As a... More

The Claremont is an old property that seems to reinvent itself without losing its vintage charm. The location is a strong selling point being on a hill with a splendid view of San Francisco and both of its legendary bridges. The lobby is wide with restaurants at both ends and various function rooms and the check-in desk laid out on... More

The hotel was fabulous, great architecture and great amenities. This is a place where personalities of old stayed here: movie stars, politicians, movers and shakers. The place has serious history. My wife and I loved everything about it. We could see the ocean from our window. The grounds smelled of so many flowery scents. There was a lot of tennis... More

The hotel is grand and can be seen as you cross the bay bridge from San Francisco. It is used by guests and locals alike. My experience was average, no proactive service was experienced. The rooms are old although they would tell you they have "character". The TV is clumsy and the room doors stay open (no door closer) which... More
