........you never know what you'll get. The rooms are very dated and chopped up. We under stand that the Fairmont Group has purchased the property,and there will be some updating. The staff is very professional and make you feel welcome.( there definitely has been some changes for the best over the past 4 years). We find it an oasis in... More

For the money I paid for this hotel (plus a mandatory wifi charge for which I never received access instructions nor cared to use) I was expecting a beautiful, historic, luxury hotel. What I actually received was a motel-like, tiny room overlooking the HVAC system, with a smell reminiscent of my grandmothers house. I'm not sure if the hotel is... More

From the moment I arrived in this historic hotel, I have received superb care from friendly receptionist through passing people and staff. All are friendly, smiling and willing to assist. Food is great with large portions, worth its money, though expensive.

First time staying and I enjoyed it very much! The staff was very friendly, the pool was beautiful and the amenities were great! They will even charge your electric car but you must request this service as it appeared they could only charge one vehicle at a time. I would definitely stay here again.

Twenty-five (or so) years ago I went to Mother's Day Brunch at the Claremont with my mother, her sister and my cousin. It made a sufficient enough impression on me that I was determined I would someday be back as a hotel guest. That opportunity presented itself this year in the form of a Groupon, which I snatched up. As... More

After waiting 30 minutes in a line to check in we finally get to our room which is tired and small. Another 20 minutes and no luggage. When I call to the concierge( no one else answered) I am rudely told it is very busy, it will arrive as soon as possible and she thank you for your patience and... More

We stayed at The Claremont in May while visiting my sister and mom for Mother's Day weekend. It was a charming old hotel with small rooms. The price seemed steep for what it was, but it was nice to try somewhere new. The grounds were lovely and well maintained. I don't know if we would stay there again, but it... More

We live right across the Bay in San Francisco, but we had never been on the Claremont property. So, we decided to have a "Discover Berkeley Day" and spend the night. It was terrific. The Claremont is truly a place where you can check in and just stay. We had drinks and dinner at Paragon, and it was very good.... More

The hotel is beautiful. The valets and front desk staff are friendly and efficient. The elevators are a tad slow and small (but that's to be expected when the hotel is this old). The rooms were sizable and elegantly appointed with comfortable beds with numerous pillows, a desk and chair, and a side chair and big walk in closets. The... More

The hotel is beautiful and has elegant charm. I was so happy to have the chance to stay there and enjoyed the facilities and property but I'm a light sleeper so I never had a good night sleep. Unlike modern rooms where you might have a hallway after entering your hotel room and then getting into the sleeping area, once... More
