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

We came to Berkeley for a mid summer family mini break after having read about the hotel's history, great amenities and atmosphere. Whenever you mention the name "Claremont" to Bay Area locals they always tell you how wonderful it is. I guess they have never actually stayed here. We should have realized our mistake when we were directed our "bay... More

You can't sleep in the lobby but you will wish that you could after you sleep one night in your room. This hotel stay that was so disappointing. The only bright spot was Frank at check in. He arranged a room change after our first night. From there it just got worse. A very young bellman (wish I had his... More

I was actually really unimpressed by this hotel. Sure, it's beautiful, but the amenities you receive & the customer service just don't match up with the price you pay. The hotel rooms are desperate for a remodel, and the bathrooms are TINY in the smaller rooms. I stayed there the weekend of my sister's wedding, and we upgraded our room... More

We stayed the first couple of nights while being in the bay area. The hotel is clean, friendly stuff and a great pool area. We had an upgrade to a larger room which was perfect for our three kids to have enough space.

I stayed here for one night for a business meeting. This is a historic hotel steeped in ambiance of an old fashioned Victorian. A lot of history to absorb - I would have given this an excellent save for the fact that it doesn't have the modern upgrades of a really 4 star hotel and service was a little spotty.... More
