The Claremont is a beautiful hotel filled with Berkeley history, but it is the kind and gracious staff that make this a wonderful place to stay - especially Shabnam at the front desk. The pool and spa are lovely and enough reason never to leave the hotel during your stay!

This hotel falls into the grand old hotels category and is high up over Berkeley. We were there over graduation week and the atmosphere was rather joyous. Overall the hotel is very good but not outstandingly so. Breakfast is nice, but I's suggest to go to Rick&Ann just down the road.There is a simple free spa in the main building... More

We had been looking forward to staying here for our son's graduation since he began at Berkeley and it was to be a big treat. Unfortunately we didn't manage to check in until after dark and it wasn't until the next morning that I opened the curtains and saw the worst view from a hotel room I have ever experienced!!...

Busiest or one of busiest weekends of year, booked up hotel. We stayed four nights. From first night thru third day, our room keys NEVER worked. For over a dozen times - returning to our room, from being out, being at pool, at bar, dining, whatever - room key did not work. Everytime, we had to obtain hotel personnel to... More

We must ask that you accept our most sincere apology for the inconvenience you endured during your visit.

If we have an opportunity to resolve matters by relocating guests to other accommodations, we certainly do all... More

You stay here because it's close to somewhere you need to be -- or someone you haven't seen in a while. You try hard to like the old girl. The long hallways. The balky door locks, the touchy parking lot barriers. The extension cords, the torn sheets (they were soft...), the bottlecap opener screwed to the vanity. The staff are... More

Classic old style dated hotel in a very good location if you are going somewhere in Berkley or Oakland. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The spa was ok nothing special. The restaurant was average at best. The drinks were very good and the service was excellent.

Everyone should stay at one of America's grand hotels once in a lifetime. Sure the Claremont is expensive but the elegant surroundings, the flowers, the warm service are all excellent. Pricey plus you must pay $30 to park!

This was our second one night stay at the Claremont. We've never been there long enough to enjoy the pool or the spa, but the common areas and the bar/lounge area were great. We had a view room (distant view over the tennis courts) with a decent "Spring Break" one-night rate. We requested upon check-in that bath robes be sent... More
